Rome -- in search of informal, rustic, carefully prepared, beautifully fresh cooking that doesn't break the bank

Greetings Hounds,

I see a ton of posts about restaurants in Rome but none that quite answers my particular question (at least not one I could easily find). I will be heading there for four days and nights in late June with two very adventurous kid eaters (11 and 13). We are looking for places that:

1) serve home style cooking and nothing too precious, dainty or haute -- simple food prepared well;

2) use impeccably fresh, seasonal ingredients (like our favorite haunts in San Francisco -- NOPA and Cotogna, for example);

3) do not break the bank! This will be part of a long trip, and we need to pace ourselves. I hope we'll be able to dine for under 40 Euros per person

Are Perilli, Urbana 47 and Settimio al Pellegrino places we should consider? And what others for lunch and dinner?

Thanks all,
Tobias
