Excellent Tapas, Sangria and Paella. Loved it!! Service was very friendly too! We tried several Tapa dishes and enjoyed each one. The Sangria was a pitcher of Sangria. The ice and fresh fruit was brought in the serving glasses also filled with Sangria giving you an excellent value for the pitcher. Can't wait to go back.

Stopped by for a quick bite to eat. Decent Tapas and tasty sangria. Will say drinks were a little small. Friendly staff.

So we gobbled tapas, paella, mussels, clams, chorizo & sangria like we used to do in Madrid. Seriously yum. Waitstaff gentle, delightful and gracious. Splendid lunch. Very hard not to over-indulge.

Pasadena whilst a really nice town isn't the liveliest of places at the best of times. Weekdays it is quiet everywhere however at weekends it livens up a little bit. To be honest I think the locals prefer it that way so at weekends if you want a little bit of action and atmosphere this is going to be one... More

We went during a weekday, which may explain the quiet vibe. Nonetheless, the seating arrangement is super relaxing with the comfy sofas found all over the establishment. In regards to the tapas, I loved the meatballs and the calimari, In addition, I enjoyed the sangria as well. When I am looking for a sport bar, I will return here, the... More

I used to go to Villa Sorriso regularly, but now it's closed and the menu is served at Bar Celona. Little known fact - they have a back patio on the alley behind the restaurant. A great choice on a warm day in SoCal.
