Vino Wine and Tapas Room first opened its doors on August 27, 2007 as the culinary vision of its owner Alla Volk. Before making its name, Vino was a small falafel restaurant sold by a family friend. After seeing something no one else saw, and despite all the opposition, Alla opened the restaurant as the first real Spanish tapas barin the San Fernando Valley.
After an inspired trip to Spain, she made a firm decision: to bring Tapas with her. Eight years later, Vino has become a staple of authentic and traditional Spanish tapas, as well as a modern hub for wine lovers and connoisseurs. Mrs. Wolf still owns arestaurant.
