Reviewed 6 April 2018

Santini is a gelateria with very big Great of flavours in the centre of Porto, really close to Aliados square. The flavours that they offer are different and interesting compared to the other ice cream places. They change the flavours often, I think every week. Remember that you pay first and then you go over with your receipt to choose your flavours. You can try some flavours before choose. The personnel is very helpful and friendly and they speak English.

Santini Porto is a nicely decorated dessert place...”candy stripes” and all. Lots of desserts to choose from; beverages too. Clean. Friendly service. Cash or card accepted. The only reason couldn’t rate that final star is that it’s a little confusing when you go in what the process is if you haven’t been before. So, for you newbies that make a visit...when you go in, walk all the way to the back. Don’t stop at the ice cream counter, go toward the left to the register and place your order there. They don’t need specifics like flavors, they just need the jist of what you are ordering. Then you take your receipt to the ice cream counter and your desserts will be created there. Worth a visit if you’re needing a sweet treat!

The ice cream's flavors are really good and special. I loved the strawberry sorbet. The service is nice, and the design of the place creates a desire for sweetness.
Just a quite expensive.

Great range of flavours in this ice cream parlour in the centre of Porto, not far from the railway station. Clean, tidy place. Confusing in that you pay first, then go over with receipt to choose your flavours!!
