My husband and I were looking for a tapas place so we can try a variety of foods. Cravings menu was a perfect choice. We shared 5 dishes. The crab stuffed avocado, crab cakes, croquettes, empanadas and the flank steak, were perfect choices. Everything was flavorful. The crab cakes had a hint of coconut flavor which was delightful. The flank steak was served with creamed spinach & truffle fries — the steak was so tender, the spinach was delicious and the truffle fries were the best I’ve ever had. We truly enjoyed every bite & can’t wait to go back. In addition to the amazing flavor, the service was perfect!

They have a nice selection of small plates, many large enough to share. Service is friendly and low-key. Hard table tops and floor create a lot extra noise when the restaurant is full, which it wasn't during our visit. The food and value were very good.

We just really loved it. The service and overall "vibe" was great. We sat at the outdoor tables on the sidewalk so I cannot really speak to the volume inside, but our location was ideal. Some dishes were excellent - empanadas, grilled octopus, short rib gnocchi, etc. and all were solidly good. Oddly, we did not love the meatballs which got a lot of awards which is why we tried them. They were good for sure - just not as good as the other dishes which were exceptional. Wonderful wait staff - attentive, friendly, wonderful.

We went on a sunny Sunday at 5pm and it was not crowded. We tried a number of items including the Fried Calamari, the Croquettas, the Tapas Tour (we picked the Eggplant Parmesan, the Mussels with Chorizo [my wife's favorite], the Gambas al Ajillo), the Truffle Fries with Parmesan, the Smoked Pork Shoulder Empanadas, the Grilled Salmon with Saffron Risotto (my favorite!), and the Kids Pizza. Everything was delicious. What the kids found spectacular (because of the cotton candy) was the Zeppole Tree, which we split for dessert. A creative simple touch to the whole experience!

Made a reservation on open table 1 hour before reservation. Loved the small plates. Nice, varied selection of tapas that are flavorful and nicely prepared. Loved the garlic shrimp, grilled skirt steak tapas, octopus.
The interior is charming, the service was superb
