Spuntino Wine Bar & Italian Tapas set out with the goal of introducing a wonderful breadth of world-class international wine that is paired with an expansive Italian, small plate menu. Our wine list and food menu are thoughtfully prepared and selected by a team that strives to introduce our guests to new, fresh Italian flavors.

Spuntino focuses on fresh, local and seasonal ingredients with a menu that changes four times a year. To make sure that we are using the best ingredients available we work closely with a number of farms in the area including Goffle Farm Poultry (Wyckoff, NJ), Blooming Hill Farms (Monroe, NY), and Alps Provisions (Long Island City, NY).

Wine is Spuntino’s second name! With over 50 wines by the glass, over 150 by the bottle, four wines on tap, and three wine flights offered daily, Spuntino really does have something for everyone.

The food was very good and that is saying a lot coming from an Italian woman who is very critical of Italian restaurants! I do think however that the $24 cheese board was not substantial enough for the price. Our server was great and we had a lovely time.

The food was horrible. Like it was either reheated or microwaved food. My wine was awful. Waiter was good though. They swapped out my wine and didn't charge me for the first one. Atmosphere was ok. But overall, because of the low quality food, this soured me on the place and I feel it's definitely not value for money.

We had a reservation and the table was not ready when we arrive but we were treated with the utmost courtesy offered a glass of wine while we waited. Once seated our table was perfectly located and the service was great. The food while did not blow us away was very good. I will definitely be back and recommend this place to friends.

Enjoyed the food and had very good service. However, it was cold in the room we were seated at. The waitress indicated the head didn’t work so well in this room, but they ‘cranked’ it up in the other room and it should start to warm up. It really didn’t. They should try to fix this.

I read an article saying this place was the one to go for Valentine’s day this year and they were right! The decoration is beautiful service was excellent and the food AMAZING but the red wine Sangria was too watery. I will definitely be coming back again and giving the Sangria another try. Also the apple, walnut, gorgonzola bruschetta is to die for!

I don't know where to start... I made a reservation on open-table for 8:30 pm. we were there at 8:25. the host who welcomed us was very friendly and professional. we waited for three or four minutes. while i was making my resevation, i asked for a table which is not in the center. i was amazed that they really read and cared about what i wanted. our table was right next to the kitchen. i know it may sound bad but i am telling you it was one of the best table in there. the kitchen was working in silence, they were clean and organized and it was quite nice to see how they were working. we ordered half liter of cabernet sauvignon, cherry manhattan, calamari, bruschetta and dried tomato & mozzarella salad. they were all starters of course :) the portions were small, but our waiter (peter) told us that in advance. however this place offers you a little of everything. it seems small but the joy & the taste were big :) i got bolognese, my boyfriend got fig pizza. the pizza was extraordinary. the sweetness and the salt were in balance. the pasta was hard enough. i really don't like soft pastas. it was like an Italian way. we had pear as a dessert. you should definitely try it. ice cream on the top made that dessert a heaven piece. the prices were okay. all of the things i counted above cost around $105. (tip is not included of course)
and our server Peter was guiding us about the choices for dinner. since it was our first time there, he was very helpful. he wasn't checking us so often. it was just proper frequency :) i will definitely go there again. if you have not been there yet, give a try!

Fantastic food, great beer and wine selection and great service by a friendly and assistive server. The manager was attentive to us, asking if we needed anything and that is nice to see.
The thing I like best about this place is that it is just tapas. You don't feel overfed, you sample and move on. Every part of the meal was excellent. The macaroni was amazing and homemade.
I strongly recommend this place and I will come again.
If you're a beer lover, try the chocolate stout.

For a chain restaurant, this was surprisingly good. The concept of Italian tapas is a great one. They have an extensive menu, a good wine list, and a nice bar.
We went with friends and ordered about 9 different things. My only complaint is that some items were plentiful as a tapas (the pizza, the pastas) but others were very meager - the rare tuna on bruschetta (One piece, cut in half), the beef short rib ( one piece, for $16!!) Everything was well prepared, but from a value perspective, it is pricey and not all menu items are large enough to share.

One last note - the corner round booth tables are a cozy idea, but the round tables are very small. They are NOT suited to having multiple dishes on the table to share. There is simply not enough room. So if you go with friends, ask to sit at a long wooden table!

If you’re thinking small servings of wheat pasta with red sauce, think again. The menu is full of fresh and new items, superbly prepared and presented. The cauliflower with capers was outstanding. The octopus, which normally I don’t eat, was tender and flavorful (although still an ugly tentacle). Our server was friendly and helpful and courteous. We three agreed Spuntino is an excellent discovery and worth the trip. (We all traveled to meet there; I drove an hour and I will definitely return.)
