Week in Rome - feedback please

HI all,
Long time reader, first time poster here (maybe second time). I'm planning a third trip to Rome with my sis, and would love some input on my current plan. We're calling this the Tour de Pizza, but we will try other things, too :)

We'll be in Rome during the second week of November, and have rented an apartment in Monti. We prefer places that are not fussy with a convivial spirit.

Fri, arrive late afternoon
Dinner: Pizzeria Le Carrete (seemed a good idea as not far from our apartment, in case we are late or super tired)

Sat
Lunch: L'Asino D'oro (visiting Galleria Doria Pamphiljj afterward)
Dinner: TBD; may do Vinoroma tasting first, or perhaps Rosicoli Wine+Food tasting

Sun
Lunch: Taverna dei Fori Imperiali

Dinner: thought we'd venture to Pigneto for aperitivo at Necci dal 1924 and then Il Porchettoni for some porchetta

Mon
Lunch: Gaudeo for panini (Palazzo Valentini afterward)

Dinner: I'd like to try Porto Fluviale. It looks like a fun place, and I like the idea of sampling a bunch of small plates. (I'd also like to work in a trip to Macro Testaccio beforehand. If so, this would switch to Wed)

Tues
Lunch: Pizzarium before a visit to St Peters and maybe the Trionfale market, not necessarily in that order

Dinner: Trattoria Monti (a friend insisted we try here as it's her favorite, but I'm a bit ambiavalent towards it. May be nice to be moderately close to the apartment after Vatican day, which can be tiring)

Wed
Testaccio Market, lunch stop at Mordi e Vai. We'd like to try the trippa panino ...

We may choose to share and make that a snack (trippa for breakfast? maybe), walk around to see the Protestant Cemetery and poke into Volpetti or just walk around, and maybe have lunch at Flavio al Velavevodetto

Dinner: Trastevere night -- thought we could check out Ma Che Siete Venuti A Fa' and/or Bir and Fud for a beer (wine break), then pizza at Dar Poeta, Ai Marmi or Gatta Mangiano or go back closer to "home" for Il rione? This may flop with Monday

Thursday
Leaving this day a bit loose, so we can shop (our souveniers tend to be food-related and often chocolate; we had more chocolate than clothes in our bags after a trip to Torino) and visit any of the (many) churches on my list that we've not visited prior

Lunch: we may try to do a Roscioli vs Forno pizza-off, if we still want pizza at this point...

Dinner: Armando al Pantheon for gnocchi (we're going to an concert at a church near Piazza Navona prior)

Things I can't seem to fit in that I'd like to: Cesare Caseletto or Osteria Monteverde

A visit/meal in Prati. We got lost here after our last trip, and loved the look and feel. Maybe there's an enoteca/cafe stop we can take a break at following our St Peter's visit?

This was wordy, sorry. Thoughts for improvement?

Thanks!
