  • "From the moment we walked in to the end of our evening our server Eddy was simple amazing. He is a true asset to the restaurant. It was my friends first time there and loved everything about our dining experience and will return with ours. The food, wine and staff are all wonderful. Would not hesitate to recommend"

  • "I've been to Spuntini's a number of times. Typically the service is decent and the food is good. This time however, things were very different. 1) When we got there, they couldn't find our reservation. Once they determined that they did indeed have a reservation we had to wait 20 mins to be seated. 2) Once seated, we waited another 15 mins before anyone came by for a drink order. 3) My wife wanted extra 'hummus' and we were told that they will have to see if the kitchen has any, this is their staple dip, why wouldn't they have it. Anyways, no one came by with it nor did they tell us that the were out. 4) The waiters were extremely rude and unhelpful. The last one ruined our evening and sparked this review."

  • "Dinner at Spuntini was the most disappointing. From the service to food and the table itself - all was a miss. Our table was right beside the wine, the water pitcher and cheese so they would swoop in right over us and take these heavy items right over our heads and not even mention it! It took 30 minutes to get the wine (had to ask again) and then when the appetizer came the only request of 'no peppers' was ignored and I got extra peppers. They argued and said they thought I meant cracked pepper instead of just going to re-make it. Then, when my main meal came out - it also had peppers! Our server was also never around. Our neighbour broke a glass and after 10 minutes, they got up to find someone to clean it. Waste of money, don't bother!"

  • "This was my first time and found the food were great & tasty. The waiter showed un-pleased when we told him that we were sharing the dinner among the 4 of us....I was with 3 ladies and they are not that hungry so I ordered 3 starters and 3 mains and he kept telling me there were only 3 mains ordered.... what a jerk!"

  • "We have dined here several times over the last couple of years...the food is consistently good. Portion sizes are small though, and always leave there feeling hungry despite having three courses. Should not have to fill up on bread to fill the stomach! Service is good, although the pacing of the meal is more like a chain restaurant than a dining experience. You can be finished in under 1 hour 15 minutes...would rather have a bit of a break between courses. The noise level of this restaurant is high, and once it is full it is hard to carry on a conversation without raising your voice. All the elements are there for this to be a great restaurant...it just falls short!"

  • "The best Penne alla Vodka .... I would return to Toronto just to dine at this restaurant!!!"

  • "Our server was clearly well versed in reading his guests. Our needs were anticipated but the service was never intrusive. It was just the right touch. We were so involved in our own romantic evening, we barely noticed the restaurant that was buzzing around us has almost emptied. It was the perfect evening, and we definitely chose the perfect spot to share it."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "Been coming here for many years and will keep coming back. Came with a group of girlfriends this time, and everyone loved their food - main course and dessert. The service was great...as it always is. Would recommend to everyone."

  • "The location is everything for this restaurant in the heart of Yorkville, near Bloor and Avenue Roads. Cosy atmosphere. Very solicitous wait crew. Very enjoyable food, well prepared. Adequate wine list."
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "Great food and service. Greeted warmly and treated as if we were long time guests. We felt well looked after through whole the meal and the staff seemed to know exactly when to check on us. Everyone's food was spot on and the portions were just right. We are already planning our next visit."

  • "excellent ambience. Food isi excllent, service excellent, desert superb!!! Wine list excellent. the only issue i have with this restaurant is that the front upper room is really cold in the winter time other than that, it was overall and excellent experience."

  • "I had dinner with a friend here on a Friday night, and it turned out to be an awful decision. The food was great, but the service was exceptionally bad enough to warrant never coming back. I had a reservation, but was seated 30 minutes late (and was told 3 times "it'll take 2 minutes"). I was charged for the wrong dessert, which was more expensive than what I ordered. My friend and I split the bill, but my credit card was charged twice and the waiter was annoyed that I asked him to cancel the charges and correct it. This place will become a "has been", which is a pity because the food is fantastic. There are too many other great Italian restaurants in Toronto for me to come back here and be treated poorly."

  • "Spuntini is our favorite restaurant in Toronto. It is reliable, consistant, staff are wonderful and the food is outstanding."

  • "We didn't know what to expect as we had not been there for years. It did not disappoint. Ou reservation was honored right on time and we were seated right away. Our waiter was quick, monitored us frequently and he had a great personality. The food was very good. My wife had a pasta and I had a veal, both bursting with flavour. And the pricing was reasonable. The only knock is considering it is a small space, diners are packed in and the noise level was a bit high. But it did not take away from an overall nice evening."

