We had mostlyl vegetarian ones --cauliflower and broccoli in cheese puff pastry, spinich with raisins and nuts (really good), crepes with eggplant ragout, saffron battered fried shrimp,... More

This restaurant is not cheap but it has all the right things to make you pay for the value. It has fantastic food; great service and nice ambient. The waiting time can be long on weekends but if you go early enough you will be fine. The manager is very nice and friendly! I love going there! I would go... More

Went with a friend and his son and girlfriend -- all of us enjoyed the experience immensely, despite our age differences. The sangria was delicious and each food dish had clearly been prepared with care. There's something for everyone, from meat and potatoes to grilled asparagus, seafood of all types and preparations, and creative combinations that you wouldn't think of... More

Love, love, love this place! Small and quirky, it has a cozy atmosphere and amazing staff. The food is great and the sangria is the best in town (order it by the pitcher. no, really). Say hello to Señor Frog while you are there as well!

Dali transports you the second you enter - it is a beautiful, romantic, the food is out-of-this-world.. I would go every night if I could, if only to feast on the Gambas al Ajillo (Garlic Shrimp). I've loved this restaurant for romance, friends, a Bachelorette Party, family - you can't go wrong. All are welcome and the menu is tremendous.

If you can get past the lines and the noise in Dali, the meal makes it well worth your visit. With an oustanding variety of tapas-style dishes, everyone in our party had a chance to try something new. The food is all fresh and very tasty. The noice is overwhelming at times, making me wish I could go back on... More

Going to this place was like taking a little trip to Spain. The tapas menu was to die for. Don't ask me what we ordered, because I couldn't pronounce most of the menu, but everything was delicious. So delicious that even my picky husband loved each of the five tapas we ordered. Not to mention our waiter was full of... More

We have eaten here several times while visiting the Boston area. It is a delightfully crowded place full of charm. The tapas selections here are like no other in variety and taste. My family's two favorites (so difficult when all of them are delicious) are the Sopa Ajo (garlic soup) and the Chipirones Rellenos (squid stuffed with tuna and cooked... More

Soooo, this place is really interesting, and fun in schtick sort of way. I took my daughter there after she had a team practice, as she is very into trying different food. It was so busy! The bar was jammed, the sidewalk had a line, and there were several large groups waiting for a table, and it is a small... More

If you like Tapas, this place is for you! They have an amazing selection, and an ambiance that's nice and cozy. This is a great place for a date, friends, or a birthday party. I'm absolutely obsessed with their food, and they have great sangria. You won't regret coming here.
