Osteria da Nerone, via Terme di Tito 96, specially known for their antipasti buffet. Basic interior but you can have a view of the Colosseum.
near Colosseum metro stop.

I haven't tried this one
Pizzeria Leonia, via Leonina 84. Near Colosseum. Cheap Eats in Italy 1996 said:
"one of the best slices of pizza you will have in Rome..it is a virtual mob scene around lunchtime when the wait for your number to be called seems endless…pizzas are cut in pieces as large or small as you want, I suggest trying two or three varieties." Michelin's Green Guide to Rome says
"This tiny shop is always packed at lunch time. Offers a wide range of pizzas."

Jim, I had been recommended the following and would definitely return:

Trattoria Pasqualino (Moderate)
Via SS. Quattro (betwn. Via Claudia & Via Ostilia by the Forum)
Roma, Italy
06/700-4576 phone
This little Trattoria was perfect. Located on a quiet little street not too far from the Forum I was impressed with how many locals frequented the place. Besides the fact that the meal was delicious the waiter took very good care of me and even gave me a complimentary chilled Limoncello in a frosted cordial glass at the end of my meal. This was my first experience in dining al fresco and I was absolutely hooked. Unfortunately, every Trattoria I ever dine at will (unfairly?) be compared to this one.

As you walk from the Coloseum to San clemente you pass thru a working class neighborhood. We ahd a great lunch at Trattoria Luzzi. Huge plates of basic pasta and a very nice antipasti buffet. Very cheap, 4 pasta only L45,000 or about $20.00 last summer.

Two come to mind, a few blocks from the Colosseo; Mario's Hostaria, a couple of blocks north; Charly's Sauciere, about 5 blocks east. Both are quite good.
