A rare pearl among our careful selection of the best addresses right now

A Largo Argentina, in una delle zone centrali della capitale più frequentata dai turisti per la vicinanza con molti siti di interesse storico e archeologico, si sta registrando ultimamente una inversione di tendenza in ambito ristorativo: alle insegne che propongono una cucina “semplice” si affiancano nuovi indirizzi che puntano sulla qualità. Uno di questi è il Barbieri 23, locale piccolo ma accogliente, il cui design è stato curato nel dettaglio ottimizzando gli spazi richiamando atmosfere metropolitane grazie all’utilizzo di determinati materiali. Colori scuri, un bancone con sgabelli, i vini e le eccellenti materie prime in mostra.

La particolarità della proposta gastronomica del Barbieri 23 è la sua cucina “rigenerativa”: non essendo presente la cappa non si può ricorrere all’utilizzo di gas, fuoco e piastre ad induzione. Lo chef Giorgio Baldari ha quindi puntata sulla ricerca di grandi materie prime e ha messo a punto alcune ricette che gli consentono di proporre piatti caldi che si contraddistinguono per l’eccellente sapore, come nel caso dello “Stinco di Agnello”.

    The selection platters are very interesting and innovative, however, instead of mixing different ingredients they focus on one food group (example: salmon or cured beef) which becomes a bit repetitive. The wine by the glass portion was very small. The ravioli alla ricotta which I ordered was also very bland.

    Lovely food, great flavours. The head chef came out and explained the menu in detail and was very tentative. Would highly recommend this little gem

    Miserable, rainy Monday evening in the middle of November so would be a shame to mark down regards atmosphere as not really their fault. Food was very interesting. Particularly loved the vegetable garden platter selection and the truffle ravioli with ragout. Recommended. Bit pricey but excellent value with the Fork discount.

    Wonderful food and lovely service by the owner, who was knowledgable and welcoming (and also spoke English fluently). All of the dishes were generous, interesting and of great quality, especially the raw fish appetizers and spinach salad. Do yourself a favor and pick a dish that comes with the amazing mustard/truffle sauce. We will definitely come back when in Rome.

    Barbieri 23 is an interesting restaurant and not like one you are likely to find elsewhere in Rome or anywhere else in Italy, possibly. The food is imaginative and really good. The service was attentive and helpful. English is spoken readily, which might be my only complaint -- I love speaking Italian. On the other hand, the menu is different enough that it was helpful having it explained in my native tongue. In addition to all this, the prices are extremely reasonable. Prepare to be thrilled! Our only regret is that we couldn't order more of the interesting things that were available, because we were full!

    We have now been to this restaurant three times and it keeps getting amazing us. George (the owner and chef) is terrific and wonderful at explaining the dishes and what wine to select. We are somewhat foodies and ask lots of questions and he is very patient with us. The tuna dis was excellent as was the lasagne and lamb. We also had two of the “starters” which were excellent. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

    An absolutely wonderful meal! My husband and I had two of the cicchetti . The first were anchovy’s (three different kinds) - one on toast with butter, the second over panzarella and the third mixed with stracciatell. The second dish was the variety of vegetables mixed with olive oil. Both dishes were perfect and enough food with our excellent wine.

    We loved the selection plate of raw fishes! Great approach to combine different tastes. The minimalistic interior, service and the overall atmosphere was great too! We were not that excited about deserts though (tried the chocolate cake and ricotta cake with cherries), they were ok. Overall would recommend for a stylish dinning experience!
