I'm sure they will love our daughter - she's very outgoing and has bright blue eyes that always draw lots of attention. She has recently decided that her favourite food is pizza, second favourite is noodles so I think we'll do fine.

Is it typically acceptable to make a reservation by email? Two weeks in advance, or more/less? Is it considered rude to send an email in English?
Some restaurants only accept reservations by email. If their website allows it, then it's fine, preferable actually. Two weeks, or even less is fine. It is not rude to send an email in english. Y

ou would get points, however, for learning how to throw in a few words in Italian to show you made some effort. You can go to google translate and put together a sentence such as, "Scusi, non parlo italiano." Then say, "Can you help me in english? I would like to make a reservation." Or something like that. Every reasonable size restaurant in Rome has at least some english speaking staff, especially when it comes to reservations.
