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.

“Out of this World!”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

I dined at Tasca Tapas Restaurant last night with my family. We ordered the following:

Queso fritos de cabra
Jamon Serrano y Queso Manchego
Croquetas de pollo y jamon
Albóndigas
Calamares fritos
Brie a la plancha
Mejillones
Pitcher of red Sangria

Though everything was delicious and cooked to perfection, hands down the 2 best dishes are the Croquetas de pollo y jamon (Chicken and ham croquettes served with Romesco sauce (contains almonds)) and the Calamares fritos (Fried calamari with salsa Andalucia). The calamari were so good that we asked for a second order. My brother said that they were the best calamari that he has ever had. For dessert we shared the Crepe Helado (Cookie ice cream rolled in a thin crepe and smothered in a chocolate and amaretto sauce with toasted almonds). Like everything else we ordered, it was very good.

The service was excellent. Our waitress was friendly and was always there when we needed her but did not hover. Parking is a little tough but a valet service is offered for about $6.00. We will be sure to return to this great restaurant.

“Great food & service”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

Had researched this place before leaving home. The menu looked wonderful & the prices were reasonable. Went there our first night in Boston & really enjoyed ourselves! The service was excellent & the food outstanding! My husband had the lamb shank & I tried the duck legs. Serving size on both were very large. Try the white Spanish wines to go with the meal - very nice. You will not leave this place hungry!

“Tasty!”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

Tapas restaurant with a wide variety of small portion "meals"...pick from a long menu---the fried shrimp are our favorite! Reasonable pricing; close to Green B-Line T---get off at Washington and it's across the street!
