Good food, fairly priced, and a friendly atmosphere.

Not much to add to the positive reviews this restuarant has already received. Good pizza and service. We were surrounded by Italian regulars, several with three generations represented at the table. The calzones and pasta dishes looked great, too. We will go back.

Outstanding food, popular with the locals

Mid range priced restaurant, walking distance from the train station. Nice large restaurant with lots of outdoor seating in a beautiful quiet square.

Food was phenomenal, we returned twice! The first night I wanted to try something totally different so ordered the Venetian liver as I hadn't had liver for years....it was the best liver I have ever had! The bread that they serve with the meals is an amazing treat made fresh throughout the day, they use the pizza dough and cook it up in an interesting loaf that they slice and serve....it is soooooo good!

At lunch the kids had some great pizzas and my husband and I had the BEST cantaloupe and prosciutto we have ever experienced. Really great! The waiter made a special pizza bread for me, I don't even think it was on the menu, very basic with just some olives on it, olive oil, maybe some sea salt and pepper, can't quite remember but I ate with the tuna carpaccio....I can not stop dreaming about the amazing food I had there!

Venice is so hit and miss with restaurants. I heard from a local many years ago while visiting Venice that alot of restaurants don't care if you like their food or not as they don't need you to return...there's always many other tourists looking for a place to eat in the busy city of Venice!

Pizzeria in the Jewish Ghetto area. Nice outdoor seating area provided a relaxing place to rest your feet while enjoying a decent pizza.

We stumbled upon this pizzeria after walking for hours and needing a place to sit, eat, and rest our feet.

The place wasn't very busy, and all of the customers there were Italian.

The selection of pizza was very large. We had the Buffalo Pizza (10 euro), Spicy Sausage Pizza (8 euro) and two glasses of white wine (3 euro each) for a total of 22.50 euro.

The pizza was good, not the best I've ever had (I like a crisper crust), but the ingedients were fresh, service was friendly and you could sit a long time and not feel rushed. They even had pizza with horsemeat on the menu!
