Rome near Spanish Steps

Hi guys,
We'll be staying on via Sistina near the Spanish Steps for a weekend in early April. For dinner, I'd like to stay walking distance from the hotel or, if further away, it must be something really special.

Near the hotel, I was thinking about these 3 places: Nino, Alla Rampa and Palatium. I know Nino is Tuscan and Palatium Lazian, but what is Alla Rampa? And are these restaurants still great? I've read reviews from several years back...

I was also thinking about having one special dinner. Is there a modern, creative, innovative and still decidedly Italian (better yet, Lazian) restaurant in Rome? If the food is really amazing, then all the other factors (price, location...) don't matter. Otherwise I prefer the simple no-fuss genuine Italian trattoria. What are your thoughts?

And lastly, what is seasonal at the beginning of April in Rome? I guess it's a little awkward time - too late for citrus, too early for artichokes, right? So what to eat?

Thanks a lot!
