Pizza, Pizza, Pizza! The Italian delicacy

Written by Ana Petrusevski

If you’re clicked through and are reading this, then you must be a pizza fan… or it might be a Sunday night. Whatever the reason this Italian dish has been delighting us for generations and in Barcelona, there are plenty of pizza restaurants to tickle your fancy.

Here are three pizza places to add to your list. Before you go ask yourself what kind of pizza are you looking for? Traditional, organic or something different? The answer lies below.

Traditional: La Bella Napoli

La Bella Napoli is a busy place and isn’t that always a good sign for Italian restaurants? If they’re the real deal, can they be anything but? The plates being carried through the restaurant will steal your gaze more than once, the aromas, the chatter and clatter will all add to what is an authentic Italiano experience. The pizzas here have a thin crust, a homemade tomato sauce served up just right with your selection of toppings. If you have room for dessert then make sure to try the tiramisu, it is as traditional and delicious as they get.

Address: Calle Margarit, 12-14, 08004 Barcelona

Organic and delicious: Piano Piano

Piano Piano is located at the Placa de la Via de Gracia. They have no outdoor seating so you can either eat inside, plop yourself on the bench outside their front window or enjoy your food in the square watching the buskers or the kids playing football.

My suggestion would be to pass on the pizza on your first visit and order a piadina instead. Piadina or Piada is a thin Italian flatbread, typically prepared in the Romagna region of Italy. The first bite into Piano Piano’s piadina will be savored my friend, the fresh ingredients will take your taste buds to happy land.

Address: Plaza Vila de Gracia 7, 08012 Barcelona.

Looking for more than just pizza: Da Greco

The Da Greco restaurant has a few features to add to your dining experience. As well as a great range of Italian specialties including pizza, the experience is amped up with a couple of very unique features. Here you can enjoy watching some of Italy’s best-known films or admire the Baroque era statues littered throughout the restaurant, my favourite is the reclining voluptuous nude in bronze.

Address: Santa Teresa, 10, Gràcia 08008 Barcelona
