Brilliant Pizza

This is some of the best pizza I have ever eaten. We ended up going back here a couple of times - it makes my mouth water just thinking about it! Be aware that there is nowhere to sit so best for a snack or to take away. Drinks are cheap too!

Some of the best pizza we've ever had, and I am not exaggerating! Antico Forno was not only frequented by tourists, but locals too- that's always a good sign. You can eat a slice there, or get a pie to go. There is not a lot of space to stand and eat inside, but the turn over is very fast... More

After a couple of decent pizza forays in Italy this was a revelation. Definitely the best we had while in Italy. Perfect for a quick slice on the run or even a while pie. The price was good compared to the inflated prices of Venice. Check it out.

We strongly recommend this pizza place. It's an amazing pizza at a very good price! It's easy to find and you can buy just a slice and take it to go!

We went there as advised on Tripadvisor and we absolutely loved it! The thick pizza is heavenly and is very much worth the trip! And is just around corner from Rialto Bridge! We had 4 slices of pizza on our second day of the trip, 2 thick ones and 2 thin ones with a total of 12 euros, very good... More

Hands down best pizza and reasonably priced.. We happened to be walking by on our tour around Rialto and noticed the lines out the door -- usually a good sign so we stopped and are so glad we did.. The crowds are a testament to the quality and very upbeat and friendly service!!!

Once again I have chosen a restaurant based on Trip advisor and didn't regret it! Friendly service, delicious pizza for only 2.5 euros and free wifi!!! What more could you ask for?
