There are many places in Venice that serve slices of pizza. As a general rule most of these have been sitting most of the day and look completely "dried out". I have passed some establishments that were putting the pizza out at 9am which I assume was for the lunchtime trade! Antico Forno is a popular place (for those in... 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.

Having found this place on here, I wanted to give it a go. Amazing pizza! We returned a few times during our trip, well worth it.

Just returned from a 10 day Euro trip from the States and stayed in Venice for 3 days. I decided to check this place out because of fellow Yelpers reviews and boy am I glad I did! I ended up going back twice for pizza in the same trip! It's a fantastic sign to walk up and see all of... More

Had lunch here as it's 5 minutes from the Rialto Bridge near our hotel and loved the place. Nice selection of food, great service, pleasant staff, local flavour and affordable. Free spicey oil and selection of spices for those seeking a stronger flavour. Thin crust Pizza was crisp with good topping, thick crust was moist and juicy. Loved both!

The pizzas slices are all good, but try the four cheese and the spicy one...and then repeat it, prefereabily if they just came out from the oven.

Pizza was good and tasty. But I ordered the mushroom & sausage pizza. Didn't really like it...there was red lettuce or cabbage and made the entire pizza flavor taste like a burned flavor. Location is great. You'll pass by this spot more than once and find yourself eating here more than once. They have a cool deep dish style pizza... More
