Really good find! Pizzas are very tasty and reasonably priced (not always an easy requirement to meet in Venice!). Highly recommended.

Here you can enjoy some of the best pizzas. It is a fast food type of store but the quality is the best. The prices are very reasonable, quite cheap, especially for Venice's standards, It is not easy to find the location

I found this place in TripAdvisor and wanted to try in our last night in Venice. It was written that they do the best pizza in Italy :-) and I was wondered if it is true! With my husband, we bought 4 slices of pizza (and just paid 10 euros) and our comment in one word: EXCELLENT! Perfecto Uno :-)... More

What a great find! My wife and I wanted to stop at a random place to get some pizza for lunch. We noticed a little place with a line out the door and checked it out to see what it was. Oh man, we easily saw 12 different kinds on pizza for sale in both thick and regular crust. The... More

We went to this pizza place from a recommendation - and weren't disappointed at all. If you're looking for fresh hot pizza served quickly, go here. It's always busy (good sign, and it means the pizzas are hot and fresh) and you can walk towards the grand canal and find a spot to sit and people watch while you eat.... More

Big selection of pizzas to choose from at a reasonable price! Nicest pizza we ate in Italy, worth the effort to find!

If you are in Venice and looking for the best pizza in town drop by Antico Forno! Great food, nice service and venetian atmosphere! Don't expect anything fancy or elegant. It's just good pizza to go, but surely worth going to!
