Came here with my family looking for the Italian food I knew in the Capitol District over 40 years ago. Was not disappointed. Only two veal dishes, I seem to recall more variety at Fannies in Latham, but that closed a few years ago. The veal parmigiano was good and the portion was generous. Gambas all aji, steak chimichurri, and... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of eating here on July 16th after a convention we attended in this city. We were just blown away by this wonderful restaurant. Our server was Anne and she was just delightful. Her recommendations were spot on and we trusted her. We had Mejillones Salteados ,Zuppa di Pesce,Grilled Filet Mignon Rojos ....all dishes... More

Five of us went to celebrate a birthday. Each chose a different entrée. I had the veal Daniel . To say it was good is definitely an under statement. The veal was tender & cooked to perfection, however the sauce made the dish. The others enjoyed their meals as much as I did. Among their choices were chicken ala vodka,... More

I met a friend here for lunch on a Thursday afternoon. During our hour visit, there were only about 7 other people in the restaurant. The service was fine, but there really wasn't anything special about the food. I had a wrap which was very large, and my friend had paella which appeared to be reheated. Meh.

Barcelona is one of our "go to" restaurants when it comes to celebrating a birthday, anniversary, etc. The food is just delicious and the atmosphere warm and inviting. As another reviewer stated the menu is diverse with plenty of wine choices too. I had an amazing appetizer (a special the night we were there) that I have talked about numerous... More

Return visit to try the desserts as we were too full last time to enjoy one. My son's birthday, and his choice to return to the restaurant(no argument from me😊). Great service and very welcoming. Many dishes are more Italian(and fantastic ) than Spanish, but you can get some great Spanish dishes. The waitress brought my son his choice of... More

The atmosphere at this restaurant from the minute you walk in the door is pleasant. We were greeted immediately, seated at our table, and our attentive waiter arrived soon after. He knew what he was doing - the water glasses were refilled promptly, plates removed, very efficient. We all wound up having paella, chicken and seafood - it was very... More

I loved this restaurant. Nicely appointed - crisp, white tablecloths and napkins. Large, diverse menu and large wine list. Mediterranean cuisine which runs the gamut from Paella to Parmigiana. Potions are generous but not ridiculous. Service is a nice balance of formal and warmth. The server was attentive but unobtrusive. New favorite!
