Eating in Rome on Christmas

We'll be in Rome on Christmas day, and people warn me that "everything" will be closed. I assume that restaurants in hotels will be open, but I don't want to just walk in randomly. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Chocolate in Bulk for baking/candy

Thanks so much for the info about Wild Harvest. I checked out their website to see what they carried and will give them a call to find out more specifics. £4 to bring in my car is still cheaper than taking the Eurostar to shop in Paris!

Chocolate in Bulk for baking/candy

I recently moved to London from the US and am a serious home baker and candy maker. Unfortunately, I can't seem to find any store - online or bricks & mortar - that sells chocolate in bulk. I'm looking for Callebaut, Cacao Barry, Valrhona, Amedei, etc. in blocks, chips, callets, pistoles, get the picture. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
