Tourists in Venice shocked by 'disgraceful' restaurant bill

Four Japanese tourists say they were outraged after paying out more than $1,300 for four steaks, a plate of fried fish, and some water. The mayor of Venice has said the episode is a disgrace and has promised justice. Lawyer Marco Gasparinetti is part of a group of Venetians concerned about how tourism has changed their city.
