When in Rome, stay where MeFites have stayed!

Travelling to Rome at the end of January and looking for accommodation recommendations. I'm looking for something that's away from the most touristic areas, but still within a 5-10 minute walk of public transportation. Open to hotels, guest houses, or apartment rentals. I welcome your recommendations of places you've stayed in the last 2-3 years.

Taking bottled water home from a restaurant in Italy?

I'm in Italy for a little while and figuring out the restaurant customs — including purchasing a liter of flat or sparkling water at each meal. Today, I was still a little thirsty but had to run, and asked if I could take the half-empty (glass, but obviously commercial) bottle. The server said I couldn't, and I asked if the same was true for plastic bottles. She said that, in either case, it's not appropriate to take leftover water. What's up with that (assuming it's generally true)?

But we're also looking for other unique or special experiences we could do as a family that would really make our trip special. [more inside]
