Good selection of fresh pizzas, very reasonably priced & close to Realto Bridge. We visited a couple of times and were never disappointed. It's also very convenient for a late night snack!

So after spending about 5 minutes this morning on tripadvisor looking for good cheap pizza I found Antico Forno. Depending where you are in Venice you might find this hard to get to but its less then 5 minutes from Rialto Bridge. They have thick (Really thick) and thin (average american, not a Napoli thin) costing 3.90 and 2.90 respectively.... More

Went here with some friends. Bit tricky to find but we made it. Got lucky with no queen when we arrived and we all snapped up a couple of pieces. By the time we left there was a big line out the door. It is the best pizza in Italy without a doubt. Go there! Highly recommend.

My wife and I strolled up to grab a slice around lunch time and we were worried there would be a long line. We got lucky because no one was in line and we were able to grab 2 slices and 2 beers real quick. By the time we were done paying there were 10 people in line behind us.... More