  • "Our reservation was for 9:30 but they overbooked or something for Valentine's Day and we didn't get seated until 10:40pm. Great food but a reservation is made for a reason and the fact we had to stand in line which was out the door and was very cold took away from what this restaurant."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I took my girlfriend here for Valentines day and as soon as we entered the restaurant we were treated with respect and felt very wanted. The food was fantastic although a little pricey it was overall well worth it. Our waiter god forbid neither of us can't remember his name was pleasant and warm, someone who I wish would serve us at any restaurant we went to. The scenery and environment like was very romantic and I definitely recommend this to restaurant to any couple looking for a night out!"

  • "Booked this on basis of previous Open Table reviews. Very pleasant spot. We had a nice table in the front verandah overlooking Avenue Road. The food was OK, if not outstanding. I ordered Veal Milanese which sounded very Italian but it came out as Wiener Schnitzel. (Fortunately, I happen to like Wiener Schnitzel, but think others who don't would have been disappointed). Generous portions. Service was quite slow between courses. OK if you are there to hold hands with your sweetie, but off-putting if you are hungry and chowing down on the bread. Very good and reasonable wine selection."

  • "My friends in Toronto give me a hard time because I always want to come here when I come to town (4 - 6 times a year). There are other restaurants in the city they tell me, and I do try other restaurants while here but why not go back to what you really like because I know I'm going to get great food and fab service.... All the time, every time and that is what's important. Give it a try, I promise it won't disappoint"

  • "We went to Spuntiini on New Years Eve and had a fabulous meal! The service was wonderful, and we look forward to going back! Sometimes on New Years Eve, things tend to slip in service and quality, but everything was beyond our expectations. We loved that the restaurant was "quaint" and yet comfortable. I recommend this restaurant highly! Enjoy."

  • "Booked our first visit to Spuntini after many years of intent. Should not have waited so long! Great food, superb service and excellent Italian wine. There is a reason why Spuntini has been a Toronto success story for so many years...they know the recipe for a great restaurant."

  • "Our waiter was lovely but a little slow. I loved my dish (linguini di mare), my date however was not that impressed with the lamb dish."
    Dined on 12/28/2013
  • "Food was sub-par. Seafood salad appetizer seemed like it was assembled from the frozen section at a grocery store. Lobster ravioli filling tasted processed. The restaurant was also quite cold. Wine was good as usual."

  • "A group of 12 of us went to Spuntini to celebrate my husbands birthday. The staff were very accommodating...I increased our guest list twice the day before :) The server was very knowledgable, advising wine pairings and specials of the day. They brought out a tirimisu with a candle in it for my husbands birthday...so nice. The food was amazing! I recommend the four chesse gnocci! This is the second birthday celebration we had at Spuntini and will definately plan another group event there soon!"

  • "I just want to start with saying, what Italian restaurant runs out of Pizza dough? That is like going to a sushi restaurant and saying their our of rice. My boyfriend and I took our friends for their engagement present, and it was slightly embarrassing. We all ended ordering pasta, as we didn't have a choice, and they were delicious. We all enjoyed our meal but it was a big turn off that they didnt have any pizza dough. At such a high end restaurant, they should probably think ahead!"

  • "The service was great from the moment we sat down. The staff were very accomodating with our guest's dietary restrictions. Everyone enjoyed their meal and the wine list was impressive. A cozy ambiance and a variety of items on the menu."

  • "This restaurant was referred to me by a friend so I thought I would enjoy it. The waiters were not that friendly - that just made me feel uncomfortable....when I asked if the gnocci was homemade, I was told it wasn't. That was dissapointing. My husband asked for something "hot/spicy" and was told nothing on the menu fits the description. We both ordered a wood-burning pizza that was "okay" but nothing special. I was expecting a Margarita Pizza with BIG tomatos, basil etc but it was lacking. The dessert was tiramisu - homemade and this was the best part of the meal. Perhaps our dining experience would have been better if we had ordered different items. However, I won't be returning because the staff were just too cold and unfriendly."

  • "I have been to Spuntini three times in the last three months after being introduced to it by a coworker. It has a very classy but inviting feel. Try the spaghetti amore and you will definitely want to go back."
    Dined on 11/13/2013
  • "Spuntini often gets overlooked because of the wildly successfull Sotto Sotto beneath it. Many people end up at Spuntini after not being able to get into Sotto Sotto and end up devoted customers. The food is uniformly great and the service attentive."
