The best ice cream in Portugal

The best ice cream is in Italy. But unfortunately, you might not be. If you happen to be in Lisbon, Cascais, or Porto, and craving for ice cream, then do go to Santini, instead of buying flight tickets to Rome. Because honestly, their ice creams and sorbets are very good indeed. Don't be... read more

Santini is a heaven for all ice cream lovers! Wide variety of tastes, which slightly changes every day, which makes it the perfect destination for every day walk! ;)

Try the coconut. Did I mention the coconut? Seriously delicious coconut gelato. A friend recommended and raved about Santini's so we tried it at Time Out and can say you need to try the coconut.

You may consider it a bit expensive, but the quality of this ice-creams is impressive. I recommend all the fruit flavors (always in season).

Worth a visit. The cinnamon, peach and passion fruit were all very very good. I also had the caramel which still was good, but didn't hold up to the others.

By far the best gelato I have had in a long time. Bursting with flavour (i had peach raspberry) and a long list of flavours to choose from. Cute uniforms on staff and plenty of seats to sit at out from in between shopping and walking Lisbon. Well worth the visit.

Nothing else to say but the best ice-cream I ever had in my life. We have already tried few flavours and all of them tasted like real fruits. Allow for the queuing at any time of the day but so worth it
