Like voluntary tasings and constructive criticism, some meals are best when delivered in small doses. Snack in stride with this Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Spanish and Moroccan cuisine at La Casa Tapas and Wine Bar.

Owner and chef Omar Mediouni imbues La Casa Tapas and Wine Bar's menu of traditional Spanish and Moroccan small plates and entrees with local ingredients and an appetite for culinary fusion that, according to Pittsburgh City Paper, "combines sophistication and comfort, authenticity and simplicity." Flagpole-addicted tongues warm up with a choice of 16 hot tapas, including the chorizo catalan's spicy sautéed sausage and spinach in a red-wine reduction ($10), and tomatoes, sweet pepper, and eggplant form the base of a duo of Moroccan dips ($8 each). Larger entrees ($16–$28) sneak garbanzo beans, chicken, lamb, and eggplant into piles of couscous or saffron paella rice like parents tucking Easter eggs into an egg carton.

Nestled within a brick house along a neighborhood street in Shadyside, La Casa Tapas and Wine Bar greets springtime by opening its patio to warm breezes and showers of cupid arrows. Inside, a hanging Spanish guitar, lanterns lit by candles, and the wide grin of a bright red hearth contribute to a cozy, eclectic spirit. Diners may leisurely graze of meals and conversation by the reflective charms of the restaurant's outdoor pond.

This quaint eatery on Ellsworth is full of vibrant waiters and bartenders, succulent food, and cozy atmosphere.

By far, my favorites were the octopus, ratatouille, and sauteed shrimp but most everything was very good.
