Antico Capon


Address: Campo Santa Margarita

With the tragic closure of the best pizza house in town (Al Sole di Napoli), the search is on for its replacement in the Dorsoduro / Santa Croce area. Antico Capon could fit the bill – the list of pizzas is almost endless and there are some very interesting combinations on offer, without any of those that make one wince.

The Pugliese, with artichokes, onion, salame piccante and capers, was delicious. The pizza base is also fabulous – thin, crisp and sweet. There are plenty of other dishes on offer here as well, and a small number of rooms above in case the house wine (San Giovese) gets you.

Inexpensive, no credit cards.
