Pick a different place for a quick pizza stop. The pizza crust was like cardboard and the sauce had no flavor at all. I was disappointed and clearly had too high of expectations for this place.

The Soda Fountain is a great nostalgic experience in Venice, Florida..We go there for the Stromboli! It is the closest thing we have found to the Southern Indiana style we love. The small one is enough for two to split. Tasty!

Like stepping back in time. An authentic old fashioned soda fountain serving a wide variety of sundaes, ice cream sodas and malts. Also serving New York style thin crust hand-tossed pizza as well as delicious sandwiches and salads. There's something for everyone at The Soda Fountain.
