Gratto Nero was absolutely a wonderful experience. The front desk clerk at the Boscolo Dei Dogi recommended we not leave Venice without a trip to Burano to savor the fresh fish and service at Gratto Nero. Well, she knew exactly what she was saying. Started the day in Murano, (skip it unless you like hard sell tactics) wish we had just come straight to Burano to enjoy the community, the sense of colorful history, and most of all this restaurant. We lucked out and got a table in 30 minutes (will make reservations next time) then proceeded to spend the next 3 hrs (late lunch) eating wonderful food, drinking fine wine, and making new friends. Everything was very tasty, the fish was excellent (let the waiter choose for us), de-boned in front of us, but the friendliness and service coupled with the ambiance made it one of the best memories of our trip to Italy. Took public transportation to Burano (crammed and standing up for almost 1 hr), but splurged on private taxi for return to Venice. It cost us $100 Euros but worth every penny to get back quickly and in comfort. I can't wait to go back to Gratto Nero!!
