We will be in Rome on Sat, Sun, and Mon nights. The first night (Sat.) will be out first night in Rome (from US) and I hesitate to plan anything that will be long or expensive because I'm sure we will be jet lagged!
We are staying near Largo Argentina and really want to make it over to Trastavere for dinner either Sunday or Monday night, and I'm having trouble finding somewhere for the 5 of us that is more than pizza al taglio or enoteca...that is not $$$$! we're ok with midrange, but not too pricey. I see La Gensola seems to be open but looks pricey and 2 of our party don't eat seafood....
To complicate things a tiny but, my son will be in a walking boot so we would probably take a taxi...I'd like to know a place to direct the driver rather than go and wander...and assuming also it's better to reserve. Are my hopes lost for Trastavere dinner? I've purchased Eat Rome and Rome for Foodies and still can't quite figure it out!
A quick unrelated question...if places (I'm thinking for example of Trattoria Monti) are open from 12:30-3:00 for lunch, is it too late to try to start lunch at 2:00? Dothey accept reservations that late?
