Tapas just outside Harvard Square

Do go and sit at the bar. Ignore the dinner items and order from the tapas menu. Have a big variety and share with your companions. Sip sangria and spend several hours. Lovely.

Delicious choice of tapas including many vegetarian options. Great mojitos, wine and beer. Sumptuous dessert, try the homemade dulce de leche ice cream!

Dinner here with friends from out of town visiting son. Nice atmosphere and decor. Friendly and attentive service. Shared tapas with wife. Somewhat mixed results. Short Ribs were excellent. Eggplant fair. Garlic shrimp very small in a butter garlic sauce. Overall good meal. The real problem is the noise level which made it very difficult for conversation without yelling. This... More

We walked from my daughter and son-in-law's new apartment with our granddaughter to this wonderful restaurant. Very friendly service and our food selections were very filling for a table of five. The Gorditas and Buñuelos de Verdura were a table favorite out of the seven tapas we ordered; but they all are so delicious. We tried the wine samples and... More

There is nothing better than a tapas restaurant! Small plates to enjoy so many different flavors and foods for a reasonable price. We ate like royalty and left stuffed. The bill was under $100 and that included a liter of there excellent sangria. Dali's is probably our favorite Boston area restaurant and we try to get there every time we... More

Called ahead of time on a Saturday night and we were placed on a wait list. Immediately upon entering the restaurant, we were seated. There were four of us dining. We each ordered two tapas and shared amongst us. Every one agreed that each selection was delectable. We would definitely come back here again. Great atmosphere and pleasant wait staff.... More

The server specifically asked us if we wanted our various dishes "slow" or "all at once"; we asked for "slow." He proceeded to bring every dish but a couple "all at once." My short ribs were tasty, as they have been on previous visits to Dali. However, my other two small plates were spectacularly poor. Baked feta in tomato sauce:... More
