Description: Tapa The World opened in May of 1994 and is owned by brother and sister Paul Ringstrom and Conni Levis. Both owners spent time in Spain during their college years, studying Spanish and taking in as much of the local culture as they were able to on student's budget. Paul's educational background (he earned his bachelor's degree from Cornell's Hotel/Restaurant Management School) coupled with his love of the Spanish life-style brought him back to Spain in 1990, where he opened a Tex-Mex restaurant off the Gran Via in Madrid. Meanwhile, Conni earned an M.B.A. from San Francisco State University and moved to Sacramento in 1992. The concept for the restaurant evolved during many late night conversations between the two owners, until Paul finally returned to the states in 1993, eager to open the first Spanish restaurant in Sacramento. It is our goal to provide the food, wine, music, and dance of Spain in an atmosphere that is warm, welcoming and fun. We encourage our guests to linger over their conversations, to invite their friends, and above all, to feel "bienvenido" each time they visit.

Our family ordered a little bit of everything from the appetizer menu. You'll go through lots of bread, but worth it. Tortilla, mushrooms, dipping sauce, paella and Fritos bravos were great. I'm going back!

They have the best Chicken salad in this City. Lots of greens with roasted chicken and s good dressing. The bread is excellent with a 'dipping' savory sauce made with balsamic vinegar, lots of garlic and olive oil.

I have been there for lunch and dinner but not going back. I think the food isn't very good, served too cold and slowly. Some guests really like this but I am not one of them. With so many great restaurants from which to choose, I will opt for others.

My son and I had some tapas here on a quiet Saturday afternoon. The sherry was good. The olives excellent, but I don't think Spanish. A tortilla (Spanish one with potatoes) was quite nice, the cheese ok, and calamari just a but greasy but good. Oh chicken strips also good. It was too much for us to eat, and came to about 50 bucks, which I guess is a lot for what we thought would be a light lunch. Oh well, still recommend the place.

The perfect meal. Not too filling. Wonderful tapas. If you are lucky live music to Sierra de your meal. Breads and oils. Salads and tapas. Mint tea to begin with. A wonderful meal.
