Always a great dinner. It’s great to know the restaurant you’ve loved for years is so consistent! Gotta try the shrimp w/garlic sauce & white sangria. It’s a warm fuzzy feeling !

Tio Pepe's is a Baltimore favorite that doesn't disappoint. The wait staff was well prepared to answer any questions about the menu. The paella is a popular dish. It was beautifully presented and delicious.

Baltimore needs more restaurants like this — SUPERB cuisine in a wonderful atmosphere! Their paella is the best especially because the chorizo is AUTHENTIC. Superb service and enormous portions so prepare to bring some home (or to your hotel room's refrigerator!).

The appitizer "gambas al ajillo" was extremely good. Dinner, Rockfish with crab meat and Swordfish plentirful and excellent. No room for dessert, however, they looked delish.

Spanish flavor, fabulous food, old world charm. Must order sangria, puff potatoes & pine nut cake. Atmosphere in an old row house, many small rooms, cozy & romantic. Outstanding service & excellent food. I always leave this restaurant happy.

Sorry, but I don't know. The chef, however, is very knowledgeable and friendly, and I suspect he can help you with your gluten questions.
