Best restaurant in Rome so far. Very traditional Italian restaurant. If you are a truffle fan, this is the place. Do not forget to book a table in advance!

It took a couple of tries before we could get a reservation to eat here but once we did it was Sublime. In fact it was so good that we made a reservation for the following week when we would return to to Rome. The bruschetta with truffles was incredible , so was the pasta with white truffles and the...

Called into here by chance and were very lucky indeed. We wanted to try some classics and some specials from the menu and were not disappointed. Fantastic food, the best we've had in Rome. They have sitting at 7 and 9, so try to book.

Not a tourist trap, though tourists clearly are reading TripAdvisor and finding their way here. Our best meal in Rome - but reservations are definitely a must.

We originally had reservations for 6:30pm dinner, but had to change them to 7:30. The staff changed it w/o a problem. The prices and the food is good, but not the best we had in Rome. My pasta and tuna were both delicious, but our friend's steak was ok. The place is very small, so reserve in advance.

We was staying around the corner to this restaurant so it was ideal but i think i would come here from the other side of rome, great food, great service and not very expensive.

We had to make reservations a day in advance to get a table. There are not too many good places in this area but this is one of them. My wife had a brilliant Risotto after some grilled vegetables. My son´s steak was very good and the same can be said of my daughter´s lasagne. My first dish was three... More

Arrived pretty late with no reservation on our final night. Luckily someone had cancelled. Small intimate restaurant with very friendly knowledgeable staff. Chef came up a few times and this put a gentle happy face to the food. The food portions were just right and emphasis was on taste rather than quantity. Overall this restaurant which is slightly off a... More

My wife and I went to Osteria Barberini because it was near our hotel on our first night in Rome. Fortunately, I reserved in advance. When we arrived for our 9:15 pm reservation, people were being turned away. The place seats 36 people on two levels - very cozy. But the food and wine - excellent all around. Black and... More
