La Casa di Sophia

Italian in North Ciutat Vella

Reassuringly chunky and colourful, the retro-nostalgic furniture here creates a comfortably informal atmosphere that's more than matched by the excellent, healthily prepared food. There's real heart behind the pastas, salads and short list of seafood and meat dishes, and the daily menu can be extended into a degustation-type experience. There are lots of tasty vegetarian options too, and outdoor seating.
