Tapas Bar on the Commons

Just a Taste is a great tapas bar tucked into an old building on the Ithaca Commons. It has tasty tapas and a good wine selection for an affordable price. Dessert is good, too. I think that it's the only place to get tapas near Cornell or Ithaca College, so it's kind of a rarity in the area.

Parking is easy, but check for a reservation on busy nights.
