My husband and I are spending the first two weeks of October in Italy for our honeymoon. We'll spend one night on Lake Como (planning to have lunch in Lenno and dinner in Bellagio), two nights in Emilia-Romagna, two nights in Rome, and one in Umbria. Then we'll slow down a bit and spend a week in Chianti...I'll probably ask for recommendations for that part in a different post.
I'd love recommendations for great restaurants in all the places we'll visit, but I have two specific questions.
We were planning to spend one night in Bologna and one elsewhere in Emilia-Romagna--preferably someplace in the countryside or a small town with fantastic food. We don't care where we go first (and could spend both nights in Bologna if that makes more sense) but are trying to arrange things around when we can get the best food. I've gotten lots of ideas from this board, but am looking for recommendations for places that will be open for lunch and/or dinner this Sunday and/or Monday.
After two days/nights in Rome (we're staying in Trastevere and have restaurant ideas but would love more recommendations) we want to spend next Thursday night in southern Umbria. Possibilities include Todi, Amelia, Orvieto--or an agriturismo with/near a good restuarant. This is the part of the trip (probably a day and a half, 1-2 lunches, 1 breakfast, 1 dinner) that I've researched the least, so all recommendations are welcome.
