Welcomed by a friendly staff member who took our order (cone or cup, no of flavours) and payment, and directed across to the icecream servers who were happy to talk about ingredients and offer samples. All super-friendly (with excellent English, though the blackboard menus were in 4 languages).... More

It even didn't taste ice-cream at all. Very excessive price (6 euros for two small cones) even though the service was good and it offers plenty of choice. I wouldn't reccomand it at all.

The ice-creams are excellent but there are long queues. You can also ask for a half a kilo box or a kilo box to take home. You may have to wait a bit to get a table...

17°C in Lisbonne and we are on 27th of December. After having visited Baisa Halto with my family, we took an Ice Cream before getting home. Mandarina & Pineaple! That was AWESOME! I already know where I'll go tomorow at 8pm.

This is easily some of the best gelato of my life. The only gelato that *might* be better is the gelato that I had at Grom in Milan...and I would be more than happy to have Santini in Milan, as well. I found the mango flavor to be a bit disappointing (felt almost dead/flat), but the passion fruit, coconut, pineapple,... More

Staying in Chiado & Carmo

Neighborhood Profile
Chiado & Carmo
The traditionally trendy "Chiado" (literally, "squeak", the nickname of a 16th century poet) offers plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars where you can stop for a cafe or cocktail, after exploring its streets, shops, art galleries, theaters, museums and viewpoints. It's also the home to the statue of the famous statue of portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa, having is usual espresso at "A Brasileira" as he used to. You can also enjoy breathtaking views of Lisbon from the Elevador de Santa Justa or the Carmo Convent, for example. A commercial neighborhood at its core, especially for its Garrett and Carmo streets, Chiado is to this day a mandatory visit in Lisbon.
