need suggestion for tonight

Hi Chowhounders....
Last night in Rome, and my bday dinner tonight.. Been in Italy 2 weeks, I'm all 'pasta-d' out. Had some ideas originally -- but most are the traditional menus that I have seen everywhere. We are staying near Termini and Repubblica Station. Could go for a great steak... tried the fried artichokes - - and it was mostly burnt - - would love to erase that memory with a stellar substitute :-)

Any recommendations for a spot with atmosphere? Wine not too important as I am preggo :-)

Doesn't have to be top end either... just somewhere we can enjoy, and preferably not super far... A nice dinner away from the tourist traps.

GRAZIE!!!

Vinoroma,
Thank you for your suggestion. TA did have some tips on Ischia as well. Will keep on the lookout on that message board too.
Much appreciated.

Erica, Thank you again for your generous help! It is much appreciated. All of your tips are quite helpful. Any must sees/dos on the island? I've read of the major attractions... like you said, lots to take in. Favorite beach spot?

Erica, Thank you so much for your reply!!!! We will be staying by ischia porto - but totally willing to tour around the island and scope things out over our 6 days there. Especially for something special. Not sure about day trips, that's a possibility - to Pompeii and/or Amalfi. Aside from a few places mentioned in your report, it seems like the remainder of your meals were not so memorable. I was hoping for a nice market to grab fruit and sandwiches for day trips to the beach. I saw you mentioned one. Any other tips on the island? Thanks so much!!! We're going to be there mid-May... getting excited.
I will post a recap report once we get back stateside...

Hi CH folks. My DH and I will be in Ischia mid-May for 6 days. Looking for recs on where to and (not to ) eat. I will be 5 months pregnant... looking for good and clean places - organic when possible. Low-mid/moderate range in price no $$$$$ places.... we'll save that for a splurge on my bday in Rome.

Have checked the forums for Rome and Firenze recommendations and have to say I am a bit overwhelmed :-) So many differing opinions...

THANKS!!!!
