This coming week my wife and I will start a 23 day journey in Italy with three days in Rome. Relying significantly upon research on this board, we are reserved for dinners at Perilli on Thursday, Checchino on Friday, and La Pergola on Saturday. We will be arriving at our hotel on Via Piacenza in Quirinale early Thursday morning no doubt heavily jet lagged. I am thinking Colline Emiliane, but am uncertain whether a "light lunch" would be achievable (or acceptable) at this Emilian restaurant. We will be doing "Ancient Rome" on Friday afternoon, and were considering Roscioli beforehand. Finally, we'll be spending Saturday morning in the Vatican Museums, and were thinking of something in Trastavere if possible (but we will be happy to go elsewhere for the right meal).
The key here is delicious but light--as you can see, our dinners are likely to be substantial, and my wife is liable to leave me if I arrange something that is "too much" for lunch.
It has been a pleasure reading this board over the last few weeks; I thank you in advance for any additional advice you all might offer. As seems to be the custom here, I will start separate threads on "light lunches" around Arezzo, Emilia Romagna (Bologna/Ravenna/Ferarra), and Piemonte (Monforte d'Alba and surrounds, and Soriso), the three other areas we'll be spending most of our time.
