An out-of-town friend and I visited Tinto during restaurant week. The food was delicious, the service excellent and the atmosphere conducive to an intimate chat even though the dining room was packed. Very enjoyable experience.

We had a great evening at Tinto. The atmosphere feels like a rustic wine cellar. Very cozy! The server recommended we get 3 to 5 tapas each. We decided on 2 each which was plenty of food. We didn't even finish everything because we were...More

This Spanish style tapas place has an interesting menu and quick service. My grandson is a hotdog man so he played video games, but his sister, mom, dad, and I loved the food. I'd go again.

We dined at Tinto on a busy Saturday night. We were seated promptly at our reservation time and the atmosphere was lively but not so loud to preclude conversation. The food was excellent, with particular recommendations for the paella, octopus and sangria.

Ate here almost 10 years ago when the place first opened and I'm glad to report tinto has not lost its edge. Wonderful ambience, great service, and sublime meticulously made tapas. My favorite non cheese steak place in philly!

Amelia gave us some good suggestions and the duck confit was delicious, as were the beets and wild boar ragout. The tapas were top notch, very creative and the service was superb. Delicious dinner.

Chosen for a birthday celebration, it couldn't have been better. We selected a variety of menu offerings and shared. Portions were generous and service was very good. A bonus was that we arrived during "happy hour" and enjoyed lots of sangria!

You get two glasses of wine - one white with the appetizer and one red with the rest. I prefer full bodied red wine, so in retrospect I might have passed on the white, although the it was good white. It is $35 for the... More
