My plate of calamares al ajillo, or calamari sauteed with garlic, was the best calamari I've ever had. If you've ever thought of calamari as rubbery, La Curva will change your mind. The calamari were tender, and as the name of the dish suggests, there was plenty of garlic--but not so much that I could taste it for the next two days. All of the plates are huge, include rice and beans, and most everything is under $10.
