Somerville’s elaborately decorated Spanish stronghold glitters and glows, shimmers and shines. From the lace curtains to the tiled bar, where the owners’ wooden pig statue has kept watch on patrons since the place opened more than 25 years ago, this is a sexy place for traditional, solid if not swoon-generating tapas. Gambas al ajillo (sizzling shrimp and garlic) and pulpo a’feira (grilled octopus) are among the many popular plates backed up by an exceptional list of wines and sherries, and great sangria.
