Cheap +good

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.

It's pizza and my kids eat it nearly every day. It is fast, inexpensive and a great favorite among the students that hang out here in Campo Santa Margarita.

Fast and very friendly service, great atmosphere and on of the best pizzas. For 6.50 € a normal size pizza. Simple without tables, but youcan sit outside in the piazza and enjoy the atmosphere.

For 5 euros, I got a medium size pizza which can be shared with 2 people. Decent taste! Certainly will be back next time I visit venice.

A friend who had studied in Venice absolutely raved about this pizza, but we were pretty unimpressed with our two slices. The location is great in Campo Santa Margherita, it's cheap, and it's fast. But all the other pizzas we ate on our trip to Sicily & Venice were better. Perhaps a whole pie is better than just slices? Not... More

We were tempted by the multiple positive reviews to try Pizza Al Volo, therefore we choose two round normal-sized pizze, a "Gorgonzola" and a "Simpatica" one. Both of us were left with the impression that the ingredients were of mediocre quality, and the time we waited was a bit too much. Not good handling of the queue; moreover, the cashier... More

Cheap prices and quick service, but a somewhat mediocre pizza tomato sauce (a tad too sweet) and (this could be a one-off) the cashier was not very good at counting and handling cash.

We spent four days in Venice and were three days as guests at pizza al volo. Price performance is excellent. The staff are very friendly and the pizzas taste very good. even if there are no seats in the local, it is still a recommendation.

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.
