Rosticceria San Bartolomeo
There's not much that isn't served at this big, efficient, and bustling fast-food emporio in the Rialto Bridge area. Much of it is displayed in glass cases to pique the fussy appetite, and you won't raise any eyebrows if you eat too little, too much, or at hours when the natives have either finished or haven't yet started.
Pizzeria ae Oche
If they're hankering for home and you (rightly) refuse to set foot in a McDonald's, this place not only serves great pizza and pumps rock music through the speakers, it even looks vaguely American -- or at least trattoria-meets-Cracker Barrel.
Ai Tre Spiedi
There's nothing in particular that flags this as kid-friendly, but its genial atmosphere, friendly service, and good cookin' make it ideal and welcoming for families.
Pizzeria/Trattoria al Vecio Canton
This spot offers plenty of seating, a good location near San Marco, low prices, and an extensive menu of both pastas and some of the best pizzas in Venice.
Taverna San Trovaso
Here you'll find a bustling atmosphere, good-natured waiters, and a lengthy menu that covers all sorts of dishes and pizzas to please finicky youngsters and more adventurous palates alike. Good value-priced menus, too.
This place offers good pizza and pasta, seating outdoors, and low prices. What more can you ask for?
