We have travelled twice to Rome with our kids. These are some our favorite places:

Gusto (Via Della Frezz, 16) - hip, loud, great proscuitto and cheese tasting menu

Il Baccaro (Via dei Spagnoli) - small restaurant, more intimate, may feel more special for the birthday

Der Pallaro (Largo del Pallaro, 15) - Not fancy, but we love this place. There is no set menu - just what they are cooking in the kitchen. It is a several course meal and prix fixe. The Momma and Poppa who run this place are wonderful and will fawn over the kids!!

Obika - This is a Mozzerella bar. Another place we love to go to. Mostly vegetarian though, probably not a great idea for the birthday dinner, but another meal perhaps.

Gusto is fun and neat, but not all that convenient. I usually eat there at least once.
Der Pallaro is also neat. Not really fancy,but very Italian.
You'll find most Rome restaurants vcery kid-friendly.
A few other thoughts:
-Dinner Cruise on the Tiber. More expensive ,but very unique.
-Ristorante Thalia near St. John Lateran church.They have a pianist and usually 1-2 tenors, a baritone and a soprano.Not the best singers ,but fun.
-Da Ciceruacchio nce a sunken jail.
Singers appear throughout the evening, accompanied by guitars and harmonicas.
Via del Porto 1

I suggest Maccheroni near the Pantheon at the corner of Via delle Coppelle and Piazza delle Coppelle. You can watch the chefs at work in the kitchen. It's fun, busy place. The waiters joke around with willing customers. Plenty of food for kids, as well as adults.
