Venice restaurants with baby

DMJT | Sep 22, 201609:18 AM

I will be in Venice this coming October for two days with my wife and our 10-month old baby and am looking for suggestions for baby-friendly restaurants. I have scoured the previous posts on Venice and so already have an idea of what the best restaurants are but want to make sure these are appropriate for a baby.

We don't need the restaurant to have a high-chair as we have our own little seat that attaches to any table and takes barely any room, or can hold her on our laps while we eat. And the baby will eat anything from my plate or that I order so I don't need any special food or to warm up any baby food.

Having said that, are there restaurants that are less appropriate to bring a baby for dinner? For lunch the day we arrive we will probably just grab some pizza at Antico Forno as it is within 100m of our Airbnb and although probably not the best place, we will be tired and it will be good enough for a quick bite before we go nap/rest before dinner.

Dinner on the day we arrive, made reservations at Anice Stellato. On the phone they seemed to be more than fine with us bringing the baby and had no issues with it, but will there be any problem from your perspective?

Lunch on the second day we will just grab some chicchetti around the Rialto market. I know some of those places are stand up only but the baby is still small so I'm thinking we should be fine, quick bite, glass of wine, but let me know if that would be seen as inappropriate or unusual.

Dinner on the second night is where I'm less sure. I'd like to maybe try Al Covo with my wife but if that's too fancy/cramped for a baby then where else can we try going? We are looking for authentic Venetian, mainly seafood, but we would eat anything that's really good. Again don't need special food for the baby or high chairs, but perhaps Al Covo is too formal and we need something with a bit of a more relaxed/family friendly atmosphere. Anywhere you would reccomend that would fit that if Al Covo is too much?
