5 Stars not just the food - which was very good - but the whole experience. Being able to enjoy such a high quality meal at a great price in a beautiful part of Rome (where the norm is finding tourist traps) it really was great. The food is very good, the restaurant is well presented, the owner is a... More

On our second night in Rome we decided to try Osteria Barberini. We didn't have a reservation and we had read the reviews saying how hard it was to get in without a reservation, so we decided to arrive a few minutes before opening time (6:30 p.m.) in hopes of getting in sometime during the evening. We were lucky enough... More

During our stay in Rome we ate here on our first night and our last night. The first night we only had entrees - mainly due to being jet lagged. My son had the beef in a wine sauce, I had the lamb with roast potatoes, and wife had the pasta with mushrooms and truffles. All were excellent. We just... More

Need to book, we managed on a cancellation. Veal was sublime, service was charismatic, bill was not extortionate. Brilliant, heartily recommend.

Went here on the recommendation of Trip Advisor and were not disappointed! It's a small place on a small street off the main road, we felt like we were in on a secret heading up there. We arrived without a reservation and were lucky to be given a table as it was quite late, but we were told by other... More

This restaurant was recommended for it's truffles. We went twice! The food was well prepared. Fresh pasta with sauces of truffles. Good service by pleasant waitstaff and the owner and his son were quite welcoming. If you like TRUFFLES don't miss this gem just near the America Embassy in Rome off the via Veneto.
