Restaurant Recommendations for Venice, Rome, Positano

My wife and I will be celebrating our 15 year anniversary and her 40th birthday in Italy. We are traveling from Sept 30th and Home Oct 20th.

We arrive in Venice. As this is our First time to Italy, where should we soak it all in at Venice to eat on our arrival day?

In Rome where would you recommend for an wedding anniversary dinner?

And for her 40th we will be in Positano for her 40th and where would be a great place for dinner to watch the sunset?

For the places you recommend should I make reservations in advanced?

For Rome, go to Tavernaccia da Bruno for lasagna (Sunday only) and suckling pig, both roasted in their wood-burning oven. Also go to Roscioli for classic Roman pastas (carbonara, amatriciana, gricia), cheese, salumi, and a killer wine list (reservation needed a few weeks out unless you want to eat at 11pm).

For Venice, Ai Mercanti is our favourite.
Bookings essential.

For lunch on our arrival day in Venice, we are going to try Ristorante Florida Venezia on the Grand Canal by the Rialto Bridge. Looks great!

In Positano for dinner, start out for drinks at Franco’s. It’s close to the hotel La Sierenuse. It has the iconic Positano view. Very chic, but limited seating. Get there when it opens, I think 5, to get a seat.

Have dinner down the street at Bar Bruno, outside seating with a Positano View. La Sirenuse also has that view. There is a more extensive restaurant and a less expensive one. Didn’t go there, hot I heard it’s great.
