The Best Italian Restaurants Near Sagrada Familia


Maybe you’re sick of tapas? Or Barcelona was your second Med stop after Italy and you don’t want to let go? Let’s dig into the best Italian restaurants near Sagrada Familia.

Making up the largest immigrant population in Barcelona, there’s plenty of authentic Italian food to go around:

Sports Bar: This is my number one of the best pizza restaurants in Barcelona. It’s simple, honest Neapolitan pizza done right. They also offer a host of rustic pasta dishes, entrees, and mouth-watering desserts like their Nutella tiramisu. If you want to eat Italian near the Sagrada Familia it is located at Carrer de la Marina 290, just a two minute walk away.

Don Angelo: At Don Angelo you’ll find traditional cuisine made with only the highest quality ingredients. The constantly changing lunch menu focuses on classic dishes like spaghetti with meatballs, seafood risotto, linguine with seafood, ravioli with butter and sage, beef carpaccio… all the staples of Italian cuisine. Don Angelo is located 3 minutes from the Sagrada Familia, at Carrer de Valencia 438.

Restaurant BelleBuòn: Another fantastic Sagrada Familia Italian restaurant of Neapolitan origin offering artisanal Italian cuisine –  with fresh pasta and dishes all cooked on the spot. Naturally, they also make great pizza. BelleBuòn restaurant is located a 10-minute walk from the Sagrada Familia, at Travessera de Gracia 441.
