    Default [kinda-OT] Venice strikes again

    A dinner with mixed fried fish, with ad addition of shrimps, in a Pizzeria
    restaurant in the Santa Maria Formosa area, in Venice, costed 600 euros for
    two danish tourists who filed a formal complaint.
    The event became a case of which the Carabinieri have been informed,
    considering that the danish tourists were diplomats who, after getting back
    to Denmark, filed a complaint at the italian Embassy.

    I never feel sorry when a restaurant in Venice gets closed, thay dare too
    much and I wish them to finally get what they deserve: a condemnation to a
    sound fine. The city Townhall should partake in the trial to defend the name
    of Venice from these thieves, asking for a huge financial compensation from
    them as the Townhall of Rome did a few years ago in a similar case.

    I posted this since I remember reading complaints, here on RFC, about crazy
    Venice's restaurants prices.

    Sounds like they are out to scam tourists somehow with prices not
    posted. I'm not sure how the scampi became a reason to raise drink
    prices but . . .


    A dinner with fried 'plus' with prawns in a restaurant-pizzeria in the
    central area of ??Santa Maria Formosa in Venice, cost 600 euro to two
    Danish tourists who have launched a formal protest. The incident
    occurred a month ago but - as reported by The Gazzettino - echoes of
    the story came from Denmark a few days ago.

    The story has become a 'case', which were considered informed the
    police that the pair of Danish tourists are diplomats to return home
    have filed a protest to the Italian Embassy.

    According to their story while eating the fry cook would propose they
    also enjoy some scampi - a gesture seen as a kindness by tourists -
    that would actually become the reason to raise the price of the drinks
    to excess. In the end, thus, the cost of the dinner had grown to 600
    euro.
