“The best gelato in Lisbon -- Best in the World?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

Over the five days we spent in Lisbon, we visited Santini's four times. Each time trying a different flavor. What a treat! If only they had some locations in California! This has got to be the best ice cream I have ever tasted!

“If you like ice cream, this is THE place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

The flavours are great, although sometimes some of them are not that well achieved, but that's not a problem because you can taste before you order!

“Outstanding gelato”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

From the gelateria of the same name started 50years earlier in cascais, you won't regret a visit to this place that has some of the best ice cream I've ever had. Especially the persimmon which is amazing

“Amazing icecream”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

We came across this place by chance and what a find it was. Plenty of great flavors to choose from so you won't be stuck for choice :) Only downside is the prices but it is well worth trying the ice creams.

“A must do in Portugal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

The coconut and pineapple were my favorite flavors. It's expensive, 4.50 euros for what would be considered a small cup ( it is a medium here).

The place is cool. The ice cream packers are nice. The fruit flavors are supposed to be the big hit. I wasn't a fan of the melon. Or the mango.

Open til midnight.
