Osteria Barberini

Taking advantage of its location — right in Piazza del Tritone — Osteria Barberini is a family-owned eatery that offers Italian fine cuisine. Jazz and swing music in the background, wooden tables, and a simple interior make the dining comfortable and a favourite with locals and tourists alike. Refined dishes with black and white truffles made by Chef Gabriel are the real stars here but don't miss out on the other innovative yet traditional plates. The menu also includes typical Roman dishes, such as ravioli, carbonara, risotto, and seafood specialities.


Rome's restaurants cater to all tastes. There are American steakhouses, Lebanese meze restaurants, Vietnamese eateries, and several haute cuisine establishments celebrated in the Michelin Guide. But when in Rome, do as the Romans do and choose the less extravagant restaurants and trattorias for a memorable and authentic dining experience. The Italian word for dinner, "cena", comes from the Latin convivium, which means "live together". Eating is a social get-together which consists of at least three courses — often even at lunchtime. The Romans do not eat dinner until nine in the evening. Rome is known for its Carbonara (made with egg, guanciale, hard cheese, and black pepper) and Amatriciana (made with guanciale, pecorino Romano and tomatoes).
