Best pie in town!

I don't care for the interior decoration of the restaurant inside and out, so therefore no points for that. The pizza beats it all. Good crust, very good sauce, great toppings. A little pricy at $32 for 16" large pie with 4 toppings, but very tasty. Good even on the 2nd day! Will return!

This was our FAVORITE restaurant after our last visit. We went twice. So we were really anxious to go back on this visit. The wait staff is SO very friendly, and the garlic knot rolls were delicious, but what we came for was the awesome pizza we remembered from our prior visits. We ordered a fairly standard 12

Unfortunately, the service and quality of food has gone downhill. We used to love eating here, but it is not the same. I hope they can turn it around.

Simple menu done well. Occasionally a special Italian dish but mostly a variety of pizza and a couple of salads. Good and friendly service.

While on a highway road trip, our party of four determined that pizza was in order. Using smart phone technology we followed a virtual bread crumb trail to this hidden gem in Venice, Florida. We were seated quickly by our very personable server. Rob immediately made us feel at home, skillfully offering suggestions while orchestrating the timing of our meal.... More

This wasn't the fist time we noticed that the food was bland. We ate here a few times in the past, and remarked about how tasteless the pizza was. On the occasion, we were out with another couple, and we ordered two pizzas for our table. After about a 50 minute wait, our pizza came, only to find one of... More

Food average . Not much room. No atmosphere. We would not go back. It was a cold day and they sat us by exit door.

I first ate at Scamotz 2 years ago and was excited to have my wife enjoy this restaurant with me last week. We were both quite disappointed. The pizza (Margarita), had very little flavor. While the fresh tomatoes were still quite good, the overall flavor was bland, not at all as I remember from 2 years ago. Interestingly, good friends... More

It's small, but quaint, the owner seems grumpy but he's a teddy bear. The food is superb! The best pizza I have had in a long time. Six white cheese pizza and the Eternal Summer salad are my favorites. So don't miss Scamotz before you go to the Theater. They open at 5:00 but Bill will let you in to... More

Best summer salad. Best home made pizza pie. Bill and Emma know how to make your food experience special.
