I knew the place already, I've been there 2 years ago. The pizza is not bad, is it quite close to Italian pizza like taste and presentation. The ingredients are different than Italy, ex. tomatoes, cheese or salami. Anyway, pizza is better here than in many other places in Barcelona, believe me, I'm a true Italian man.

It took 45 min to get our meals since we ordered. If the food would've been any good and we would've get an apology for the waiting, I would've rated it with 3 stars. But, on the contrary, the food was bad, really bad. We ordered pastas and one risotto e funghi. The pastas ware overcooked and the sauces were... More

Good pizza place, worth a look if you want something different. Venue is fine, not much atmosphere or character, courses are about 8-12€ for pizza and pasta, and slightly more for any grill (10% extra for the terrace). Pizza was huge and great dough, the toppings plentiful but fairly simple. Many options available. A basic but pleasant dinner option.

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel receptionist and was only a short walk away (from H10 Port Vell). We ate there twice during our stay and the service and food were excellent. On the first visit we tried the set menu at a very reasonable price and the three courses proved difficult to finish due to the quantity... More

A lovely restaurant which was very good value for money. The staff were friendly and the setting pleasant. This is not a particularly romantic or smart restaurant but the food and atmosphere was wonderful. There's lots of seafood options....plenty of new things to try. I chose the homemade spinach ravioli with clams which was absolutely sensational, one of the best... More

The service is good - literally as soon as we ordered - the main course came before the starter! The salad was brown, the pizza full of water and the pasta had a bit of sauce on one side and nothing on the other, really don't bother there are many better !

We liked the food and service at a reasonable price. Because we sat outdoors and it was a very humid evening, would have like a fan or the option to eat in air-conditioned indoors. In any event, would recommend the place for a meal.

Good service. Good food. Great value! We came late on Sunday and were seated inside. We ordered pizzas for the kids and steaks for the grown ups. The service was quick. The pizzas, baked in a brick oven, came within 5 minutes. The steaks were great.

Neighborhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
