Rome - Reservations needed? (Salumeria Con Cucina Roscioli, La Campana, L'Arcangelo)

Will do... thanks for the tip on the room, very nice to find these kinds of things out beforehand. Hopefully our lack of Italian won't land us in the wine cellars or equivalent too often.

Is the wine cellar that bad? As I'll be on my honeymoon, I wonder if a quieter atmosphere would be preferable to a rowdy one.

Rome - Reservations needed? (Salumeria Con Cucina Roscioli, La Campana, L'Arcangelo)

I will be traveling to Rome in June for my honeymoon, and I was hoping I might get some insight into whether I need reservations for the restaurants I've chosen. My list is as follows:

Friday - Salumeria Con Cucina Roscioli
Saturday - All'Orro (already have a reservation)
Sunday - La Campana
Monday - L'Arcangelo

Thanks for any insight you can provide!

Gnocchi in Rome OTHER THAN Thursday?

Dave, thanks for the tip. We do love seafood and we don't have any plans for Taormina yet so we will definitely check that out!

Katie, thanks so much, that's music to my ears! We will plan on calling Arcangelo when we arrive so we can have the gnocchi before we leave. My fiancée will be very happy!

Gnocchi in Rome OTHER THAN Thursday?

First off, let me say that I've been scouring this board for dining recommendations for my upcoming honeymoon in June. It's been a great resource, and I want to thank all of the members that have contributed.

Getting to the point of my post - I have just learned (through reading posts here and elsewhere) that Thursday is gnocchi day in Rome. Unfortunately, we will be arriving on a Friday and leaving on Tuesday, so we'll be unable to partake in some of the great options that have been listed here. As my finacee is a HUGE gnocchi fan, I was wondering if there are any restaurants anyone can recommend that serve gnocchi as part of their regular menu, so we can order it on a day other than Thursday? I understand that some restaurants make gummy gnocchi from dried potato flakes, and we are certainly not looking for that kind experience. We've had some great gnocchi in our hometown (Philly) and are really hoping to try some while in Rome.

Alternatively, we'll be travling to Taormina after our stay in Rome, so if there are better options there, that would work as well. Thanks!
