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 and relaxing.

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.
