Food was great, staff polite and helpful. The Truffle menu is definitely worth a try, myself and my partner loved it. Make sure you make a reservation as the restaurant gets really busy.

This was my first visit to Osteria Barberini. It was recommended to me by a Roman so I knew we were in for a treat. The food and service was excellent as was the choice on the menu. The proprietor sits at a little table near the door giving advice and recommendations whilst you choose. I had an excellent risotto... More

On the advice of The Hotel Barocca, we attempted to dine here, twice, until we got wise and booked for two nights in advance, even then we had to dine early to get in. It was worth the wait. Great food, great service and very memorable. I highly recommend this dining experience, but book in advance and save the disappointment... More

The staff at at the restaurant was excellent. They were very nice. The food was the best food we had on the whole trip. They have many truffle dishes that are great and the pizza is good. You must make a reservation about a week in advance because it is very busy.

Im sorry for the error. It seldom happened to us this kind of error but unfortunately, it happened... We would be pleased if you had come back and showed us this error. We will be more careful next time. Thank you so much for dropping by in our restaurant. We hope to have you back again in the future. More

The best restaurant we have eaten at. The flavour of the food was wonderful and for the quality of ingredients very resonable on the wallet, well worth a try.

We were greeted and taken downstairs to our table by a very friendly staff member. Throughout the evening we were treated like family. The chef came to our table and introduced himself. The waiter made excellent suggestions for food and wine. Everything was delicious!

Very busy place, and as we had not reserved we had to wait for a while. Proved to be one of the most delicious food we tasted in Rome. Tried almost everything the two nights we had dinner there. The service was friendly and very helpfull. I highly recomend to visit the restaurant, but be sure to make a reservation... More

We didn't have a reservation so we showed up when the doors opened for dinner and were fortunate enough that the owner told them to seat us. Within five minutes of sitting down we understood why. The phone was ringing off the hook and several walk ins were turned away. The next two days had no availability before 21:30. At... More
