Stopped by for a quick bite to eat. Decent Tapas and tasty sangria. Will say drinks were a little small. Friendly staff.

So we gobbled tapas, paella, mussels, clams, chorizo & sangria like we used to do in Madrid. Seriously yum. Waitstaff gentle, delightful and gracious. Splendid lunch. Very hard not to over-indulge.

I used to go to Villa Sorriso regularly, but now it's closed and the menu is served at Bar Celona. Little known fact - they have a back patio on the alley behind the restaurant. A great choice on a warm day in SoCal.
