Lisa, thank you for your reply. You might have confirmed my belief that I might over have trattoria'ed. I think I might switch and go to Favio on Monday and try L'Asino D'Oro on Friday. My concern is that my wife specified she does not want anything too eclectic.

Thank you all for this incredible resource (especially Vinoroma, Elizabeth and Katie)! I dont know how I could have done this without this board! I am taking my beautiful wife to Rome for her 40th birthday. We both agree that we want simple excellent Italian food. We are staying at the Boscolo Palace Hotel in Via Veneto. l Below is my tentative itenerary and would welcome any and all comments.

We arrive Friday morning.

Friday : Lunch- Pizzarium
Dinner- Flavio

Sat: Lunch Rosciolli- A little confused, we are not looking for a huge lunch but want a few dishes along with some meat and cheese, do we make reservations for the restaurant or can we just grab a seat at the counter?
Dinner -La Gensola

Sunday: Lunch-Perrelli
Dinner- We are thinking we are going to not want another huge meal. Might wing this meal or go for pizza or to an enoteca around our hotel, would welcome any thoughts.

Monday: Lunch- Beppe e Soui Formaggi
Dinner- Colline Emiliane or maybe Tattoria Monti

Thank You!
