    Many of the places on your list have been discussed here in the recent past. A place like Sostanza has been discussed (and recommended!) often.

    If you go to the upper right-hand corner of this page, you can use the search feature to find what people have had to say about them. Just enter the name of each place that interests you.

      You will make yourself crazy by overplanning. Your list is much too long.

      Wherever you are in Italy, one afternoon, just walk around an area with restaurants. The menu is posted in the window by law, so just look at it and look in at the ambience. When you like something, go in, or make a reservation for later or the next day. You won't go wrong. Just relax and enjoy!
