A touch of the old country in Venice.

Great, gourmet, european-style pizza. Eat outside in the grape arbor side yard. Salads are also very good. Split a salad and a pizza with a bottle of wine. What's not to like? It is small, but that make it charming and intimate. We go here one a month or more.

Ordered a small individual Margarita Pizza (fresh tomatoes, basil and cheese). Asked for extra basil due to the fact last time I was there had same pizza with very little basil. Menu says fresh basil and patio is lined up with many basil plants. No shortage of basil. Pizza still had very little basil..no more than previous time. When check... More

We visited Scamotz one evening after it was recommended to us by a friend. We were very happy with the pizza & garlic knots. It was a comfortable environment & we will definitely return. It doesn't seem to be easy to find thin crusted pizza in Florida but their pizza is good.

We did get great service but it's priced way to high. The sauce on both pizzas eere really sweet. Abd the balsamic dressing for the caprese was chunky and sweet

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

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!

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
