La Piccola Carmela: The Best Italian Restaurant in Granada

One of the highlights of my fourth trip to Granada was certainly visiting La Piccola Carmela.
I fell in love with the restaurant when I discovered it on my first visit a few years ago, and have been returning there ever since, each time discovering new flavours.

I thought it was about time it landed its own spot on this blog too!

Call me a tourist, but I have not had much luck with Spanish restaurants, but an Italian one never disappoints with the food quality. For this one, I would go as far as calling it exceptional.

La Picolla Carmella is located at the edge of Plaza Nueva, almost opposite the pickup stop for buses towards Alhambra.

The menu is full of Italian classics and they certainly don’t disappoint.

As a welcome treat, you would get a small portion of pasta, or another small portion of free tapas that will leave you wanting more.

I have tasted four different pizzas now and they were all spectacular.

Even the exotic mix of avocado and smoked salmon on a pizza was just heaven in the mouth! The four-cheese pizza I had there was beyond description – melt in your mouth, the perfect amount of good quality cheese on freshly made pizza dough – culinary heaven.

Pasta is something I normally go for, and on my first visit I had the black pasta with salmon, which was delicious, but it didn’t beat the mascarpone risotto with shrimp I had last time. Such a simple dish, but so delicious I wanted to order another one as soon as I finished.

If you’re in the mood for pasta or pizza, the salads are equally delicious and taste super fresh, my husband especially complimented their Ceasar salad and the dressing.

The staff is very attentive, professional and friendly, and the inside of the restaurant is very cosy and welcoming. They have plenty of seating outside by the main road if you don’t mind the traffic noise.

Just reviewing these photos makes me hungry for another visit.

If you’re in Granada and want to have some really really good food, head over to La Piccola Carmela, you won’t be disappointed.
