Showcasing Italian cuisine from multi-award-winning chef Anthony Demetre, Osteria presents a regularly changing menu of seasonal, regional produce. Look out over Barbican’s iconic lakeside and fountains whilst sipping on classic Italian cocktails and new generation wines.
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.
Find Osteria London a short walk from both Barbican and Moorgate Tube stations.

It was excellent but I realised afterwards we missed out on our Barbican residents' discount. Are you still offering that?

Good and bad. Some food excellent, some tepid, interesting menu and good coffee and wine but room central heating poor (little electric heater nearby) and service slow (had to go and find menus, food orders and plate-clearing were very slow). Waiter sold us they were "very busy" at start of meal and that they were "short-staffed" at end. Credit card came with "optional" service added already and no time to query before show downstairs.
Might be worth a 2nd go some time?

Excellent table. Good service. Food poor.

Service was good, food was good quality though we thought it was slightly overpriced and vegetables had to be ordered separately. However, as a pre-theatre venue, maybe inevitable.

Lovely meal before theatre. Food well presented and delicious. Our waitress was top class and really made our dining experience enjoyable. We were not impressed by our reception and think the young lady needs a customer awareness course. Even when she dealt with payment there was no effort to ask if all was ok. Needs more customer empathy.

My husband and I were not impressed by the food here. The Slow roasted lamb was obviously cooked earlier and then when ordered warmed up however both mine and my husbands meat was very cold in the middle. My husband and I are not inclined to complain when our food is delivered badly because we don't like to make a scene and be the centre of attention. I thank you for this opportunity however to express our disappointment that despite such lovely surroundings and seemingly perfect atmosphere the food delivered was less than appetising. We appreciate that we had skipped courses to get to the main course but we would have been willing to wait that little bit longer for this meal to have been delivered hot. The dessert delivered a small reprieve but by this time we were not impressed.

Lovely location and comfortable dining environment. The food was lovely and the service was accommodating as we were going to see a play in an hour and half - so time was pressing.
It would be good to come back when we could take advantage of all the courses.

Liked the location - we had a table by the window, overlooking the lake. Good restaurant layout - we felt there was plenty of space. Service was attentive. We enjoyed our meal, good ingredients and well-prepared. If you are going to an event in the Barbican, I suggest you book a time at least two hours before the start (we arrived at 5pm for a 7.30 start) as the restaurant fills up very quickly shortly after that time.
