Trattoria Diane, which took a Roman holiday and then started emphasizing the city's cuisine, now offers a fixed-price, three-course Sunday dinner from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Cost: $29.95 plus tax and tip.
The selections include the house's excellent vegetable appetizers, among them sweet-sour butternut squash, fried artichokes, Brussels sprouts with lemon and pecorino cheese, fried zucchini blossoms and grilled zucchini. Also: rice balls with mozzarella, fried shrimp, grilled shrimp and meatballs in tomato-rosemary sauce.
Stellar pastas head the main courses: bucatini all'Amatriciana, spaghetti alla carbonara, butternut-squash ravioli, ricotta gnocchi and fettuccine Bolognese among them. Roasted chicken, saltimbocca, pan-seared pork chop and the house's Tuscan pot roast lead the meat dishes; pan-seared salmon and diver scallops, the seafood.
