    We tried eggplant parmegan and the fillet and had chocolate coulant with vanilla icecream. All of the dishes were very good.

    Our server was the only person in the front of the house for most of the night and it was some of the best service we’ve had since coming to Spain. He was the host, server, bar tender, food runner, and barista. The owner of the restaurant was cooking and left the kitchen to get involved in the front and interact with guests. Both were very friendly and responsive. We had the risotto of the day which was a beet risotto. IT WAS PHENOMENAL. All five of us agreed it was the best risotto we’ve ever had. We started with the fresh bread, olives, and mixed salad. We proceeded to order the chicken Marsala, gnocci, lasagna, and truffle pasta. Lastly, we finished with pistachio gelato, cannoli, panna cotta, and tiramisu. All were fantastic but the risotto, gnocci, panna cotta, and gelato were the highlights. Would definitely recommend to anyone traveling to Barcelona.

    Food was fantastic (Pappardelle Alla Norcia was better than I have had in Italy), service was great and I thought it was really good value for money. The only thing stopping me giving it 5 stars is that it was uncomfortably hot inside (20:15 booking) and there are no options for outdoor seating. Other than that, I can’t fault it.

    The restaurant is small and very low key. The service was very attentive and the food was excellent. Very flavorful beef filet w rosemary, excellent salmon w vegetables and the duck ravioli disappeared in a flash. Tasted house red and white, both excellent. Great for a small family dinner.

    We happened upon this place looking for something within walking distance from our hotel...it was about a 15 minute walk and so worth it!! It's a small restaurant with what appeared to be 1 waiter and maybe someone to help and he ran around constantly. He was pleasant and efficient...we never had to ask for anything...he had a constant eye on everyone so that no one had to ask. From the time you walked in the door and he greeted you by your first name to the time you left, you felt at home. We went back the next night for the same reason, close to our hotel. It was so good, we decided, why not...it was delicious, why go anywhere else:)

    Absolute must while visiting Barcelona. Aside from the food being outstanding, and delicious; the service is beyond compare. Every staff member is willing to go the extra mile and amazing. We were a large family of 8 (incredibly late for our reservation due to issues getting a cab) not only did they still manage to accommodate us, they chilled the room for us since we walked almost two miles to get there! The risotto is some of the best, the gnocchi as well. Save room for the tiramisu because it’s worth it! We would travel back to Barcelona for this restaurant!! Book here immediately!!

    The food and service here were both outstanding! Miguel, our server, was super friendly and helpful. I enjoyed their custom micro-brewed mango IPA. Each of us loved our dishes: ravioli, lasagna, pasta bolognese, and the pappardelle. The cannolo, ice cream, and sorbet we had for dessert were great as well. We would definitely recommend and come back.

    Galu Barcelona is amazing. Every single bite of the lasagna was just awesome - the eggplant Parmesan out of this world - the Lemoncello was perfection - the pistachio liqueur handmade by the owner was just amazing. The tiramisu was crazy delicious. Service was top notch! I love loved this restaurant!!

    Dinner out in Spain. Was a last minute reservation for 10:15 and we were welcomed and did not feel like it was the end of night. Our table was next to bar so ambiance lacking a bit- further back into restaurant likely better. Our food was outstanding! Gnocchi was light, pillows of deliciousness. Beet risotto and burrata was beautiful and so good. Grilled artichokes appetizer so flavorful and presentation on all was beautiful. What a lovely meal for a reasonable price!

    This is for a casual special occasion. I know that’s a mouthful but that’s the best way I can describe it. The host knew my name upon arrival, the wine list was beautiful and the food was awesome. Side note * I tried the gnocchi and it wasn’t to die for but simple in taste. All of my friends meals were AWESOME. Cheese plate…Awesome!! The ambiance was sort of casual but I saw a couple pairs on dates. It was nice to see. Love this place and fully recommend for a celebratory dinner on a weekday.

    Absolutely phenomenal restaurant with fantastic service! Great value as well. Easy to miss, small place with maybe a dozen or so tables, but among the best Italian meals we’ve had anywhere…and at very reasonable prices. Cannot wait to come back again! Artichoke appetizer was amazing. Maybe the best gnocchi I’ve had. All pasta dishes were great and the cannoli’s were soooo good! Don’t hesitate - go today!
