Nice Italian restaurant with specialities from Sardinia. Very good located. Try to sit far from the main entrance because it's not good isolated.

El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this
gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an
excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic
