The mix ravioli with sage butter was a perfection. The tomato basil tagliatelle was so tasty. .. The atmosphere is good but not exquisite.

Great find, close to the cathedral and our hotel. It was popular too – we arrived 5 minutes after they were open and there were already customers seated, with more following us. We had delicious pizza, gnocchi and tiramisu, and were looked after by very efficient waiters.

We searched for this restaurant for half an hour and were so pleased when we finally found it. The place was pretty vacant when we entered and the boss wanted us to sit in isolated seats (close to the back of the restaurant) because we were only two people and all the tables up front, in the nicer area, were...

Great variety on the menu and excellent authentic italian food, lovely pasta, salads and even chicken which is unusual in Italians. Really loved this spot and was just 100m from our hotel regencia colon.

We've been eating Tapas for the past week and we thought we might just try another style restaurant while here in Barcelona. We stumble on to this little gem, while out hunting in the neighbourhood of our hotel, Grand Hotel, Central. We were greeted with enthusiasms by a young man name Frederico who was to be our waiter. His English... More

We had a very good meal at la locanda. There were 8 of us in the group and they found us a nice table by the window and the service throughout the meal was very attentive. Food was especially good and we planned to go back before we left to come home but the selection of different restaurants proved too... More

My husband and I and our two teenage children, have been in Spain for 2 weeks -- 1 week in Malaga and 1 week in Barcelona. I love Spanish food, but really missed a nice home cooked Italian meal. We finally found one here at La Laconda. We read the reviews on Trip advisor and google mapped it from our... More

We visited in this restaurant twice during our stay in BCN. It is no bells and whistles but rather simply very good italian food. Pizzas are great, so was the steak. We enjoyed as well as our 2 kids :-)

This small Italian restaurant is just off Via Laietana, near the Cathedral. The staff were friendly, attentive and helpful. Portion sizes were good and the usual Italian fare was offered, with a wine list to match (the house red was a Sangiovese). Not in the "night to remember" category by any means but perfectly acceptable. On the downside, the menu... More

I stumbled across this Italian gem quite by chance. In fact, the only parking I could find when I parked my scooter to visit Catedral De Barcelona was right outside La Laconda. When I returned after the visit, it was time for dinner, and I thought it looked and smelled good, so I went inside. What a good choice! Fast,... More
