The Best Italian Restaurants in Barcelona

Barcelona is a true paradise for gourmets. Whether you prefer traditional regional food  or trying all types of world cuisine, the Catalan capital has thousands of possibilities to offer: Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Indian, vegetarian and vegan, Latin, American and lots of high quality Italian restaurants. And we are not talking about Spanish or American chains serving pasta and pizza; we are talking about true Italian restaurants with chefs straight out of Italy ready to delight your taste buds.

And it’s a fact that everybody likes Italian food. If you are looking for a place to dine with friends, family, or planning romantic evening, here are some of the best Italian restaurants in Barcelona.


NAP – Authentic Neapolitan Pizza

Pizza is, without a doubt, one of the best loved foods in the world. Have you ever met anyone who didn’t love pizza?  We bet you haven’t. Many have tried to imitate it but we are convinced that there’s something unique about true Neapolitan pizza. There are several options when it comes to savoring this delicacy in Barcelona, but our favorite is Pizzeria NAP (Neapolitan Authentic Pizza) on number 30, Av. de Francesc Cambó, where you can delight in the true original recipe at a more than reasonable price: a Margherita will only set you back €5.50, and you’ll find they also offer a very convenient lunch menu. And if you’d rather be near the sea, try the new NAP Mar venue in the Barceloneta, 69 Carrer del Baluard.

Other pizzerias also worth trying are the Sports Bar (51 Carrer Ample),  Madre Lievito (1 Carrer de la Llacuna) and Mammamia (230 Carrer de Pallars).


MASSIMO – Top Italian Quality

Its strongpoint is, without a doubt, the quality of the products, which chefs use to create dishes that are 100% Italian. Perhaps you may not recognize anything in the menu, but is there anything better than discovering what they truly eat in a different country?  Drop by and get ready to travel to Italy without leaving your seat. Perfect for a romantic evening.
