Handy stop off for excellent pizza for great value. Loads of choice, it's usually quite busy with good staff. Lovely coffee shop 30 metres away to finish

If Alfredos is the place to stop for good cheap pasta, Antico Forno is the place to go for pizza. The four cheese is fantastic - the kids loved it - the best pizza they have ever tasted! A good sized slice is between €2.50 and €4.50 and beer/wine is reasonably priced. We tended to avoid buying fizzy drinks except... More

I strongly recommend this place! It's a quick process of ordering your pizza, being handed it if it's a thin crust or waiting about a minute or two for the deep dish to heat up. I had the spinach deep dish and I can honestly say it's one of the best slices of pizza that I've had. Completely recommend! It's... More

So far we just had found expensive places with not so good food in Venice, this place was a surprise, the thick slice pleasured everybody that were disappointed with the famous italian pizza, which had thin slices until now. Highly recommend.

We loved the 4 fromaggio. Prices were the lowest we saw in Venice. Great location near Rialto bridge.
