First time going to France/Italy--need some restaurant suggestions

I'm planning on taking a 5 day trip to Paris and Rome (maybe Nice) in August and was wondering if anyone has recommendations for places I must try. I have a flexible budget, although I don't think it's necessary to eat a michelin star dinner every night.

I also had a few questions--Is it safe to assume that most Michelin star restaurants has someone who speaks English? Might not be as enjoyable if I don't know what I'm eating....

How far in advance should I make reservations?

Are there any major dining etiquette rules that I should be aware of (that are not common in the U.S.)?

Thanks!
