Help! Suggestions for birthday meal restaurant in Rome and a good bakery!

I’m going to Rome with my boyfriend this weekend for 4 days.

I have two requests for help!!

First, I wonder if someone could suggest an inexpensive or good value restaurant for his birthday meal on the Tuesday of our trip.
Some place which is traditionally Italian with a relaxed atmosphere. I have read lots of post with loads of different restaurants with everyone’s recommendations but I’m not sure about the prices for them all.
My boyfriend loves antipasto so somewhere with good antipasto would be great. I am sure he would be quite happy just eating that! I speak a little Italian so I’m not worried if the waiters don’t speak English. If you do recommend one please let me know if I would I need to book.

As it is his birthday could anyone suggest a bakery to get a little cake from?
I don’t think I would take this to the restaurant as he is quite shy. Even sparklers in the gelato may be to embarrassing for him!! Do Romans even have birthday cakes?
