Best Pizza I've Ever Had

No exaggeration, this is probably the best pizza I've ever had in my life, and I've had quite my share of good pizza (in fact, pizza has been my favorite dish since I was a small boy). It was so good I came back later and got the "family" size (around half a meter in diameter); I simply could not... read more

Small, no-nonsense take-out pizza. I stumbled upon it (in St. Margherita Square) a few days before leaving town and have been back every day. 3 Euro for a generous slice and a beverage. This is the best pizza I've had in Venice and it's very inexpensive. Wish I found it the first night I was here. Cannot recommend strongly enough!!... More

Fantastic pizza by the (giant) slice. VERY good value. Was delighted not to be ripped off for a can drink as well. Kids said best pizza in Italy and made us walk back to buy more!

This was a really great spot for a quick slice of pizza (or two) right in the exciting and bustling Campo San Margherita. Cheap, quick, solid. Stand up right at the bar and have a quick lunch or snack - really highly recommended.

Since we were spending a lot of days in Italy we wanted to find some cheaper places to balance the fancier/expensive restaurants on other days. We ordered a whole pizza + a couple of extra slices. The staff were very friendly and prepared everything in just a few minutes. The food was delicious and very reasonably priced. We ate it... More

Great place to go. Just love this pizza. All students were queuing for a slice of pizza or a fulltime pizza.

I studied in Venice for a semester, and I came here at least once a week. A slice of pizza is only 2 euro, which made for a perfect meal when coming back from a weekend of travel. It's also located in Campo Santa Margerita, where many of the Ca'Foscari students hang out, and is open late on the weekends,... More

This reminds me of late night after drinking fast food. It's 2 euro for a large slice of pizza that you carry out on a sheet of paper. ideal after drinking all night and you are hungry but not for a giant 3 course meal at a restaurant. Grab a delicious slice and walk home!

Unbelievably good pizza at €2 per slice. To the people giving this anything other than 5*s they 1) Do not know & love Pizza, 2) Do not understand the concept of a take-away. (The chili oil is out of this world)

Best take-away. For 6 euros you get a delicious thin pizza for 2 people. Unbeatable. Especially the Cappricioza.

Staying in Dorsoduro / Accademia

Neighborhood Profile
Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighborhood with street artists, students, painters, sculptors, restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica buttresses the neighborhood to the east. Gondolas bob in the morning light. The Accademia Bridge crosses the Grand Canal. A back street doubles as basketball court. Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbors exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.
