If you like NY style pizza, there is not a better place to eat. It is an old fashioned soda fountain and ice cream shop, but the pizza...YUMMY! When you put the great service with a smile into the package, you have a wonderful total experience. Whatever they do in their training of personnel they should market. The entire staff... More

We were in downtown Venice recently when hunger struck. My husband had a craving for a slice of pizza, and though a restaurant named Soda Fountain probably wouldn't be your first thought for pizza, some friends had recommended it so we gave it a try. Glad we did. It has a nice old-fashioned "soda fountain" feel (go figure!). First impression... More

Stopped in for lunch today and the service and food were both excellent. There were 3 adults in our party and we each had a different entre. Each was delicious! Couldn't resist having some hand dipped ice-cream before we left.......very large scoops!🍧. This is a favorite place on Venice Avenue....great pizza 🍕 too.

I went with my Mother in law and we had a descent time. I ordered a B&W milk shake and was confused by their two sizes. The two sizes were so darn close to one another, i chose the smaller size. I wish they would re-consider their largest size, which should be double the smaller size. If they had, i... More

Best Rubeun Sandwich I have ever eaten! It's a bit rustic but great atmosphere, located off beach. Great shakes!
