Da Felice vs Perilli, L'asino d'oro... so many questions after reading the board!

Dear all,

I am going to Rome in a few days (I live in Paris and I always go to Rome for my birthday, a great tradition of mine :-) and I wanted some advice from you guys. I’ve seen that the board is crazy about L'asino d'oro and Colline Emiliane so I was planning in going to both. Do you think it is better to go for lunch or diner? (I fear going for lunch and ending so full I would need a siesta :-)

Last year I was disappointed by La Campana (which I found in the board). Trattoria Monti and Da Felice have always been in my list, year after year (this will be my third). Reading the board I am thinking that maybe time has come to be unfaithful to Da Felice and try another Testaccio option, Perilli. What do you think?

Also, in general I like to have a large meal per day (either lunch or dinner) plus a lighter one (pizza, tapas, etc.). Do you have any recommendations on the “lighter” meals? I was thinking on Pizzarium (even though it is a bit far from my planned route this year) or maybe Roscioli (also a favourite in the forum I believe). Two years ago I went to ‘Gusto and I enjoyed the “tapas” degustation.

This is my plan so far:

Friday Night: Trattoria Monti
Saturday lunch: L'asino d'oro
Saturday dinner: Pizzarium? any other pizzeria closer to Monti
Sunday lunch: Colline Emiliane
Sunday dinner: ???
Monday lunch: Da Felice? Perilli?

Thanks so much for your help!!!!
