I was not a massive fan to be honest. The pistachio ice cream did not even taste like pistachio. I feel that tour reps take their tours here which has falsely increased the number of reviews. Also, I did not appreciate the fact that the...shop server did not warn us it was cash only and forced us to go to the nearest ATM which would not allow less than 50 euros cash withdrawal and charged roughly 5 euros. I was so disappointed with my ice cream that I walked a little further to Alice Gelato which was substantially better and 100% natural ingredients. Highly recommend Alice! ( they accept card too!)

Amazing caramelised fig and ricotta ice cream! Also tried the salted caramel one that was good, but not as amazing as the fig one!

Found by accident while wandering during the evening, saw it was open and had an ice cream each and I got one of the best chocolate milkshakes of my life. The gentleman who was running the shop was also so helpful and kind. The nicest...ice-cream we had in our whole trip to Portugal!More

Ricotta & caramelized fig, lemon, rosemary & honey, salted caramel...some totally original flavours and others we knew, but with the 11/10 version. Honestly the best ice-cream I've had to date. I wish I could wish myself back there. Friendly, helpful staff too. Don't miss it....♥️More

I tried a 2 flavours ice cream with chocolate and lemon with rosemary which was awesome. Both of them very tasty, specially the lemon which was very original. The owner was very nice.

There honestly isn't too much to say here except that the gelato here is terrific. Lots of interesting flavours executed to a really high level, and you can tell it stands out from your average gelato shop. Worth a visit for sure!

This place is the real deal. Go here. Chocolate is fantastic. I've had it 3 times. Not sure why other review said something negative about it. Panna is a big hit with my group as well.

Gelato is therapeutic if it is good and this place is divine! If you have had Felton Italy this is very comparable, smooth and rich with flavor!

We stopped by on our recent trip to Lisbon. It’s a cool shop. Who doesn’t want “gelato Therapy”. 😂 Maybe I picked wrong flavors but chocolate was just mediocre. I liked banana flavor. My husband liked pistachio. Our sever was OK. Usually they are much...friendlier In Lisbon.More

Can only agree with other reviewers who think this is the best ice cream in Lisbon! Delicious and great taste combinations. Small but easy to find on the corner by the traffic lights, Enjoy.

My girlfriend loves ice cream and we were looking for some really good gelato in town. Found this place on TripAdvisor and we happened to be in the area so we decided to go. Had the most wonderful experience. Tried basil and then rosemary ice...cream, both blew me and my girlfriend’s mind! I ended up going with a mango and orange ice cream, that was also delicious! Easily among top 3, possibly the best ice cream I have ever had. Very pure taste and not too sweet. Not cutting any corners on quality. Staff was also just wonderful, and this place deserves a long line of customers outside of it. Seriously, if you see this and you love ice cream. Then go! All love to the staff there and the owner. They seem like amazing and kind people too!More
