Trattoria Diane, which took a Roman holiday and, suitably inspired, started emphasizing the city's cuisine, offers a three-course, fixed-price dinner on Sunday. Cost: $29.95, plus tax and tip.
The choices include many of the house's excellent vegetable dishes, among them sweet-sour butternut squash, fried zucchini blossoms with goat cheese, Brussels sprouts with lemon and Pecorino Romano cheese, and roasted beets with ricotta salata. Also: rice balls with mozzarella, meatballs with tomato-rosemary sauce, fried shrimp, grilled shrimp and roasted figs with Gorgonzola cheese, arugula and prosciutto.
Main dishes include pastas such as spaghetti alla carbonara, bucatini all'Amatriciana, fettuccine Bolognese, ricotta gnocchi and butternut-squash ravioli. You also may select roasted chicken, pan-seared pork chop, Tuscan pot roast, pan-seared diver scallops and pan-seared salmon.
Desserts are the chef's daily selections.
