Italian
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.

    I chose this location for a family friendly birthday dinner and it didn't disappoint! Our waiter was amazing! He engaged with all the attendees which included only Spanish speaking adults and two young girls. I highly recommend and I will definitely be back soon!

    The food is consistent and doesn’t disappoint. However, considering it was a slow Sunday evening, the overall service was very slow.

    So good! We came here for our anniversary and we're initially seated in a nice private booth but our waiter was nowhere to be found so another waiter who had seated us invited us to sit in his section and he took great care of us the entire night, his name was Christian and he is awesome. We had a ton of appetizers starting with the cheese plate, had the artichokes and eggplant meatballs, the risotto and one of the pastas, everything was absolutely delicious. We realized we had been there for nearly 2 hours and had somewhere else to be so we were sort of in a rush to leave which was too bad because the manager came over and said he was going to give us a free dessert because it was our anniversary and because of the little hiccup at the beginning. I wish we could have stayed for dessert, next time!

    We have been here many times. The food was good. The service was very slow and we had to ask for items another of times before the order was brought. The pasta dishes were excellent. The pork medallions were under cooked.

    Server was great and had a lot of knowledge of the menu so was able to make great recommendations. I made a note that it was my friend's birthday so I expected a little something like a candle or a birthday message somewhere with dessert so that's the reason for the 4/5 stars.

    Really enjoyed the experience. Food was great. I just think the food portion sizes are small. They should be double the size for the cost. Make sure you order a good amount but know the cost will go up. Should be more kids choices as well.

    Great little spot before a movie at the nearby theater. Small plates, so you can order a handful of things for tasting. Good for families. Typical dining experience for a place in a strip mall type setting.

    Always rock solid. Changing menu and wine keeps things fresh. New wine keeper storage allows a pour of a $100-$200 bottle of wine for affordable sipping. Love it. Great addition to wine offering. Food is always top notch.

    Easy place to take the kids or simple date with the Wife. Need to change the menu more often. Nice wine list. Ok drinks. 12 bux for a local “rotating ipa” is absolutely ludicrous.

    Food is delicious and the drinks are great. It's on the expensive side, but that's tapas. Service is usually great, but tonight it was questionable. Multiple wrong dishes brought over, wrong beer for me, forgot a dessert.

    Been to this restaurant many times, often with friends from out of town. Without exception, every visit has been the same -- food was outstanding, presentation was visually very appealing; service was perfect and a personal visit from the manager topped off the evening. Always a delight and am counting the minutes to return. Miriam Weiner
