I will be heading to Rome in mid-May for the first time and am excited to try local specialties and really good regional Italian food. I prefer relatively casual moderately-priced restaurants. I only have 4 days in Rome and usually plan one big sit-down meal per day so I would really appreciate your thoughts on these choices:
Saturday dinner: L'Asino D'Oro or Trattoria Monti
Sunday dinner: Taverna dei Fori Imperiali or Flavio al Velavevodetto or Perilli
Monday dinner: one of the above Sunday choices or Armando al Pantheon
Tuesday dinner: Cesare al Casaletto
Is there too much overlap or will I get a fairly good cross-section of Roman cuisine? Any other suggestions?
For lunch, I will likely be trying out the various bakeries for paninis, pizzas or picking up supplies for picnics.
