Walking around the town we saw the place and decided to stop for dinner. Eggplants and fried calamares were good, the goatcheese bruschetta fine. I did expect a something better for the pulpo a la gallega. It was a bit too dried and not that soft as it should be (it was quite tasty, though). The beer estrella gallega was... More

Went here with the family to celebrate a birthday. Paella takes about 45 minutes so be prepared to wait. Presentation was good, good selection of seafood - large mussels, clams, shrimp, fish, squid. All tasted very fresh. However, it lacked any flavor. Also our waiter seem like he was just ready to go home - towards the end, he disappeared... More

Great neighborhood Tapas restaurant. My favorite dishes are the chicken/chorizo/rice dish, the garlic shrimp and the stuffed mushrooms. We usually order 3 dishes for the 2 of us. My only complaint is they bring all the food at once instead of staging it as a multiple course meal.

Great variety of delicious food to share. It's a nice way to try foods. The cost of meals could very well surprise you. At $7.95, $8.95, $9.25, or whatever for each dish, your check can be surprisingly high. The restaurant has an attractive setting with wonderful service. The food is delicious and it's a great way to experiment with foods... More

La Tasca has been around for years and is – in my opinion, the best Tapas in the NW Burbs…it is also the only tapas place I know of in the NW burbs, so there you go. It is in a convenient spot off Vail and has street parking, valet and a parking garage around the corner. I tend not... More

First dish was great and then it steadily declined. Maybe our taste buds were not used to the spices in the food. Waiter was helpful in explaining dishes.

My husband and I love Tapas and happened to be near La Tasca with our 12 year old daughter. The food we tried was very good but the waiter's recommendations were outstanding. Definitely ask what he recommends. Our daughter is not super picky but also not adventurous so she struggled finding something she liked (she ate a lot of bread).

The food is consistently great! We love the tapas but we especially enjoyed the order of trio of grilled sausages – chorizo, duck and lamb and the herbed goat cheese.

I've been here several times over the past few years, and the food is just OK. Whenever we order something different than the popular dishes we are disappointed--but if you stick with the popular dishes it is good.

Excellent lamb chops. Don't pas up the calamari or grilled octopus. The service was great bud hard to fit all those small plates on the table.
