Walk in pizza place with the most amazing, crunchy and tasty pizza ever! Take a thin slice and prepare to lose yourself:) I did not mind much for the idea of a walk in place when there were so many cute little restaurants around but I had to taste and take a bite from my husband's slice... Ended up just... More

Though this joint was small and in an area hard to find , it was worth the try . Their selection of thin and thick pizzas were great and fresh . Also sauces of spices and oil were available for added flavour which I very much enjoyed the extra spice oil. Opted for the classic pepperoni pizza & mushroom with... More

This place did good slices of pizza at an honest price, a good thing in Venice. It is takeaway though so you either need to eat on the go , or buy a box and take the food back to your hotel. At the time of writing it was 3€ for a big slice. My partner enjoyed a warmed wine... More

Great place to pick up a few slices and short walk to sit along the banks of the Grand Canal for a Venetian picnic. Highly recommend the simple margherita version of the thicker, foccacia style pizza. The crust is thick, chewy and crispy and the toppings are light and perfect. Check out faroutexpat.com for more details.

We have been in this restaurant last year,so we know they make excellent pizza. But this time, I wanted to check how God the thick pizza is. And I have to say this was the best thick pizza I ever have. We have tasked all kinds of thick pizza and they are all perfect. Thank you very much for this... More

I waited 8 minutes for my two slices of pizza, but everybody was more important than me. The place is small, the staff wasn't friendly.

Although my boyfriend was like "hmmm, not bad at all, but mine is better", for me it was delicious. We had the thin crust, three kinds of different slices/tastes and it was how suposed to be (meaning, I had also horrible pizza in it's home country). Go for it!

Delicious pizza at a reasonable price! Pizza was fresh and served hot. Great lunch time meal on the go. Some bar stools would have been great to rest our feet but still a great place

If you're hungry when walking the streets of Venice, it's hard to get better Pizza than at Antico Forno. Slices here are large, diverse, an incredibly delicious! The traveling public knows this, because it is crowded with diners, and counter space to eat is a precious commodity (seize it when you see it). The cash-only aspect is the only downside/inconvenience... 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.
