Straighforward good food
Sometimes it’s reassuring to make simple decisions, faced with a myriad of food choices in a city like Barcelona all the different options can at times be overwhelming. That is the time to go back to basics, to something reliable and mostly importantly good. The pizza then is a comforting choice for the indecisive and when the pizza is a good at the variety served at Parking Pizza then it’s a no-brainer.
Simplicity is the guiding principle here, from the straightforward menu to the interior décor. Even all the pizzas are the same price. Sometimes the most simple solution can be the most difficult to reach. The owners Marcos Armenteras and Berta Bernat investigated different types of pizza for over a year and finally decided on a log oven based approach with a Neapolitan type base and fresh ingredients. True to the Italian roots of the world’s favourite fast food. There are also a few starter dishes to choose from, using fresh and healthy ingredients as well as a range of salads. Fresh juices and a selection of beers, mostly local wines including a few organic varieties which are also all sold by the glass. The home made ice creams are also a must-try.
The space itself is decorated in a no-fuss style, the approach is practical with shared tables and everything on view including the log fired oven. The vibe here is country kitchen but located in the middle of the Eixample, vintage furniture and fittings with clever cardboard box stools where diners can store their belongings while enjoying the fare, a great idea in a city that sometimes suffers from its reputation for pickpocketing.
