The Soda Fountain is one of our go-to restaurants on Venice Ave. I have never tried anything else on their menu except for the pizza, but I've never wanted to! The pizza is close to the best I've had in Venice. It's a thin crust pizza which is my favorite! The atmosphere makes it even better. You really feel like... More

Soda Fountain location and history makes an appealing pull to get you in, then you feel like you take a step back in the past when you step inside with the old style décor and memorabilia. Unfortunately it does not take long for the old world charm to fade with the hit and miss service from the time you step... More

Although this place does not look like much from the outside it has a quaint old time feel inside. The 4 of us all had different meals everyone like what they had. I ordered a ruben sandwich which was excellent, very lean, comparable to those in NY. Service was good and our waitress was attentive

My husband and I took our two year old here for dinner. My husband and son got the pizza which was decent and I got a grilled cheese which was average. We also got a couple of shakes which were also fine, but again, nothing out of the ordinary. We really didn't feel like this place was anything special. The... More

The pizza is phenomenal! Thin crust and cooked perfectly. Love that feta is a topping option! The club sandwich was so good and it was cut in quarters, which I love. Steak and cheese was also good! We had the same waitress both nights. Appreciate the good service! Will be back for sure!

They even use a real old cash register. We had a hot fudge sundae. Nice folks, good ice cream. They had a guy playing Gordon Lightfoot tunes. The old signs on the walls were nice.

What a pleasant surprise. For us it was like going back to the early to mid-60's, the food & soda fountain drinks offered brought back many memories. We had the pastrami on rye & the chicken salad sandwich with two draft Stellas. Our server Dena was attentive to our needs & answered all of our questions. Even though it was... More

Walked by this place so many times and didn't even know what a gem was hiding. Pizza is the best. Fresh taste and nice, thin, chewy crust.

While strolling the street in Venice, I spotted a lady feeding her young kid this huge, very thin cheese pizza so I couldn't resist asking where she got it... the Soda Fountain... glad I asked, I'd never have guessed. My wife and I stopped in for a slice each - made for a great light lunch in itself. The slices... More
