Really natural flavours. Mango, raspberry, passion fruit are so natural. Small cup 3,20 euros. Central location.

When you get a craving for a cup or cone off gelato, there are many options in the Chiado district. We typically go to our favorite on Rua Garrett, but this night we thought we'd give Santini a try. First impressions left all off us...feeling disappointed. Could it be a simple ice cream? And not the satisfying gelato we were accustomed to? The depth of flavor was missing, the rich creaminess was absent, and the peqano cup only allows for two flavor choices, rather than the three choices we had come to love at our preferred spot. Santini is good, but not amazing good, which is what we expected. For us, we'll pass by Santini to go to our old hang out on Garrett.More

Have never tasted a better icecream than Santinis'. Was walking towards Belem with my family and saw a graffiti on an overhead bridge that said "this way to the world's best ice cream". So we followed in that direction and reached at Santini. Would you...believe I ate 5 scoops of icecream. My wife was surprised too😃. The following night we went to Timeout Market for some sea food and I was excited like a 4 year old to see Santini. Guess what we had our icecream treat again!!! If you're in Lisbon don't leave without trying this amazing icecream. My favorites were Mango, Raspberry and Passion Fruit.More

The hype is real. We recommend a small (you don’t need much more than that if you’re walking around) of chocolate and raspberry. Mango is good too, but passion fruit you can probably live without.

Best ice cream in Lisbon, also safe for coeliacs (staff will open new tub and use clean utensils, multiple gluten free flavours) which is just great!

The chocolate cake with ice is delicious. Prices are okay and the staff is friendly. The interior design of the shop is really nice and the colors are cheerful

They have been around since 1949..... the Gelato is bursting with flavour. You pre pay before you order. Worth a stop especially if a hot day.

Visited this icecream shop for the first time yesterday, despite visiting Lisbon many times over the past 20 years, and found the icecream fantastic, definitely the best ever and very reasonable. Will be visiting it again today.

Nice place, recommended by a local. A little hard to find but well worth it because the street is does not run down to the river.
