ROME: Seeking advice on our restaurant selections...

Il Duomo | Aug 2, 2010 09:45 PM

Ciao, tutti.

Please excuse me for cluttering this forum with another post asking for recommendations in Rome, but I value your feedback and I’d like to ensure as much as possible that my fiancée and I make the most of our meals in the city while on our honeymoon. The restaurants that we’re considering have been cherry-picked from recent posts in the Italy forum or have been recommended to us by second-hand sources. Here’s our list:

For lunch:
Sor'Eva, Il Matriciano, and Da Lucia.

For dinner:
Osteria la Gensola, Al Ceppo, Checchino dal 1887, and La Taverna dei Fori Imperiali.

As a point of reference, we ate at Matricianella twice in 2008 and thoroughly enjoyed it. As far as dinner goes, we’d like to dine at a restaurant that can offer a similar experience. Are Chechino and Al Ceppo straying from that requirement—are they encroaching on “fancy”? Da Lucia and La Taverna were both recommended to us, but look iffy. Please critique and criticize. Are we overlooking a better restaurant? Should one of our dinner choices actually be a lunch choice? We will have three dinners and two lunches while in Rome.

Grazie mille!
