Recomendations for a road bike?

Our budget is around 800 to 1300 bucks and my girlfriend and I have been riding hybrid bikes and after test riding a bunch of bikes we decided we definitely want to get road bikes. We plan on doing rides on the weekend. No racing but do want nice equipment that will last and are quality. Any suggestions?

So far the ones we've looked at are the Scattante Carbon Fiber

The Cannondale Cad8 6

Specialized Dolce

We're noobs so having a hard time figuring out what is the best buy. Any feed back would be greatly appreciated.
