Best pizza

Excellent pizza! It was very busy when we went so the chef was bringing out fresh pizzas from the oven every few minutes. We went back for more after our first slice. Definitely make the time for a visit!

A great selection of thick and thin crust pizzas. We grabbed slices to go and walked to the nearby grand canal to enjoy. At around 3-4 euros per slice it's a great quick meal. The best part was enjoying it on the canal ( we also had a bottle of wine in our backpack the second time so that made... More

A meal in two slices of pizza - that's what you're getting here. In a place where food is very pricey, this small - eat while you stand up - pizzeria is exactly what was needed. Had it for lunch today and wandered down two minutes to the grand canal to sit by the banks, watch the gondolas and take... More

If you want to chill out for a moment and grab a slice of pizza for lunch, dinner, or whatever, this place is one of the best choices in Venice. The pizza is very delicious and super cheap. They also have thick crust but I preferred the thin pizza. Many different choices as well. Enjoy.

Thick and thin pizza, this pizzeria did not disappoint. The flavours were great and for €3 a slice it was such a bargain. The deep crust was amazing.

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

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.
