We ate twice at Sonrisa, both times inside the venue, where they have a very pretty table that easily accomodates up to 6 people in their lovingly decorated shop. They use only prime ingredients and they prepare the finest Italian traditional meals with them. We were so impressed that we asked if they could cook a "pasta alla norma" for us with aubergines and ricotta salata. This turned out to be the top authentic real thing and the best meal during our vacation. Plus: best value for money in all of Barcelona!!!

Me and my friend discovered this amazing restaurant on our trip in Barcelona!
The food is amazing, all homemade and fresh. The service is so great, and fabio and his girlfriend are so kind (they often gave us cake for free and even cooked something after they closed the bistro. I can definitely recommend this amazing place!!!

PS: we nearly came 3 times per day for around 4-5 days!

Charming place near the beach. Good Italian home-style cooking to enjoy a quick bite in the delightful local or anywhere as they conveniently have take way. If you're in the area, definitely check it out!

It's mostly take-away, but the quality of the food is better than in almost any real Italian restaurant in Barcelona. Very affordable: 6.5E for a menu with DELICIOUS pasta and a nice (but small) second course (meat course + veggies.). These guys understand Italian food. You can sit down too, but it's probably the worst place in BCN if you want to have a "nice dinner".
