Rome- Feedback on restaurants

OaOmOt | May 17, 2013 11:29 AM

Hello foodies,
My wife and I are arriving Rome for a long weekend (Thursday noon- Sunday afternoon) to celebrate our anniversary in a few weeks. We both really care about the food and since it's our first time in Rome and we cannot eat at all the good restaurants, I decided to thoroughly prepare the culinary aspect of this weekend.
So… after reading and reading and reading all the food blogs, all the posts at chowhound, all the reviews and even going through several apps (Katie Parla and Elizabeth Minchilli, your apps are amazing. I'm sure I'm not going to lower my iPhone for a second while in Rome) I managed to make a restaurants list, mainly to dinners since I want to be more flexible during the days:
Thursday dinner- Antico Arco
Friday dinner- Roscioli
Saturday dinner- the big anniversary celebration with tasting menu- Pipero Al Rex / Motomorfosi / All'oro ???
Sunday lunch- Trattoria Monti

I would really like to have your opinion. First about my list- do you think I should change anything?
Second- my big dilemma- the Saturday dinner restaurant- I know all the great experts here like those three restaurants (I read every post concerning those three), I know it is difficult to choose since there isn't a right and wrong answer, but I thought that maybe based on my other restaurants and on who we are, you will be able to make a logical suggestion…
A little more about us- as I said, we really love food. However, we are also relatively young (29 years old) and our experience in gourmet restaurants is pretty weak.
Another important thing is that my wife doesn't like too creative food. At the beginning I also considered Glass but I thought it was too creative for her.

So I really hope you'll be able to help me. Thank you very much!
And one more thing- you are all great! I really enjoy reading all your posts and recommendations!
