I'm going to give you some food advices also in the touristic area where You should go for sightseeing.

In Via Dei Greci you can find Ami, where you can find street food, it's perfect for a quick lunch.

In the afternoon have an ice-cream in Via Degli Uffici Del Vicario at Giolitti

Walk through Piazza della Rotonda up to Portico d'Ottavia where you can have a delicious dinner at Ba'' Ghetto (i think reservation is required).

Refrigerate in the night with a grattachecca at Il Chiosco Di Sora Mirella kiosk near Ponte Cestio

I know, It's a long walk but I use to do it, It's beautiful!

One piece of advice I like to give is to walk past any restaurant that has a "Turistico" Menu. Usually this will be displayed, maybe in English.  

To accomplish this, make sure to research the differences between Ristorante and Trattoria.  (Trattoria is the cheaper one)  

Then make sure also to walk 50 feet or so down an alley. Check out if there's places to eat there. We've found great places by literally walking off the beaten path.

I would refer you to some nice blogs on food in Rome. There are always interesting, fun, and typical restaurants off the beaten path. These are some I refer to when I am traveling in Rome:

Katie Parla

Eleonora Baldwin

Elizabeth Minchilli

I also read the food columns in The American which is an online magazine that has a good food column on Rome.
