Like at home, but better!!

This is undoubtedly the best Italian Ristorante I know out of Italy. Food is superb, combining tradition with creativity. Pizzas are a new discovery every time I go there. Incredible care for both ingredients and preparation. And a cozy, homely atmosphere. If you haven't been there, go... and... read more

We were 18 celebrating my birthday. The food is good and the staff attentive, even though at some point they looked overwhelmed with requests, although the restaurant was not even full. They could not accommodate all together and they set two tables of 9 pax each. I wouldn't say it was difficult to do it in one table, but they... More

I come regularly to this place for the menu at lunch, and have to admit the pizzas are very good. The people is also extremely nice. Everytime I can I come backbto this place. Good choice.

When away in Barcelona I decided I really wanted some Italian food (I know, a disgrace) so using the Trip Advisor app I found this restaurant. It was tucked away in the back streets and had a gorgeous, little family feel. I had carbonara and can honestly say it was the best I've ever had. I would definitely go back... More

We live around here but had not tried this place yet. Located not far from your beach in an otherwise unremarkable area, although there are lovely nearby spots in the poblenou. Also unremarkable decor. Service was prompt and very friendly. We just tried pizzas. Prices are Barcelona - like, that is, much higher than in Italy. They don't have a... More

Service was very good as well as food, we had seafood spagetti, carbonara and lasagne, all good as well as some desserts. Our waiter spoke good english and was very attentive. The only gripe was their petty table cover charge (they brought literally 3 half slices of bread) and charge for not ordered aperitif they brought to the table at... More

Oh my god, this restaurant had the most amazing staff we've ever met! They were ALL so friendly and joked a lot with us. A few extra desserts and apetizers were not a bad thing either ;) We both ate pasta and it was really good. Prices were reasonable and I must repeat myself - the service rocked! Thank you!... More

My Fiance and I found this place on trip advisor. We walked by 2 or 3 other pizza places on the way here and were glad we didn't stop somewhere else. They asked if we wanted to sit outside and although there were no open tables outside they promptly set up a new one for us. The Goat cheese, pine... More

Very good authentic Italian food at good value. We have come here many times and will continue to do so. Our kids love it too, in fact its probably their favourite place. Especially good is the Carbonara (for me the benchmark of any Italian restaurant) and the Burrata. Pizzas are great too.

Staying in Poblenou

Neighborhood Profile
Poblenou
The futuristic Agbar Tower stands out from Barcelona's skyline in Poblenou. It is no coincidence then that this area of town is the newly crowned technological park of the city, its own mini Silicon Valley containing a tech incubator (Barcelona Activa) as well as a host of local and international high tech companies. To accommodate the onrush of new residents and workers, the area of Poblenou has seen a surge of activity in new high-rise residential buildings and two top-notch shopping centers catering to everyone's need. The ambiance of this area is calmer than the city center and the beautifully relaxing Bogatell Beach, popular with locals, is just a handful of blocks away.
