This is really the best icecream of Portugal.

After arriving by train in Cascais, the best thing you can do is first get an icecream at Santini, because they know how super icecream should taste.

Was underwhelmed by the gelato, but the staff is wonderful and the shop is very cute. You pre-pay and then go through the line, which makes the line go quickly.

I had the coconut and the green apple. It was amazing. The coconut was full of small shredded coconut pieces. No line hardly at all, but we were there later in the afternoon. Yum!!

This is a very popular place in Lisbon and can get really busy but it's well organized and the line goes down quickly. Lots of good flavors, staff are quite friendly, samples no problem, don't forget the magic word! Pleasant place to hang out in Lisbon, day or night.

Came here after trying other ice cream elsewhere, this wins hands down! The small tub was big enough and means you can choose two flavours, so I had coffee and hazelnut, both of which tasted of the real thing.

My friends and I were looking for ice cream late at night, and we stumbled upon Santini. It was the best accident ever - the ice cream is so good, we've been back every day for the past 4 days (the cashier now recognises our faces). Recommended: coconut, orange with strawberry, coffee, yogurt, and lastly, chocolate with hazelnut. Caramel a... More

Ice cream is their specialty, although they have other choices. They have many different flavors, sizes, cones, cups, etc. Our kids were asking to go back.
