We went to try the very best pizza of Venice. The price was the best, and the hot wine was just perfect to match a cold day of December. If you have an adventure traveler spirit, go to Antico Forno.

I went to this place on a whim because I was craving pizza and it was also raining so I wanted to dodge into some place and get a snack and some refuge. Glad I did! This place is great, I tried the four cheese with the thick crust originally, and then later in the day I ended up coming... More

We were staying up the road in plaza S.Polo and found this little gem walking back and forth from the ferry stop, I'm so glad we did because this is HANDS DOWN the best pizza I have ever eaten. They basically make fresh pizzas as the day rolls on and you pick and choose which slices you want to eat.... More

Venice was our last stop in a two week trip and the pizza here was the best we had! Very affordable and lots of variety. May not be typical Italian pizza but the crust is light and crisp and the sauce and toppings are very flavorful. Thin crust, Rome crust (flaky outside, chewy inside) and thick crust available. You can... More

A local suggested this place to us. It was tasty, but not your typical Italian pizza. The ingredients made it tasty. For me, there was too much bread. Not greasy like the pan pizza one might get back in the U.S. One thing we really liked was this was a good and cheaper option for Venice, and you can get... More

This is definitely a "fast food" kind of place but the pizza is really good. Definitely the best I had in Venice. It's quick and convenient. They do their famous 'super thick' pizza or thin crust. Be careful as it comes up in some of the 'Top places to eat pizza in venice' as a restaurant, which it is not,... More

The pizza was good, not memorable or the best we had. I don't know if it's normal that the pizza chef snacking from the ingredient container using his bare hand.

I visited this place two years ago and now and then we are delicious pizza. Price for o e pieces 3,5 Eur. I can eat a lot but one piece is enough. Yes, local is very small but I don't need to sit and talk to my friends. I want to eat and go on.

If you like NYC style pizza by the slice, this place is a "do not miss." We came here twice (and would have come back again if we'd stayed in Venice longer). We only had the thin crust, did not try the venetian style thick crust slices. Crust was fantastic, crisp and flavorful. Excellent balance of sauce and cheese. This... More

Staying in San Polo

Neighborhood Profile
San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest neighborhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi) stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San Polo is defined by churches including Basilica dei Frari, one of the most important churches sought by art lovers.
