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

Whilst this establishment (famed for its Italian Ice Cream's) serves 'nice' ice cream, it wasn't, in my opinion, particularly better (or worse) than others. Perhaps Santini's are trading on their traditional name? If looking for an ice cream be prepared to pay more for it here than at other places!!

Very good ice creams and sorbets, and I would suggest you get a cone. These are a pleasant surprise, made especially for Santini. The place is also very nice, and you can sit down and enjoy the ice cream quietly rather than being out in the rain.

We tried two locations of this great ice cram parlor. One was right across the street from The Couch Museum, and the other one in the downtown area, both were wonderful! Try the cinnamon flavor, one of the best!

A very cute shop and very warm friendly service. We were there late evening. The head of service was so kind and welcoming. He helped us to choose flavours, explained us how they prepare it – they use only real fruit and sugar. You can really taste the fruitiness in it as well as nuts or whatever other. The fresh...

I could eat this gelato every day, and I did. The price is so readable that you can sample new favors every day. My favorite was one made of pine nuts which was deliciously creamy and flavorful. Another day I tried the fruit sherbets and another I went for the traditional flavored. All were outstanding. A small cup with two... More
