Sunday to Wednesday in Rome,nr Trastavere

Hey all

Am staying in Rome 25 to 28 Nov, for my girlfriend's birthday. We are staying on Via Petroselli and I was hoping for some lunch and dinner recs, particularly within walking distance.

Everyone raves about Trastavere but I have no clue where to go. I want to avoid tourist traps although I can only speak a little Italian ( we are talking basic stuff here). Fish /seafood a big favourite of mine but girlfriend is pasta addict.

Recs for one ' spoil yourself, who cares about cost ',one chilled out place for good pizza, and one place I can get great squid or ( even better ) totani would be excellent. Authentic yet friendly is preferred atmosphere.

One place I ve come across on other sites is Trattoria de Gensole (a ?). Any views or thoughts on this ?( including where it is !)

Finally, any good places for a late night drink, given we are staying at worst time of the week !

Thanks for any help you can give ...
