2 & 1/2 LA Hounds in Boston Aug 15-18

Hi, My husband, 8 year old son and I will be in Boston (Jurys Boston Hotel) early enough for dinner on the 15th and leave the morning of the 18th for Springfield to be with the family. Anyway, we will be packing our days with Duck Tours, Boston Science Museum, USS Constitution & maybe the aquarium not to mention the Public Gardens, Newberry Street (for me) and China Town for pot stickers and scallion pancakes to a place I cannot recall the name of but was nicknamed by my husband's frat bros Brezhnev's because the owner looks like him and whatever else we can cram in. We will be WALKING and taking the T. My husband went to school in Boston (20 years ago) and we go every couple of years. We will of course be going to the North End to eat as well. My requirements: GOOD Italian, seafood, ice cream & cannoli, places that are casual (by Boston's standards), appropriate for kids and not necessarily trendy. Looking for institutions that are not relying on their reputations only. I had a terrible lobster at Legal Seafood years ago. I want at least 1 good lobster roll with all of the stuff that goes with, maybe fried clams etc. and I don't mean from Faenuil Hall, no dis intended. I would like some suggestions for the North End. Do I remember Michaels as being a great bakery for cannoli? Thank you in advance!!!
