“Potentially the best pizza I've tasted, and I'm a HUGE pizza lover!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

I did a little bit of research on Trip Advisor one morning during our stay, in preparation for the day ahead. This pizza to go establishment was rated highly and had great reviews, so I jotted the name and address down. My Girlfriend & I visited Antico Forno after a long day of walking in the cold and rain. The guy behind the counter was really polite as we ordered a slice of pepperoni pizza and promptly paid our €2.50 (we decided to get one as we were going to walk down a little further and try out some Belgian waffles). As soon as we finished the slice we had to have another one as it was literally THAT good.

We totally recommend Antico Forno to anyone visiting Venice. We're glad we followed the advice of other visitors and would definitely go back again when we visit Venice next.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013 via mobile

Delicious pizza and great variety of toppings. It cost 2.50 euros a slice which we felt was very good value as 3 slices was enough for both of us. Standing room only with a range of chilled drinks on offer. Would highly recommend for a cheap and tasty lunch

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

We had read about Antico Forno on tripadvisor and then randomly walked by it on our first day in Venice and we are so glad we did! Both nights we were in Venice we got some slices of pizza and some drinks and took them to the Rialto Bridge to eat. We found a quiet spot under the bridge along the canal where we could watch the boats go by and people watch. The pizza was delicious and the view was incredible! Tried a few different kinds of their pizza and loved them all!

“Best Pizzeria in Venice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

We found Antico Forno while walking through the bylanes around the Rialto Bridge. Absolutely fantastic pizzas and so cheap! The staff was super friendly!! We visited them a couple of times more during our stay. We were even offered a complimentary drink and delicious garlic bread on our last visit before we left Venice.
