It's a take away place. We tried "fritto misto" plate. It was good and tasty even though it was reheated. It may take you a few hours until you are hungry again.

Wanted street food in Venice and this place came up, was not expecting much but when I saw that the locals were eating there, I knew I was at the right place. Tried different bite size dishes and they were all delightful, I highly recommend...and will most definitely go backMore

I wanted to experience Venetian seafood misto... but not as a meal. Found this place, just behind the Rialto fish market. We ordered 2 cups, and they were delicious. No tables, so we ate at an outside counter. It was fun watching the birds sneak...up on the seafood merchants. Seafood cup consisted of smelt, squid, and shrimp, carrot, and a layer of plain polenta at the bottom. Everything was delicate and perfectly fried. My kid was a bit freaked out by the whole smelt. I ate it for them. Lol.More

Walked past this and nearly didn't notice it! Inside is a wide choice of fish dishes (it is next to the fish market after all!) , which you eat standing up. If you don't want to eat pizza by the slice, which isn't Venetian, then...this is a good alternative if you only want something small. We had the mixed fried fish, along with a bunch of locals and Italian tourists.More

The fried fish (a delicious mix) was amazing and even the small option was pretty big! Incredible for the price and it was lovely to have a bit of polenta with it too.

One of our favourite spots in Venice. There is nowhere else to get your Frito Misto! We have been twice to Venice and headed here straight away after discovering it on a food tour previously. Ariana (filling in for Luca) was so lovely and helpful,...we felt like we made a friend! We cannot wait to see you again next year!More

What a great place located exactly across the fish market. I tried the mixed fried fish with Polenta. It is served in a cardboard cup where the polenta is on the bottom and the fried fish is on top. It looks great and tastes very...good as well. The staff was VERY friendly and took all the time to help us choose. Prices are very good compared to the other snack bars. There is no place to sit.More

The best place for lunch directly at the famous Fish market of Rialto! I enjoyed most the classic Sarde in Saor and the Moscardini umido, stewed curled octopus with polenta

This is truly the perfect place for healthy street food. I strongly recommend the sardines in saor, the scallops au gratin and the salad of octopus celery and potatoes. I’ll be back for more tomorrow

Tried the fried fish and seafood mix and wasn’t disappointed. It was fresh and big enough for a small portion. I would come back for sure.

It is just off Rialto Bridge by the Fish Market, so we would assume the fish would be fresh. The salad was very nice. Fritto Misto could have had a wider variety. For a prime location, fresh produce, it is very good reasonable price, as...cheap as you would expect Venice to be.More

I discovered WEnice by accident, and decided it was time for a break from my steady diet of pizza, pasta and gelato. The scallop au gratin was disappointing, a very small serve which seemed overcooked as well as overpriced, but the stuffed squid made a...very tasty snack.More

The people are friendly and the food was so good I went back 3 times in a row and did the same the fallowing day as well. Keto friendly too! I enjoyed the food at WENice more than any other restaurant in Venice and that...includes the $40 dishes from the scammy high-end places. You’ll know what I’m talking about when you visit Venice, most restaurants have guy standing outside to real you in as if you were the catch of the day.More

The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the

markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops
display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San
