From the outside a modest looking spot advertising pizza. It is so much more! We happened by as the restaurant was opening on a dreary Saturday for lunch. Within minutes the ten tables were filled, it appear to be by local families.
In looking over the menu it seemed to have a Sicilian flair, confirmed by our waiter that the original chef had been from the island.
Both the pastas dishes ordered by myself and my partner were outstanding, 5 star in fact. The ricotta and spinach reminded me of my time living in Sicily. My partner loved his meal and in particular his strong coffee. The panda cotta was smooth and luscious .... Don't miss this treasure.

Small and nice pizzeria close to the Diagonal and Rambla Catalunya. Friendly service, mainly pasta and pizza on the menu. Delicious food, acceptable prices, very fast service. Absolutely advisable for a break.

Just off the beaten track, tucked away and easy to miss, but try not to miss it! Polite staff, very reasonably priced and quality food! The risotto was perfect as was the pizza and desserts.

we popped in here as we were tired and it was just opposite our hotel. The food was good, reasonably priced the waiters spoke English and helped with the menu choices as my husband is allergic to cheese (not easy with italian food).

We were many friends having lunch together in a hurry to go on an excursion and they fed us fast and with very good non expensive delicious lunch.
