Anyone want to weigh in on our Rome restaurant options/itinerary?

Jump to last reply

I'll be in Rome in a few weeks with my parents who are in their mid-70s. We have three days together and I intend to eat! I'm a little worried about wearing my folks out with my obsessive and perhaps excessive scheduling, so I would love a reality check and/or suggestions. We're staying near the Spanish Steps, so I'm also conscious of travel times (we are likely to take taxis unless it's really close). What do you think? Am I trying to pack too much in? Should we skip Cesare al Casaletto and just grab slices of pizza at Pizzarium?

Also, I will be in Rome for one more day without them, so if anyone has any ideas about good places for solo diners, let me know. I'd love to try something in Testaccio . . . .

Day 1 -
lunch at L'Asino D'Oro at 1 p.m.
(3 p.m. tour that starts near the Colosseo)
dinner at Armando al Pantheon at 8:30 p.m.

Day 2 -
(Vatican tour in the morning)
lunch at Cesare al Casaletto at 1:30 p.m.
(early evening architecture tour that ends near Trevi Fountain)
dinner at Nino at 9 p.m.

Day 3 -
morning food tour & lunch
dinner at La Gensola at 9 p.m.
