I was interested in Italian twice in 14 days in spain. I di not realize this was a chain on another place we ate ate Tagatellie earlier. Same menu differ name. Bit disappointed at first. Location better but still around families with kids If you love Italian food at a good cost, this is one of the best in area,. Others are not of quality and gear to tourists. 300 grams pasta to share for sure. Great pizza. If want Italian and okay with families this is goof for you. Get there when it opens at 2030 to have best experience. Good english and english menu. not a typical spanish menu if what you want. If away from spanish, This is great. Value great. Big portions. Be aware you will be surrendered by tourists. Funny, tourists, do the balcony which is nice but tours. Locals do the inside. Make reservations either way. God mix in a 14 day vacation.

This restaurant was a total find. My husband and I loved it. We just happened to walk by and saw some of the food being served at the outside tables. It looked so good we just went inside. Now our spanish is less than even basic but we were able to translate the menu quite easily. They had pictures beside the pasta choices. I know sounds corny but it was very helpful. You choose your sauce and then you choose your pasta. They serve a little dish of green olives when you sit down, try them they are really good. The house wine is a good deal. We had a pizza the first night , yes, we went back, and a pasta dish. Both very good but the second night we had the carbonara with pappardelle all uovo to share, an order of the bread and a bottle of house red and it came to less than 25 Euro total. It was delicious. Had we been in Tarragonna longer we would have gone back a third time. They have a second location in the old town which we walked by but never ate at. It looked really nice as well. I highly recommend this restaurant. We are still talking about our meal.

No need for any starters if you are going to order 2 mains between 2 people. The selection of breads was more than enough; onion and garlic infused crusts and also an olive baked bread.
The calzone was big enough for two alone, filled with juicy mozzarella, lovely boiled ham and nicely flavored with oregano, tomato and mushrooms.
You can chose one of each from the type of pasta and the various styles of sauce. Good pasta, healthy serving.
We were too stuffed for desset!
Great meal!
