The food is based on black truffles and exeptional. A casual atmosphere with two floors, absolutely need reservation, better to sit outside terrace. Dishes were so exeptional but unfortunately the service was weak. I recommend; Focaccio Carnaroli Risotto with black truffle Tiramisu

Osteria Barberini is an excellent neighborhood restaurant located near Piazza Barberini. When travelling, I enjoy trying a variety of restaurants and don't typically go back to a single restaurant more than once. But, Osteria Barberini is one of the few places that I will make...an exception for. After enjoying dinner their on a previous trip, my wife and I enjoyed two wonderful meals there on our recent trip to Rome. Although the restaurant specializes in dishes prepared with truffles, they offer a wide variety of wonderful dishes at reasonable prices and the service provided by the wait staff is excellent. Osteria Barberini is a very small restaurant and it is popular; so, make your reservations in advance !More

This is our second visit to Osteria Barberini. We were here in 2019 and loved it. We just arrived in Rome and had dinner here. It was still excellent. I started with Eggplant Parmigana which was excellent. Hubby had the artichoke and loved it. We...shared the tenderloin that had a wonderful mustard and fresh green peppercorns sauce that was killer. Desert was perfect, cake, cream, pears and a drizzling of chocolate. We were talking to the family at the table beside us and they had the pear cake and the cheesecake that they raved about. We are thinking of stopping in for coffee and cheesecake in the next day or two.More

Specialists in truffle pasta but honestly the smell and the taste was not as intense nor interesting as we are used too. Perhaps we came with too much expectations. Stuff welcoming and polite. But food basic. The beef tartar wasn’t cut with the knife. It...was minced meat.More

Stop what you’re doing and book a table for this restaurant. We we’re lucky to grab a reservation the night before and it was absolutely fantastic. It is truffle heaven. I’m still thinking about the spaghetti with black truffles and porcini mushrooms. Everything on the...menu is perfection…especially the truffle dishes. Did I mention it is the BEST place to eat truffles in Rome? Book a reservation and experience TruffleMania for yourselves!More

Osteria Barberini is like heaven for truffle lovers. The risotto with white truffles was to die for, as were the suggested wine pairing. Book ahead; the restaurant is popular!

The food was amazing. We had the risotto with white truffles, the ravioli with black truffles, and steak. We were disappointed they ran out of tiramisu, but the cheesecake was amazing. The servers and staff were definitely not friendly. They were acting like they were...doing you a favor, but don’t be discouraged definitely still worth the trip. The best meal I had in Rome.More

I am glad that I was able to have the reservation at the very last minute. It’s hard to book this restaurant. Love the food here with truffle. I will definitely go again next time.

My wife and I come to Rome almost every year, in October, and we’ve always made sure to come to Osteria Barberini for the delicious truffle dishes they’re known for. But, this year, when we arrived, Angelo, Gabrielli, and Lilly were all gone and the...restaurant was being run by entirely different people. (We later heard that it had been sold during the past year, and was under entirely new management.) And there was quite a difference. The staff was not nearly as friendly as helpful as it was before, and the food, especially the truffle dishes, were now just average and well below the quality that we had gotten used to over the years. We don’t intend to come back!More

Maybe it was because it was our first night in Rome, but I don't think so... The meal was amazing, from the Chianti to the pasta to the steak to the focaccia bread. Our server even decorated our shared dessert plate. He was entertaining! Food...was amazing, nice intimate atmosphere. Highly recommendMore

One of the best meals in Italy! The truffle fettuccine and lasagna were out of this world. Not overpowering; so delectable. Pasta was perfectly fresh and cooked just right. I was neutral about truffle coming in, but now I totally get the hype. Absolutely done...right! The house wine was great also. I’d ship a case home if I could.More

If you like good pasta, and especially truffles, this restaurant was the most amazing restaurant! We are here from America and would come back at any time. The manager was very gentle and accommodating to anybody that attempted to come in and would try to...accommodate if able. We had reservations. Highly recommend reservationsMore

I am giving the lowest rating because this was highly recommended by our hotel and they are rude, tried to make a reservation and the manager (not even the owner), started screaming because our group consisted of 8. We tried to get 3 or 4...tables of 2 or 3 people and he didn't care to listen. We tried to reserve 3 consecutive days and he didn't care to book us in. He just told us to leave and like any Italian very bad mannered. Apparently he didn't learn anything after being locked down by so many misery related to covidMore

I had the Saku Di Tonne, a Glas of white wine, the tiramisù and an espresso. The food was ok, but during the whole time I was there, I did NOT get A SINGLE SMILE or a friendly word from any of the server or...the manager. The place was crowded, so it seems they do not have to make the slightest effort to make their guest feel welcome. I will definitely never return there and cannot recommend this place. Very disappointing.More

It's been a few years since we visited and this time was fantastic again! House red Wine, truffle brochetta filet with truffles and tuna steak was unbelievable! If in Rome find this gem, always make a reservation on any dinner in Rome, otherwise you will...do a lot of walking and maybe at 9:30 find a place to serve you. Of many restaurants we have tried this is our favorite!More
