Although many will say that the best pizzas are eaten in Italy, Barcelona, being a Mediterranean city that has traditionally received a lot of Italian immigrants, also offers the opportunity to enjoy this “delicacy” in many restaurants and bars. For those who want to avoid the common Telepizza and taste some homemade pizzas cooked in a wood stove, here are some suggestions…
Fratelli La Bufala– if you’ve traveled a bit around the world this name probably will sound familiar to you because there are Fratelli La Bufala even in Miami. Their pizzas, filling and original following the Neapolitan style, will leave you more than satisfied. Many Italians living in Barcelona like go eating pizzas at this restaurant. C/ Pau Claris 72.
La Pizza del Born – although this place doesn’t stand out because of its comfort (it’s usually full of people sitting at the tables or at the bar), offers the tastiest pizza throughout Barcelona. And there’s a wide range where you can choose from! Located, as the name implies, in the central district of El Born, they sell portions or whole pizzas at a great price. Passeig del Born 22. Open until 1am.
Pizzería Ciao – this pizzeria, located in the district of Sants, will surprise you because they prepare the pizza you have ordered there in front of you. Don’t leave without trying one of the homemade desserts or drinking some limoncello at the end of the meal. Being located in a residential neighborhood, the environment there is familiar and the prices are the most affordable of all. C/ Tenor Massini 16.
Maur – there are two Maur Restaurants in Barcelona, one at C/Urgell 9 and another at C/ Muntaner 121. Although Maur is not an Italian Restaurant, they take advantage of the big wood stove they have inside the place to cook meat, “calçots”, and all kinds of Mediterranean products and dishes as pizza, for example. You won’t be disappointed!
