Excellent and very pleasant - Rialto bridge area

If you are in the Rialto bridge area, this is an excellent place for a lunch break, great variety of thin and thick crust pizza, all home made and very tasteful. Service is fast and very pleasant, highly recommended.

This place sells fresh pizza with good tasty ingredients for a cheap price. From the moment you go inside you don't wait long to get your order and the pizza slices are quite big and satisfying. The one thing it doesn't have is seats, but perhaps this is what makes it cheap. For grabbing a quick meal while visiting the... More

A must try when in Venice. There are so many pizza choices. Before serving, they will make the pizza hot in the oven. Taste is amazing, thin crust is crispy and light.

Nothing fancy, just good pizza for a good price. Reasonable drinks and a LITTLE space to eat if you don't hit a rush. Good people behind the counter. We went there twice in 4 days.

All the pizza looked so good it was hard to decide what kind to get. My husband and I both got a slice and a beer and stood at the bar/eating area inside and ate and drank. Very friendly staff and the pizza was some of the best we had on our trip. Good atmosphere!

Popped in, managed to find elbow space for the family. Bought 4 slices, 2 beers and 2 sprite. Half way thru - tap on the shoulder - 2 more slices for free because the original 4 were 'too small'. Solid!

Delicious, both the thin and thick crust pizza. Finally a great slice of pizza in Italy. Take note that it closes at 9:30pm.

Probably a 3,5 on my 1-5 pizza-scale. The gorgonzola slice was rly rly tasty. But they preheat the slices so thats kind of dull. They are not freshly baked.

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.
