We've tried about 7 different gelato shops on our vacation and this was the best, IMO. Try the honeydew melon flavor, so refreshing !

this icecream is one of the best I've ever eaten...I had the 'normal' version - classic flavors: coffee, hazelnut and with chocolate chips and my partner had the fruity version: mango, lemon, raspberry, wild fruits, .... both was so good. glad we tried it!

I remember going to the original branch in Cascais over 10 years ago and i remembered how fresh the flavors were. I went to the new branch in Mercado da Riberia and also to the Rua do Carmo (where i had to wait for 20 minutes!). I particularly enjoyed the Mocha and Dulche de leche. A must visit in Lisbon...

Santini's, established in 1949, has been serving fresh ice cream a long time and it is great! The locals and tourists make sure it's busy with its seasonal flavors along with delicious standbys. Being on a diet while in Portugal is impossible, so go for it!

The old man Santini used to make ice cream for the kings and queens of Italy. The current family members have not lost the original recipe. Try the strawberry, simply devine!

Really creamy ice cream and lots of flavours to choose from. Definitely worth a visit when the queue isn't too long.

Several locals from Lisbon recommended Santini's ice cream - and we went there several times. Highly recommended: strawberry and mango. Get ready to stand in a queue.

Great ice cream! The taste is so real. The to guys selling the ice cream were great as well and had me taste many different kinds before I decided which flavors I wanted. Choosing took a while because they were amazing all of them.

Very long queue, good artisanal ice creams in Lisbon in the area, but not Italian ice cream!!! in a small but perfectly formed red and white cafe. If like me you do not want an Italian ice cream but a Portuguese ice cream because you are in Lisbon and not in Roma, this is the place for you and yes... More
