The texture of the gelato was great but we had peach and lemon which probably were not the best choices. The peach tasted a little minty, the lemon was good but not 'WOW!' So go for the original flavours instead.

Every Gelateria we tried seemed to be better than the last and Gelateria Alaska was no exception. It was the very last gelato we had in Venice and it was so worth it! The prices are much cheaper than other gelato places we checked out - Bonus! Wish we had discovered Gelateria Alaska earlier in our trip as it was... More

We went out of our way to find this place. It was worth it, the pistachio flavour was so fresh and the lemon was refreshing. Both tasted real and not artificial. The owner was not rude, as was mentioned in another review. Well priced for real flavour.

I'm not sure why so many different guidebooks and writers recommend this so highly. We happened to pass it on our way from the train station to the hotel, so we stopped. I didn't want an exotic flavor, but there weren't any to choose from (.which is part of the reputation. I got lemon. It was good. The lemon was... More

After making our way from Ca'Rezzonico, Carlo Goldoni's House, and then the Frari Church, we decided to find Gelateria Alaska. We wandered around for a charming bit then got annoyed after the wandering kept going and asked around A LOT until we finally found it. It was delicious and a lovely reward after persevering and locating it. I had pistachio... More

The taste of the gelato is natural but it is too melty. It is worth a try. The owner didn't allow us to try. His attitude makes me think twice before I come again.

Guide book pointed us this way for flavors like arugula and artichoke. I am no stranger to odd flavors in ice cream, witness my love of Salt & Straw in Portland Oregon, but this was just bad gelato, compared to any other, in Italy or elsewhere. Plus, the guy was rude. Slip it, I'd say.

We went because of the reviews and found the selection very interesting. I decided to go for my all time favourite of pistachio but found it lacked flavour. My husband only eats sorbets and chose a lemon and a mango and whilst the mango was fine the lemon also lacked flavour. I like the idea of this place with its... More

Staying in Santa Croce

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Croce
Santa Croce gained importance as a sestiere (district) when Piazzale Roma was created in the 1930s to bring cars and buses close to the center of Venice. Constitution Bridge spans the Grand Canal linking Piazzale Roma to the train station. This area buzzes with energy from travelers and students. Historic palaces and former industrial buildings house some departments of Ca' Foscari and IUAV Architecture universities. On the Fondaco dei Turchi, Venice's Museum of Natural History offers Venetians prehistoric thrills, plus an overview of lagoon fish and wildlife. The Grand Canal, northern boundary of Santa Croce, is lined with palaces and decorated by the tall green dome of San Simeon Piccolo. Ca' Pesaro attracts Venetians to its contemporary art exhibitions. The Grand Canal exposes only one face of these buildings. On the opposite side, the palace often interacts with a square or a busy street to represent its neighbourhood identity.
