The owner was locking up when we arrived but opened up again and served us the most delicious ice cream

This place is great! There is a wide selection of standard and unusual flavours but whatever you take is delicious! Not to be missed!

We were so disappointed by Gelateria Alaska. We went there because our travel guide gave it a good review, but the ice-creams mostly tasted like sugar and cream (we were 5 people, each of us had chosen a different flavour). Cones are low quality, and...service is miserable. Oh, and ice-creams are already melting when you get them (I mean, literally, they were dropping on the floor of the shop before I even paid!). Avoid at all cost, there are plenty of wonderful ice-cream parlours in beautiful Venice!More

This place was featured on Richard Ayode The Travel Man t.v series and it looked fab, I knew it was somewhere i wanted to try out on my next visit to the city. It did not disappoint. The gelato was nice. Lots of flavours including...some very random ones e.g. rocket and basil!! All hand made. I had 1 scoop in a cone and my husband 2 scoops in a bowl for the total of 4.50euro. Great value and the owner of the shop was funny and helpful despite limited English. Note: no card payments accepted, cash only.More

We read about this place with many websites saying it was the best gelato in the city. It is certainly nothing special.

I appreciate immensely that everything is hand made but as someone who didn’t eat dairy for ten years, I expected this to be extremely flavorful. Interesting assortment and well-priced.

What an excuse for real gelato. Full of sugar, pretty terrible service. Only saving grace is reasonable value for money

Our Airbnb host told us to go here as it’s the best gelato in the city. My kids loved it (they love all gelato) and my husband had a tasty peach granita with fresh mint which he liked. I had fior de latte and chocolate...gelato and it was, as other reviewers have said, icy and melty. It was fine - but not the best. (The best gelato I’ve had is at Romana in Rome.) Side note: I think sometimes hosts send tourists like me to tourist places so we won’t ruin the actually really good places.More

Flavours looked interesting, but my very small (thankfully) cone had hardly any flavour, and was watery.

We visited here as had read some good reviews on trip advisor but were disappointed. There were many interesting flavours but the ice cream didn't taste that good. It was all quite watery or not milky enough. I'm sure it was all home made though...which is good. We also were not allowed tasters.More
