Gelato’s not the only dish you can eat from a cone; you can also get fresh, fried seafood served in a paper cone in the streets of many Italian port towns. And this is fresh: the seafood comes right off the fishing boats that arrive at the port each morning, and gets tossed in a basic flour batter and then deep-fried in front of you. Depending on the catch of the day, you can get a cone full of small fish or a mixture of shrimp and squid. Drizzle a bit of lemon on top and eat it with your hands or the “spear” provided as you wander the streets.
