Went two days in a row. Very crispy and terrific flavor. It's a stand up or take away place, but well worth the visit. The pepperoni has some spice to it and the four cheese pizza was also excellent. A must visit!

Because the pizza was so good we managed to come here twice, in our short stay in Venice, even though there was quite a bit of walking from our hotel. There are no chairs, but the restaurant is always crowded with people. One of the fun parts of eating here is just standing around and wait for a hot new... More

This was our favorite slice of pizza during our trip through Italy. I believe each slice with the toppings was 2.70 euro. What made this pizza so special was the spicy oil that they have on the counters. SOOoO Good!

So this is a small pizza shop close to the Rialto bridge. Pizza was great, service was great. Wine in a little barrel on the counter for 1 Euro. Does it get any better?

If you are fed up with those overpriced food in this city, try this. I tried two thick slices and a thin one. Personally I prefer the thick ones. Be ready for the queue!

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.
