I'm heading off to Venice next month to celebrate my mother's 75th birthday. I want to take her somewhere special for lunch on the actual day – good honest food rather than haute cuisine, and a view would be nice, but not essential.
Normally I'd think of taking her somewhere like Corte Sconta or Alle Testiere, but there are two problems.
1) The birthday falls on a Sunday, when a lot of restaurants (including the two mentioned above) are closed.
2) My nephew (aged 6) is allergic to both seafood and eggs, so that rules out both seafood specialty restaurants and pasta places.
