My partner and I visited Santini on our 2nd night in Lisbon and went back twice more during our 7days trip. Their nata (cream) flavour is definitely worth a try! Out of the fruity flavours raspberry & mango were really refreshing and tasty. There was no lineup-probably because we went in the winter.

Love this place lots of great flavors and the staff are knowledgeable and outgoing. I personally love the hazelnut flavor and the chocolate is also delicious.

a regular ice cream shop. Different tastes, some of them not available. Go for the other pastries such as the " "best" chocolate cake in the world"...

My favourite gelato in the entire world. I would fly back to Portugal just for this! You cannot go to Portugal and miss this place! You will have to come back at least twice a day to try all the amazing flavours!

I don't use to eat an ice cream during the winter but, who can resist to taste one of the best in Europe (as many people afirm?!). Try to taste a chocolate & lemon cone for 2.90€. Yep!

If you love ice cream and fruit sorbet, then please go to Santini when in Lisbon The best vanilla ice cream I have had, and the fruit sorbet, framboise was fantastic. Treat yourself. Well worth it. One is located in the Chiado district in Lisbon.
