Just ‘found’ this place. It’s a new location in S Mpls - they moved. Excellent meal— portions a bit small for the price; however, very tasty! Will come here again.

We stopped by for a quick dinner on the way to theater. Place was not completely full but had a good number of people. I saw that most of them were locals. I likes floor plan with different areas of sitting and big bar. Lighting...More

I liked the ambience, but the food was super average. Not flavorful at all. Waitstaff was lacking and inattentive, and seemingly disorganized and distracted. They need their liquor license.

We went for lunch on my birthday. The restaurant has moved to 50th & Penn Ave. It's a cozy place with an outdoor patio for warmer weather. The food was delicious but a bit over-priced for the portions. Good beer and wine list too.

Good food, very comfortable and family friendly. Tacos and guacamole were really good. Also a good beer and wine selection. Note: They have moved to their new location on 50th street in Minneapolis.

Wow! Loved this place. Stopped in for brunch on a Sunday morning - empty - not a good sign. Boy, was I wrong. Everything was exceptional, including the food, service and decor. Since the place was empty we had plenty of time to chat with...More

We live just a few blocks away and Tinto is one of our favorites for brunch and happy hour snacks. Especially fond of the breakfast chilequiles and bloody Marias (brunch menu) and the ceviche with plantain chips and the nachos (appies). The staff there is...More
