Feedback on Itinerary: Rome, Genoa, Florence

Hi all,

We will be in Italy for just under 2 weeks (May 29th to June 11th), I've put together a starter list for each city from scrubbing this board:

Salumeria Roscioli
Settimo al Pellegrino (Thursday for gnocchi)
Perilli (read somewhere this is a good spot for Sunday lunch?)
L'Asino d'Oro
Antico Arco

Da Rina

Tre Soldi
Cipolla Rosa
I Due G
Le Volpe e l'Uva
Vini e Vecchi Sapori
La Casalinga
Cavolo Nero

Generally we are planning to book dinners while using the various smartphone apps recommended here to give us lunch recommendations for the areas we happen to be in when we're hungry. Is it reasonable to expect we'll be able to walk into decent app-recommended places at lunch without reservations? Are there any places I should make reservations for sooner than later, or is ~1 week out sufficient?

We're a bit light on Genoa, doesn't seem to be a lot of recs on this board - what we did find we took cues from one thread plus Batali's Expore Italy website. Anything major we are missing here? We may just end up taking recommendations from the hotel concierge if we can't dig up much else. My other concern is that we will be in Genoa for both Sunday and Monday, are restaurants there generally closed those days like they are in Rome?

Please let me know what you think of my list, I still need to edit a bit but am having difficulties deciding between many places as they all sound great on the internet. Thanks in advance!
