Italy is famous for the pizza, but I have to admit that in Venice so far I haven’t found a place where to eat a memorable pizza.
When I asked some Venetian friends where I should go to eat a good pizza in Venice I was answered 3 places: Anfora, Nono Risorto and Birraria La Corte.
I tried all the restaurants and the verdict is that I still have to look for the right place to have a pizza in Venice.
When I used to live in the mainland, I knew different places where to eat delicious pizzas and also fancy pizza restaurants with a cool atmosphere and particular pizza flavours. That’s what I expected to find also in the cosmopolitan Venice!
But this was not the case. The 3 restaurants do not offer anything I would remember them for. The pizzas are quite good but not delicious and so are the locations!
The best out of the three is Anfora, where the thin pizza is tasty and crunchy, but the location is really poor and for sure it is not the place where you should bring your girl for your first date!
In all these restaurants you can eat in the outside and at Birraria La Corte you can also enjoy the view of the magnificent Campo San Polo (Saint Paul’s square), the biggest square in Venice after Saint Mark’s.
Until I will find the right place to go for a pizza, you can taste a very good take-away slice at Antico Forno, not far away from Rialto bridge. Nice the place, good the pizza: a good combination … it’s a pity you cannot sit there and enjoy it with your friends!
