Nice place, the pizzas and Burger with fois was good, but the small pastas we started with where a bit cold and the flavours "just ok"... good house wine and it all ended up at a reasonable price.

Went for lunch on a Sunday- lovely staff and gorgeous dinning room. Subtly outdoor seating that was covered from rain and any wind. Menu and food was good and wine was very nice! Desserts were fabulous! Comfortable and filled with locals. This is tucked away down a side street so don't walk past it!

After 10 years I returned to this italian flavoured restaurant to discover again a very friendly and welcoming Team. The dishes are innovative and pleasantly presented. Fresh and tasty salads, home made pasta and wonderfull deserts are on the menu. Its realy wearth to spend an italian evening in Barcelona.

We went here for lunch with no expectations at all. But this was the best place we have visited this far in Barcelona. The service was quick and nice, the food was good, and the price for the lunch menu was really good. I will definitely recommend this place!

Went three times. Very kind and polite staff. Food is good. Pastas, Pizzas, Meat, Fish. Nice cosy atmosphere although decor is a little dated. The restaurant is always a little bit empty but that doesn't mean the quality is poor. Recommended, as good proper Italian restaurants are few in the area.
