Cooking for family and friends has always been a way of combining our passion for food and my love of being amongst people. We find cooking relaxing - We love experimenting with new flavours and blending these flavours that we've discovered through the years during our many travels with traditional Italian cuisine. Adding that particular touch to classic dishes is our speciality! It's not only the food itself that fascinates us, we love presenting it creatively, from the perfect glass to the perfect centrepiece. Our dinners take place immersed in the old Rome atmosphere of Barbara's 18th century home, located just around the corner from the Spanish Steps. We can't wait to introduce you to our world and share a wonderful dining experience with you!

What a lovely and delicious meal prepared by our very friendly and gracious host Barbara. There was plenty of food w/second helpings. The evening flew by it was nice to meet other travelers. Please consider dinner at Barbara’s if u looking for an authentic Italian meal in a relaxed atmosphere.
What a wonderful evening we had with Barbara and Ida! It was the first time we had experienced an evening like this but we are so very glad we did. Barbara and Ida are the perfect hosts - they are so naturally friendly and very sociable and it was an honour to be invited into their home and share their beautiful food. Rome is an amazing city and we had some wonderful experiences there, but we can honestly say this final meal with our new friends was the highlight and is something we will remember for a very long time.
We looked for something that is not a fancy restaurant, to experience real life people with family easter food and we got exactly this! Barbara, her husband & kids (and Jennifer, the other guest) made us feel we popped in to friendes/family home to an informal dinner, it's just a wonder how 5 people from Israel, 4 people from Rome and one splendid lady from US, that are basically strangers only need 10 minutes, good food & alcohol to feel like they know eachother for years. The food itself was emasing, tasty and in top level from the Spritz cocktail at the begining, the Pizza pie, the tender lamb with artichoke, the easter ricota pie, and the superve Tiramiso, However, I think that the star of the dinner (and my instagram..) was the pesto lasagna, something like 10 home made pasta sheets with home made pesto between an parmezan that just exploded in your mouth with flavored, damn good! Thanks Barbara and all your family for a great evening to remember.
