“Good pizza, great salads, fresh food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Scamotz is a very small, adorable pizza place. The food is obviously very fresh and everything was excellent. It's a small space, so be prepared for wiggling between tables, but it's well worth it. We sat outside in the covered patio and enjoyed all the hanging vines and plants. They were very busy and the servers were friendly, but don't expect it to be a quick meal.

We had a caprese salad and a couple different "cutie" sized pizzas. All unique groupings of flavorings and we'll definitely be back. The caprese salad had a home made balsamic reduction made with honey, cranberries and figs. It was fantastic.

“Love this little find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

I moved to Venice last fall and eat here often. The food quality is excellent and the combinations they put together are great. Salads are the best and quite creative. They just changed the menu the last time I was there and Quinoa Salad fantastic!

“Scamotz!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

We had a group of 12 people they wanted pizza for supper after a day at Manasota Beach. We took them to Luna, 1 hour wait. also a crowd at Taste of Italy. We drove past Scamotz and I remembered an article about them and thought they had pizza. I ran in to check and they apologized for not being able to seat our group together (it is a small restaurant) but quickly got us all seated and got our orders in! Everyone, children included, said their pizza choice was the BEST pizza they had ever eaten! And I agree! Our friends came back the next week and insisted on a repeat visit, with different pizza choices made and all of us were again very pleased! Our waiter both times, Matthew, well we can't say enough nice things about him! We will definitely be permanent customers of this restaurant! They also have a very nice outside seating area, were they ripen their tomatoes and grow their herbs!

“Best Pizza and Salads”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

I hesitate to write this review because as a local, I would like to be able to continue to get a table. But this is definitely one of the best restaurants in town. The pizza is different than I've had anywhere else so if you're coming here for the first time, you need to have an open mind. Order one of the specialty pizzas off the menu instead of just getting what you would get at a normal pizza place. And definitely get a salad. The fresh mozzarella alone is worth it. The prices are fair for the quality of product. The service is great. I eat here every time my family comes into town and can't wait to go back next time.

“Excellent food, high prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

We have eaten here a couple of times and find the food very good. Salads are wonderful with fresh makings. But it's very pricey.
