Last minute Rome itinerary help!

My girlfriend and I are going to Rome tomorrow for three days (wednesday night through sat night) and it is my first time in Italy. I have read through these boards like crazy not to mention lots of other websites but my head is spinning trying to settle on places to go. any help would be greatly appreciated!!

We are staying in the Jewish Ghetto off of Piazza Maffei near Piazza Costaguti. Having never been to Italy before, I am looking forward to trying pasta, pizza, gelato, espresso, etc. I'm thinking we have three dinners to plan and three lunches/snacks. We're probably more interested in trattorias/enotecas than fancier places but might splurge for one dinner. Here is what I have so far. please advise!!

Wednesday night: we get in around 9:30 pm. Noticed that Il Sanpietrino is right near us and is open late. Have read good things about it...Can't tell if it's pricey or not (ie how much for a pasta dish?)

Other things I'm considering:

-pizza bianca at Antico Forno
-gelato at San Crispino
-espresso at Sant Eustachio
-tartufo at tazza de oro
-dinner at one or two of these: campana, cavour 313, antico arco, Nuovo Mondo (pizza), Armando al Pantheon, Checchino Dal, matriciana, augusto
-lunch at sosa margherita or Paris in Trastevere
also, a friend told me that many bars will put out free food to go with drinks. any places people recommend for this? or does the food tend to be not so great??
Thanks in Advance!!!
