Aioli Bodega Española, also known just as Aioli by locals, is a Spanish restaurant located on a trendy block of Midtown Sacramento. Tapas are served here, either inside the elegant restaurant or on the intimate garden patio, which features a bubbling fountain and live guitar music (Thursdays and Fridays). The menu includes true Spanish-style tapas such as a charcuterie plate with Iberian ham, patatas bravas, gambas al ajillo (shrimp cooked in garlic, white wine, and olive oil), and beef short ribs with an orange mole and saffron rice. Aioli also serves paella for two and delicious desserts. Large groups can be accommodated in a separate seating area inside. Aioli is open daily from 11:00 a.m. and serves lunch and dinner.
