Opinions on Rome restaurant choices

KasieB | Aug 21, 2011 11:36 AM

Hi everyone,
I will be in Rome this October with my husband for a very short period of time (Saturday afternoon - Monday morning) and would like some input on the restaurants I'm considering visiting while we are there. We will be staying in the Trastevere area, and I welcome any suggestions for other restaurants in Trastevere. Here's what I'm thinking so far (with a few questions sprinkled in):

Saturday night: dinner at La Gensola

Questions: How expensive is La Gensola? Do I need a reservation? If so, what's a good time to go?

Sunday lunch: either Roma Sparita or L'Asino D'Oro
Questions: Which do you recommend and why? Is there a huge price difference? How out of the way is L'Asino D'Oro, and would it fit in with a day of sightseeing?

Sunday dinner: La Campana
Questions: Is this a super touristy choice? Are reservations a must?

Here are some other places I've considered:
Settimo al Pelligrino
Le Mani in Pasta

Thoughts? Any and all advice is greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance.

La Campana
Vicolo della Campana, 18, Roma, IT 00186, IT

Le Mani in Pasta
Via dei Genovesi, 37, Rome, Lazio 00153, IT

La Gensola
Piazza della Gensola, 15, Rome, Lazio 00153, IT
