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

A friend who lives in Belem told me not to miss this, and boy was he right. Over a couple of visits, I had the pineapple, vanilla, and passion fruit. The flavours were extra-ordinary. Like the essence of each fruit in ice-cream form. I highly...recommend dropping by for a quick visit. You can go before or after a one hour visit to the Coach Museum around the other side, and enjoy your ice cream inside or outside. The staff are very sweet and more than willing to offer a taste of something if you're feeling indecisive. Move over Berthillon.More

We were staying about 5 minutes walk away and went in on our way back after a day out. Had strawberry ice cream and it was delicious. Would certainly recommend.

So, i think that is not the best place of Santini's company. In fact i prefer the shop of Cascais but with no doubt this are the best icecreams you can find in Belem!

We had beautiful ice cream us we would expect from Santini's in this place it's just such a shame that location is so un atmospheric and the other thing that's soh off-putting and reminiscent of school dinners is the way that they take a scoop...of ice cream from one tub to another to get that second flavour leaving traces of the original flavor in the Second tub.More

It's quite expensive, the cone is cheap and the flavours are nothing special. I don't understand the fuss around this gelato chain as there are many other nicer ones all around the city.

This restaurant is very modern, only about 2 years old it is very light and bright inside. All designed to show off the ice-cream which was amazing. We had ice cream in a dozen different ice-cream shops in different cities and we thought this was...the best we ever tasted. If you think you are an ice-cream connoisseur, you need to try this. Also it was not expensive compared to some other popular 'luxury' ice-cream brands in Portugal. They serve great coffee too.More

This place worked out amazingly for my family and I. It is located in a great, convenient location in Belem for a great pick me up. The service was fantastic and energetic. My younger brother has many severe allergies and the staff was more than...happy to whip up a special treat for him. And of course, their gelato was the best Ive ever had! I recommend the lemon- its great for a refreshing afternoon treat.More
