We are huge fans of Phil Rosenthal’s Netflix series “Somebody Feed Phil” so we had to make a stop at Acqua e Mais! Simple, very lightly fried, fresh seafood to go. Squid, prawn, sardine and polenta in ours! All the seafood comes in hand held...cones with little wooden skewers perfect for protein on the go. We grabbed a couple cones and strolled the waterfront happy as! Grazie, HoodyMore

I saw it had great reviews, so I checked it out. After a long day of wandering it was the perfect quick snack. And the seafood was fresh too! Note: the drinks looked expensive in comparison to other quick stop places.

Since February is not high season so we can buy the fresh seafood easily . The shrimp and squid are juicy and tasty , highly recommended! After a day's walk we went back to take another one!

The food was good and the lady was nice, but the guy ripped me off with the small bottle of Bellini for €5, which I then walked down the road and spot one for €2 for the same small bottle... enjoy your 1 star review...for taking advantage of a tourist!More

This is a small shop that specializes in selling cones of fried seafood and vegetables. It's fast,quick, and the quality is quite good. Perfect for grabbing a quick bite while you are walking. They also have some other fried food and other pasta dishes, but...their main thing is the fried fish. I would definitely go back the next time I'm in Venice.More

This was on my must-try list of foods in Venice. This is the perfect on the go street foods for when you need a little snack while roaming through Venice. I love calamari but this blew my mind. You walk up to the window and...order what you want. It’s quickly ready for you and you’re on your way. The cone cup is completely filled with calamari and it’s a lot more than you think. The calamari was cooked perfectly and the batter on the outside was so good ! It was like $7 for the cone of calamari. My boyfriend and I were trying all sorts of foods throughout the day so we only ordered one and it was enough for us to share for a small snack. Besides the fact that it was really good, it was also presented so nicely for the perfect picture of the canals.More

Saw all the cones of interesting bites walking by. We shared a cone of shrimp and calamari. Perfectly fried with a very light batter and a rectangle of fried polenta. Fun snack and my husband wishes we had one here at home!

This is a busy, neatly decorated bistro serving good food. I had mixed fried seafood and it was really excellent. My wife had a very nice pizza. The beer on tap was nice too.

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
