Casa Urola only relatively recently amped up their pintxo offerings, but this old town spot has long been a hidden gem and favorite of the locals.  It's the type of place where there's no wrong choice, where the menu changes daily, where produce comes directly from the producer, not from a distributor.  Their pintxos are incredible (and a great way to enjoy their cuisine on the cheap).
