We were in Rome in March 2014 for the Marathon. I was looking for local restaurants with real Italian food, you know, not the kind you get at tourist traps :) So I got a recommendation for Osteria Barberini it is a very nice restaurant with excellent service that makes you feel at home from the first moment. And then... More

We were absolutely taken by the service and food at Osteria Barberini! Love this place! You will need to make a reservation but its well worth every not-terribly-expensive penny (Euro!) Lugio was our waiter and he was fantastic. I even made my husband walk back a couple blocks to the hotel to get some cash so we could tip. I... More

Excellent food in a lively and friendly restaurant. The chef comes to introduce himself, a nice touch. It is essential to book here. We tried one night but had to book for 2 nights later and the night we were there (a Monday) they must have turned away a whole restaurant full.

Thank you, Trip Advisor, for the well deserved high marks for this establishment. We truly enjoyed this impeccable dining experience.... The service was a delight, the food exceptional, the atmosphere was enchanting. Make a reservation ahead of time. Many who desired to eat here were turned away as the tables were all reserved. I could not speak highly enough of... More

Went here for dinner. Service was good. Food was excellent. Cost €62 for two people. Wine was also nice. Just off via veneto but much better than a lot of the places around there. Friendly chef and owner. Will go again.

They just managed to squeeze us in and turned away lots of other groups later on. The most beautiful white truffle tagliatelle. It was the most delicious pasta I have ever eaten! Very friendly chef who came round and chatted. Worth returning to Rome just for this restaurant!

Truffles are a specialty here. We had a black truffle on grilled bread appetizer that the kids loved ... a fine introduction to truffles for them! I had the white truffled sea bream which was outstanding. My wife had a grilled sea bass-- a whole fresh fish. The kids ordered pasta which was excellent. The prices were surprisingly reasonable for... More

The white truffle risotto here really blew me away. The staff was helpful with menu suggestions and the wine selection was good and reasonably priced.

Not sure what I loved best. The food, the service or the location. The slight uphill walk on a tiny Roman cobbled stone road off of Palazzo Barberini, led us to this small restaurant during lunch. There was actually a group of business men outside waiting for their reservations. The smell of truffles was pouring out into the street but... More
