One of our favorite restaurants in the city, Tinto is an intimate wine bar and tapas restaurant that was the first in Philadelphia to showcase the authetic tastes of the Basque country, the coastal and mountainous region that is located between France and Northeastern Spain.

 Tinto features pintxos (the Basque equivalent of tapas), charcuterie, cheeses, mariscos (shellfish), brochettes (skewers) and bocadillos (sandwiches). Large plate entrees are available, and everything is designed for sharing. Tinto is Basque slang for red wine, and features 80 varieties of Spanish wine.
