Tasca Tasca Portuguese Tapas Restaurant and Wine Bar

Light-hearted sibling to LaSalette Restaurant serves small plates at great rates just off Sonoma Plaza.

A tavernlike restaurant with contemporary yet nostalgic decor, Tasca Tasca specializes in Portuguese small plates and wines. A younger sibling to chef Manuel Azevedo’s nearby LaSalette Restaurant, Tasca Tasca delivers polished cuisine in a light-hearted setting. (Tasca means “tavern” in Portuguese.)

Cheese, Garden, Sea, Land, and Sweet

Azevedo divides his menu into five categories—cheese, garden, sea, land, and sweet. Caldo verde, Portugal’s national soup, made from potatoes, kale, and sausage, provides a thick and hearty introduction. Bacalhau (salt cod cakes), goat stew with fingerling potatoes, a marvelous smoked duck breast, and linguiça caseira (pork sausage) rank among the many other solid choices.

Smoked duck breast, ceviche, caldo verde, and four other tapas-style items at Tasca Tasca.

Tasca Tasca Pit Stop

With plates you can order in groupings of three, five, or seven, TT works equally well as a midafternoon pit stop, casual dinner spot, or late-night noshery. Some dishes with expensive ingredients (crab in a puff pastry, for instance, or steak tartare) cost a few dollars additional.

Desserts and Port

Tasca Tasca’s desserts include olive oil ice cream, a chocolate sea salt tart, and apple Vinho Verde sorbet. Vinho Verde is a light Portuguese wine released just a few months after harvest. Afterward, you can settle into a well-aged port.

Many Tasca Tasca patrons finish a meal with a well-aged port.


Just off Sonoma Plaza, Tasca Tasca is near three of the tasting rooms in Sonoma Pinot Noir Day Trip.
