Our hotel recommended to go to Santa Monica to watch a football match and dinner. The service was excellent. They are very nice workers and the boss was very friendly all the time. The food was really good. We ordered two salads and they were really well done. I have a restaurant business in Barcelona, and that's why I have a professional opinion. I recommend this place...

This is a treasure- good choice for good food at inexpensive prices in the heart of the historical city centre!

The location is not that easy to find as it most of its seating is in the basement.

It provides a cafeteria style approach where you move down the aisle asking for your particular food choices and finally take the tray to the cash register.

The atmosphere inside is to recreate US memorabilia giving it a burger and fries kind of feel. While these items are served they also offer different Italian dishes as well so there is excellent choice. Food quality is good and service is efficient. Go for it!

Good food and not expensive considering its location. A good choice also for an aperitivo since the nibbles served with the drink are plentiful enough to serve as an evening meal. The only drawback is that it did not have a heater outside and it was a already a bit chilly in the evening late October.

Visited the place on the last day of our trip to Italy, good mexican food, it was good to cherish a different cuisine, after being on Pizzas and Pastas thoroughout the trip. Definetely visit next time. The staff was very good although they couldn't speak English.
