My parents have lived in Venice for 8 years and we only discovered this gem in the last two years! It is an old style soda fountain. We have only had their pizza here because it is so good we can't venture away from it. Its a NY style pizza, large slices, balanced amount of toppings and cheese. Great flavor. It is our favorite pizza in town. I also get the chocolate cherry coke, which I wasn't really sure about on our first visit, but has now become my usual! So delicious! There are several booths in the soda fountain area and then the next room has about 5 tables, some for larger parties.

This kind of little old fashioned restaurant is fun to go to with your kids. you get to eat things you grew up with and they get to experience a little bit of old fashioned goodness... Their milkshakes and malts are delicious (and HUGE!!)

I've been coming I Venice for over 20 years and never even saw this place before. It's been there 21 years the waitress said. However this place is not to b missed!! Very cute old fashioned soda shop. Pretty small. Diverse menu. The old fashioned sodas are delicious. Vanilla diet coke was great. Pizza is probably the best I've ever had in Florida. The pieces are HUGE. Philly cheesecake sandwich was good. Cheese fries were good. Peppercorn pastrami sandwich wasn't the best-dry...and came with mustard (didn't say on menu). Cuban sandwich was very good. The milkshakes were delicious-cookies and cream. Food took a while to come out. We will definately be back. And definately recommend not missing this place.

This place has it all-Great food, a varied menu, great prices and nice atmosphere. The service is amazing and very friendly. My dad is at an assisted living place around the corner, and we wheeli him there in his wheelchair for lunch. They always go way out of their way to help us, and I notice the same level of attention and care to all of the customers. Huge portion sizes and quality food in a nostalgic atmosphere.

And it will be completely worth it. We come here at least twice every time we're in the area. The entrees are fine- but the endless variety of ice cream desserts is the real reason this is a family favorite. Wonderful old fashioned feeling place, friendly staff.
