“Excellent ice-cream, probably the best I had”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

Prices are high (€ 3.50 for a small cone), but you can put as many flavours as you want. This because the icecream is served in petals rather than ice cream balls. Very good selection and staff is very kind.

Top tip: 1. Go mid morning, can get very crowded

“The real story...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013

Visited Amorino three times while I was in Lisbon. Let me just say that the gelato here is absolutely delicious. The way it works is you pay for either a small, medium, or large cone. No matter what size cone you get... you can have as many flavors as can fit on your cone! Also, the ladies serving the ice cream shape it into a flower. Yes, it is a little expensive for gelato {4.50 for a medium cone}. However, you can have as many flavors as you want and it's some of the best gelato in the city...and everybody is looking @ your gelato flower creation as you walk down the street wondering where you got such a sweet looking cone {See my pic}. On a side note, my wife really likes the granita's served here. Very good. Perfect for a summer day and made with real strawberries/lemon.

“Sweet beauty on a hot day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013

What can be better than an ice cream on a hot day full of sightseeing? Just an ice cream served with aplomb. Walked in the nicely furnished ice cream parlor in an urgent need of cooling my lolling tongue. Paid for a medium size cone and was baffled by statement: "Choose as many flavors as you want". Hmm, how are they going to do it? Simply and with style. Forget the boring scoops, here you get an art piece. With a small spatula, the server managed to sculpt an ice cream rose. Very good Lemon and cherry rose, that is. It looked good and tested great. I am just glad I did not get the XL cone. I would probably get a meter long orchid and a brain freeze.

“A nice spot for dessert in the touristy part of Lisbon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

As our week in Portugal progressed, we found ourselves wanting some refreshments in the afternoon. Midweek we were in Baixa, so we stopped at Amorino. My wife had their version of the "drowning man", a concoction which is a cup of coffee with a scoop of vanilla ice cream dunked in it. She proclaimed it as nice, but not as spectacular as the one we got two days earlier in a sidewalk cafe in Bairro Alto (whose name I've misplaced). I just had a coke. I remember the servers there as being very nice.
