We ordered a bottle of their house cab, tomato/rutabaga soup and a cheese and cured meats platter. Enjoyed every bite. Good service and a very pleasant table overlooking Dearborn St. made for a special evening.

My wife and I visited the restaurant based on a friend's recommendation. The setting is pleasant and the food was good. Unfortunately, our evening was spoiled when the owner visited nearby tables to discuss politics. We found her comments rude, offensive, demeaning, and insulting. Since it was our night out and our presence support her business and livelihood we do... More

We have discussed this situation with the complaining party at length prior to the posting of this review. The conversation occurred at one table, not multiple tables, and involved a couple who had been verbally assaulted by a person visiting our establishment following the election. We are an inclusive establishment and the safety and well being of our customers is... More

Live music, great service and wonderful food: this was our experience at the Sunday Brunch at Vino Loco on Dearborn St. in Englewood. The best Eggs Benedict I have ever had and the French Press coffee was extraordinary. They know what they are doing here and if you like the wine you ordered you can buy a bottle at the... More

Not been here is a while. Waited a long time before anyone came to talk to us. We noticed that one of the servers were at the next table talking casually with another customer about her upcoming trip! 15 minutes later we were about to get up and leave, and she noticed us and asked if we needed anything? Really?... More

I was puzzled and confused by this review, so I reached out personally to Joe, but no response. Given the timing of the visit, we deduced it was on Saturday, August 6th, as Friday we had a cellist and Thursday no music at all. The first Saturday of each month there is a street event with old cars and lots... More

We decided to stop here after a great experience a few months ago. And this time was just as wonderful. We shared a bottle of red wine and ordered warm Brie to start. A special of the evening was Pesto Crusted Cobia with a corn salad, which sounded delightful. We ordered this and loved it. For dessert we chose the... More

Five of us went for tapas and really enjoyed ourselves here. A small venue with attentive, friendly and timely service, we enjoyed plate after plate of tasty treats. Would definitely return.

We thought there was too much bread with each Tapas dish. although there were substantial portions the abundance of bread detracted from the meal.

Thank you for your insightful comments. Most folks love our homemade sauces and marinades so much that they enjoy our crusty warm bread for dipping. We often get requests for extra bread. We are always happy to accommodate a request for less bread. We're pleased that you enjoyed the balance of your meal. More

We split from our very large group dinner to come here. Got the last table and we were very pleased with the food, wine, and service at the small, quaint bistro.

Although we live in Port Charlotte, unfortunately we don't often make our way to Englewood. However, on a whim, we chose to stop at Vino Loco, and we "found" a great, elegant, cozy and friendly place to eat before visiting a local playhouse! The tapas selected tasted great and even had some gluten-free! Pricing a li'l above average, but fair... More
