We found Osteria Barberini on Tripadvisor looking for reasonably priced places near our hotel on the Tripadvisor map. I wanted to try some truffle dishes and these seem to be a specialty here. It's just off Piazza Barberini, home of the Triton fountain. In appearance it's a pretty typical, nice trattoria. It has several tables upstairs and a larger number... More

I live in Rome and am familiar with Italian food, but I was having two young couples-tourists as guests so I checked with Trip Advisor for a good restaurant nearer their place. This is definitely one of the best recommendations I ever followed from Trip Advisor. Ranked highly, I thought that maybe it was still over rated, like the other... More

We couldn't make booking as the phone was never answered and when we turned up to se if a tanks was free we were rather gruffly informed we should have emailed. The food was very good but there was a slight sense of strain all the time and we didn't feel relaxed as we ate. It's a very good place... More

This little spot was literally across the street from the apartment we were staying at in Rome, near the Piazza Barberini. We got lucky because we didn't have reservations but another couple did not show up so we scored a table! Both of our meals were outstanding and i had the Lasagna with truffles. Wow. It was really good. I'm... More

A nice little homestyle restaurant, with excellent emphasis on truffles. We had the truffled meatballs for starters which were nicely flavoured. We had fish and beef for mains, both of which were nicely done and had plenty of fresh truffle shaved onto them. The wine selection was good, and what started with a half bottle turned out to be several.

Visited and enjoyed this place in 2013 & decided to come back in 2014. Food are great and prices are reasonable. Owner and staff are very friendly. Our waitress, Ms. Lily, gave great recommendations and very friendly.

Osteria Barberini was right on our doorstep while staying in Rome, so we booked based on the TA reviews. We had the risotto with truffle & the steak. Both were very good. Restaurant downstairs is a bit pokey, but the service was very good. We had one starter, two mains and a bottle of wine, and the bill was £64.... More

Staying at a nearby hotel me and my girlfriend chose this restaurant for a more relaxed evening. It was a perfect choice. This is a place that knows what it is, a nice place with excellent food at reasonable prices, and doesnt try to be anything else. We didnt have a reservation, which I suggest you get, but they managed... More
