Little Italy Restaurant
The emergence of Little Italy in 1988 revolutionized the Barcelona restaurant scene. At the time it was not only a pleasant gastronomic, but over two decades it has been a landmark in El Born. A large chunk of its success is owed to its innovative spirit, which has allowed the restaurant to adapt to the times and changing trends whenever necessary.
The new management at Little Italy has gone back to Mediterranean cuisine with an Italian emphasis, for which the restaurant has always been identified. The gastronomic offering is complemented by a wine list of over 50 varieties from the best vineyards in the country.
One of the restaurant’s new features is an innovative cocktail list at reasonable prices. Here an extensive variety of Martinis and Premium gins can be found. The list also features a section of more traditional cocktails with a mojito theme, incorporating innovative mixes of strawberry and mango.
In this part of the city, with a certain New York Soho feel, music is essential. Every Wednesday, Thursday and Sundays nights Little Italy offers live jazz from 21h.
