OK ice cream but it is at the bottom of the Avenida Libertade thus you get sewer smell! The whole area there smells.

Italian ice cream made with a true iatalian recipe. Not much flavours as the usual and modern ice cream stores but the flavors are really tasty. I recommed Passion Fruit and Lemon

Great ice cream and good value, served by friendly people in this small shop which is a bit hidden away in a corner and avoids the crowds.

I've lived in Lisbon all my life, and although I do like the mains competitor of this place (santini), nothing beats the ice-creams of Veneziana. This family owned historic landmark might not be so famous, but it is as delicious and amazing as no other. Try lemon or burnt caramel flavours or try them all, but don't go around downtown... More

Take a break from site-seeing and shopping. Small little shop,, so you will need to eat outside in front on the cobblestone square. You'll be glad you did. Part of the Lisbon experience.

Pay the lady first, then go to the back with your receipt and choose your gelato served in a cup or on a cone. Good gelato in all the typical flavors.

Veneziana has been there "for ever". It is not your modern ice parlor, but it offers very good ice cream with some flavours you don't find frequently, and at very good price. On a hot summer day, you can sit in the terrace, which is in the shade of the buildings around Praça dos Restauradores

Neighbourhood Profile
Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site, Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply "Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755 earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!
