On our last day in Venice we wanted to have a last slice of pizza. We came to this place and the pizza was amazing! We both ate pizza with a big crust, which was great.

We are staying in a b&b across from this little trattoria and were starving so we decided to try it! We were pleasantly surprised by how good the cutlet and pizza were! The cutlet had great crispy breading and the veal was very tender. The pizza had a good crust and toppings were fresh. The service was excellent and pricing... More

Very close to where we were staying, we had this delicious pizza every day. Particular highlights were the cheese and spinach, the ham and pineapple deep dish and the chilli/red onion ones. Prices were €3-4 per slice, or €17.50+ for a whole pizza You can buy by the slice or a whole pizza. If you ask, the will make your... More

We just happened to be walking past and stumbled upon this place. We couldn't just walk past. The large fresh pizzas looked amazing! And they were. We only popped in for one slice each but ended up with a large slice each and a large beer. Very reasonably priced. And then they walked out with a fresh from the oven... More

$26 euro for a pasta dish with a handful of seafood served in shells (clams?) water and white wine. Tasted amazing but that's not hard, pasta,butter sauce + a few herbs that's me sold. Wine surprisingly good considering it's the house white. Bread served but No oil or balsamic on the table.

The best pizza ever, and I ate a lot of them! Not very expensive, friendly and a lot of different flavours. Big fan of there work ;-) Two little comments: The floor was kinda dirty, but yeah mid season and that's something to understand. Second, the music was to loud for my taste, but I'm not 16 anymore :-D

Staying in San Polo

Neighborhood Profile
San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest neighborhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi) stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San Polo is defined by churches including Basilica dei Frari, one of the most important churches sought by art lovers.
