Amazing atmosphere, food, service, and sangria. We've enjoyed every minute, live music was out of this world, food was amazing especially the octopus! Will definitely visit again.

Alexandria, Virginia has many good restaurants with live performances, outdoor seating, and a good food. For the evening where food is not the main attraction but rather liver performance is sought - the La Tasca is one of the best. We went as a group for about 30 people for a special occasion. Performance started at about 8 o'clock in... More

We found this restaurant by chance and are so glad we did! Other than a very large party that included some tired children, the ambience was great. Great sangria, wonderful tapas choices for a vegan and a vegetarian!

Tasty tapas, good selection and portions, great happy hour deals, and many different types of sangria to choose from. We had a table next to the bar and had great service. Our only disappointment is that we missed the flamenco show.

If you like Spanish style tapas this is the place to go. The service was wonderful and the tapas were delicious. And by the way the sangria was pretty tasty too! We missed the live music as we were there early but the ambiance was very nice. Try it out!
