Ah Rome - what a wonderful place to eat, if you know where you're going and have some insight.  Below are my favorite places to dine, some a little less "casual" but all are wonderful.  

1) Roma Sparita  - if there is one place you eat in Rome, this is it.  Seriously.  Their Cacio e Pepe is amazing.  That's what you should order, even if it's for everyone to share.  Beware! They are closed on 1 or 2 days a week.  Also order the Caciofi Frito. They have outdoor seating

2) Maccheroni - It's near Piazza Navona I believe, and it's located in an old butcher shop.  It's one of Jamie Oliver's favorite places (Food Network Chef)  Gusto

3)   Ristorante Paris - wonderful Roman cooking, located in Trastevere area. Amazing.  Great for Lunch or Dinner

4)  Gusto - amazing seafood, pizza place and wine bar.  It's a "little stuffy" but it's amazing.  Near Piazza del Popolo. 

5) Assunta Madre - Fresh Fish arrives in the afternoon before opening for dinner.  The restaurant won't open until the fish arrives.  Lots of Roman "Celebs" go here. (Via Giulia, 1)

6)  Da Baffetto - near piazza navona, great pizza / pasta / outdoor seating.

7)  Giolitti - what trip to rome would be complete without gelato? Its amazing.

"Enoteca Barberini" was the best place I ate in Italy and it is a casual lunch bar. Happy hour was around 3pm with half off all drinks. Try the Pizza Barbarini, it has prosciutto, salami and pepperoni and an amazing  combination of cheeses. Also give their Cosmopolitan a try, I absolutely loved them. 

Here is the address Google maps gives: Via del Tritone, 116  Enoteca Barberini41.903516,12.488128

Best of luck!

Edy at Vicolo del Babuino, 4, Roma

+39 06 3600 1738, around the corner where Gregory Peck's apartment was in the movie "Roman Holiday " with Audrey Hepburn. The food was very good and reasonably priced. We stayed at the Hotel Mozart Rome nearby which was nice with a roof top garden and a friendly staff. Nearby was the Spanish Steps, Piazza Navona, and the Villa Borghese

I don't have restaurant recommendations as just about everywhere we ate was good.  But do have a tip for you.  If you sit down to eat, it will cost you more, which is why you will see so many people standing up to eat.
