La Castafiore

    This little corner of Italy can be found in the Eixample district, just a couple of blocks from Plaça Universitat. Named after the pasta-mad opera singer from a Tintin comic strip, La Castafiore was opened in 1981 by Pablo and Carmen, who can still be found behind the counter of their deli to this day. The couple’s obsession with fresh pasta was sparked by chance, after they struck up a friendship in Ibiza with a retired pasta connoisseur from Italy. Under their maestro’s watchful eye the pair picked up basic pasta-making techniques, which they perfected through years of hard work and practise. Today, as ever, La Castafiore revolves around fresh pasta and everything that goes with it to make a fantastic meal. You can choose from chilled pasta sauces, ready-to-eat antipasti, cheeses and cured meats, washed down with wines from all over Italy, Spain and the rest of the world.Show lessRead more
