Thanks to you chowhounder regulars here on the Italy board I have eaten my way very well through Venice, ER, Florence and Umbria. There has been a marked difference between your suggestions and random places I went to or even those recommended by hotel conceriege, etc. The Gambero, Michelin, Ristorante d'Italia etc. stickers on the restaurant windows are also somewhat indicative of the food. I plan to share my favorites when I get back to NYC. 
I am now stuck in Rome, with limited Internet access and time until I leave (typing this up on my phone!). I beleive I have already had some of the best Venetian, Tuscan, Umbrian and Bolognese food and unless the place has some special twist one might appreciate, I'm really trying to get mind-blowing regional Roman food and pizza. Reading through previous Chowhound posts so far I have a short list:
Al Duello 
Forno Campo de' Fiori (tried once already at 5:30pm but was unimpressed, Pizza Bianca was decent though, maybe aim to go in the morning when they serve it hot and not cold and hard like when I went?)
L'Asino d'Oro
La Campana 
La Taverna dei Monti 
Ristorante Santa Cristina al Quirinale 
Trattoria da Danilo 
Ditarambo (tried already, not bad, my first Cacio e pepe - it was good but not amazing)

So in short looking for about half a dozen choices that would really highlight the best of Roman cooking and sit-down pizza (I think I should be good with Pizzarium for taglio pizza). I prefer traditional or traditional with modern twist/ presentation but not looking for overly inventive or experimental cuisine. I am staying in Via Veneto a few minutes from Barebrini metro stop but plan to be all over Rome. I look forward to your suggestions.
