Thanks to this board, I have my VCE eats ready:

However, I left FLR open thinking that as long as I stay away from touristy spots, we'll be fine. But as I get closer to our trip, I'm rethinking that and am now looking for midrange & pizza spots for our three dinners (lunches will be sandwiches & cheese shops). For good, local fare, would Sostanza, Cibreo & Trattoria and Baldini work? For pizza, should we go to Pizzaiola or Funiculi? Is the Teatro de Sale gimmicky?
Also, for gelato, is Badiani the one to go to? Sounds like while Grom is organic, it's too corporate....
Any other thoughts or recommendations? Thank you! =)
