I jumped in here at the end of a long day out and was able to get a amazing takeaway pizza in just ten minutes. The staff were very friendly and although I speak no Spanish and they speak little English they were very helpful. I recommend the Emmenthal ham and pepperoni. Best pizza oven gad in a while!

You know that feeling as you sit down, have an uncomfortable moment with the staff, and then get that sinking stomach feeling that you should just leave?

Friendly staff, nice small restaurant. Brought us English menus which were a bit tatty but useable, food was fast and fresh but a little bland. Would probably go back though.

Small venue with maybe a dozen tables, clearly the owner is a fan of motorcycle racing with MotoGP photos over all the walls. Went for a quick dinner with colleagues on business - pizza was excellent, hot and made fresh. Fantastic flavours and not overly oily (additional oil was available on the table). Staff were very friendly with menus available... More

The waitress was very polite and attentive, nothing was too much to ask. The pizza... Oh my God, the Pizza. The cheese was creamy, the tomato sauce was light and the cured ham was amazing. 5 stars, no doubts or reservations. Will be recommending!

If you need to eat desperately and are in the surroundings, pizzeria la vela is a good option. The previous owner sold the place to the current one about one year ago. Now much cleaner than before and a little renewed. Book your table if you want to have dinner outside in the spring or summertime

This is only a small local restaurant with a limited menu which we visited mainly as local to our hotel. But what they do serve is very fresh, with home made pasta and delicious pizza. No starters to speak of and limited desserts, but if you just want a main course then its fine. Good value for nice food. Our... More

The pizzaria La Vela was recommended by guests staying at the same hotel as us. They said warm and friendly with good food. So after a long day sightseeing I decided to try the takeout menu.

Neighbourhood Profile
Ciutadella / Vila Olimpica
The sounds of Marina Olympica's rocking boats and clicking mastheads swaying to and fro set an impressive backdrop for Ciutadella and Villa Olimpica. Follow the aromas of garlic, wine, and fresh local fish to the various restaurants running along the marina. A grand bronze fish statue soaring high above serves as a beacon to those searching for the renowned Casino Barcelona or the extremely popular nightclubs which practically lie on the beach itself.
