Looking for a place near the Saddledome for a moderately priced dinner (casual) with a 3 year old (easy to please) and needs to be wheelchair accessible. No Asian foods. Thanks!

    I'm a few weeks too late but for future reference, Il Gallo Nero would fit the bill. It is on 17th Ave right by the Saddledome, has great food, parking and is family friendly.

      Loungeburger? Corner of Macleod and 14th Ave? You'd have to call to see if they're accessible, but it's pretty casual (one side is a restaurant, the other more of a lounge). I don't think they'd have a kids menu though.

        thanks everyone, 2 or 3 steps is okay, we can handle that

        one thing that is helpful is parking though, the wheelchair van takes up a lot of room and can only exit on the passenger side. I realize this may rule out 17th ave, unless something has parking in back. I don't want to have to push the wheelchair for blocks just to get parking.

          Buon Giorno has parking in the back, but I am not sure how fast it fills up. I am guessing there are about 15 spots?

        Not much around there with that criteria - most places are closed on Sunday for dinner around there - I work around there so I am quite annoyed with that fact when I have to work overtime. Earl's on 4th Street is the closest I can think of.that would be open and be OK for kids and wheelchairs.

        Radjoot for Indian is open and meets your criteria, unless you consider that Asian as well. Inglewood might have a couple places but I can't think of any open on Sunday.

          We can take the 3 year old almost anywhere, she is not the picky one, its the MIL that is not keen on Ethnic (Asian) foods, except Chinese. It doesn't have to be that close. Maybe an Italian place? Or something on 17th?

            Without Papers (pizza in Inglewood) is open Sunday

              I thought of that too, but it is definitely not wheelchair accessible unless they've put in an elevator.

              Jacqueline Suzanne's in Inglewood is good and should be open, but you'll have to call to see if it is wheelchair accessible - I can't remember, but I think not.

              Boccocino's Trattoria is close to the Saddledome but I don't know if it is open Sundays, and I haven't been there.

              Buon Giorno will probably fit the bill, and I think it is open Sundays. It's just west on 17th Ave by 8th Street.

                Right, I forgot about the wheelchair part.
                Aida's is open Sunday, and is on the ground floor.

                  Buon Giorno has two steps to get in, so it may not be wheelchair accessible [and would not be at all if the person uses a power chair].

                    Boccocino's Trattoria closed several years ago. In its place is an upper-scale Italian restaurant called La Vita e Bella. You have to navigate several narrow stairs to get into the restaurant so it is definitely not wheelchair-friendly.

              "no asian foods" LOL

              there's a Humpty's near there, probably the only place i'd recommend taking a 3-year old.
