one more Rome list (tis the season?)

Splendid Spatula | Apr 1, 2011 10:14 AM

Hello hounds,
I know there is a lot of this now – but may I ask for a critique of my Rome list, please? Family of four, incl. kids of almost 6 and 10 (good travelers, good restaurant goers). Flat on Via dei Guibbonari, right near Campo di Fiori. MUCH EXCITEMENT. In country the week before Easter, yes, we know it will be a scene, and we’ll deal with it (having to work with the school vacation schedule).

Looking for more traditional and comfortable than upscale or happening. Lots of searching on this board, the blogs of Maureen, Katie, and Elizabeth (wonderful, thank you all), and lists and lists from friends, suggest the following. Dinners could include, in no particular order except that one will have to be on Sunday:

Nonna Betta
Il Fico (the resto, not the bar)
La Campagna
Hosteria di Nerone
Taverna dei Fori Imperiali
Had Sora Lella on here, based on Saveur, but sounds like there is a downhill alert here? Same with Piperno.

Would you say that reservations are essential at all of these? We are diners on the earlier side. I’m assuming kids won’t be frowned upon in these places, but please correct me if I’m wrong there. Finally, having a bit of a hard time judging distance – I think these are all well within walking distance from us, but if I’m way off, please let me know

We’ve got about a billion pizza and gelato suggestions, but always welcome additions (particularly the latter, as my son intends to keep a spreadsheet detailing his results . . .).

Many thanks to you.
