    Italian food with an Indian flair, makes it unique, delicious and fun! We shared 1 selection from each course. 36-layer lasagna, not a typo! Delicious, but my favorite was the Maiale- pork cheek! Wow! Great experience!

    We absolutely LOVE Spuntino! The food is incredibly delicious, fresh, and unique - we love the changing seasonal menu and the unexpected flavor combinations. The restaurant's vibe is cozy and comfortable. And their staff are just the most welcoming and attentive we've ever had the pleasure of working with.

    The food never misses - everything is delicious but some things are definitely more delicious than others. John is the best server in the world who takes the time to explain menu items, favorite drinks, and openly recommends the best of the best. Spuntino has quickly become my wife and I’s favorite place in Denver simply because of the warm atmosphere, amazing people, and quality food that can’t be found anywhere else.

    One of the best restaurants in Denver! Feel so lucky to live close to this spot and grateful for their hard work to persevere through COVID. Chef creates and curates the food with such thoughtfulness and care. I especially love their elk tartare and her commitment to goat always being on the menu. The infusion of Indian spices and techniques into the food is unique and incredibly delicious! John is an attentive and kind server. Only the best at Spuntino...from front to back of house, it all excels and delights!! Thank you Spuntino team!!

    So, after waiting months and months, I finally got a 5:45 reservation at Spuntino. All the hype for this restaurant and honestly we were not impressed. The food is par mediocre, and there was no Indian flavors from the fusion part of the cuisine. I ordered the chef’s soecial pasta And I honestly thought it was spicy marinara sauce tossed in capellini. The appetizers are really good and if anything I would go there for just appetizers. The drinks were very mediocre. No flavor. My husband ordered olio pasta and he was not impressed. I did not understand what the purpose of the egg in his pasta was because it does not add any flavor. Instead, it makes the dish worse . Overall one of the most disappointing experiences of our life.

    I cannot rave enough about this spot! Everything and I mean everything was absolutely delicious. The service was 5 star. We walked in a few minutes early and the hostess was lovely and got us drinks while we waited and offered spot on suggestions. The table we were supposed to sit at had a group that was “camping” and as politely as possible they were trying to move them along. It looked like they had paid their check at least 30 minutes before our reservation and were just having a great time and didn’t want to leave, which I completely understand. Absolutely get the focaccia with the garlic and trust your server. We made a mistake and bounced to another restaurant for dessert and after dinner cocktails and we should have stayed. The other place was awful. The service was bleh and it made us miss this restaurant even more with the awesome vibe and personalities.

    We had a great dinner at Sputino. The burrrata and house made ricotta with foccia were delicious. We had lasagna and chicken for entrees. Both were excellent. The half chicken was more than enough for 2 people. Our waiter was excellent - very helpful with the menu and wine. Definitely will return.

    Such a unique blend of Asian and Italian. The flavors are outstanding. The quality of the pasta, proteins, and other ingredients help the dishes shine. The drinks perfectly compliment the dishes. There were times where sitting downwind of the door caused me to feel cold when the door opened, but not every time. The seating is such that the noise can sometimes mute the service staff, so I needed to ask for clarification. We will definitely return! The menu has so much more we want to explore.

    We couldn’t say enough amazing things about this place! Matthew was our wonderful waiter who made my husbands birthday above and beyond! Everything ordered was delicious. We started with the gin drinks. Surprisingly the matcha honey gin combo was excellent, as Matthew advised it would Be! The olives and focaccia with ricotta and garlic appetizers are a must. We ordered the insalata which was 9/10. The Arancinj risotto balls were to die for with the best lime crema sauce. Onto the meals, the scallops with wheat berries and mushrooms was EXCELLENT- just a bigger plate than I realized and by this point I was so full! My husband usually doesn’t love pesto and tried the tagliatelle with pesto to give it another chance and absolutely loved it. Matthew brought us a lemoncello shot and rich chocolate dessert as a treat. We cannot wait to come back for new local flavors on their rotating menu!

    Fantastic in every way. This cozy, neighborhood restaurant serves the most delicious Focaccia bread with ricotta cheese, pastas, and desserts. The wine list is very good and has many well-priced bottles of wine to compliment any type of food. Our server, Lindsay, was knowledgeable, friendly and really elevated our experience. I had the Tagliatelle with pesto and pistachios and I am looking forward to returning and ordering this again. My husband had the seafood pasta special and it too was excellent. This is a Not To Miss restaurant!

    All 4 of us ordered different entrées, and all were delicious. The arancini appetizer was perfect, and the cilantro-lime crema makes you want to forget manners and just lick the plate. 😋 Service here is always amazing, and our server on this night was very helpful in helping us choose our wines.
