I have been reading all of the posts and am overwhelmed by all of the dining options. I have 3 nights and 3 days in Rome. We live in NYC and eat at a lot of fantastic very high end restaurants here. In Rome, we are not interested in formal dining. We just want great food a combination of rustic, delicious food, and fun atmosphere. We don't want super inventive cuisine. In addition to dinners, what might be good for a big Sunday Lunch? Are there any good places to have something light like a pizza and salad and bottle of wine with outside seating at night? I have been given numerous recommendations and am having a lot of trouble making decisions. Also, could someone give me a sense of cost of these places?
