This little friendly bar became our local while spending a week in Barcelona. Run by Italians who spoke very good English and treated us just like locals. Best coffee for breakfast and great beers later on with a lovely Italian/Spanish menu for snacks or a light lunch.

Ate lunch here. At 1pm, we were the first diners, but over time it filled up. The food was delicious - everything was good. I found the restaurant using trip advisor, and would highly recommend!

We accidently came across this bar on a trip on a Saturday night. They were so helpful with a drunken friend and were so considerate, and then afterwards we had a lovely meal, which was most unexpected as form the outside it didn't look like it had potential. The staff were brilliant and the food great and highly recommend it.

We were welcome by owner Diego, who btw is from Torino, and had the greatest moment and very nice food experience.. Tasty dishes and very warm atmosphere... We will... More
