Gastronomic trends come and go but there is one that persists over time, that never gives up and of which we never tire. That is pasta and pizza where no one wins. The smell of the freshly made dough, when the mozzarella floods your mouth and mixes with a delicious homemade tomato sauce has no rival. And the pasta isn’t forgotten: what do you say about stuffed, noodles, fusilli or rigatoni, combined with the thousand and one sauces that exist? To eat well, you don’t need to go to the fanciest kitchens, sometimes you just have to take a ravioli stuffed with carbonara and cream of boletus and you’ll be so comfortable.
Amasaste arrived seven months ago for people to enjoy Italian food in Barcelona at a more than affordable price. Coming from the Abrassame group, they decided to explore the world of Italian pasta thanks to the good friendship that was born between Carmen, the owner of the group, and Maria, the cook at a Bolognese restaurant, one of the times Carmen traveled to Italy. There they learned the affection that comes from Italian food, the care and dedication necessary for a dish to obtain an authentic and unmistakable flavor.
Thats why the menu at Amassame has its own pasta and pizza and that the products are of proximity or an elaboration of the origin, as is the case of its cheeses and sausages of of the Bologna with black truffle, parmesan reggiano and breadsticks; ideal to open your appetite.
Upon entering we recommend you try the ravioli stuffed with prawns with coconut and lime curry sauce that you will love. If in a menu like this made less with the taste of meat, its Parpadelle with stew of bull’s tail will envelope you between the tenderness and softness of a meat that melts in your mouth. And if you prefer to go with pizza, any of the ones offered with surprise you, but we recommend the pizza from the orchard made with a combination of the best vegetable garden.
And as it couldn’t be otherwise, its desserts are homemade and the Tiramisu is the most exquisite. Our recommendation? Share the dishes do you don’t leave anything to try because everything you see on the menu is made with a product that is cared for and they work to offer the best quality. No doubt the name is the reflection of what the restaurant represents: an ingenious pun where the passion for the mass and the homemade becomes evident.
