“Best Portuguese Ice Creme”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Loved being in line with locals, and one of my pet peeves are ques! But since you are on a vacation in Portugal, not Italy or New York, enjoy being a local. This is an Iconic Ice Creme store and grateful to my Portuguese friend for introducing me to the first ice creme parlor on my journey.

They also make ice cremes representing fruits in season. Someone is crossing their T's and dotting their I's after how many centuries in business. Kudos To Santini's!

“Best ice-cream on earth. Avoid queues buying a prepaid card”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Best ice-cream on earth. The same as the original one in Cascais.
€2.5 each and many flavours.
Expect long queues, but worth waiting. You will notice the place when passing by Rua do Carmo, because of long queues.
Frequented by locals for many years now.

“Just another place for nice ice-cream”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

They have a lot of interesting flavors of ice cream, but you have to wait too long to get one, because everybody want an ice cream from Santini. And it's not the best ice-cream you wil ever taste. I think italian ice cream is much better. Another disadvantage is that you don't see what you get, but you have to choose from a catalogue.
