“Just Do It!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

Take all the positive reviews and believe them..take the negatives and put them down to fussy un-pleasables.
NOWHERE in Venice can you get 2 huge slices of great pizza and 2 drinks for 8 Euros.
Great value, nice staff.

“Fantastic Pizza But”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

First of all let's start with soemthing important Antico Forno is NOT a restaurant it s a snack place
No seats, No service, Don t expect a real restaurant or you will be very disappointed
Now what about Pizzas ?
Well I m a big fan of pizza and those pizzas are among the best I have ever eaten
My favorite was the regular deep pan with only tomato sauce and basil
That's how you know the truth about pizza : Crust and tomato are the key the rest is decoration

FInally, though the pizzas are really good it is hard to understand why the owner don t go bigger and seat his customers> Eatin this great pizza under the rain in the street or on a table corner is really not cool and ruins the experience

Thumbs up for the pizza and hope to come back soon in a real restaurant

This is an amazing place! We went after a rainy day in San Marcos, and I must tell you we loved it! It is delicious, clean, affordable, and fun! they have great music and it is conveniently located nearby the rialto bridge. I tried other pizza places in Venice, this is the best one so far!

“Cheapest and tastiest pizza in Venice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

Whether it's pizza "to go" or "for here", this is the best place to grab one. The place is overwhelming with varieties of huge freshly prepared pizza. There's always one that will suit individual tastes... This is the cheapest but tastiest pizza in Venice (or should I say in Italy?). This tiny place ican be easily missed as the sign is not recognizable but it never run out of hungry tourists devouring huge slices of pizza.
