Proposed Rome food itinerary (is there any other kind ;) ?

L nrs | Jul 7, 2008 02:51 PM

I'll be visiting rome with my husband and toddler later this month. I've found an overwhelming amount of great suggestions for places to eat on this board and elsewhere. Now I'm just plain old confused! Because I'm a glutton for punishment, any suggestions or tweaks (if any) would be appreciated. We'll be staying just east of the Spanish Steps.

We arrive Saturday night. Depending on how trashed we all feel and the state of my 19 month old after a veeerrry long plane ride we might try and find a place that can take us for dinner or maybe just take a walk down to San Crispino for a gelato.

Sunday: wander to Pantheon & Surrounding area-not sure of places open for lunch in the area on sundays.
dinner: La Fiametta

Monday: have 2:15 reservations to be at Vatican and the only place I have found recommended nearby for lunch is Il Matriciano. This good or any other suggestions? We'll also try the gelato at Old Bridge.
dinner: takeout probably-I hope. I've read about GiNa, but otherwise how are Roman restaurants generally regarding ordering food for take out?

Tuesday: get to Volpetti when they open and get provisions for a picnic lunch around the Roman Fora and Coleseum. Dinner: Matricianella.

Wednesday: lunch Colline Emillane
dinner: Bir & Fud

Thursday: morning market in the Campo de' Fiori and then we're off to Castellina in Chianti!

Also, I realize that most places do not have high chairs, so that means I make reservations for three? (I realized this might be a silly question, but when the three of us eat out at home we usually sit at a two top and pull the high chair up to the table.)

Thanks again.
