Visited Antico Forno due to high trip advisor rating, and was not disappointed. Tasty toppings with delicious thin crust base. Only down was that there wasn't much atmosphere, but since this is a take away pizzeria you wouldn't expect much anyway. Drinks were also quite expensive. Would definitely visit again if we were staying in Venice longer!

Very good pizzas. We taste at least 5 different combinations and all of them were very good. I specially appreciated the spicy one, with red chilli and basil, and the thin, with spinach and mozzarella. Kind service and fair prices.

After reading tripadvisor reviews we were so pleased to find this place just a few hundred yards from where we stayed at ca' angeli. Needless to say we visited a few times and I so wish I could take the place home with me. Such tasty pizza freshly cooked waiting to be tasted. Yum yum yum!!!! And there are so... More

The numerous excellent reviews gave high hopes for this place, which in my experience served very average pizza. The prices were reasonable and the service was friendly, but definitely does not deserve such high praise.

All their pizza is fantastic, but their white pizza with gorgonzola and mozzarella is out of this world. We have gone there 2 days in a row and will probably go there before we leave Venice. Just because.

We looked over several places in TripAdvisor to hunt for the perfect slice. We even tried a hundread year old pizzeria in Rome, which was good but not even as great as Antico Forno. The price alone should be an indication that it isn't the typical tourist trap, since a slice with normal toppings can go for as little as... More

Not disappointed at all!! Amazing pizzas, we ended up buying 2 each. Delicious. Even the thick crust was so crispy and delicious, lots of topping. Do yourself a favour and try one if you're here

We had to stop here several times during our Venice stay as the place is absolutely amazing. Quick, unassuming service and an abundance of pizzas that will make any mouth water! It's a very affordable place for a quick meal, and everyone should experience it while in Venice. We'll definitely be back there next time!

It was our last day in Venice and we hadn't really eaten the proper Italian pizzas that we had been craving for. Not far from the Rialto Bridge, just passed a row of little sourvir shops and 2 euro fruit cup vendors, we found it. It's not easy to miss as the shop front was all about displaying their numerous...
