The pasta is really good at this place but the salad is really smart! They remove the pits from the olives so you don't break your teeth!! And it's really awesome! It's a smart salad!!!! Great place (:

So so pasta at fairly inexpensive prices. Mine was undercooked and over sauced (with pesto).Might depend on who actually cooks it, but this is essentially a pasta fast food shop.

The price is perfect for this large serving of make your own pasta. The ingredients are flavorful and filling and you are surrounded by gaming lamps and plants. I recommend the Pesto Rosso sauce 👌🏼

Asian wok concept but then for Italian pasta. I had never seen this before, you can choose from about 7 different pastas, then select sauce and toppings. All at an affordable price. The restaurant itself is very (Italianish) cozy in one of my favourite neighbourhoods of Barcelona. Personnel was very friendly.

Prepared in an open kitchen, served by Italians, this freshly made pasta is perfect for a late night spur-of-the-moment meal. The menu offers ten different pastas, fifteen toppings and a choice of twelve homemade sauces. Service fast and friendly; the portions more than I could finish; the restaurant is simply designed and has imaginative sculptures fixed to the walls. Well... More

Staying in Gracia

Neighbourhood Profile
Gracia literally stands out from the pack. It used to be an independent town until late into the 19th century. Though it’s just a short commute away from the centre, a visit here feels like you’re in a whole different city. The bohemian vibe has drawn many international artists to this area, resulting in a wide selection of galleries, live music and artsy boutique stores. The nightlife is centered around the vibrant Gracia’s plaças, where young and old gather to enjoy a drink outside. Carrer de Verdi, its main street, offers affordable restaurants and a movie theatre that screens new as well as classic films in their original language. However Gracia's greatest treasure lies just up the hill at Guell Park, where Antoni Gaudi's vibrant and revolutionary art sculptures stand atop unequaled views of Barcelona.
