  1. Excellent selection DaisyM!
    For Sunday lunch I'd suggest more a Roman trattoria. Monti as probably you have read has preparations from Marche region. However if I had to choose between the two I'd go for it instead of Colline Emiliane, that has many estimators in this board. The situation changes of course if you want absolutely to taste ER food in Rome, in this case I also agree that CE is the best choice.
    Sorry for my English and I hope it helps.

      Thank you so much!

    2. Have you booked la pergola yet? They fill up months in advance.
      Between your two choices i'd go gor trattoria monti. But if you want to have a more roman meal for sunday lunch, i'd suggest flavio velavevodetto.
      Am also debating if it is the best idea to place la gensola on monday. I love the place, but their strength is fish (that is what you should be eating there) and i personally avoid fish on mondays. Maybe you can swap antico arco and gensola?

        Or La Gensola for Sunday lunch. Or Piperno, but then I wouldn't want any dinner. Actually, we had lunch last Sunday at La Gensola (which I like, don't love) and I didn't eat any dinner that evening.

          Yes, I booked La Pergola several months ago. We'll be celebrating my husband's birthday there. Good suggestion...I hadn't thought about the Monday issue!
