Food was good, interesting flavours which are not 100% Spanish cuisine, too many sauces. 8$ for 2 mushroom croquetas is totally overpriced!!!!! The rest was more reasonable. Good service. Nice live music!

Tasca is always a good time! I feel it is often compared to Barcelona, which is much more aesthetically pleasing but also more expensive. If you are looking for a nice place to get tapas with friends at a reasonable price--look no further

This is a solid, affordable choice to share a better than average Tapas meal with friends/family/ or your student at BC. Not exactly within walking distance but a short taxi/Uber ride from campus. We dined here at the suggestion of our Air B&B host who...More

Tasca is a comfortable, sound tapas restaurant. Not catering to the upwardly mobile hipster, it serves good small plates. We had the usuals: patatas bravas, tomato bread, croquettes, shrimp, olives, and chicken skewers. All were flavorful. Go here for easy-going food and sangria.

This is one of the worst restaurant experiences I have ever had. We booked a birthday dinner celebration on the basis of "4 stars" from a rival review app. The seafood paella was almost inedible with the rice suffused with a cacophony of clashing flavors....More

Tasca has been around since 1995 and over the years has won an abundance of accolades including Best Romantic, Best affordable and Best Tapas Restaurant in Boston. We are best known for being the best romantic affordable restaurant in the Brighton/Allston /Brookline area. All our 36 tapas are priced below $10, most being in the $5 to $8 price point. We are famous for our paellas, offering three….a seafood, a vegetarian and a meat option. All are priced under $20 and perfect for sharing. We also have 12 other entrees, all priced under $20. The great thing about a Tapas restaurant is that you can graze on many small dished and share among friends, or dine in the traditional way of an appetizer and entrée. All diets are accommodated as we have lots of vegetarian options and even have a gluten free menu. We offer daily seasonal specials, 20 craft beers, an extensive wine list comprising mostly of Spanish wines… starting at only $19 a bottle. We always offer a white, pink pomegranate and our famous red sangria by the glass or pitcher. What sets up apart is the vibe. We have no televisions. Our clientele is either young and hip or young at heart. Every Sunday we have a classical guitarist and occasionally we have live flamenco shows. Tasca is perfect for large and small parties alike as we have something to fit everybody's taste. Getting to Tasca is easy as we are located on Commonwealth Ave, half way between BC and BU. We are on the GREEN LINE (Washington Street Stop) and offer $6 valet parking.
