I found this small bar-restaurant after 8pm one night - €9 got me a great cocktail and access to the buffet - bruschetta, couscous, rice salad, pizzette, chicken. On a quiet street away from the madness around the fountain, most business comes from the office lunch crowd.Staff were friendly and efficient.

It's a great place, simple, quiet and with a good ambiance. The price is nice. A great cost/benefit. The food is good, with a nice variety. They have a very comfortable place, in a big table inside a little library.

The area around the Trevi is chock-a-block full of restaurants and pizzerias catering to the tourist throngs. It's enough to make your head spin when you're looking for a reasonably priced lunch. What a pleasant surprise to chance upon Assaggi d'Autore, only 2 blocks off the main drag. For one thing, it's delightfully peaceful. Check out the airy back room with it's library-like atmosphere and the breezy window looking out on some rare (in this area) greenery. The waitstaff were cordial and business-like and the 10 Euro buffet with bread and water proved to be a fresh and tasty bargain. After weeks of pizza and pasta, it was refreshing to have a variety of fresh greens to choose from. As others have noted, you may want to stick to water and have your other beverages elsewhere; (a 330ml Peroni was 5 Euros) I rate this little place as excellent even if it's not quite fine dining. For the location and the price, you just can't beat the food and atmosphere.

This little gem was tucked up a side street near the Trevi Fountain. Buffet lunch including bread and water for 10 euro. The buffet plate was a good size and there was a large variety of items on offer including salads, veg, pasta, rice, potatoes and meatballs. The service was helpful and friendly. There were only a couple of small tables outside for coffee and cakes (the cakes did look delicious but we had no room after the buffet!) I would suggest sticking to water to drink as the beers we had were a tad pricey but it was frequented by lots of local office workers which is usually a good recommendation. One couple had a take-away buffet (6euro) and ate it on the church steps nearby then came back to the bar for esspresso!

We called here late morning and had a very enjoyable 30 minute stay. The Expressos were fantastic as was the Italian Easter cake. Reasonable price and well worth the time and money
