Worth the weight

This gelataria is famed for its ice cream as the longish but fast moving queue testified (5 mins max mid day). I tried a small tub with three flavours; mango (too sickly sweet for me), raspberry (ok) but the lemon was fantastic and very refreshing - ideal for a small snack post dinner.

One of the greatest I had in Lisbon. The history of the place is shown by families photos all over the walls which make the experience even better. Even thought I'm not usually like fruit taste in Santini every taste is great. High recommended for every Lisbon traveller

I tried a cup of their ice-cream. Very tasty and fresh. It felt a bit overpriced though compared to average price for a meal in Lisbon

Even though I tend to like more the shop in Cascais or Estoril (where I live) I liked to visit this shop. And, of course, the product is the same - the absolutely fantastic icecream from Santini! I must say I didn´t like the queue outside (that´s something that bothers me and makes me not want icecream or anyhting...) but... More

What a pitty for such a good product, an excellent ice-cream....very poor employees attending anxious clients this sunday evening,...do not go go and wait for another day or go to the Cascais branch, maybe....avoid these employees, in particular Sofia...she will not pay attention to your order and will end by giving you half of....

The ice cream was VERY good and it was nice to sit at the outdoor tables and watch the people in the street. Friendly staff, good at English.

Santini is a well known spot for good ice creme. We were able to walk right in at night (no lines) and were delighted: the Mocca flavor was perfect and the Mango ice creme refreshing. Will come back

If you are an ice cream fan, you have got to go there! this place has some of the most interesting flavors I have ever seen and tasted and they are all very good! I have been to the Lisbon and Cascais stores and they are both very nice places with the same wonderful ice creams.

If you live in Lisbon you know that you can't escape Santini on a weekend. No chance. The same if you have a free hour after work. Everybody loves Santini icecreams, that's because they are fresh fruit icecreams, home made for several generations. The real deal. But be prepared for a line, as the place is always full. Although is... More
