We stubmled across Tucco Real Food one evening while exploring the Gothic Quarter, a neighborhood with a seemingly endless maze of back streets and alleys.
We love how the restaurant is designed...you can enter through the back entrance where a modest bar offers drinks and a big screen which loops --without sound -- classic movies. You also can enter through the front entrance, where you'll be greeted by the location's main dining room.
We enjoyed a couple of cold beers at the back entrance. It's a great experience...there are a few bar stools and a slim wooden counter and that's it.
Tucco is more than its bar, though. The restaurant has a sterling reputation for two things: handmade Italian food and reasonable prices, two things which are hard to find together in Barcelona.
