I am going to Venice in a few weeks and have nailed down where I am going for dinners, but want to find a good pizza place to try for lunch one day. Mostly it's for my husband who is not the biggest foodie but loves a good pizza! I know Venice is not known for it's pizza, but does anyone know of one or two places that are at least "good" (not expecting to find anything on par with Naples)? The places I have found in my research are Achiugheta and Al Vecio Canton, which both appear to be in the eastern part of Castello. Has anyone been to either of those? We are staying in Cannaregio but might wind up anywhere in the course of our sightseeing. We are also going to Verona so if anyone has any suggestions for pizza there, that would work too!
I must remember you that italian food is not only pizza and spaghetti, fortunately!
Open your mind, please!
At Venice you must try baccalà "alla vicentina" or "mantecato" at Trattoria da Alberto, Calle Gallina, near San Giovanni e Paolo, in Castello.
But you must eat also liver "alla veneziana" at the Nono resorto, Campo San Cassian, Sottoportego de Sora Bettina.
Try, try, try: Italian regional food is better and richer than the anglosaxon stereotype of italian Kitchen.
Dai Tosi, Seco Marina, a bit out of the way in Castello
Nono Resorto, west of Rialto, walk one bridge on Sotoportego di Siora Bettina, Campo San Cassiano.
Alle Oche, Santa Croce 1552, on Calle del Tintor south of Campo San Giacomo dell'Orio, a beautiful campo and area. Also an excellent pastry shop, J. Majer is nearby.
Pizzeria Accademia under the Accademia Bridge has outdoor tables on the Grand Canal, decent pizza but great location.
Casa Mia, off Campo SS Apostoli in Cannaregio (down the Calle Oca)
Antico Capon, Campo Santa Margherita, Dorsoduro 3004/b, 528 5292, pizza is ok but has great people watching outside seating.
Pizzeria Trattoria a Vecio Canton that you mentioned is very good.
Achiugheta is a convenient option near San Marco, serving pizza, cicchetti and full meals
