Will be driving down from Florence on Easter Sunday and hope to find a good meal. Will be staying at the Santa Chiara. Any suggestions on places for both holidays: Easter Sunday and Monday? Thanks so much!

    Sorry...just saw that although I searched for Florence at Easter, this post is about Rome.

      Grano, a short walk from that hotel, will be open both days. Checchino, which is usually closed on Sundays habitually makes an exception for Easter and will probably be open.

        Thanks so much. We have Grano on the short list for Sundays and it's good to know that they will be open on Easter as well. Thanks, too, for your ever vigilant and excellent comments on the board. Cheers!

          I just saw that puntarella rossa published a review on Grano. Even though I live in Rome, I have seldom heard of this restaurant. I just came across this review by Puntarella Rossa, who seems to be quite reliable. Here's the link:

            I think Puntarella Rossa is very reliable, and I find it refreshing that he doesn't indulge in the hyperbole of some Rome food blogs. Unfortunately, Google Translate can't always cope with his idiomatic and ironic writing style.
