First timers to Rome...Most of our meals are looking like La Campana, Emiliana Coline, Antico Arco, Enoteca Corsi etc..(all suggestions by foodie friends and through reading boards, etc...)
We're taking a sort of "lay of the land" tour on Sunday, September 29th. Part one of the tour ends at the Via Sacra and we have about 2 hours or so to eat lunch at a place of our choosing and then meet up with the group at the Piazza del Popolo for part two.
There seem to be some recommendations near the Piazza of Pastificio, Enoteca Antica, Fiaschetteria Beltramme? Also Dal Bolognese (which seems to have very mixed reviews.)
Is L'Asino d'Oro a solid option for lunch? Enoteca Corsi and Nerone were our top choices but both seem to be closed on Sundays...
Ideally we'd love to be able to sit, have a glass of wine, a delicious meal, and relax before part two begins. Something casual and budget friendly would be a perk as well as not being too touristy. We love really good, simple food but also like surprises.
Would love your input!
