This is a great place for a quick lunch after walking through the Gothic Quarter and La Rambla. Staff are very efficient. Lunch was fresh and fast. They have a great 2 course set-meal deal with a drink for less than 10 euros. They also understand Vegans too. The person at cash, when I told her that I was vegan,... More

The food was excellent, the lasagne was very tasty, however the pasta was a little dry in the other dishes which you make your self. Very nice staff, especially the man who was making our pasta who was dancing and singing! Overall a very tasty and cheap meal, I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone in the area who... More

Came here for an evening meal with my family. Beautiful small restaurant with great atmosphere and lovely staff and chef. Ordered carbonara with chicken and mozeralla and a meat lasagne. Meat lasagne was fresh, piping hot and very tasty however the carbonara was less so. The pasta was clearly not fresh and was very dry. Would recommend coming for lunch... More

We ate here twice, it is excellent and authentic and delicioso. I ate homemade ravioil with cheese sauce and husband ate tagliatelle with funghi. Great prices, great food, either for lunch or dinner. Wish we had a restaurant like this where we live. Staff are smashing too.

A nice little hidden gem in the gothic quarter of Barcelona, Pasta Bar is simple to use with an excellent choice of different pasta dishes. Labelled as the Subway of pasta dishes, the ordering is easy: choose a type of pasta, toppings and a sauce, and the cook will prepare your dish to order right in front of you (the... More

This place is one of our favorite places in Barcelona. The food is the best, with its homemade pasta and cheap prices. We got the pasta carbonara for about 7?, which we highly recommend! The only bad thing is that we are leaving tommorow, so we can't eat there anymore.

We just walked past this little gem when we decided we should really go in. We ordered 2 menu del Dia, for ~ 9€, which contained first course, second course and drink. For appetizer you could choose gazpacho or salad and for second you could choose the pasta you'd like and the sauce. They put Parmesan on every table so... More

This is a small 'fast food' restaurant where the pasta is freshly made just off Placa Reial. You select your choice of pasta and sauce at the counter and about 2 minutes it is served to you at your seat. The food was very quick but it was some top notch pasta. It's probably better for lunch than dinner but... More
