We arrive in Rome at 8:30 am next month on a Saturday from the East coast of USA. We usually do okay with jet lag, but I'm sure we won't be up for a late or extended dinner. We will, however, be looking for dinner and not wanting to wander aimlessly! I would prefer not to make reservations because I don't know what time we'll want to eat, probably early!
We (there are 5 of us) are staying near Largo Argentina so we're looking for somewhere easy back and forth. Pantheon/Navona/Campo de' Fiore maybe? Monti? Nothing fancy, jus good simple food, but after a day of traveling I would love more of a meal than pizza al taglio. Is it possible to have a casual sit down dinner that can be fairly quick - without reservations - or can you suggest somewhere that is open all day? I like to have an idea of where we are headed on the first night but I'm at a loss! I'd hate to wander int somewhere out of desperation and have our first meal in Rome be a disappointment!
Sorry if I sound a bit scattered...I have the rest of our days planned fairly well in a general way, but this first day is confounding me for some strange reason!
