Thanks so much Chowhounders. I'm relatively new to this. I've been following the Italy board for about a month now and finding it extremely helpful. So my choices, so far, for our 3 night stay in Rome after having spend 2 weeks in Sicily and Naples are listed below.. Places i have not booked yet but am considering are: La mani in Pasta, Il Convivo Troiani, Trattoria La Campana, Roman Sparitta. I'd love some feedback. I'm looking for a varied experience. Thanks for all you help.

Sun, Lunch-Colline Emiliane
Sun, Dinner Antico Arco
Mon. Dinner- Agata e Romeo

    you have clearly done your research! these are some great picks! I don't really have much to add, but it sounds like you are into fine dining so I would recommend All'Oro over Il Convivio (which I like but find a bit stuffy) and probably over Agata e Romeo, too! The Chef is doing some really lovely modern Roman and his wife is a very warm host.

    For sunday Lunch, I like Colline Emiliane and La Campana (lasagna at both is good; be sure to book). Trattoria Monti is also a good Sunday lunch spot (booking essential), as is L'Asino d'Oro (exactly 1 month old today but already talked about quite a bit on this board).

    Enjoy!

      Thanks, Katie. I always appreciate your comments. You have been a major influence on my choices. I may post the same request for feedback for my Sicily, Naples, and Revello choices,

        Difficult to add something to your selection and Katie's great suggestions!
        Maybe with the above list you would miss traditional "cheap" Roman food (only Roma Sparita is mentioned in your post). Between the many good possibilities you can find in Rome two possibilities are Felice in Testaccio area (probably the most famous) and Armando al Pantheon.
        Another addition can be Pizzarium, with the unique pizza by the slice made by Gabriele Bonci. Also this is a very popular place and you can find already information about it in this board. It is an excellent lunch stop (not seated) if you plan to visit Vatican area but it worth a trip also if you stay in other areas. Subway stop "Cipro-Musei Vaticani" (Metro A) is close by.

          thanks for your reply. I think hidden in my request for a varied experience was the feeling that all I had booked was too upscale. So I appreciate your suggestions. Thanks again and any more suggestions for ''real roman food" would be much appreciated.

            I'm jumping in late, but can add a few of my favorites.
            One of my favorite places for Sunday lunch remains Perilli. Very much old-fashioned 'real' roman place in Testaccio.
            Saturday Dinner (which I see you haven't booked yet): For something on the new and creative side of things I would say Settembrini. For a more 'trattoria' type setting, and basically only fish, how about La Gensola?
            Monday Dinner: A new restaurant, just opened a few months ago: Vino e Camino (Piazza dell'Oro)
            (Sorry, but for some reason adding links not working, so if you have trouble finding anything, just ask)
            And have to add that you should try to fit in L'Asino d'Oro at some point. Saturday lunch or dinner. Their closing hours have been shifting around a bit, but they were closed this past Sun/Mon. For up to date info, check on their FB page.

              thanks so much minchillin. L"Asino d'Oro is top on my list now. I looked at their menu and though it was great. I may replace Agata e Romeo with it. We're at the Borghese Gallery on Sunday am so we'll probably stay with Colline Emiliane for lunch since it's near by, I'll check out the new places you added to see where and when I might add them.. And ,never too late to contribute, Much appreciated.

                If you can afford it Agata e Romeo is a wonderful place to experience top level Roman food. Last time we had their tasting menu and it was one of the greatest food experience ever tried.
                Antico Arco is less expensive and we'd absolutely mantain it in this list.
                I try to add Vino e Camino link. It is one of our favorite spots in the historical center. Spacious, quite informal, with traditional food both Roman and from other Italian Regions. Minchilli has already written it is "new" in Rome but the same family is managing since a long time one of the best restaurants in Bracciano (lake area, some km outside Rome).

                Concerning "real roman food" additions, other restaurants close to touristic areas that we definitely recommend are Flavio al Velavevodetto in Testaccio (especially if it is warm and you can eat outside on their terrace) and L'Arcangelo in Prati, that is more expensive and creative. Just let us know if you need additional information that can help you to choose.

                  L'Asino d'Oro is great, but not a "replacement" for Agata e Romeo and really really iffy to be open on monday (they are still trying to find the right opening times - do not trust any info on their site, they don't feel bound by it, best is to call!).

                    Thanks for adding link for Vino e Camino. For some reason I have a lot of trouble adding links half the time.
