The place is calm and quiet. The food and the staff is what makes this place special. The only problem is that the wifi doesn't work down stairs. It is better to make a reservation

I decided to host a business dinner at this restaurant as it was pretty highly recommended on Google maps and close to my hotel, but the food unfortunately wasn't as good as I had hoped. It was decent, but not "wow" and the dining space was very cramped and hard to get up and out from the table if one... More

My second try walking in here was my luck! I had a great lunch here! Lovely porcini, black truffle pasta! With a nice glass of wine! It is a lovely restaurant with tables spread over 2 floors, which makes it nice and cosy! Would certainly recommend eating here!

Reservations are a must! You could get lucky and get squeezed in between an early and late reso. Service: from start to finish the service was impeccable, especially from our waiter. Starters: We had the truffle bruschetta and wild Buffalo cheese. The bruschetta was so good that we ordered another one before our mains. Dinner:  We had the black truffle... More

Lovely meal with my husband for my Birthday before we headed off to the Opera. Amazing truffle-based meal. We both had lovely starters but the mains were incredible. Risotto with black truffle and lamb that literally fell off the bone! Attentive and friendly service. Such a lovely atmosphere and if we hadn't had been rushing off to get to the... More

We've been travelling Italy for the last 4 weeks in Italy and this is the worst service we have had yet. They ignored us the whole time. My risotto was 23€ and it was terrible, steak 21€ was supposed to be medium but was rare. No breads given at all. We didn't say anything about our awful meal as the... More

Again we do not think we are the restaurant visited by customers. Our service is highly valued by our customers .Probabily the customers are confused with similarly named restaurant. We ask to TripAdvisor inspectors to check the veracity of the review. More

Had a fabulous dinner last night and booked again! Wonderful service. Small restaurant. Definitely want a reservation. So charming and the food was fantastic. Get the cheesecake for dessert!

Mid range towards high prices but the dishes were authentic and tasty, I went with a local who confirmed this. I could have gotten a couple of more ravioli in my dish, but I'd feel good to suggest this restaurant to anyone.

Osteria Barberini was recommended to my wife and I by her sister who had been here the last time she was in Rome. It certainly didn't disappoint. It's a very small place so reserving is necessary. Once we arrived we were well looked after by the sommelier, Lilly. She recommended a beautiful red wine that went perfectly with our food.... More
