Restaurant details
Good for: Local cuisine, Families with children

Neighborhood: San Polo
Description: The place offers Free WiFi. 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.

After sampling a number of the pizzerias in Venice. This was the best we found. Right on a main walking route too. Id be back on my next visit.

“Good but not a must”
Reviewed March 2, 2014 via mobile

Pizza is good, good location also close to Rialto. Good if you want something fast to go. If you are looking something more typical, try it in other place

“Not the best in Venice”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

It was a nice place but we felt like the staff were too used to people showing up because of "fame" maybe from trip advisor. It wasn't that friendly. Waiter's only words to us was the price. Pizza was nice but not amazing and it was more expensive than other pizza I had in Venice (and that was also better). I though this place was overrated compared to the reviews I read. My tips would be better service and better prices (or better pizza!!).

“Excellent -”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

Myself and my family ate here on a weekend trip to Venice and it was AMAZING. We didn't know this place even existed - we came across it by accident while walking down one of Venice's many ally ways. The thick crust pizza is INSANE!! SO GOOD. We all had a fresh, hot slice and I can't say enough good things about it. Definitely worth trying to find while you are in town.

“A quick stop, and an excellent slice”
Reviewed February 15, 2014

This pizzeria, close by the Rialto Market, and on the way to Campo San Polo, is a great place to grab a quick slice. They serve a variety of thin and thick crust pizzas by the slice. You can enjoy them standing up, inside the small shop or while window shopping in the neighborhood. You can't beat good, fast, and cheap!
