Cheap, tasty, no tourist pizza. Place is popular among venetian students, not tourist. Really long lines is a proof of it. The best way to save your money and to eat good is to take pizza away and to enjoy Venice from one of its beautiful bridge with a great piece of pizza. The best is with a seafood (!)

Campo Santa Margherita is the place to go in Dorsodro for a coffee or a light meal. Lots of choices in and around the square but the best pizza, unquestionably, is to be had at this unassuming takeaway.

Simple and very reasonable. This place was such a temptation, even after lunching elsewhere in the city, as they freshly cook huge, delicious pizzas for next to nothing. There's no seating, but that gives you the chance to soak up the square on one of the nearby benches. Gorgeous.

Fresh from the oven: Pizza to go - in slices or hole.A huge slice of Pizza was just € 2 (in July 2016). A refridgerator with softs (can of coke € 1 - also in July 2016). And you can rest on one of the public benches at the Campo and enjoy your meal. Highly recommendable

We walked 40 minutes to the " best pizza in Venice" to find a place with no chairs, no crowd outside , and very unattractive .. We went in and the pizza workers did not show any interest to attend us , so we walked away ..

The pizza is amazing in this place. You can buy it in portions or the whole pizza (medium & family size). The only bad thing about it is that you need to eat it outside in the piazza or take it to yor hotel!

The place itself doesn't represent its reputation as the best pizzeria in the whole Venice. But try and enjoy their pizzas then you'll understand why it becomes a must-to-visit place in Venice. Where else you can find good pizza just for 2 euro?

This pizza was the best pizza we have eaten during our 5 days vacation in Venice. Extremely taste, fresh ingredients, also very good price of beverages. The campo st margarita offers enough benches to take the pizza with you and enjoy it outside!

First 1 star review ever. So we spent 30 minutes to find this place and its a mess, with terrible pizza and awful service. Counter lady didn't speak, just threw 2 cold pieces on wax paper and pointed to cashier. Only after paying did I realize they were cold and upon tasting we realized they were horrible. Threw both in... More

April 2012 - We just stumbled upon this place and we're so glad that it happened! People came in and out of the place and we got curious. When we took a bite of the pizza, it all made sense. It was so good! We sat at the bench across the place and went back for seconds.

Staying in Dorsoduro / Accademia

Neighborhood Profile
Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighborhood with street artists, students, painters, sculptors, restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica buttresses the neighborhood to the east. Gondolas bob in the morning light. The Accademia Bridge crosses the Grand Canal. A back street doubles as basketball court. Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbors exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.
