ROME RESTAURANTS AGAIN-I KNOW, BUT NEED HELP - PICKY ITALIAN SPOUSE

enofile | Feb 17, 2012 09:39 AM

We are returning to Rome after a 15 year absence and following extensive research, I still need help with dining options. Our Roman holiday will start on Saturday, March 3rd for 3 days. Returning from Florence on the 9th of March, Friday and Sunday will be in Rome. Thus, our Roman culinary adventure will last five days.

My wife is Italian but speaks little of the language. However, she converses well in "food," and is ludicrously particular when consuming Italian edibles. She is like "Mickey" from those old commercials, "she hates everything." Nothing compares to Grandma who taught her to cook. Exceptions to her displeasure have been Lupa and Scarpetti in New York, many of Milan's restaurants especially Aimo e Nadia, and Don Alphonso in the hills above Sorrento. We are not adverse to expensive gluttony, but enjoy "hole in the wall" restaurants even better.

After perusing Chowhound, Eat Rome, Diane Seed, and David Downie, I have come up with the following list: Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
