I was just in Roma last week, and I LOVE that town!! Make sure you drink at the badass drinking fountains that are on nearly every corner. The water is cold and clean. Those fountains are my favorite part of the city.
Also, every night at around 8 or 9:00 pm there is a pub crawl that meets at a plaza above the Colloso [Coliseum] Metro station. For 10 euro, you get unlimited beer with a great view of the Coliseum and then at around 10:00 everyone goes for a pub crawl to around 3-4 pubs around the city until 1:00 am.

What specific questions do you have? I lived in Rome for about half a year, so I can answer anything you have.
The best place for a romantic getaway would be in the Trastevere neighborhood, South of Vatican.... Rather than suggesting a particular place, I'd wander through the streets until you find somewhere you like....
Good cheap food can also be found in the neighborhood of the University of Rome (La Sapienza), and there are lots of young / counter-culture ppl hanging out there.
Finally, try to stray from the usual tourist spots -- people who only visit them are often left with a bad taste in their mouth -- but all of Rome is wonderful.
