I've been twice in this restaurant. We liked it a lot. The burrata starter is amazing. Pizza a bit small but fine for me

I have been there with a friend and I have liked it! It's not an elegant or romantic place, but a perfect place to eat a good pizza and eat truly Italian pasta. Abroad it's difficult to find a truly Italian place..this is for sure one of that. Giulio e Andrea

The pizza is not bad, a bit small maybe. The place has not been renovated since the 80s, but what you have to prepare yourself for is the service. The italiano guy who is the owner loves chatting with clients and if you show him that he is welcome he will keep talk with you during the entire meal.... If... More

The pizza was anything but good! Way overpriced, lousy taste and worst off all...it was burned!! Just walk along and find another pizza place. There are more then enough to find!

The service was promt and no extra waiting was needeed - However the atmosphere was noisy and nervous. One of the male waiters was actually piercing himself before baking the pizzas. The house wine was quite unpleasant. The pizzas were ok, but quite cold and salty.

They have a lot of staff - so they could be friendly and quick and offer you a good service. But they don't! They just discuss with each other about every move they do. Owner (or his son) was even threatening his waiters to fire them (in front of customers). I think you can imagine the atmosphere... Apart from this:... More

This place looks like a dive, or maybe, like a Queens pizza joint. There are people going in and coming out with apparently good pizza. I had several good experiences at the chain, Tagliatelle, so I thought I'd give the other "T" a try. The restaurant is a bit on the dark and shady side, a little run down, noisy,... More

I went here on a Sunday night with my parents and two friends. The place looks like a low-cost dive from the 80s (no charm whatsoever). The staff are rude, crass, loud, look like they need a good wash and quite frankly overly sexist and manchista! The food was ridiculous too. The starters included over-fried courgette flower heads stuffed with... More

Staying in El Raval

Neighbourhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
