Rome itinerary for anniversary trip

MelB5 | Jun 15, 2013 08:51 PM

Hi chowhounders!
Hubby and I will be in Rome in July for 8 days celebrating our 10th anniversary.
We've rented an apartment in the campo de fiori so we'll probably have a little breakfast before heading out each day. I've read the campo de fiori marketplace isn't the best place so is there another marketplace or shops nearby where we can stock up on breakfast items (fruit, cheese, coffee) and snack foods (salumi, cheese, vegetables, wine)?

Here are my restaurant picks so far. If i don't mention lunch, its because I plan to use Katie Parla and Elizabeth Minchilli's apps to help wherever we've ended up at lunch time. Please let me know if I've made any mistakes, left anything important out, etc. I was also hoping for some nice seafood maybe La Gensola or Pierluigi. Should I substitute any of the ones I have for either one of those? I thank you for any and all thoughts!

Day 1 thurs: arrive at 5pm. Was thinking cool ambience might trump amazing food this night with our jet lag so was considering Costanza for dinner.

Day 2 Fri: actual anniversary! Plan to pick up picnic items and take them to borghese gardens (where should we stop for this?)
Anniversary dinner at Pipero Al Rex. Romantic atmosphere is as important as food this night. Good choice?

Day 3 Sat:
Lunch: l'asino d'oro (plan to be at nearby capitoline museum
Dinner: checchino dal 1887

Day 4 Sun:
Dinner: Cesare al Casaletto

Day 5 Mon:
Dinner: Colline Emiliane?

Day 6 Tue:
Vatican day. Grabbing a slice from pizzarium.
Dinner: Renato e Luisa or Armando al Pantheon or Settimio al Pellegrino.

Day 7 wed:
Lunch: Taverna dei Fiore
Dinner: wine and food tasting at Roscioli

Day 8 thurs: dinner at L'Arcangelo
