I know there have been posts on this topic before, but now that I need them, I cannot find them. I love Rome, having just returned in March from a great trip with older parents, and now we are traveling to Rome as a family (adults with kids, age 8, who love restaurants and are great eaters) -- then going to the Amalfi coast for hiking, beach, etc., for a few days -- then back to Rome. As it is, we will be in Rome two Sundays in a row in July, and need a selection of choices for decent food. Hate to have your first and last meals in Italy be anything but great! I was thinking the following: first Sunday, arrive in Rome mid-morning, hit Campo F. for Pizza Bianca, walk around and see some sites, let them try gelato (lots of choices on my list for that!) check into the hotel, and go to Paris in Trastavere for a real meal in the evening. Is that open on Sundays? My other ideas would be Fiammetta, or other Trat. place -- anywhere in the city -- we love to walk, and can hop a cab from anywhere too far to walk.
The last Sunday, we are arriving late in the afternoon on the train, checking back into our hotel and want a really special family meal to end our trip before heading back to U.S. on Monday morning ... lots of places I thought of (Monti, La Piazzetta are not open on Sunday, according to my notes, which may not be accurate) and I need a good idea. Price is not the priority. Any ideas?? Pierluigi is sort of out, kids are not huge fish lovers, and we will have just come from the beach, where they will have their fill. I thought of Armando, but wanted something a bit more special. Any ideas??
