BEST night in Rome!! Coming up the stairs to her apartment you hear music and immediately feel warm and happy! Barbara and her co-hosts were welcoming from the moment we walked in! The wine flowed all night and was delicious. ALL the food was amazing but especially the lasagna! Dessert was delicious and was accompanied by limoncello. Barbara is a beautiful person with a very vibrant spirit and it comes out in her cooking and her hospitality. Definitely would recommend this for visitors to Rome. We stopped by again the next night as were were in the area and she poured us wine and hardly let us leave! Truly and wonderful night. Thank you Barbara and company!

Barbara was the most fabulous host. Her food was exceptional and she served very interesting wines. Her passion and enthusiasm were contagious and everyone had an incredible time. I can't imagine a more genuine Roman experience than to share an evening with someone who loves Rome so much and has such a lust for life and sharing herself with her guests. It was more than a meal. It was an experience. We made a friend in Barbara and her family. They were simply the most gracious hosts we could wish for. We also ate at La Pergola (3 star Michelin) during our trip but can say that our experience with Barbara was more memorable. We can't thank her enough and would love to have her visit us in San Francisco and bring her passion for Roman cuisine to the foodies in the Bay Area.

We had a perfectly wonderful time at Barbara and Fredrica's home. It was magic….we arrived to an open door, laughter and the clinking of glasses and conversation inside and walked into Barbara's beautiful, truly charming home where the tables were set with china in wonderful patterns, candles and flowers on the tables, wine being poured. There were maybe 20 people from all of the world… Italy.the U.S., Israel, central Mexico as if the world had come together for a night for convivial connections of friendship. The food was simply wonderful and beautiful too….at one point everyone broke into song and then began dancing as well. It is surely the highlight of our trip to Rome. Barbara was the ultimate hostess welcoming us as if we were old friends and would be welcome to return anytime. The guest from Israel had indeed been to dinner at Barbara's with his parents in the past and was back to enjoy it all again. It was an ambrosial experience that left us with smiles on our faces and warmth in our hearts!

Dinner with Barbara was a highlight to our 10 day adventure to Italy. The food was delicious and plentiful but it was the atmosphere and overall kindness by the hostess and her staff that made the night spectacular! Meeting different people from around the world and dining in such a personal intimate setting was a wonderful experience. If you are traveling to Rome, this is a "must do"! Thank you to Barbara xoxo

The great thing about doing "Eatwith" at Barbara's is that besides the excellent food, you also make a new friend. The evening at Barbara's started in a shy and polite atmosphere, but quickly transformed into a relaxed and friendly dinner, and ended around 3am with everybody stuffed, drunk and VERY happy; It is all based on Barbara's magnetic personality. AND - it did not stop there; the next day, Barbara invited us join her and her son and friend to a lovely day on the countryside at a place called Zagarolo, there we met her friends Eddy and Jessica. This great couple lives in a stunning house, with a huge garden and a lovely patio. After a small tour through the garden, where we tasted the vegetables and fruit directly from Mother Nature, we sat down and had the most amazing 8-course traditional launch, where the wine did not stop flowing and the food did not stop to amaze us! After the food we were treated to Eddy's guitar playing technics, and after another tasting tour in the garden, we returned home with our bellies and our hearts filled with joy, and two more wonderful friends. To conclude- if you are in Rome, BOOK IT! And if you are lucky enough to have Barbara invite you to fun day with her, do not think twice! With great love, Lior & Itai.

Being an Italian American, I know what good family cooking is and a welcome and loving atmosphere was a way of life at my grandparents house. So when my husband suggested this dining experience for our family, (there were 12 of us) while traveling through Rome on our way to a Mediterranean cruise, I thought why not. I thought I knew what to expect. It was the highlight of our entire trip!!! Barbara is an exceptional and humble cook while effortlessly making you feel like an old friend. Her cooking cannot be compared to anything I have ever had and being someone that enjoys fine dining, that says a lot. Not since the passing of my Sicilian grandmother, have I tasted the pure joy and love that went into everything we ate. We had a least 5 courses, all freshly prepared and homemade pastas, the best I have ever had. My expectations were exceeded beyond what I thought possible. She manages to do it all while making you feel welcome in her home as she introduces you to others that have joined You in the dining experience. By the end of the night everyone feels like family celebrating a holiday. The food and wine never stops and the love and laughs are equally abundant. My eight year old granddaughter put it best when she asked if we could "cut our cruise short so that we could go back and have dinner with Barbara again." I have been to Rome several times now and thought I have been enough and seen it all. It is for this dining experience alone that I will return to Rome...to Barbara's house

When you first walk up to the apartment, you get a knot in your stomach. Did you make the right choice? What am I getting myself into? But the moment that you walk through Barbara's door, you feel like you're walking into the home of your closest friend. Barbara created an atmosphere that is 100% her own and very relatable. There is not a set experience that is written in stone. You create the experience yourself and she exceeds all of your expectations. Great food, excellent company, and new friends. If you want an authentic Italian experience, Barbara is a must!

Everything about our night spent here was amazing. The food, the people, the atmosphere...it all made for one of the greatest nights of my life. Barbara welcomed us into our her home and truly made us feel like her close personal friends! She invited two of her friends to join us and it surely added to the night. Oh and her cooking? Some of the best food ive ever had. Definitely high on my list of recommendations.

I cannot say enough about Barbara's hospitality...her energy and passion for what she does is contagious!

We loved our meal at Barbara's! She was so generous and fun. The gnocchi was like little fluffy pillows. When I next go back to Rome, I'll definitely go back to see her.

Dinner with Barbara in the Trastevere neighborhood of Rome was a real kick. It was a totally “international affair,” as the guests were from Australia, UK and the USA in addition to the Italian hostess and her mom. The food was wonderful, and the wine flowed as freely as the conversation. My travel friend and I had no idea what to expect since we didn’t know if we’d be dining with Barbara alone or whether the table would be full. Dining with such a diverse crowd was very fun, and Barbara’s amazing food and laid-back personality made the whole thing work. I’d do this again in a heartbeat on another trip to Rome….
