Went to dinner tonight on the sort of recommendation of Anthony Bourdain (;)) To start, it's pretty hard to find and we tried to make it in time for lunch, but unfortunately arrived 15 minutes BEFORE closing and were denied with an offhanded swoop from a 'younger' bald headed waiter. We were still keen to give it a try or dinner as we both wanted to experience a typical Venetian meal. The place was packed when we arrived (good sign) and we were found a table still (great sign). Unfortunately that's where the hospitality ended. Our waiter was an absolute D-bag (same guy from lunch we'd ran into). The food was fine, probably the best we'd had in Venice, however that's not really saying much. When we got our bill we realized that we'd been charged the typical 'tourist' tax that you hear about so much here. For example, our first course was sauteed shrimp and tomatoes. I would say maximum about 15 VERY small scampi in shell - that was 50 USD. Our plate of pasta to finish was of tomatoes and about an ounce of crab meat - that cost us 60 USD. I can say it was the second worst plate of pasta we had in our trip here so far.
At the end of the day, my suggestion would be to skip this place entirely unless you're keen to be overcharged for dry pasta and under appreciated for your patronage. @anthonybourdain, you really shouldn't tie your name to places like this.
