Not only are these Neapolitan style pizzas completely delicious and authentic, prices start from €5.99 for a margherita. That’s got to be the lowest price I’ve seen in Barcelona. Similar to the low prices in Napoli itself. Other pizzas are between €8 -12. ‘Special pizzas’ at Mama Pizzeria include toppings like pork cheek and the salty Italian cheese pecorino. An extensive list of classics includes diavola with spicy salami (my personal favourite) and many more. This cosy venue has a few tables inside as well as on street dining.

8 Italian pizzerias in Barcelona where you will definitely return. Spain in Russian
Pizza. Few people have this word that does not cause pleasant gastronomic excitement and associations with hot sunny Italy. However, today it is not at all necessary to go to this country in order to enjoy “real” pizza: you can do this, for example, in Barcelona. Over the past couple of decades, an impressive number of natives of Italy moved to the Catalan capital to open their own business here and fill the previously empty niche of authentic Italian cuisine, in which they soon achieved obvious success. We will tell you about the establishments where you can taste excellent pizza, and the best confirmation of their popularity is the ratings and reviews of local residents.
1. La Balmesina
Located at 193 Rue Balmes (hence the name), the pizzeria, opened just over a year ago, puts the quality of the dough first. Here, the main importance is attached to its production: the fermentation process of the dough lasts at least 72 hours, and selected eco-friendly Italian flour is used for its production. Guests of the establishment are offered pizzas from three types of dough for the most demanding taste: classic, thin, fragile wheat flour and a very special La Pala – a square pizza made from light, crispy porous dough, served for two people. The owners of the establishment are tireless experimenters-perfectionists, ready for endless research in pursuit of “that” perfect combination of taste and sincerely believing that there is no limit to perfection, therefore even demanding gourmets will undoubtedly be satisfied.
2. Frankie Gallo Cha Cha Cha
This Italian establishment with an original name, as if hidden among the streets of Raval (Marquès de Barberà, 15), pays no less attention to the technology of pizza production than in Balmesina: dough fermentation also takes at least 3 days, and Italian products are used to make pizzas highest quality. In addition to delicious pizzas, presented in a wide variety (from classic to the most original), visitors note the special “spark” of the institution – largely due to the unusual atmosphere of a rock club with loud brutal music that inspires energetic jaw movements.
3. Giorgio Barcelona
A restaurant on Ausias March 3, where the magical atmosphere of Italy and authentic interior attract true lovers of the cuisine of the Apennine Peninsula. Chefs create dishes that combine traditional recipes and modern gastronomic trends.

And from Monday to Saturday and from 4 to 7 pm you can enjoy typical Italian tapas. Don’t forget to try some delicious confectionery with a cup of coffee, as well as wine or cocktail tasting.
This is a truly new policy for Italian pizzerias, with the aim of serving, far from the country of origin, Neapolitan pizza of excellent quality at the most democratic prices. Authentic Neapolitan pizza – Neapolitana Authentic Pizza, and this is how the name stands, is now available in Barcelona in the old mystical Born (Av. de Francesc Cambó, 30), as well as in coastal Barceloneta (Carrer Baluard, 69). The atmosphere of simplicity and naturalness reigns in the establishments, which is traditional for small street Italian pizzerias, where you will be served surprisingly quickly grilled pizza, to which you will most likely ask for additional . ..
5. Pizza Pazza
Great Italian pizza in the center of Barcelona for 8 euros? It is quite real if you go to an institution located in the Gothic Quarter (Carrer Ample, 44), where for 9For years, two brothers – natives of Calabria do not cease to delight guests with pizzas of a traditional Italian recipe, served both whole and in portions. A bonus to delicious food and an incredibly warm welcoming atmosphere is a small Italian grocery store where connoisseurs can purchase various sauces, traditional Italian drinks and other gourmet goods.
6. La Bella Napoli

7. Reina Margherita
In the very center of Born (Passeig de Joan de Borbó, 29) there is a pizzeria-trattoria with a sonorous name, pleasant prices and a large selection of dishes. In addition to over 20 charcoal-grilled pizzas, the freshest burrata, parmesan-baked eggplant and many other classic Italian appetizers are worth a try. Both in summer and in winter, a cozy outdoor terrace is available, where the gastronomic delight will be complemented by the warm flickering fire of lamps and the soft music of street performers who have chosen a small square in front of the restaurant.
8. Com a Italy
Another Italian pizzeria has found a place near the picturesque old Sant Pau Hospital (Carrer de Sant Quintí, 39).
