Really the best!

Loved the ice cream! So good! Long line but it went fast to get your ice cream! Very tasty! You understand why it's so popular. Also friendly staff. It's small so it's hard to find a seat. But it's better to take your ice cream with you outdoors and sit in a square.

When I first tried ice cream at Santini, I was feeling, that every other ice cream I have tried before was a fraud. They are fresh and extremely tasty. If not Santini, you can get such a good quality only in Italy. Long story short - definitely worth trying!

Fantastic fresh high quality ice cream. The fresh fruit is the best but there are many flavors to choose from. There is a shop in Chiado in Lisbon, one in cascais centre and one in sao Joao centre. Be prepared to wait in line also not cheap but worth it.

The sorbet should apparently be fantastic, but they seemed a bit boring and like they were made of fruit juice rather than real fruit. The ice cream weren't spectacular, but average. The cones weren't nice either and tasted like wafer. The atmosphere was lovely and so was the staff members. They probably don't make the ice cream and sorbet themselves.

Small little place with great, great ice cream. We went there after lunch and liked it so much went back after dinner. The chocolate, strawberry and carmel were great. The ice cream cones are like nothing we have ever had. Go for the cone, not the cup. Great ice cream. All the reviews were correct.

I was impressed wIth the gelato here. The flavors I chose were all excellent but others in our small group were not happy with the melon selection. Maybe best too sick with the basics. Pay first at the register on the left as you enter then hand your receipt to the counter attendants and tell them what flavors you want.... More

Best ice cream I've ever had in my life! But when you go try to make sure you don't necessarily go after lunch or dinner because the lines will be intense.
