I am going to Venice in early October to celebrate my 50th birthday and I'd like to find out if the weather is usually nice enough at that time of year to eat dinner outside at 8 pm or so at a restaurant that overlooks the grand canal.
If so, I'd love recommendations of restaurants overlooking the canal that have candlelight or some other kind of light where you can see the canal. It would be a nice if there was also good food and a romantic atmosphere.
I'd also like to know how far in advance you should make reservations.
thanks so much!
