I cannot complain about the politeness of the servers. Obviously a tourist, I was treated friendly and quickly. The "Chef" pizza was how I like it: thin crust, little tomato sauce and cheese, fresh ingredients. As a nice touch, the waiter will offer to slice the pizza for you. The tiramisu was good, too. The restaurant seems to be is... More

We had a lovely light dinner here: pasta with a cheese sauce and the "Pizza Iberica": Iberian ham, tomatoes, and shaved Parmesan (no tomato sauce) on a crust so crispy it shattered when I tried to cut it. Very unusual and very tasty. Raco is in a nice shaded setting on Rambla Catalunya, a few blocks away from the tourist... More

I had a Queen Margherita pizza, it was very tasty and I finished it all, however it wasn't hot on arrival and it was obvious it had been out of the oven some time before it was served. Another friend of mine ordered spaghetti and it was seriously overcooked and looked as dry as a bone. I felt a bit... More

Entered the restaurant "early" after 9 PM and it was almost empty, but that is not unusual for Barcelona. Wine list had a shape of a real wine bottle. Wine was good and cost only 12 euros per bottle. The pizza bottoms were thin, crisp, not burned, just perfect. And the fillings were of similar taste and quality. Service was... More

My boyfriend and I had dinner here and after the very first bite we decided to come back, preferably the next day! We ordered mushroom ravioli and steak, and the ravioli was the best I ever tasted! My boyfriend his steak was exactly how he wanted it (medium). We ordered small portions and immediately after tasting regretted that decision, the... More
