Verona dining plan--input needed!

I'm having a bit of trouble trying to figure out my Verona dining, primarily because we are there Mon, Tue, and Wed, and all three of the places I had picked out are closed Monday!

We'll be staying about 15 minutes east of town at an agriturismo/winery. We have opera tickets for Tuesday. We can arrive early in Verona Monday (coming from Sirmione.) I'm thinking, we'd have a nice lunch in Verona Monday, head to the winery in the afternoon, and NOT return to dine in Verona on Monday (but go somewhere local to our accommodation.) Wednesday, we'll be in Vicenza so would lunch there.

So essentially I need:
Mon Lunch
Tuesday lunch, and dinner pre-opera
Wed dinner

These are the places I'd decided to go:
Taverna de Stella: closed Mon lunch and Wed
Al Pompiere: closed Mon lunch
12 Apostoli: closed Monday lunch

Mon lunch--help!
Mon dinner--near winery
Tuesday: lunch: Al Pompiere; dinner pre-opera Taverna de Stella (will this be too much for one day?)
Wed dinner: 12 Apostoli (I want to go there for the Buon Ricardo plate, among other reasons.)

How does that sound, and any recommendations for a light lunch Monday appreciated. What about Bottega de Vino?

Also, do you think reservations are needed for lunch on a Monday and Tuesday?
