We are traveling throughout Italy and had an absolute horrible experience at Do Forni in Venice. The restaurant was recommended by our concierge at The Bauer Il Palazzo, which is a 5 star hotel. We have had a few good meals in Venice, with one excellent meal at Testiere. Venice is not my favorite for food in Italy, so I always come with lowered expectations. Do Forni was the worst of our 2 week trip by far. The service at Do Forni was rude. The place is like a food factory. We were seated at a terrible table with several empty tables in the restaurant. The food was horrible and expensive. Raw vegetables with a pepper sauce for 10 Euros, was 2 carrots, 1 piece of celery, 2 pieces of fennel sticking out of a pile of ice, with oil and vinegar. Giant Scampi for 37Euros consisted of 2 spoons of scampi meat. Expensive wine list with no range of lowered and medium priced wines. I can't stress enough how bad our experience was.
