Vino Loco is such a great tapas bar and just the sort of place that makes Englewood's Dearborn Street a special place to visit. Enjoying a good class of wine with yummy tapas is the place to go to with friends.

We visited this restaurant while at our vacation home in Rotonda. We fancied something a little different to the large chains that can be found in Port Charlotte and we weren't disappointed. We were a party of 4 and reserved a table on Friday 25th...More

Fresh ingredients, original recipes of the resident chef, who is fantastic. This is a wine and a Tapas bar with outside seating and live music some evenings. The wine selection is nice and service outstanding.

I've NEVER had a bad meal or a bad experience. Chef Katrina is imaginative and always prepares a great meal. The staff is as friendly as can be, and very knowledgeable as well.

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.

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.
