Advice for lunch/dinner plans with 2 weeks in Italy

Heeney | Feb 12, 2013 02:09 PM

Wanting some feedback on a possible itinerary for 2 food fanatics with 14 nights in Italy.
Staying in Rome/Florence/Bologna/Venice.

We realize a lot of great places will be outside of the city and need a car (like places in Emilia Romagna). But we aren't going to be spending enough time in each city to merit always getting a car. So looking for great places nearer to cities.

We haven't accounted for what is open when depending on what days we are there. Just wanting to get an idea if we are picking good places or if some should be swapped/replaced.

Here is how I broke it down:

Rome Lunch - Der Pallaro (heard mixed things, but sounds fun)
Rome Dinner - Restaurante Paris
Rome Lunch - Roma Spirita
Rome Dinner - Il Convivio Troiani (or maybe Il Pagliaccio)
Rome Lunch - Sora Lella
Rome Dinner - Felice a Testaccio
Rome Lunch - Pizzarium
Rome Dinner - Nonna Betta e il Giardino Romano
Florence Lunch - Trattoria Cibreo
Florence Dinner - Il Latini
Florence Lunch - Trattoria Mario
Florence Dinner - Il Santo Bevitore
Florence Lunch - ? ( we will rent a car this day to tour one or two Tuscan towns, not sure which)
Florence Dinner - Del Fagoli
Florence Lunch - Nerbone
Florence Dinner - Ora d'Aria
Bologna Lunch - Ristorante Ciacco
Bologna Dinner - al Pappagallo
Bologna Lunch - Osteria Francescana (Modena)
Bologna Dinner - Da Cesari
Bologna Lunch - All'Osteria Bottega (or maybe a daytrip to Parma)
Bologna Dinner - Marco Fadigo Bistrot
Venice Lunch - Alle Testiere
Venice Dinner - Al Covo
Venice Lunch - Bar hop including Cantina Do Mori
Venice Dinner - Anice Stellato
Venice Lunch - Da Romano (Burano)
Venice Dinner - Alla Madonna
