Italian Afternoon Tea

Italian Afternoon Tea at Osteria

Enjoy an Italian–themed Afternoon Tea at the Barbican with spectacular views of the Lakeside and live piano music.

The Osteria team have re–imagined the quintessential afternoon tea with Italian elements and live music. Experience a taste of Italy across three tiers of cakes and savoury treats. The menu features a delicious selection of authentic Italian breads with traditional toppings, as well as homemade flavoursome scones filled with an Italian twist. Finish with an indulgent trio of classic Italian desserts. We also offer a full vegan menu, alongside our regular menu.

Italian Afternoon tea is served with a pot of tea or coffee. For that little extra, choose from a selection of wines, Champagne and Bottega Prosecco from our regular wine list.
