Guidance requested re Dinner Hour in Venice

RCF | Aug 27, 2013 08:47 PM

I was planning on making some restaurant reservations ahead of time for our trip to Venice. Can anyone give me some guidance for the usual dinner hour? I understand that people tend to eat a little earlier in Venice than in Rome or Florence. I usually like to reserve for 9:00 pm, and I notice that there are some places that have seatings for 7:00 and 9:00. For those places that don't have seatings, I assume 9:00 is okay for Friday and Saturday nights, but what about Sunday, Monday, or Tuesday nights? Is 9:00 too late? If we arrive at that hour, will others tend to be in the middle of or finishing up their meals? If so, I would rather eat a little earlier. Thanks for your help.
