Small local place worth checking out..if you like eggplant parm..this is the place to go! My husband had the lamb and loved it. They have something for everyone and a great wine menu as well.

We had a party of 9 for Easter dinner and it was very good. There was only one mishap...that being the fact that someone at our table had a long piece of hair in their salad. The waiter apologized profusely and returned with a new salad. The prices are a little high but everyone enjoyed their food. The building was... More

My husband and I come here whenever we want a meal we know will be good. The tapas at the bar are delicious (and so is the sangria). One of my favorite meals of all-time is the rack of lamb. We've never had a negative experience here and it's a place I always recommend to friends.

I went here with my family for my cousin's baby shower. The staff was great. The location was perfect from the hotel. The food was great even for vegan and vegetarians. I would go back.

Tiny sign out front. Drove past it three times (look for the Key Bank, it's next door). Pleasant interior. Not that busy, but we stood there way too long to be seated. Some tables have white linen table clothes, some do not. Reasonable menu and prices (for Albany), but for a restaurant named after a Spanish city, a majority of... More

My group of five wanted to try something different for lunch this past Thursday. So someone mentioned Barcelona on Western Avenue in Albany NY. Three people had diet coke and the other two just had water. For lunch I had the Ensalata Romana – Grilled chicken atop a bed of fresh spinach garnished with goat cheese and garbanzo beans with...

My husband and I have been to Barcelona several times because the food is delicious! Service is always wonderful! We've been for both romantic meals and fun nights at the bar for their tapas menu. We recommend it always for people looking for a good restaurant in the Albany area.

I've had several meals here and each was delightful. The service was never rushed but I was always able to leave (if I chose) in about an hours time. However, tonight the service was painfully slow. The food was still as good, as always, but that was overshadowed by the 2 hour meal. For a romantic meal maybe 2 hours... More

Had Red Snapper meal. It was fantastic. I have been there before and and had the Seafood Paella. That was also very good. Great food and prices are not too expensive.

We visited with a large party, lots of indecision and special requests. The waitress handled everything with grace and got everything right...high marks for that. My meal, a filet with roasted potatoes and grilled vegetables was very good. They really could use more help on the floor but the women working tonight worked hard and quickly, too bad they didn't...
