Scan the reviews below and find a night to go. As many have said, the food is fresh, with wonderful flavors, and many unusual choices. My wife and I happened upon this little place two years ago during our annual sojourn to Florida and come back at least weekly while we are here. Not enough has been said of their... More

Thanks so much for the kind comments about our establishment. We have hard working and talented staff who always aim to please our guests. One minor correction, though. We are not open for Breakfast, but do serve a fantastic Brunch on Sunday's, 11-4, November through Mother's Day. More

We stopped at Vino Loco for lunch after visiting the Englewood Farmers Market. The wine selection was huge...but that was expected. The food offerings were plentiful and varied. Reasonably priced between $8-$10... and delicious! The shrimp was outstanding!

We're always looking to serve our customers with the highest quality service. We'll be sure to look into that issue for you. As for the lighting, we have a romantic patio, particularly on the left edge. Mostly though, folks don't have problems seeing the menu or check. As for value, our tapas are more than just little bites. The seared... More

My wife and I have gone there twice. The presentations of the food are outstanding. The staff is a pleasant group. The desert of a mix of cheesecake and angle food cake is truly delicious.
