Delicious food with good friendly service

Food variety is limited due to fact that they make everything out of the shwarma thing. But the people are friendly and very nice

Fast food looking joint run by a non-local with crappy pizza and fried food. When there are so many great Italian eateries why go here?

Really good pizza for a very reasonable price. We had 3 slices of pizza and 2 drinks for e$12. If you are looking for a quiet place to stop with simple, good food, you should try this place. It is now called Fritto & Pizzeria.

I was relying an the Venice app on my kindle. We walked to this restaurant only to find that it was not open. Decals were still on the window including the name (so we knew we were at the right location) and one fromTrip Advisor one but the cabinets were pulled out and the whole place was disheveled. No note... More

It was a hot afternoon, we had an hour to wait for our train and so we decided to hunt down Fritto & Frutta due to the good reviews on this website. We really liked this place. The service was efficient and the man serving us was very welcoming. We ordered two smoothies and assorted boxes. It was excellent value... More

As many previous reviewers have mentioned, owner of this place is a really friendly guy. He let us know what the various items were (in good english) and as we were unsure what to order, he suggested a mixed carton . I must say everything was excellent and very tasty. If you fancy a snack and don't want to pay... More

We took a smoothie (strawberry; 3 euro's) as well. It costed 14 euro's. In my opinion it was good fried food (but my girlfriend thought it was... More

We picked up a sea food platter one night along with the zucchini flowers and it was excellent. Wholesome and delicious. The owner was very friendly and the service was prompt. Liked it so much that we went the next evening as well.

Passed by this shop and thought it looks interesting. From memory the reviews on this place was quite decent. However, I thought it was quite disappointing. Ordered a "mixed fish" set for 4 euro only to find myself getting a very small serving of 7-8 small pieces of fried stuffs, mostly squid pieces. There was only 1 piece of fish... More

Staying in Santa Croce

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Croce
Santa Croce gained importance as a sestiere (district) when Piazzale Roma was created in the 1930s to bring cars and buses close to the center of Venice. Constitution Bridge spans the Grand Canal linking Piazzale Roma to the train station. This area buzzes with energy from travelers and students. Historic palaces and former industrial buildings house some departments of Ca' Foscari and IUAV Architecture universities. On the Fondaco dei Turchi, Venice's Museum of Natural History offers Venetians prehistoric thrills, plus an overview of lagoon fish and wildlife. The Grand Canal, northern boundary of Santa Croce, is lined with palaces and decorated by the tall green dome of San Simeon Piccolo. Ca' Pesaro attracts Venetians to its contemporary art exhibitions. The Grand Canal exposes only one face of these buildings. On the opposite side, the palace often interacts with a square or a busy street to represent its neighborhood identity.
