“ZOMFG PIZZA FRITTA!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2013

You guys have no idea what does it mean for an Italian to be able to taste in Barcelona a PIZZA FRITTA. It is a typical dish from Napoli, it's not even something you come across too often in Italia!
They make 3 different variations, but I would suggest to ask for a "completa" - not on the menu.
It's not very light, but I don't think that anyone looking for something light would eat a fried pizza! Don't worry, the ingredients are genuine and of very high quality (for example, they make their own mozzarella di bufala in girona). I went there several times and always managed to amuse my international friends with the taste of their dishes. I would say that everything is way above average to be an italian restaurant abroad. The place is very small, so for more than 3 people I'd sugest to book, but if you don't, it's still gonna be worth the wait.

“Best pizza of Barcelona!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

Make sure you order their own "Sports Bar Pizza" which includes ricotta rolled into the sides of the pizza, and mozarella de buffala (made locally, they have buffalos in Girona). It simply is the best pizza I've ever had. The other pizzas are pretty good, of a level of goodness comparable to those at NAP in El Born, but their own pizza is the one that stands out, you won't find better in Barcelona. Desert-wise, the baba al rum was pretty nice (freshly baked) but my fave there is the chocolate cake made with pan de stelle biscuits as a base, similar to a tiramisu but without the coffee and with a light touch of nutella. Some of the employees only speak italian, the one who attends me usually is super friendly!

“Wow! EXCELLENT! Match + amazing food and quality!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

When my husband-Italian brought me to this place to see the football match Napoli-Sampdoria, I was so sceptic about eating in this place! But as soon as we arrived, my opinion changed completely! This bar is great! You can not only see the football, but also enjoy a fantastic lunch!

All the crew of "Sports bar" are Italians, mainly Neapolitans.
In the autentic oven they bake amazing bread and pizza just in front of you.
The seafood is Much fresher than in most of "tipical" Catalan restaurants of Port Olimpic, Barceloneta and Gothic Quarter.
The pasta is so well done, that even Italians appreciate it and say it tastes like at home. Not even speaking about Mozzarella di Buffala, wich is made of milk of Italian ghees here, in Spain.
Home-made deserts are delicious!!!

The service is fast, friendly, and with a personal approach. Especially, the waiter Mimmo was super-helpful and all suggestions given by him were extremely good.

During the match the Bar is full, there are
mainly Italians, and the atmosphere is very pleasant and exciting!

“Best pizza I've ever eaten!”

Really really good pizza, all fresh ingredients, service was very fast, really reasonably priced. It's pretty cramped inside but the meal more than made up for that!
