Went to Taste of Italy Wed night. Salad course was fine, particularly the "Florida" salad. Things wen downhill when the main courses arrives. One person ordered the Antipasto Plate, which was two pieces of Prochutto, and a small bit of dried out cheese. Pathetic. Another asked for a serving of Meatballs, whereupon the waiter said "I don't think we serve main course meatballs.. (Duh, this is an Italian restaurant) Well, in a way he was correct. They brought a plate of thumbnail sized "meatballs" in a putrid looking and tasting sauce. The Shellfish in Sauce over "Half Ravioli" came with a very much under-cooked pasta, covered with a skimpy, lukewarm sauce. And then it turns out that some of the shellfish were tainted very quuickly causing an unpleasant evening of "intestinal distress" Have no idea why the place got good reviews earlier, but do understand why they were recently sold. With so many fine Italian choices in the Venice area, the four of us vowed to never return , and to let our friends know what happened.
