Description: Tasca has been around since 1995 and over the years has won an abundance of accolades including Best Romantic, Best affordable and Best Tapas Restaurant in Boston. We are best known for being the best romantic affordable restaurant in the Brighton/Allston /Brookline area. All our 36 tapas are priced below $10, most being in the $5 to $8 price point. We are famous for our paellas, offering three….a seafood, a vegetarian and a meat option. All are priced under $20 and perfect for sharing. We also have 12 other entrees, all priced under $20. The great thing about a Tapas restaurant is that you can graze on many small dished and share among friends, or dine in the traditional way of an appetizer and entrée. All diets are accommodated as we have lots of vegetarian options and even have a gluten free menu. We offer daily seasonal specials, 20 craft beers, an extensive wine list comprising mostly of Spanish wines… starting at only $19 a bottle. We always offer a white, pink pomegranate and our famous red sangria by the glass or pitcher. What sets up apart is the vibe. We have no televisions. Our clientele is either young and hip or young at heart. Every Sunday we have a classical guitarist and occasionally we have live flamenco shows. Tasca is perfect for large and small parties alike as we have something to fit everybody's taste. Getting to Tasca is easy as we are located on Commonwealth Ave, half way between BC and BU. We are on the GREEN LINE (Washington Street Stop) and offer $6 valet parking.

Best thing on a weekend is to have reservations, as this place fills up fast. We had a group of six and it was quite tight seating, but the food was worth it. If you go, you have to have the Sangria by the pitcher, it was delicious!! We had 2 pitchers for 6 people which was perfect. The Tapas themselves were very good, and about 2-3 per person is by far enough for dinner. We also each had a dessert which was tasty and just the right size. The service was decent, except we had to keep asking for water. Quaint and authentic, I'd eat here again!

Went on a Friday date night with my wife when staying in Boston for fun. Great food- had croquetas y pollo, potatas y aioli, Parma jamon, short ribs and potatoes, goat cheese empenadas, escargot, and sangria. Plus we shared dessert. The bill? $69. Amazing. Livia was our waitress and was great- kept the tapas coming and good suggestions. Highly recommend.

I had passed this restaurant hundreds of times before I finally went in and was surprisingly wowed by the food. This is a Spanish style Tapas restaurant and it is truly marvelous. The inside of the restaurant is beautifully decorated to take you back to the plains of Spain.

Have been to Tasca a few times. Went with friends, all of us mature women. We were treated like royalty each time, possibly because this restaurant is located in a student area. At any rate, the service was fantastic and the tapas were all fresh and tasty.

my boyfriend and i visited on our recent long weekend trip to boston. made reservations online, and were seated on time. sangria was tasty, and we decided to skip ordering entrees and instead chose six of the tapas options to share. they were brought to the table in a staggered fashion, instead of all at once, which we didn't even have to request. everything was so tasty, that i even decided to be adventurous and order the escargot once we'd finished everything. it too was fabulous! we were so stuffed that would should've skipped dessert, but splurged anyway. service is attentive without being bothersome; food is not to be missed!
