Encasa is consistently good. Decent service, portions are a little small but the food is fantastic. The potatoes are always nice, as is the pizza, mushrooms, and chorizo. The sangria is beautiful, as always. I will always recommend Encasa for tapas.

Thanks for your query. We are BYO for bottled wine only, corkage is $10 per bottle. We are fully licensed and our wine list has some great Spanish and South American wines at very reasonable prices.
