I just bought a 10 lb. box of calamari for my Christmas Eve feast of 7 fishes. I said I wanted to buy the bodies separate from the tentacles--because I don't want a lot of tentacles. The guy kept saying, ""They're in there."" ""They're in there."" Foolishly, I thought the balance would be no more than one for one. Big JOKE! There were 60 bodies of all different sizes--I had asked for small ones--and a quart size bag stuffed with tentacles--well over 60--and the entrails still attached. Anastasi's version of cleaned, small, calamari! I'll buy from the Chinese guy in the future. Anastasi charged $5 lb. for cleaned calamari, and I threw away 2 lbs. of entrails.
