Food is fabulous here. All cooked fresh to order. We had the prawn and squid which were absolutely delicious and fresh. Well worth a trip.

Walking around the area we found this place, we were hungry and we tried fried cones and also a couple of tiny sepia. Fried cone included a shrimp (yes, only one) and battered squid, just OK. Sepia was not 100% clean I would not recommend it, sorry. Just one more thing! Service was careless.

The biggest disadvantage of this place are queues during the most popular opening hours. The mixed fruit Di mare are a must have in Venice however. Extremely tasty and fried up to highest standards

This was a surprise find. What a place. I am very critical with my review of food places but I couldn't give anything less than 5*. Fresh tasty cones of seafood. Yum yum yum. So walk by and help yourself to this delight. I would do it again tomorrow before we leave Venice.

The food here was absolutely delicious!! We had the €5 fried seafood. We was so impressed. We watched them prepare it all through the window and got stuck in straight away. I only wish i had eaten more!

Outstanding street food unique to a unique city. Deep fried squid and shrimp for € 5 euros will be hard to beat anywhere. Especially tasting as good as it does

Fresh seafood cone is a must try. So fresh, not too oily, just perfect. They make it right infront of you. Just a pinch of salt and ready to go. Great customer service, overall very satisfied!

Staying in San Polo

Neighborhood Profile
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 Polo is defined by churches including Basilica dei Frari, one of the most important churches sought by art lovers.
