Not far from Rialto Bridge. Good pizza, although I've had better pizza in Rome. It hit the spot for a quick bite when exploring Venice. Service is not to bad. You can order thin or really thick slices . We ordered slices with an assortment of toppings. Already prepared and they will pop it in the oven to heat up.... More

Dropped in for a quick lunch the pizza alto was such a treat. The bread is thick, soft, and crunchy on the bottom -- absolutely delicious! It looks like pan pizza and is, but not chicago style, more like pizza hut but not greasy.

Took us a few minutes to find it but definitely glad we did. Title of the review says it all. And so cheap, with a bottle of Birra Venezia on the side, it was a great lunch after wandering around the streets of Venice. As many other reviews have mentioned, it is street food therefore very little seating space (a... More

It's great for a quick and cheap bite but I don't think it was the best pizza I've ever had. Slices are huge for what you pay. Standing room only.

Pretty good and I like the format. The pizza is to go and is provided hot on a slice of thick paper. Note to Americans - margherita is basically cheese pizza

A recently visit to venice, i had the impression that most of the restaurants are pretty touristic, full of people and not worth it to go at all. Besides, it was a good way to try corner food, or the take way type of restaurant, that you may have a better experience of Italian food and luckily find such a... More

Antico Forno is nestled away not far from Realto bridge and offers great eat in (standing room only) or take away pizza. We've visited Venice twice this year and made sure we popped in both times. A great place to eat if you're on a budget or just want a slice of great pizza.

Visited as a result of trip advisor reviews and wasn't disappointed. My husband and I both had a slice of thin pizza which was lovely .Definitely recommend.

The exact pizza I was looking after a days walking through and around St Mark's Square. Not only does it look delicious, but by far the best pizza I've had! If you're a thick crust fan, then this is definitely the place for you. Additionally, the staff were very friendly, and you can even add the herbs and oils yourself!

Really good find! Pizzas are very tasty and reasonably priced (not always an easy requirement to meet in Venice!). Highly recommended.
