In Philly for one night and we enjoyed an unexpectedly delicious meal at Tinto. We had an early-ish family dinner in the basement dining room which was quiet and intimate. Anthony provided great service - patient, knowledge and engaging. We enjoyed every aspect of the...More

I was surprised to find vegan and vegetarian items on the menu in a Spanish restaurant. It was good. The ambient was sexy and the wine was excellent. Loved the service.

The amontillado-based negroni made with sherry, a house-made vermouth and Aperol was especially WOW--if you're a negroni fan, don't miss...More

Although the courses are small, they are delicious. The waiter recommended to choose a variety of dishes, more like tapa sizes, which we did. My favorite was the pork paella. A different experience in paella. Delicious!

Tinto is a Jose Garces gem! The chef's tasting menu helps make unregrettable decisions that will more than satisfy! The wine pairing is well curated and will not disappoint! I've been here several times, and can't recommend it more!
