“Good atmosphere. Good food. Reasonable price, especially menu of the day”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2012

I went with several friends for dinner at Murivecchi. There was a moderate amount of people that created a good atmosphere and the tables were not cramped like many places in Barcelona. The food and service were good...not spectacular, but nothing bad to say either. The service was good. They offer a very flexible menu of the day that allowed us to share the starters and still each choose from several options for the main course. It was a good value.

“Nice spot, mediocre pizza”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2011

This Italian restaurant, at the end of Carrer de la Princesa, near Parc de la Ciutadella, seems rather popular with locals and tourists alike. The service was courteous (albeit a bit slow) and the atmosphere was friendly. The food, however, was disappointing. Murivecchi's pizza was mediocre: The tomato sauce was too runny which made the pizza rather doughy and unapetizing. It was not a terrible meal, but not worth it a second visit.

“Lunch menu is excellent value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2011

I would probably never go here for dinner, but their weekday lunch menu is under €15, and you get a big salad and a whole pizza of your choice, dessert and wine. Their pizza dough is deliciously gooey, and the pizzas are big enough that you can save half as leftovers for later. Excellent value. There are only 3 tables outdoors so if the weather is good, make lunch reservations or arrive early to snag one of them (at around 1pm).

“A mediocre imitation”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2010

I was intrigued to eat in this resraurant that had such a good reputation on tripadvisor... And to say the truth i was pretty disapointed.... The decoration is not personal and does not reflect the italian spirit of food... The menu does not include tav so at the end u end up with a higher bill and more surprising when u receive the bill there is an extra fee of one euro per person i don't mind paying it but since the food and the service was not extraodinary i don t see the point... The food was ok with a minor o... This restaurant is just a mediocre imitation of the bella napoli restaurant in barcelona where the food is amazing the portions generous and the staff icredibly great... Definetly not recomending this restaurant which name i don t even want to remember

“Excellent italian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2010

This restaurant is amazing!
If this family-run restaurant was just a few hundred meters further west in the thick of the trendy El Born neighborhood, you would probably never get a table. The un-alarming decor doesn't do it any favors either, but the food is excellent and good value for the money. There is a wood-fired oven for fans of real Neapolitan pizza, and the pasta dishes are no less delectable: tagliatelle al funghi porcini, spaghetti vongole, and linguini al pesto are just a sample. Add to this a list of antipasti, risotti, and carpacci; daily specials; and a sinful tiramisu -- and you have some of the best Italian cuisine this side of Rome and some traditional napolitan food.
I recommend as the best italian restaurant in Barcelona.
Ciro the owner of the restaurant, he´s also an amazing host!!!
:-D
