Pizza is synonymous with Italy of course, and Venice is
no exception in having an array of pizzerie to
attract pizza aficionados or indeed those who wish to eat
as heartily but as cheaply as possible during their stay.
The standard may vary from place to place but is generally
decent although it’s best to order a pizza in a dedicated
pizza house which specialises in them rather than a non-distinct
restaurant which happens to have pizza on the menu.
There is a good concentration of pizzeria’s in the
Santa Croce are of the city. A staggering 90 types of pizza,
or thereabouts, are available at trendy and informal Ae
Oche where the prices won’t make such
a dent in your wallet, nor will Al Nono Risorto
or Il Refolo where the quality
and prices is also good and the decor and view pleasant
Don’t forget, beer is the usual and typical accompaniment
for pizza in Venice and not wine.
Did you Know?!?
It is widely regarded that Naples is the true home of
pizza, and not the US as many believe. Neapolitan pizzaioli
(pizza chef) is thought to be the founder of the modern
day pizza in the late nineteenth century.
