Osteria restaurant at the Barbican

Osteria is a modern Italian restaurant, with spectacular views of the Barbican Lakeside and fountains.

Osteria's menu focuses on simple and generous Italian cooking, with an emphasis on produce and seasonality, paired with reinvented Italian cocktails and regional wines. 

Our fixed-price menu is available at £19 for one course, £25 for two courses or £29 for three courses. Available for parties of up to 8 people, it has been specially created to offer the widest choice and ensure prompt service, so you can enjoy a relaxing pre-performance meal.

The cocktail list showcases Italian classics including Negronis and Bellinis, as well as an exciting array of Italian sparkling wines in our new Negroni Bar. The wine list celebrates regions such as Franciacorta, Chianti and Valpolicella as well as fresh young wines from Puglia and Sicily.

Located on the second floor, the restaurant offers diners stunning views of the Barbican's estate.

Osteria will be closing from 19 September 2022 for a refresh. We look forward to welcoming you back in early October. 

Please note: our chefs cook with fresh seasonal ingredients. This means some of our dishes may change from the sample menus shown here.

Please note we only accept card payments.
