Osteria Barberini is an excellent neighborhood restaurant located near Piazza Barberini. When travelling, I enjoy trying a variety of restaurants and don't typically go back to a single restaurant more than once. But, Osteria Barberini is one of the few places that I will make...an exception for. After enjoying dinner their on a previous trip, my wife and I enjoyed two wonderful meals there on our recent trip to Rome. Although the restaurant specializes in dishes prepared with truffles, they offer a wide variety of wonderful dishes at reasonable prices and the service provided by the wait staff is excellent. Osteria Barberini is a very small restaurant and it is popular; so, make your reservations in advance !More

Small, cozy and ‘homey’ place with the best food I ate in Italy. After 2 weeks traveling in Lombardia, Valpoliclia, Veneto and Lazio I can say that was my favorite restaurant and the best culinary experience I had here. Thanks for the lovely waiters and...the great chef Gabriel we had a fantastic evening.More

Consistently excellent food and service. The staff is polite, friendly and efficient. The menu is divided into two main sections: traditional Roman cuisine and dishes with tartufo. Always a pleasant experience to eat here.

Incredible truffles. We had the truffles lasagna and white truffles pasta. Best ever, if you enjoy truffles. It's hard to find but worth it. Very small and should make reservations. They seem very traditional and independent, not chasing the next customer.

The food was less than average. The risotto was uneaten. The dishes were very small and expensive. Its a place that might be nice in the 1980. In my opinion ,itsnt a place to spend your time.

Came just before closing at 2:30, with family of 5. Came from the pouring rain, but they wouldn't have 5 people. Practically threw us back to the pouring rain.

Celebrating a major anniversary we were not disappointed by Osteria Barberini. It was recommended by Room Mate Filippo, a great hotel in the same street, and they certainly know their job. The entrance doesn't look much, but the service, the food, and the pricing -...they made this a perfect night.More

We choose this restaurant for its choice of truffle (white and black) dishes. There are about 10-15 dishes (including starters) and if you are a fan of truffles , the restaurant is a good choice. If you are looking for a Michelin style place it...is the wrong choice. It is very authentic with the usually found small tables in Rome either inside (dark and partially downstairs) or in front of the restaurant on the street. Food was good, service was good. If you are not looking for truffles it is not different to many other good local Roman Restaurants.More

We were a bit harshly welcomed since we did not have a reservation, and had a table in the basement floor. Rather cramped and sterile with irrelevant wall pictures. Air conditioning gave cold air and we had to remark this several times before it was...adjusted. The waiters treated us efficiently without much enthusiasm and spirit of italian cooking. We had dishes with tomato sauce that was far to thick and covering. Wines was average. We did not taste truffles that is announced as a speciality. For our part it will not be a next visit.More

we respect the opinion of the customers. The customers have taken their seats in the tables most requested by the many customers, who also appreciate our furniture, intimate and comfortable with background jazz music. I'm sorry for the Air conditioning, but the rooms are equipped...More
