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

Stopped in tonight on my trip and will definitely be going back. The house Moscato Di Asti is outstanding. Majority of the desserts are gluten free which is why I went. Heard they are a farm to table type place and was excited about it. Everything is made fresh. Had the chocolate almond torte which is GF and was very... More

As featured in Coastal Living and Harbor Style Magazines, Vino Loco is more than a restaurant. Many of the ingredients utilzed in our Organic Dishes, such as Artisan Cheeses, Charcuterie, Olive Oils and Marconna Almonds are available to take home. Chef Katrina prepares exciting gourmet fare which change weekly. Our upscale but casual atmosphere is conducive to relaxing, whether inside or on our outdoor patio. Enjoy a glass of wine from our extensive pour list! Take home a chilled bottle from our cooler or a yummy red from the retail wine and gift shop. Be sure to check our website for Wine Tastings, Dinners and other exciting events. Our Catering Service offers an array of scrumptious dishes prepared just for you by our highly skilled staff. You can even rent Vino Loco for your own special occasion. See you there!
