This was our first time at Vino Loco. We sat outside so I still have never been IN there, LOL If ever asked, I would go back there in a second. This is typically not my first choice of restaurant but I liked it. Coffee was served individually "for one", on a plate which I gave it back! LOL Prices... More

Glad you enjoyed your first visit to Vino Loco. Mother's Day is our last brunch of,the season. We'll start again the first Sunday in Nobenber. When you return, feel free to roam our wine and gift shop. We always have new selections like our wonderful olive oils from Puglia, Italy that just arrived. More

I am almost embarrassed to only say thank you. We are very lucky to have the talented staff we do. They all work very hard to please. And having one of the very best chefs ever makes it very special. Please ask for me when you next visit us for a complimentary dessert or wine. And again, thank you. More

My daughter and I stopped here to cool off and have a drink during a shopping trip in Old Englewood. We sat at the bar and the Bar Girl was very friendly. We ended up having a mixed drink made with Vermouth. This was new for me. The shop is very cozy with outside seating and a few indoor tables.... More

Glad you enjoyed your visit and the Vermouth. We serve Perucchi, a Spanish Vermouth made with 32 botanicals. It's kind of a cult Vermouth we discovered in New York. Hope to see you and your daughter again. More

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....
