Despite reading the numerous posts regarding this restaurant (including a very insightful post by jen kalb), I am still considering allocating one of my two nights in Venice this winter with my wife to dining at this restaurant. Maybe I'm a glutton for punishment but I always find it hard to resist certain restaurants in cities I've never visited that have built up such a buzz in the past that their call still echoes long after it appears the quality/service has departed. Does the Heisenberg (sp?) uncertainty principle apply to restaurants such that the elsuive quality that another has identified may not be in there when you arrive? Maybe chowhounds, by their nature, demand more than most restaurants can offer a therefore are often the most dissapointed diners leaving those with lower expectations to savor the moment. Thus, I turn to my fellow chowhounds for advice with respect to this dilema and any suggestions they may have.
