Great Take Away Pizzas

This was probably the best take away pizza we had in Venice. Margherita pizzas are €3, topping pizzas are €3,50, thick pizzas are €3,90.

The place is small, so it is the pizza-to-go place. The pizza is really good, many options. Also they are not so traditional, so it is not only margueritta, hawaiianna and so. If you grab an italian beer it gets even better

We stopped here on our way through the tourist rat race that is Venice because we were starved and tired. It was okay pizza... Mine was a little cold but the spicy veggie was my favorite and I did like the thick ctust! It was fine just didn't live up to the reviews...

Huge pieces of crispy based or deep pan pizza for 3 euros! Two pieces and you've a good sized meal. In Venice? 6 euros for a filling, top quality meal??!! Whichever ones we tried - and we had most of the thin crust ones - they were brilliant. Best we've ever tasted.

Yummy pepperoni and margarita. Tiny shop as u can take away or eat inside. The shop is packed, full of people and even around the shop. Got many choices of pizza. Im sure it s more tasty than in the normal bistro.

Randomly located pizzerias are the best. This came recommend from Conde Baste Traveler. So glad we happened to walk past it on our leisurely walk through Venice. There were people crowded around the counter so we knew immediately it would be worth the wait. We tried a slice with tomatoes, broccoli rabe, and sweet sausage. It was perfectly crunchy on... More

It is on a main road and not on the address shown in many guides (including tripadvisor) so it is easy to find (if you google it first). The pizza is good but there is no obvious queue line so you have to be lucky to order.

Not sure if it's great pizza, especially at 3 euros a slice. Location makes it easy to get to , so it's really busy as it is on a much traveled street.

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.
