Foodie trip to Italy- what restaurants shouldn’t I miss in Rome? What’s the best plan for a day of wine tasting in Florence? Where should we take pasta-making lessons in Bologna, and is there really nothing to do in Milan?

It’s that time again. Previous questions seem to be outdated or cover other cities, so... Over Thanksgiving, my foodie family is trying Italy this year. We’re starting off in Rome, spending a few days in Florence, Bologna, and then 48 hours in Milan. I’d love restaurant recommendations for all these cities- avoiding touristy things whenever possible. So far, I've considered and decided against La Pergola and La Rosetta- I don’t mind booking a few more expensive places, but it doesn’t seem necessary. I like having lunch and dinner planned for every day, and we can figure in about two gelato “snacks,” too. We’d love to do a tour of wineries in Tuscany, for a half or whole day, a day-trip to Parma or Modena for cheese/vinegar tastings or tours, and take a pasta-making class in Bologna- anyone have any experience with any of these? My parents have already said they don’t care to see “The Last Supper” in Milan, but I don’t know what else we’ll do the 2 days we’re there. What other foods/restaurants/bakeries/shops should we not miss?
As always, my sister and I expect be staying out after our parents have gone back to the hotel. We're still both in our mid-20s, both single, and we'd still love some nightlife suggestions for any of the cities above.
