Welcome to Barberio Osteria, where the essence of Italian dining is celebrated through our dedication to authenticity, quality, and tradition. For those who have ever wondered what goes into creating the perfect Italian dining experience, we're pulling back the curtain to give you a behind-the-scenes look at our culinary haven in the heart of San Francisco.

Authentic ingredients sourced directly from Italy at Barberio Osteria

The Heartbeat of Italy in San Francisco

At Barberio Osteria, our journey begins with the careful selection of ingredients–fresh, vibrant, and bursting with flavor. We believe that the soul of Italian cuisine lies in sun-kissed tomatoes from Dirty Girl, primal cuts from Petaluma-based Rossotti Ranch and important, imported staples like parmigiano-reggiano and prosciutto di san daniele…Each component is selected with the aim of bringing the true taste of Italy to your table.

Culinary Craftsmanship Meets Passion

Step into our kitchen, and you'll find Chef Nick Kelly the grandson of Italian and Irish fishing families that met here in San Francisco. A skilled artisan and third-generation chef, he blends time-honored techniques with innovative twists to create dishes that pay homage to Italy's rich culinary landscape and showcase the agricultural bounty of Northern California. From fresh pasta carefully shaped into a variety of unique shapes to the long-simmered stocks & sauces, every step is a testament to our passion for Italian cooking.

The Art of Wine Selection

Wine is not just an accompaniment to Italian food; it's an integral part of the dining experience. Harmony between food and wine is what elevates your meal from simply eating to an experience worth savoring. At Barberio Osteria, our wine selection process is as meticulous as our cooking. We work closely with a dozen small importers & distributors who feature wineries across Italy, choosing wines that not only stand splendidly on their own but also complement our dishes perfectly. Our focus is on small, family-owned wineries with generational ties to their vineyards and land. These people have, over time, forged a deep understanding of their terroir and we believe it shows in the final product.
