We will be taking a 2 week honeymoon to Italy this June, with some super good-fortune from the airline miles gods (though only 3 nights will be in Rome, with only 2 full good eating days). As we are paying for a hefty part of the wedding on our own (and shopping for a house!) - we are needing to be pretty careful with our budget. Most of our meals will be well-reputed but decidedly lower cost (lunches at Pizzarium, Enoteca Corsi, Forno on Campo di' Fiori where we enjoy paninis by the fountain , ect).
I've combed the boards for a few hours, but am honestly a bit overwhelmed with wedding planning - so I'm putting my trust in the experts! If you could choose ONE meal in Rome (for traditional Italian fare) that met these 2 expectations.. where would it be?
1. Outside on a piazza at night (I have my heart set on this)
2. Under $75-$100 for 2 people
Additional helpful details... our hotel is situated across the street from the Opera House, though we are open to all locations for meals. My fiance and I have both been to Rome before (though this will be a very new experience for us both - as I traveled to Italy for 3 weeks alone, and he went with his friends for world cup and was admittedly drunk the entire time). I know the budget probably makes this a bit of a challenge, but I appreciate all of your input. Thank you in advance!
