“Good local pizza place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2012

It was on the spur of the moment that we decided to go to La Tarantella and the experience of dining there was not pleasant. The waiter was indecisive of where to sit us even though the restaurant was half empty inside and out on the terrace (he was thinking that the restaurant might get busy later on); he should have given the people who were already there the service that they deserved regardless.
Though the pizza was good but the inspiration was already gone to enjoy it.
The restaurant caters to locals so we don't think they care much since the Spanish are creatures of habit and used to the long wait while sitting around, chatting, smoking and drinking coffee.

Nice pizza but service was was slow and incompetent. It's a busy place but you need to put up with the service to get to the good value and pretty nice Italian food

“GREAT little Italian place in such a great city!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2010

I was in Barcelona for 2 weeks and had to eat here twice. The owner Nicolas is there, himself, hosting while his young son Salmas. The second time I went there, I was watching the World Cup. These guys can party AND can cook great food. If you need a break from the typical Catalan food , but still want the hospitality of Europe, go here. The owner even recongnized me the second time and had dinner with me!

Also the place is WELL air-conditioned, so it was a nice break from the balmy Barcelona weather.
