If you like tapas, aka small plates, and good wine this is the place for you. Los of choices, including vegan offerings, made with fresh ingredients. Friendly vibe, this is a spot where you will find many locals. Definitely a must stop.

We were walking by on a Sunday morning and just stopped in for brunch. We were lucky to get a table; reservations are definitely recommended. The menu was not big, but there was a good enough variety that we had no trouble selecting something. Everything, both food and service, was excellent. And the atmosphere of sitting outside on a nice... More

With the Chef Katrina on board, the variety on the menu is expanded and wonderful. The home-made soups are fabulous, a good start! We had the Crab Coquettas, the Chicken-Leek with Rice soup, the Lemon Moroccan Chicken on salad, and the Charcuterie plate with almonds and olives- YUM!!! Great house wine too- and a tasting of today's special pour. Make... More

There is a great selection of tapas items, at this small restaurant ( make a reservation, if you want to sit on the patio). Choices range from lemon chicken salad, mushrooms in a sauce with toasted baguette, crab croquettes, grilled shrimp, hummus with tortilla chips and vegies, artisanal cheese and meat plates, almonds, marinated olives, etc. Last time we were...

Hard to pick a place on Dearborn where the choices are plentiful. But, this is a gem. The wine selections were ample for us and the menu offered many selections. We were there twice this week and sampled aperitifs, and Italian white wines that were reasonably priced, chilled to perfection and matched our food selections of delicious grilled shrimp, pate's...

In downtown historic Englewood, Fl., Vino Loco is our favorite stop for a glass of wine and an appetizer or lunch where we can sit outside (or in side), enjoy the weather and whatever is happening in town. They also have a great Sunday brunch, but make reservations! Great wait staff, special wines of the day, from Spain, and delicious... More

An unpretentious place with GREAT food. Two couples trying as much of the menu as we could. Started with glasses of cava while we pondered how many dishes we could consume. Start with a few and then reorder. Charcuterie platter, salmon, marinated olives, white anchovies and wonderfully crusted bread. What fun. We ate like the condemned and enjoyed every mouthful....

We have eaten at Vino Loco many times. We have returned often because the food is fresh and delicious. And, they have many excellent wines available by the glass or bottle. The servers are friendly and knowledgeable about wine. There is also a little wine shop available with wine to buy and take home. They also have a nice selection... More

Last year I brought a friend here for lunch after passing by several times and wanting to try it out. We had an amazing tapas lunch and a nice glass of wine. I was so happy to finally find somewhere in the area with food of this quality and not a large plate piled with too much food. I couldn't... More

Thanks for the compliments! We have learned that high quality, well prepared food is always more satisfying. All our wines are hand selected by our Sommelier and represent some of the best values in our area. Hope to see you again. More

Who could ask for anything more? Oh ya the staff is stellar as well! We love this place anytime of the year, even more on the First Saturday of the month. Why you ask, Englewood hosts a downtown cruise in, it is a spectacular car show and parade.

As featured in Coastal Living and Harbor Style Magazines, Vino Loco is more than a restaurant.

Chef Katrina prepares exciting gourmet fare which change weekly. Our upscale but casual atmosphere is conducive to relaxing, whether inside or on our outdoor patio. Enjoy a glass of wine from our extensive pour list! Take home a chilled bottle from our cooler or a yummy red from the retail wine and gift shop. Be sure to check our website for Wine Tastings, Dinners and other exciting events. Our Catering Service offers an array of scrumptious dishes prepared just for you by our highly skilled staff.
