A sophisticated spot for cocktails, lunch or dinner near The Barbican, Osteria is a modern Italian restaurant in London brought to you by Searcys. Enjoy fabulous views of the Barbican’s iconic lakeside and fountains from inside the landmark Barbican Centre.

The Osteria menu features bold, ingredient-focused Italian dishes served in a bistronomy style, with a focus on Italian produce and seasonality. In the centre of the restaurant find an old meat slicer, and table dedicated to house-made charcuterie. From the Osteria menu, try starters like carpaccio of sea bream, clementine, fennel and chilli, white onion and bread soup, and buratta with artichokes, carrots and hazelnuts. Elsewhere on the menu, discover homemade pasta dishes such as rigatoni with Sicilian sausage, and ricotta gnudi with endive and apple balsamic dressing.

Signature mains include suckling pig with sage potatoes and slow-cooked beef polenta with roast onions, whilst classic desserts of polenta cake with orange marmalade, and zabaione complete the menu. From the Osteria bar come classic Italian wines and cocktails. Try a traditional negroni or bellini, or sample the wine list which includes an impressive array of bottles from throughout Italy.

    We had a wonderful lunch. The staff were welcoming and friendly and the service excellent. I ordered wild mushroom risotto and it was delicious. I would highly recommend Osteria and am like the king forward to my next visit. Great view over the Barbican too.

    Dissapointed. Food very salty, so salty that I wasn't able to finish the beef pasta. Service non existent - took a while to catch a waiter every time we wanted to order more drinks although the restaurant was almost empty. Set menu deal not worth the price plus very expensive drinks. The only plus was it was quiet and with a nice view. Will not be back.

    Nice dinner before the concert in the Barbican Hall. Attentive service and delicious sea bass. Unfortunately, sardines were over cooked!

    A pleasant dining room. Food overall was disappointing - two starters and two mains. All the food was rather bland.

  • ((((( 21 July 2018 by Owen from London

    Food and service were both excellent. Sadly I didn't get the name of the gentleman who served us, but he was attentive without being overly-so. I had the salmon, and my companions had the chicken and the asparagus pasta -- everyone enjoyed their food very much. I can't fault it on any level.

    Nice service, decent value. Starter read tomatoes, when reality was one slice of large tomato.
