The vegan falafel option was enjoyable (apart from the copious, unspecified gooey foam filling the bottom of the cone) and there is plenty of choice here generally, for meat eaters and veggies alike. It's by no means gourmet standard but a unique and interesting snack...More

Our experience in Acqua e mais was terrible. The food cwas cold and we expected friend polenta but instead we had cooked polenta on the bottom of the cone. I would NOT go there again.

We would have never thought to stop here but our walking tour guide has this as one of her "favorites" and the food is definitely unique. Seafood seems to be their specialty, but we tried the beef options, which tasted sort of like a beef...More

We tried Acqua e Mais on our first trip to Venice around five years ago. And, it was outstanding. They serve a large selection of cicchetti style snack food that are good for a light meal or to take away. So, we returned on a...More

Cute little takeaway spot with fresh and flavorful food! Beer and wine also available. They have a small counter to eat standing. Had the Calamari and it was divine! The chef was very friendly and helped us pick all our yummy bites.

The shrimp & calamari cone was delicious. They will not make any special orders or adjustments to an order. I asked and they said no. The fish cone was disgusting. I had to throw it out. The only reason why I'm rating this place 3...More

We just had our early dinner, when we walked by Aqua e Mais, but since the displays r so eye-catching, hard to resist not to try them. We had three cones, and they all r so.... good. Highly recommended.

This little store caught our eye when we were walking in the area not too far from the Rialto Bridge (San Polo) - they serve small paper cones of fried seafood, which is cooked on demand. We had a mix of shrimp and squid, which...More

An excellent pit-stop during the day with a range of seafood and vegetarian cones starting around €5. Some tempura-style skewered seafood (prawns & squid) others skewered sardines and polenta. They also have wine & soft drinks and a small area inside where you can stand...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
