Pizzeria alla Strega information
Dozens of creative pizza toppings are the real secret at Alla Strega (‘the Way of the Witch’), including the Calabrian pepper-laced Inferno pizza. A collection of witch dolls keep a beady eye on proceedings in the pizzeria’s otherwise bright, airy rooms. To escape their gaze, head out back to the winning terrace. A new €11 lunch menu includes a pasta or risotto, plus a serving of grilled meat or fish and vegies – a real bargain for Venice.
