This is a great place for lunch or dinner with friends. The Spanish theme is fun and charming, the service is great, and everything I've eaten there is delicious. The outdoor area is the best in the area, in a shaded courtyard.

Started with a few tapas and a pitcher of sangria. It met with our high expectations. It was so good that ordered a total of eight tapas. All exceeded our expectations for flavor and quantity of food. The calamari was fantastic. We’ll be back.

It had been some time since my last visit to Tapas Gitano. And, in true form, still one of the best authentic Spanish tapas style resto’s in the Chicago area. Proper pricing, portion sizes, a wine list that compliments, great service. They have it all....More

Food and service is authentic…Spanish! We ordered a lot of different dishes and each one was better than the previous one. I recommend trying their sweets too. Our waiter had unique sense of humor but was very nice and helpful.

The diverse menu has a number of gluten free tapas. Everything we had was delicious with flavors enough to make you salivate. The two of us had 5 tapas which, for us, was too much food. Recommend you order a couple of cold tapas as...More
