The ice cream here is simply very nice. We liked the system they have there a lot: first you select a size and pay for it, afterwards at a different counter you choose the flavors. This way the big line didn't took too long. Also they had many people behind the ice-counter so it went very fast. Not too expensive... More

We passed through Santini after using the "Santa Justa" elevator and visiting the Largo do Carmo. It was quite crowded, but they work very quickly and soon we had delicious ice cream. Worth it, if you are in the center of Lisbon. There is an entrance to the "Baixa/Chiado" metro station across the street.

Best ice cream in Lisbon! You need to try all the fruit ice cream flavours but specially strawberry and manga! The season specials are also great!

Passed by a few times, saw huge lines and so I knew it was a place with great gelato. Was in the area tonight and noticed no lines. As such, went in to get gelato. 2.70 Euros for one scoop with a cone. The cone was the crispest cone I have EVER had!!!! It was extremely yummy. One scoop really... More

Slightly pricey, but worth it for the creamy texture and amazing choice of flavours. A small cup/cone is plenty, and they generously include 2 flavours in the price. I recommend nata and cinnamon - to recreate the famous Portuguese pastel de nata pastry. Yum!

Traveling with children you always seek out ice cream restaurants. As much as we say it's for them, most adults also enjoy this cool treat. When in Lisbon, you MUST try Santini's! Without a doubt it is the best ice cream that you will ever taste. The flavours are out of this world and all and I mean all taste... More

Pleasant place, ice cream was okay but not the best we had in Lisbon and certainly had much better ice cream in Italy and France.

When I passed by, not going to lie, the queue was going all the way out the door. Perhaps, not surprising in 35degree heat, but it is well worth the wait! Best ice cream I have ever tasted!!

Good flavours, italian name but not italian standart. Very expensive when compare with italy. And Portugal is much more poor than us. Long line waiting.
