When I passed by, not going to lie, the queue was going all the way out the door. Perhaps, not surprising in 35degree heat, but it is well worth the wait! Best ice cream I have ever tasted!!

Good flavours, italian name but not italian standart. Very expensive when compare with italy. And Portugal is much more poor than us. Long line waiting.

This was the best ice cream we had while in Lisbon and is definitely a must-visit! There was definitely a line-up but it went quickly. Be sure to know what you're ordering by the time you get to the front of the line because you don't want to be the cause of the backup!

The ice cream was so amazing, we went back several times for more. Amongst our favourites were coconut, chocolate, hazelnut, raspberry, mango and melon....all delicious and fresh. The service was professional and friendly. Simply the best!

2,70 per scoop of two flavours. Not cheap, but not a robbery either. I ate there twice and tasted melon dew, rasberry, passion fruit, almond, hazelnut, chocolate, chocolate chips - all very good. The waffle cone is also good. The place can be crowded and you might have to wait in line for a while, but it is worth it.... More

You should expect a c.10 minute queue, but totally worth the waiting. Natural flavours, great selection, and a special atmosphere.

Very nice ice-cream but expensive. Expect to queue. Definitely a tourist attraction. Wouldn't buy again.

Feeling hot in Lisbon’s sunny summer? Try Santini’s ice cream! It’s been around since the 1st half of the XX century, and the original owner (business still in family) came from Italy, so all the expertise is there, conjoined with the best portuguese ingredients.
