Need help whittling down the Rome restaurant list for our March honeymoon

k23peters | Feb 12, 201212:50 PM

Hello Rome experts!

I am finalizing our itinerary for Rome (8-Mar - 11-Mar), Florence (12-Mar - 15-Mar) and Venice (15-Mar - 17Mar). I have a dizzying array of restaurants to choose from and have been culling the blogs to get the most recent/best places. As background, I used to be in the wine industry, and my husband is an accomplished amateur chef, so we are definitely looking for high quality food/wine experiences over 'chic' environments. We've had lots of Michelin-starred experiences, and enjoy those, but since this is our first trip to Italy (and our honeymoon), we are looking for true foodie gems.

To that end, here is what I have - if you can help me narrow down to the BEST experiences, I would greatly appreciate it. We are also doing Kenny's food tour while we are in town, but are passing on the traditional 'cooking class'...

8-Mar (arriving in rome at 4:30pm, so dinner only): glass hostartia or l'asino d'oro. hotel recommended Hi Res, but I saw some poor reviews recently.

9-Mar - considering lunch at Enoteca cavour 313 b/c we are doing all of the 'touristy' things that day. Dinner at Settembrini or Palatium. (Restaurant recommended Babbo also)

Other places on the list:
Da Danilo
Ristorante Tema
La Vineria Reggio
la Gatta Mangiona
La Taverna dei Monti

Clearly you see our problem here, as there are more restaurants on this condensed list than we have meals to accommodate! I am also worried because there is no pizza listed yet...HELP!
- what's on the list that we should take off?
- what is the priority?
- what are we missing, especially in terms of great wine bars where we can taste lots of varietals?

Thank you for your help!
