Wow, best pizza ever

The tastiest pizza I've ever had. Not usually too bothered about pizza, but would go back to Venice just to have another slice.

Probably some of the nicest pizza I've ever had! The bread was so thick but light and airy and toppings so fresh! Highly recommended!

Really great pizza at this hole in the wall type place near the Rialto Bridge. So many people and so much turnover that you know its fresh. Bases were superb, and toppings just what you come to expect from good Italian pizza! Great value lunch stop and super friendly staff!

If you are in Venice, you must try this joint. It is a small pizza joint near Rialto Bridge. There are a lot of pizza varieties (Both Veg/Non-Veg) with different bases at a very reasonable price.

We had walked in Venice all day and couldn't resist the pizza in the window. It was some of the best pizza we have had in Italy. We were very happy we discovered this little pizza place, then we checked on TripAdvisor and it was at the top of the list. Great place, good prices.

The pizzas tasted very good and the prices were not expensive. There were a lot to choose from and the staff was friendly. There is only standing room.

Any loyal New Yorker will have to grudgingly admit that this place can compete with the best of them. There is a huge assortment for both meat lovers and veggies and they all seem to taste great. a very non-assuming place, just solid service and great pizza. There is both thin crust as well as Italian think and all sorts... More
