Second Stop Rome

Hi Rome Chowhounders,
My husband and I will be arriving in Rome by train from Venice on Monday, 1/30, and will stay until Sat. morning, when we take the train to Milan. As I wrote already in my Venice post, we are coming from S. Florida and are looking for a leisurely pace, centered around great food. We are looking for fresh, local flavors and cuisine, and though we are not on a tight budget, we generally are not looking for any break the bank options. We are staying at the Majestic Hotel.

If I had to name the theme of our trip to Rome in one word, it would be PASTA. If I had to use two words, they would be "pasta, pizza." We are constant dieters at home and live to eat with abandon on our trips. There is nothing we love as much as pasta and pizza, so it's been extremely difficult for me to choose 9 meals (lunches/dinners) based on the lurking I've done on the boards for the past couple of months.

Here is our tentative itinerary:
Arrive afternoon by train
Evening wine tasting of "My Italians" at Vinoroma.
Dinner at Da Remo

Jewish Ghetto and Trastevere

Ancient Rome
Dinner at Pizzeria Tonda

Vatican City
Lunch at Pizzarium
Vatican City
Dinner at L'Arcangelo for gnocchi

Galleria Borghese
Dinner at Antico Arco

Here's the hard part - I have 3 lunches open and 1 dinner and I have interest in all of the following:
Colline Emiliane (since we're not going to the ER area and my husband had his heart set on bolognese)
L'Asino d'oro
Trattoria Monti
Da Danilo
Trattoria Cardona

We have no problem with eating our large meal during the day and eating lighter in the evening, but we may need to eat 2 big meals in order to fit in more choices! Do we give up one of our pizzas? :(

Thank you in advance for your advice and guidance!
