We discovered the Pasta Bar while wandering around the side streets off of Las Ramblas. We had a delicious meal at an economical price. The staff was very friendly and the service was quick. My teenagers enjoyed picking out the sauces and the type of pasta they wanted. Would definitely go again.

Stopped here to have a bite to eat after visiting the aquarium at Port Vell, great little Italian restaurant, very friendly staff and extremely quick service, would highly recommend coming here instead of choosing any of the restaurants on the Las Ramblas as prices are significantly higher. Much cheaper restaurants on the side streets, we learnt this the hard way during our visit.

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.

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.
