Three nights in Venice, after many years.

My wife and I are planning a trip in April to Venezia and Firenze. We both have pretty sophisticated palates, having lived in Brooklyn, NYC for many years, where good, reasonable restaurants abound.

We are staying in Dorsoduro and I'd appreciate a rec for a place in that sestiere for our first night (a Sunday) since we will have just arrived. It doesn't have to be really fine dining; I'd prefer something more relaxed since we will be tired from the trip. The next two, nights however, we can go farther afield for something more momentous.

BTW, it's been decades since I have been to Italy. Is lunch still considered the main meal? What time do people go for dinner?
