Top 10 Pizza Restaurants in Barcelona
One thing you never want to do is mistake a Spaniard for an Italian, or vice versa.
That being said, even the Spanish can’t deny that the Italians have contributed something very important to the culinary world: pizza!
The people of Barcelona love a good pizza night, and there are restaurants quite literally scattered across the city, all competing for the title of ‘best in town’. Having eaten my way through these streets a number of times over, here’s where I’ve found the best of the best:
1. Focacceria Toscana in Barcelona
I’m not usually one to rave about ready-made pizzas that have been left standing awaiting someone to purchase, but Focacceria Tosacana have done something very right here.
Situated close to the Barceloneta beach, this small pizzeria is a grab-and-go vibe; a very informal setting and not enough tables to cater to the endless demand.
The pizzas are fantastic, and are always served hot. You can have an affordable meal here if you’re on a strict travel budget.
Hours: Monday TO Sunday — 12pm to 12am
ADDRESS: Carrer de Ferran, 41, 08002 Barcelona, Spain
Metro STATION: Jaume I
2. NAPOLETANI D.O.C in Barcelona
If you’re a fan of that bubble-crust, thin base type of pizza, then you’ll need to venture to Napoletani in the inner-city.
They’ve been a part of Barcelona since 2008, offering invaluable contribution to the pizza scene here. As I said, this is a very specific style of pizza and not everyone’s cup of tea. Because of the thick crust, the sauce tends to gather in the center of the pie, giving the illusion of a watery topping.
Use the age old fold and stuff technique (Google it!), and you’ll see what all the hype is about!
Hours: Wednesday TO Monday — 1:30pm to 4pm // 8pm to 11:30pm
ADDRESS: Carrer de la Diputació, 101, 08015 Barcelona, Spain
Metro STATION: Urgell
3. Pizzería Bar Ottantotto in Barcelona
This charming restaurant, in the heart of Barcelona, makes wood-fired pizzas in different styles, depending on the desired region of Italy.
It’s a great spot for anyone who is very particular about their pizzas. The staff will do whatever they can to construct you the most perfect pie in town. Book in advance!
Hours: Wednesday TO Sunday — 1pm to 4pm // 8pm to 11:30pm
ADDRESS: Passatge d’Utset, 2, 08013 Barcelona, Spain
Metro STATION: Encants
What I love about Made in Sicily, is that you can get a slice, or an entire pizza, here no matter what time of day it is. This is the best spot for late night pizza in Barcelona, as the kitchen only closes between 3am and 9am, daily.
It’s well priced and delicious, and the restaurant caters well to children.
Hours: Monday TO Sunday — 9am to 3am
ADDRESS: Carrer dels Escudellers, 35, 08002 Barcelona, Spain
Metro STATION: Liceu
5. Pasta Madre in Barcelona
Pasta Madre is conveniently located in el Raval, and well suited to both a sit down meal as well as a grab-and-go. Their pizza costs €2.50 per slice, which is pretty good considering how authentically Italian it is.
They also have a pasta menu for dine-in customers.
Hours: Monday TO Sunday — 9am to 2am
ADDRESS: Carrer dels Tallers, 3, 08001 Barcelona, Spain
Metro STATION: Jaume I
6. Parking Pizza in Barcelona
Parking Pizza blew up on the influencer scene not too long ago, and for good reason. The trendy interior could be anywhere in the world: London, New York, Los Angeles, and theme offers flavors that aren’t commonly found in Barcelona pizzerias (fancy some truffle oil?).
Hours: Monday TO Sunday — 8pm to 11pm
ADDRESS: Carrer de Londres, 98, 08036 Barcelona, Spain
Metro STATION: Provença
7. La Pizza del Sortidor Poble Sec in Barcelona
If you’re ever in doubt about where to eat in Barcelona, Poble Sec is generally a safe bet. This is an up and coming part of the city, so it’s still very eclectic in terms of flavors and cuisines.
They do sourdough pizzas cooked in a wood-fire oven, and on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings all pizzas are just €7.
Hours: Tuesday TO Sunday — 5pm to 10:30pm
ADDRESS: Carrer de Blasco de Garay, 46, 08004 Barcelona, Spain
Metro STATION: Poble Sec
8. Da Nanni Pizzería in Barcelona
Not far down the road, is another great spot called Da Nanni. It’s a two minute walk from the Barcelona Cathedral, and offers excellent Napoli style pizzas with efficient service to match.
If you happen to be staying in this part of town, take the time to eat here at least once!
Hours: Monday TO Sunday — 12pm to 11pm
ADDRESS: Carrer de la Llibreteria, 10, 08002 Barcelona, Spain
Metro STATION: Barceloneta
9. Frankie Gallo Cha Cha Cha in Barcelona
If you like your pizza to come with a side of funk, then visit Frankie Gallo Cha Cha Cha for the whole shebang! At night, the signage is illuminated and the 80s hiphop roars through the background.
All of their signature pizzas are outstanding, and I suggest booking early if you intend to get a table. This place is only open between Thursday and Saturday, so it tends to get crowded!
Hours: Thursday TO Saturday — 8pm to 11pm
ADDRESS: Carrer del Marquès de Barberà, 15, 08001 Barcelona, Spain
Metro STATION: Drassanes
10. La Balmesina in Barcelona
If you’re looking for something more intimate and calm, then I highly recommend visiting la Balmesina near the Sagrada Familia.
This is one spot I will return to time and time again. The ingredients are consistently to standard, as the pizzas are to die for. End thing off with their homemade cheesecake and you’ll be quite happy to never eat another meal again.
