Italians are Barcelona’s greatest foreign born population and all 25,000+ of them need their pizza fix.
Here’s where you can get the best Barcelona pizza for your money.
The Best Pizza in Barcelona
€8.00-€14.00 | 51 Carrer Ample | Metro: Jaume I (yellow line L4) | Website
Don’t be fooled by the nondescript name, these pizzas in the heart of the Gothic Quarter are extraordinary. The chewy sourdough crust is straight out of Naples and so are the staff. Also underrated are their seafood pasta dishes.
The pan di stelle dessert (tiramisu made with cookies instead of ladyfingers + nutella) is out of this world. A second location has opened at 123 Avinguda Diagonal (metro Poblenou, yellow line L4).
Get there early (8 pm) if any of the big Italian football teams are playing.
Da Michele Barcelona
€9.00-€15.00 | Consell de Cent 336 | Metro: Passeig de Gracia (various) | Website
So, the place that made pizza famous in Naples all way back in 1870 has recently opened and is already a Barcelona pizza institution. If you don’t trust me then maybe trust Julia Roberts’ moral obligation in Eat, Pray, Love.
World-renowned chef Anthony Bourdain also ranked it among his highest. It’s €9.00 for a margherita but with such authentic quality and massive pizzas spilling over the plate I haven’t heard any complaints.
€9.00-€14.00 | 48 Carretera de Collblanc | Metro: Collblanc (various) | Website
One of the best Southern Italian restaurants in Barcelona, this one specializes in Calabrian cuisine so try anything with their homemade spicy sausage. The in-house ravioli are terrific but the wood-burning oven and terrific pizza selection are the highlight.
This is a good place to go because it’s walking distance from the famous Camp Nou football grounds.
NAP (Napoli Authentic Pizza)
€7.00-€14.00 | Avinguda Francesc Cambó 30 | Metro: Jaume I (yellow line L4) | Website
A true pizzeria with no pasta. This is the best value pizza in Barcelona. A simple traditional menu with creative seasonal specials. Did I mention the 1 euro digestivos? Pour me another limoncello because this is a great place to drink.
It’s always busy so get there early (9 pm) and have a drink in the ‘courtyard’ – they don’t take reservations. There’s a second location in Barceloneta (Barceloneta yellow line L4) at 69 Carrer del Baluard.
€6.50-€13.00 | Carrer de la Llacuna 1 | Metro: Jaume I (yellow line L4) | Website
The most stylish entry in the list with its cool white brick walls, wine bottle lights, flowers, and hanging clothes. You’ll feel like you’re out in some Italian square. With prices below €7.00 for a basic (but huge) pie this place is about simplicity and value.
Just look up at the chalkboard menu and its list of pizzas and a single pasta of the day. Not a lot of vegetarian choices but who’s keeping score? This pizzeria is found in one of the city’s best neighbourhoods to stay: Poble Nou.
€7.50-€14.00 | Passeig de Joan de Borbo 29 | Metro: Barceloneta (yellow line L4) | Website
From the outside you may think this is another tourist trap a stone’s throw from the beach but this little hole in the wall packs a Barcelona pizza punch. Top quality pizzas with only the best ingredients and a friendly customer service that’s unfortunately missing at other top restaurants in the area.
A bonus? Owing to its position in Barcelona’s fisherman’s quarter there are magnificent seafood pastas.
La Bella Napoli
€10.00-€15.00 | 14 Carrer de Margarit | Metro: Poble Sec or Parallel (green line L3) | Website
If Sport Bar took away the screens and put out some white table cloths and classy decor you’d get this. They’re all Neapolitans and all very playful. The authentic wood-oven pizza is top quality and the seafood pasta is worth the extra money.
Here you can also sample some Italian craft beers not found in other Barcelona pizza places: I recommend the Menabrea blonde.
Pizzeria La Tarantella
€9.00-€14.00 | Sepulveda 98 | Metro: Urgell (red line L1) | Website
Another top quality family run Barcelona restaurant joint with a high-paced atmosphere straight out of Naples. Quality and value meet their match here – on Mondays and Wednesdays all pizzas are only 7 euro! If you buy three pizzas on a Wednesday you get a free bottle of wine.
Try the meloncello!
