Marcos Armenteras and his partner Berta Bernat didn’t want to open a restaurant, and their unpretentious pizza bar is explicitly not that. The idea is that you could be eating at a friend’s house. This concept has driven all their business decisions, from the decor to the food. Everything is done in the way that they would do it at home. The pizzas are, therefore, not from Naples or Rome, but simple and homemade, using high-quality ingredients and flavour combinations that the couple enjoy for dinner. The space itself could be a garage off someone’s house, an idea that inspired the name ‘Parking Pizza’, and the high ceilings and walls have an industrial look, with retro features adding to the general feeling of factory-chic. The five long, scrubbed wooden tables are shared between all of the diners and the seats are actually upside-down cardboard boxes, helping to create an atmosphere of chilling in a friend’s garage sharing some pizza and beers. The owners hope to attract an open-minded clientele to enjoy a place that they’ve poured their hearts and souls into.
