Vino Tapas & Wine Bar Restaurant Review

: This cozy, somewhat romantic tapas bar with a huge selection of wines by the glass is a welcome discovery on Ventura Boulevard. The menu offers classic Spanish small plates such as potato croquetas, empanadas and patatas bravas with garlicky aïoli, plus fun items like bacon-wrapped dates stuffed with blue cheese. Larger plates include filet mignon and paella. The wine list is global, with South Africa, Argentina and Australia more than just an afterthought, and, of course, many worthy labels from Spain. In addition, nearly everything on the list is poured by the glass. The sangría is also very popular. For something sweet, there’s flan or bread pudding, and a nice cheese plate, too, to help finish off that bottle of Tempranillo.
