The ice-creams here are to die for! Sometimes there's a line but it moves quickly. The best ice-creams are the fruit ones as they use real authentic fruit to make it.

The first time I attempted to have a Santini gelato, the line was out the door and snaking down the street. The second time, when there was virtually no one in the store and I quickly got my gelato, I completely understood why there was such a line.

There is a reason Santini gelato has been in Cascais since 1949 and serving generations of royalty. The gelato is superb. It has an amazing texture and the flavours are intense.

The gelato is not on display like most gelatarias, but kept in tubs with lids, so you select your flavours from the menu. I got a medium with 2 flavours – hazelnut and pistachio. Absolutely delicious.

We are travelling to Italy in the fall and Santini has set the bar gelatos to meet.

I would advise visiting in the evening, there were no queues compared to ones coming out the door during the afternoon. We had three flavours each time and if I had the time and money I would have tried everyone of the wide variety they had on offer. We went two nights in a row we enjoyed it so much!

The shop is beautifully fashioned in retro white and red leather benches and photos and newspaper clippings proudly adorned on the wall.

Try the: strawberry, chocolate mousse (very rich), hazelnut and toasted almond.
