After spending a week in Italy we were craving a deep dish pizza. This place had in credibly deep dish and thinner crust pizzas as well. Also a large variety of flavors. We both got deep dish and it wasn't as good as we had hoped but not bad either. It was a nice change of pace for us and... More

We visited this highly recommended stand up pizza restaurant after reading about it online prior to our trip to Venice, and we were not disappointed. The pizzas were cheap (€3 per slice) and very well made. We ordered a pepperoni and mushroom pizza on our first visit, and as it was so good, we came back on the 2nd day... More

This is a stand up and also a stand out pizza place. One slice of pizza and a beer was plenty for lunch with an average price of €14 for 2 with 2 beers, the pizza on its own would be about €3 each. Top value and really delicious. Lovely lady serving too who warns you of which are spicy.

A MUST when in Venice! Best Pizza!! The best thing is that you get lost a bit in Venice while searching for the place. You choose your pizza, you sit on a small bar waiting for it to be done. It's literally a small "forno". Pizza is so tasty, crunchy and fresh from the oven. Loved the whole experience!!

Venice is simply spectacular! But finding good Italian food -- strangely -- can be a problem here. If you are in any other Italian city or town, it's almost impossible to get a bad meal. But because of the flood of tourists coming to Venice, there are a lot of marginal restaurants. Our Italian friends have said that more and... More

For 16 euros we bought two traditional pizzas prepared in four flavours just for us! We took it to seat just by the Canal Grande (Antico Forno is close to the Ponte Rialto). It was really awesom! With a great view, just in the sun, with amasingly tasty pizza!!! Grazie Antico Forbo and Venezia:-)

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.
