We had tried Antico Forno a few years ago, and when we went back to Venice, had to go again! We found it in an instance (the rain didn't stop us) and found it to be just as nice as before. We tried the margherita, caprese, four cheeses and prosciutto-funghi. All of them just had been baked and were still... More

This little pizza place is perfect for lunch. It came recommended so we thought we would take a walk though the streets of Venice to find it. So glad we did. It was perfect and hit the spot. They have lots of options on the counter ready to go including about 5 vegetarian options. I can't eat cheese so asked... More

Stopped here while walking by as we saw people lined up to order food. The line went quick and we were treated to a fantastic slice of pizza and sandwich. Great crust, and flavourful toppings. Best pie I ate while visiting Venice. Definitely recommend it.

Simple, fast and delicious. Me and my wife, we wanted to experience authentic Italian pizza, she is not big on pizza, but after having a bite here , she wanted more, high quality food in very affordable range. The place is easy to find, close to Rialto Bridge.

Good choice of food from fish, pasta dishes e.g panzerotti with scallops and lobster, fish lasagne and meat dishes. They had the popular starter of sardines marinated with onions, served cold. Service good, prices reasonable, good atmosphere. We had reserved a table and until later in the evening they turned away people at 9.30pm.

The pizza was good but it wasn't hot, so they putted on "microwave". Is a good pizza but it is not "fresh"

My favorite pizza in the world. They were closed for the season the last time I was there. I hope they are open on my next trip. I am sp picky about food, but here everything is fabulous. If you do not like the pizza here, call 911 because you are already dead.

Air-conditioning is always on: fresh air to fight the hot Venetian summer days and a nice heat in winter.
All the mixtures rise naturally, in a time lapse from 72 (3 days) to 96 (4 days) hours. Thanks to that, all pizzas and flat breads are light and crunchy.

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.
