Rome Dining Recommendations - Going next week

Just stumbled across this board and boy am I glad I did, what a wealth of information. However; I have read so much conflicting advice on the various restaurants it has confused me further, I guess you would say I am on information overload. Being Italian and raised on made from scratch home cooked Italian food has spoiled my palette. While in Rome I am not looking for anything fancy or expensive although price is not a factor, I am most interested in charming trattoria's that have quality ingredients from scratch. I have been to Rome a few times so this time I am not doing anything touristy just want to take some nice strolls and really take in the city. I always go to the market at Campo Dei Fiori but it seems like I should try out the market in Testaccio, can anyone enlighten me as what the difference are of the two markets? Also I was thinking of the following restaurants based on the board recommendations - Checchino Del 1887, Cavour 313, Trattoria Felice and pizza at Roscioli (I love the real thin crust). I only have two days in Rome which is next Friday and Saturday. I appreciate any information and recommendations. Oh yea and of coarse your favorite Gelateria. It seems most of the board is partial to Giolitti. Mahalo
