While seemingly anonymous amongst a thousand places to eat in Venice, the takeaway pizza place Antico Forno is an absolute must. Displaying their variety of pizzas in their small window, it's easy to see why a queue soon builds. This is simply the best slice of pizza I've ever had. We chose a 'thick' slice which looks a bit stodgy... More

Good selection, good service, good prices. Highly recommended! Note that this is a small place for take out only. The selection of pizzaz is great, both thin and thick crust. This is a very budget-friendly restaurant!

My friends and I came here a couple of times during our stay in Venice. The pizza slice was huge, cheap, and yummy! The best pizza I've had in Italy!

This is always our first meal in Venice! It is unlike any pizza will ever have and sooooo good! Grab a couple of the thick slices, a bottle of Prosecco (for a whopping 8 euro) and squeeze into the counter. Be patient - the place is always packed, but it is worth it!
