We went there with a group of 8 people to have some ice cream, but after we sat down outside, the waitress came and told us she would not serve groups. Her reasoning was somehow that she was alone. It's not like we were a group of teenagers but four couples aged 26 to 40-something. I would not recommend going... More

Big fan of artesan icecream as little artificial shizzle as possible for me. Which is the case at this place. I don't know how to explain but it seems to have very little milk in as well. Very pure. Place is crowded and staff is a bit stressy. 4.10 euro for 2 scoops seems overpriced for Porto standards. However it... More

We tried several varieties of ice-cream (with waffles and crepes, both were great). Everything tasted amazing and the service was good. Might get a bit crowded on sunny days. On a side-note, I got a sore throat from all the ice cream. I regret nothing.

The service was extremely rude! We were going to stay to have a crepe, coffee and some ice cream, but the lady was so rude we ended up leaving instead

I was thrilled to find this cafe as they served the most delicious fruit sorbets. As someone who is lactose intolerant I was delighted to be able to have a cone and stroll by the river. Highly recommended and easy to find.

Refreshing, tasty home made gelato, some of the best we have ever tasted. Finzi tends to be lost amongst the big restaurants but on a hot day their gelato hits the spot.

Lovely place to sit and watch the world go by at the Ribiera Quay. Good choice of drinks and snacks, ice creams and cakes. Didn't know there was such a thing as white port til we went here.

The perfect location near the Douro river, with a beautiful view of Gaia, and D. Luis bridge. The ice cream (homemade) was one of the best that I have ever eaten accompanied with a delightful chocolate brownie... Perfect!

We had a delicious ice cream here. Mine was caramel and dark chocolate and was delicious! I tried the pistachio but wasn't for me, however my partner enjoyed it :)
