At the strong recommendation of the Roman posters here whose opinions I very much respect, I asked my hotel to book a table for me during the week at Santo Palato; they came back and told me that they were not able to do so since the restaurant "never picked up the phone." shall I make a strong attempt to secure a table and if so,, does anyone have an e-mail for this restaurant?

Unfortunately, Cesare al Casalleto seems also out of the question as they will be closed during the week 24 October until 5 November, that I will be in Rome, according to the hotel concierge.

I have booked Emma, Al Moro, Piperno, Armando al Pantheon (been before). Also Angolo d'Abruzzo in Carsoli, La Bandiera (waiting for response), Uliassi, and Pascucci in Fiumicino.

Any other Roman places that stand out as requiring an advance booking (Da Bruno?) or should I just wing it during the two nights that are now free? Would be great to walk (staying at JK Place) and do not mind another pizza place, in addition to Emma.. Wine list takes back seat to food for both of us... WE have enough very high end places on our list so casual/simple is great.

Again, mille grazie to VinoRoma, and all others who have been so extraordinarily helpful and informative to me in planning this long-awaited visit to Rome, Le Marche and Abruzzo!! Bought the two Minichelli books, and the SlowFood book, too, and have read all I can find from Katie Parla and Maureen Fant. Can I entice any of you to be pur guest for dinner one night?
