This cute, colorful Harvard Square haven isn’t fancy, but the setting—in a 19th-century bow-front building—is charming and the varied Venezuelan menu exudes authenticity and passion. Tuck into savory empanadas and arepas at wooden tables in the low-lit dining room, which retains its original tin walls, or settle into a summer evening on the secluded back patio. Either way, it’s the perfect prelude to a romantic flick at that date-night staple, the Brattle Theatre.
