Nice place though was not a huge selection of gelato but the ones I had were pretty good, one was like a cookie dough flavour and can't remember the other one, they have a selection of desserts and milkshakes nice place to go when you just visited the elevador de santa justa as its round the corner.

The gelato is very nice. We had coconut and sweet egg flavours. The coconut flavour has bits in the gelato. I have never tried a sweet egg flavoured gelato. This one is really nice with egg yolk in the gelato.

I visited both the original location in Cascais as well as the Chiado location during my visit to Portugal. The ice cream is quite good and you can include multiple flavors in your order based on size. The staff are friendly and good with suggestions/tastings. I would order the ice cream just as it is - I think toppings are... More

This place serves wonderful ice cream every flavour we had was great and we had quite a lot over our weekend in Lisbon. We also tried the famous world's best chocolate cake (i think it is layers of chocolate meringue with ganache) and had raspberry and coconut ice cream with it it was delicious!

Friendly, competent service (if a little slow) and tastefully decorated interiors, but it would be no exaggeration to say any random street corner in Italy will be likely to serve infinitely better ice-cream than this watered down, tasteless slop. Horrifically overrated. You're much better off going to the likes of Casa do Gelado, Pindô, and even Nannarella (which is also... More

We stopped twice--it is a local superstar attraction, and we cannot say no to handmade gelato. We learned that you have to pay first, then go to the counter to pick your flavors. The staff are super friendly here, too.

Our guide recommended Santini for a gelato/ice cream during our stop in Cascais. Many locations with many flavors to choose from. A welcome respite for the road weary tourist.

Passion fruit and raspberry...that's my choice each time when I'm at Santini's! Lovely sorbets! It's bit expensive, but worth trying and you definitely comeback for more...

Order and pay at the cashier and then pick your flavors from the guy at the ice cream counter. We chose quite a few flavors and the strawberry was the best!

Chiado & Carmo
The traditionally trendy "Chiado" (literally, "squeak", the nickname of a 16th century poet) offers plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars where you can stop for a cafe or cocktail, after exploring its streets, shops, art galleries, theaters, museums and viewpoints. It's also the home to the statue of the famous statue of portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa, having is usual espresso at "A Brasileira" as he used to. You can also enjoy breathtaking views of Lisbon from the Elevador de Santa Justa or the Carmo Convent, for example. A commercial neighborhood at its core, especially for its Garrett and Carmo streets, Chiado is to this day a mandatory visit in Lisbon.
