We didn't want to travel on a rainy Saturday Evening and gave Lareira a try. We were pleasantly surprised as the setting was very nice and we could actually hear each other speak.
Portugese and Spanish food are quite similar . The food was very good and the waiter was pleasant and attentive. It's been a neighborhood favorite for many years .

This restaurant is a diamond in the rough because from the outside it looks like nothing special but inside is a attractive and comfortable restaurant with white tablecloths, good silverware and cozy atmosphere. The service has always been prompt and the food preparation has been among the best. I would especially recommend the sangria(homemade with plenty of fresh fruit), baked clams ( topped with bacon) and their rack of lamb. Note - There are two separation doors to this establishment. The one on the left is for the bar (not recommended) and the one on the right is for the restaurant.

The is a family owned and family operated restaurant specializing in Portuguese food. If you don't want fish with bones, remind the waiter to remove all the bones when they grill the fish. Otherwise the fresh fish will come "whole" to the table which is very pleasant except I do not want the bones. Thus, ask them to bring the fish boneless.. Good people and good food.
