We went to Gelateria Alaska because we'd seen they offered dairy-free gelato. They only had three flavors, all just sorbets, but the guy refused to let me sample any of them before deciding (really? EVERY place in Italy lets you sample!). So I went with a mixed berry and the ginger, because it sounded interesting. Hands down, the poorest gelato... More

Really is the BEST gelato we've ever had. Funny, only flavor we didn't like was coconut but we've been to Hawaii and the Caribbean so coconut is better there for a reason.

The gelato was so bad my adult daughter walked back to our hotel and tossed it in the toilet. The product has no taste and was frozen. Ice bits. So was my wife's. Maybe a bad batch but the owner should know and have not sold. If you do go, make sure you ask for a sample first. We were... More

This gelato is delicious!! It's quite tucked away but very well worth the effort to find this place. The flavours are unique and authentic, non of the coloured commercial gelato you find on every corner. This is the real deal!

We decided to try this place after dinner as the sun was setting... We barely made it in time! Actually, the store was closed but the owner was still there and he was nice enough to serve us anyways. The gelatos were good, but not great. I guess I was expecting more. The strawberry one tasted bland a little bit.... More

This artisanal gelateria has some very tasty ice creams, with some interesting flavours, such as Rucola! It was certainly delicious, all I could recommend would be to buy 5 scoops not two!

We made a special trip to find Alaska. Needless to say we had to cross over half of Venice to find it. Alaska had very good gelato but I would make the trip only if I was in the area.

In many guide I read it was recommended, but it did not live the hype. I was so excited when I arrived, because of some original flavors, but the ice cream itself it is not that good. As some reviews says it is very watery

Not sure how this place got the reputation for being ?the best gelato? It's not. It's watery, icey, messy and more like a slushy.

Have been in Italy 2 weeks, having a nearly daily dose of gelato, this was so very bad. The fruit flavors were flavourless and full of chunks of ice, the cream flavours tasted industrial. It was the first place that wouldn't let us taste first - a bad sign. The people who gave this a good review have not had... More
