We keep coming back every year at this small place. You have no place to sit so it is a kind of grab your food and drink and keep walking or relax inside in the small balcony for a quick lunch. But it is worth...More

Delicious fried squid! On the pricier side at €5,00 for a small-ish portion but not surprising in Venice where everything is expensive.

We went to this place in the morning and the food was really nice.Went back in the evening and we were served really cold tough stuff and the portions were tiny.Fish cutlets are more bread and potato and less fish!

The concept and location is great, but the cones are very small and I ended up with the cold leftovers of the last batch. This is definitely overrated by tourists. Many other places offer huge cones of seafood for the same price.

No doubt the best "fast food" place around Venice. Their seafood snacks are delicious and would make you come back every time. Easy to find in the main part of San Polo, and a must visit for a quick bite or even light dinner.

I had seen the reviews on TripAdvisor and whilst walking round the Rialto area we saw someone with a 'cone' of seafood and asked them where it was. No queue the day we went but delicious whitebait, prawn and calamari in a cone with polenta...More

This is a really good fast food place in the San Polo area of Venice. Try the mixture of fish, calamari, shrimp, etc served in a paper cone with polenta. Everything stays hot with the polenta in the bottom of the cone. No tables, you...More

San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the
Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six
sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest
neighborhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the
markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops
display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San
Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi)
stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San
