Answers

A good restaurante reliable slightly expensive but worthy is Dal Toscano in via Germanico, close to the Vatican
Settembrini, Via Settembrini 27 is a great restaurant, but not cheap. However, they have just opened a great little cafe/bookshop near by which is good for less expensive bites. Also, Pizzeria San Marco at Via Tacito, 29 is great for pizzas, pastas and meats, at good prices.
I suggest you:

Trattoria Gallo Brillo: website (viale delle Milizie 116)
La Berninetta: Via Pietro Cavallini 14 – 063203895
Bacco & Cucina: website
Candido: website
Osteria dell'Angelo, via Bettolo, 24/06 3729470

Enjoy Rome!

Giacomelli, Via Faà di Bruno, 25 is a really "local trattorìa" very traditional and not expensive, where you may feel the tradition of the roman way of cooking and eating.
Should you walk a little farer from Piazza Mazzini I may confirm the suggestion of my friend Andrea for the "dal Toscano al Girarrosto" in Via Germanico, 58 , but I may add "Il Matriciano", in via dei gracchi, 55, probably the best restaurant in the area, still at reasonable prices and still in line with the roman cooking tradition and "atmosphere"; they have a wonderful selection of wines too, so if you do not want to spend too much but gain a very good quality at the same time, you may try their Peppoli (Chianti selection) or get enchanted by their Brunello ...
Should you like to have guided orientational tours in the citi of Rome, you may have a look at my website website.
