Opinions on Rome restaurant choices

KasieB | Aug 21, 201111:36 AM     9

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.
