My wife, 11-year-old daughter and I are spending 5 nights in Rome and 2 in Venice next month.
My daughter is well-traveled, has already been to Italy, and enjoys dining so we are looking to dine at nice places, but not too expensive or formal.
If anyone can help choose two restaurants in Venice to eat dinner from among this list, I would appreciate it:
Also, does anyone have any up-to-date recommendations for Rome? I have seen nice things on the board about both Trimani and Cul de Sac, but wonder if they are just wine bars, or do they have a nice enough atmosphere and good enough food for my wife and daughter to enjoy?
