“Cheap and good, homemade pasta”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

This is the best pasta bar I've tried in Barcelona. They know how to cook pasta, and their sauces are good (I very much enjoy their pesto). As for the prices, unbeatable!... Tagliatelle with pesto will cost you 4.90€... and the portions are very generous! A shame they don't do their red pesto anymore. Note that it may be a little hard to find a spot to seat down at peak times, and they do not take reservations.

“Amazing find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Great place for a quick eat but we ended up staying over a bottle of wine for a few hours. Friendly staff, delicious food, great value for money and good location for access from Las Ramblas. The restaurant had a really good atmosphere with a wide variety of people eating- young people, couples, families. Would definitely recommend.

“Surprise package”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013 via mobile

We just found this pasta bar during one of our wander around the gothic center, while coming back from picasso museum. Wow, brilliant taste, tiny but somehow perfect size furniture, nice atmosphere and my kids loved it. If you are a pasta lover, must visit while in barcelona.

“Cheap and healthy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013 via mobile

Perfect location, perfect service "with smile" and good food for reasonable price. For 10 euro u can get salad and pasta (wide choise) plus something to drink. The best value for money option in Barcelona.
