There have been three other restaurant on this site in the past few years, none of them memorable. We were there last week and without a reservation we had to wait 40 minutes for a table. The music was a bit loud but the service was extremely courteous. The bread tasted home baked, the wine list with good Spanish and a dash of Portuguese vintages (even Setubal, a wonderful dessert wine). All our food, cheese, salami, chicken and ham, scallops were 1st quality.
Because we waited so long for a table we were given a token for a free tapas for our next visit, which will happen before too long. This is a real asset for the neighborhood and a cut above the other tapas bars in Brighton/Brookline.
