Great simple food-salads and pasta dishes, wasn´t busy at 8pm but fills up later as it is small and intimate. Lovely host.

Fantastic place, with wonderful Italian food, nice service and a pleasant, intimate atmosphere. We just wandered in quite early in the evening (20:00) and got a table, but I think booking would sensible: there were people without reservations being turned away all evening.

What a beautiful little restaurant. Offthe beaten track on a back street. Donizetti is a must if you are looking for some excellent food. Whether a romantic meal or family meal this place is just perfect. Only small inside with a relatively small menu, but for us that just adds to the uniqueness of it. Beautifully cooked fresh food with... More

By chance or first dinner in Barcelona was Italian, at Donizetti. The food was excellent, well prepared, the portions were a a little smaller than we like, but very good. Service was friendly but a little disorganized. Still, ian excellent first meal in Barcelona.

Went with my wife and son on a chilly rainy night. It was warm and inviting, I had read the reviews and this was just around the corner from our rented apartment. Not much other choice in the area other than a couple of Japanese and a few Spanish bars selling food. It was very good and we would certainly... More

We took some English friends to Barcelona and knowing that they like Italian food we chose Donizetti. We were not disappointed. We enjoyed a very good meal, antipasti, carne, risotto, pasta and salad, all very tasty. The bill for five including two bottles of good wine and gin and tonics, came to only €125, very good value.

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
