Hey Italian travelling hounds-- I am at an internet cafe in Rome, a third of the way through our honeymoon. We have had some great meals (Enoteca Cavour 313, Fontanone in Trastevere, Il Piccolo Enoteca by the Piazza Navona) and some not so great ones. For Tuesday night, before we head to the Cinqueterre, we are looking for a blowout, byebye Roma meal. No holds barred--we are getting dressed to the nines and going out on the town. I have heard mixed recs for La Pergola, Il Giusto, and Agata e Romeo, but they sound on the par with what we might be looking for. We have done (and will continue to do) the local trattorias, pizzerias, etc, which are great, but we would love one really extravagant kickass meal.
The other thing we could use help with is recs for the Cinqueterre-ish areas (not nec. fancy) and Tuscany (accessible by train from Florence or Siena). Molto grazie a tutti!
