The bride and I hadn't been down to Englewood for quite a while which is odd since we live one town over. We decided to stop in at Vino Loco since we hadn't been in about 5 years. Pleasant surprise! It was lovely! Not that it was bad before, but it was, well, average. Not anymore. We had four plates... More

We arrived from Philadelphia to our manasota key rental, the highview (great place if you're planning on staying in Manasota Key), we had never been to manasota key, florida and didn't know what to expect! Quickly realized that we were in a "VERY" low key island with not many choices for good wine! We went to the local supermarket but... More

Hummus with celery, carrot, red pepper, multi-grain chips and the best plump green olives with amazing olive oil drizzled on. Gazpacho is tremendous, so fresh and crunchy, some kind of paper thin peppery wafers. A pear with honey and blue-cheese to die for. Cheese plate, etc… you cannot go wrong. I'm just glad they stay open in the summer when... More

Vino Loco is a delightful treat. A bit of Europe's flavor with a Spanish flare on Dearborn Street in Englewood. Excellent choice of wine. The menu is filled with tapas choices and specials. Kartina, the chef, artistically creates food that is beautiful, creative, and delicious. Try the strawberry watermelon soup when it is on the menu. I love it even... More

Go to Thursday market and then head to this eatery for a delicious lunch on the outdoor patio. Very helpful waitress will help you select tapas guaranteed to please. A reasonably priced wine will complete the experience. Check out the wide selection of wines inside.

The wine selection is quite good. There are some unusual wines and the special wine that I tried was only $5/glass. Nice & different portugese red. Outdoor setting is pleasant, and theoverall vibe is jolly. The food was mixed, The Albondigas (pork/beef meatballs) . First taste was like the smell of fireworks. I thought it was odd but OK. My...

Thanks for the kind comments about our wine selection. We believe it is the most diverse and affordable in the area. I agree with you about the Albondigas. Our Spanish importer sent us a smoked paprika instead of the sweet paprika we normally use in the recipe. Some folks liked it, but I agree that the smokiness might not be... More

This would be a good place to have a snack and a glass of wine before a play at the Lemon Bay Theatre which is just down the street from this sidewalk restaurant...The wait staff were slovenly dressed and not on top of the tables...The tapas were okay but not up to the standards of Tapas Bars in Europe

Our staff has collectively visited over 150 tapas bars in virtually every region of Spain. Other than hanging Jamon Serrano from the ceiling, we think we are very authentic! The organic ingredients in our tapas come directly from Spain or Italy and every dish is made in house. We continuously receive accolades from Europeans and Americans alike who have lived... More
