    I would say that you should be ok waiting until you get there, I lived in Italy for 4 months and never had a problem getting a reservation anywhere (even the day before). If you're really nervous about it I would call the hotel so that they can make it for you. You can try calling and seeing if they speak english at the restaurant (because a lot of people speak english in Rome).

      I would email your hotel concierge - much easier & clearer that way for all concerned!

        You can walk over to the restaurant in the AM, drop in and make a reservation. Or phone, which requires some rudimentary Italian. If you like to eat early, just show up at the restaurant. Nothing is carved in stone. Have fun!
