“Great Pizza and Pasta - Excellent Service”
Reviewed 14 September 2011

Could not agree more with Cristina who ate at Topo Gigio this month as well. We enjoyed Topo Gigio tonight after the Flamenco Palace - - where we had Sangria rather than the meal which looked unappetizing. Checked in a few doors up to Topo Gigio after the show and were greeted by the waiter who hails from Italy. Four of us had several pizzas and a pasta. The kitchen was very accommodating and made a special pizza we requested. Excellent service throughout and really good food along with a reasonable price. Service in Spain generally is lukewarm at best but our waiter at Topo Gigio was great and would bring us back. Try a few pizzas and you won't be disappointed. We enjoyed our meal very much and recommend Topo Gigio. It makes a great add on to the Flamenco Palace if you opt out of their meal.

“A hidden gem”
Reviewed 11 September 2011

Every once in a while, you may stumble, quite unexpectedly, on a hidden gem. That was our experience in Topo Gigio. Tucked away next to a 'flamenco palace' just north of the Plaza Catalunya, this small pizzeria provides an intimate and homely atmosphere and great service. The food is really good too and at a very modest price - sometimes a challenge for visitors to find in Barcelona. It's always good to know that you going to a restaurant and that you are going to leave with a positive feeling.
