For the record, the restaurant at the Gritti does not have a Michelin star. I had by far our worst dinner in Venice at the hotel's restaurant; in fact, it was totally awful in every way. Snooty service as well. A nice setting, though. It's a shame about the food scene in Venice; for the most part it's totally surrendered to the transient tourist trade with rip-off prices. Like a few other places - Dubrovnik for instance - Venice only works for us out of season, like in January.
