Italy: Venice, Florence, Positano, Rome

Hi there -
My boyfriend and I are heading to Italy in about 10 days ... We are going to:
Venice - 2 nights
Florence - 3 nights
Positano - 4 nights
Rome - 1 night

Our travel agent made us dinner reservations, but I wanted to get other recommendations/opinions from all you food gurus! I can (and will) change the reservations should people disagree with her advice. I have been thrilled in the past with chowhound people's advice!

We have booked:
Al Covo
Santa Marina
I saw on some other posts that other restaurants to look into are: Il Ridotto, Il Refolo, and The Met

We are driving from Venice to Florence ... worth stopping in Padua for lunch @ Le Calandre?

Il Salviatino

We are driving from Florence to Positano and planned to stop in Orvieto @ Giglio D'Oro

Donna Rosa
San Pietro
La Sponda

Rome: Pierluigi

We are certainly willing to spend money for some fabulous meals, but would also love to combine it with more local and reasonably priced restaurants. I really do not want to eat at touristy type of restaurants either.

Any opinions, suggestions, thoughts would be so appreciated!
