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 Alps Provisions (Long Island City, NY), Blooming Hill Farms (Monroe, NY) and Goffle Farm Poultry (Wycoff, NJ).

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.

Food and wine is SO GOOOOOD!!!! Food was slow coming out, they said the kitchen was backed up, but it was a Saturday night, so we understood fully. The Affogato was one of the best desserts I have ever had!

Went out to a nice dinner with my boyfriend and got a couple bottles of wine. Because our alcohol bill was larger than our food amount the manager would not let us order more drinks. We were not intoxicated in any way and had Ubered to the restaurant so we did not have to drink and drive. Made us feel very uncomfortable!!! Thought this was ridiculous and will not be going back because of it!

Always enjoy the tapas choices. Very attentive wait staff and manager could be seen all over the restaurant helping wait staff, and asked if there was anything else he could do for us. Will definitely be coming back.

Two friends and I had dinner, we had a great time! We tried the burrata, fig & prosciutto flat bread, the short ribs and brussel sprouts, then we decided to add the mussels, everything was DELICIOUS! Our server Ross was attentive and made very good reccomendations. I would DEFINITELY return.

No complaints about food: mussels in a delicious creamy broth, truffle pizza with prosciutto, and the large sizzling meat platter. Happily overstuffed. All items including sangria, wine, and pomegranate cocktail hit the spot. We paid a good amount but completely satisfied with every meal, including the vanilla gelato with espresso poured over it. Will def come back for girls night or date with the hubby!

Have been coming to Spuntino for a few years now. It’s our special occasion place to go! Every time is amazing, the food, the employees, the ambience! Definitely a must do if you enjoy small, sharing plates. Plenty of wine and other drinks. A little pricey but overall excellent!

The service was slow and our server was not knowledgeable on the menu, or drinks, as well as lied about the wine pour not knowing I’ve been there before. The food was ok I wasn’t impressed, the food on a Tuesday night was much better then on a Saturday. It was a friends special occasion and we left disappointed. Definitely not worth $400 check. Never going back.

This restaurant would have received a 5 if the hostess and even GM did not screw my reservation.

I made a reservation on OpenTable for two last night (2/15/19) for 7pm. We arrived 20 minutes early and my name was on the list and the hostess acknowledged the reservation and I told her with the GM there that I wanted to take advantage of happy hour. She agreed and told me that the table was ready for me (#37) and stated that after I was done with happy hour, she would either come and get me at 7 or go up to her at 7 to be seated. After happy hour, which was really good - loved the truffle fries and Mediterranean mule, we went to the hostess at 7pm sharp and we were seated. As we were seated the hostess said to me that I had no reservation and they had to make a fake reservation. At that time I didn't put two in two together because I was under the impression that they checked me in on OpenTable upon arrival or even when I returned to them after happy hour. About 45 minutes later I received a phone call from the restaurant asking me if I was coming or should they cancel and I told them I am here and seated and I overheard the response she is here. Then I thought then and there I was checked off for the reservation. Today, I received an email that my reservation was cancelled.

However here is the good news:
Overall food and service was good.
Daniela was a server and she was knowledgeable about the dishes and her recommendations were on point for the most. Her recommendations of the Malbec for the risotto was great because the palette was perfectly balanced between the richness of the risotto and the red wine. The black truffle pizza was really good despite a kick of the red pepper. The food servings appeared small but they were definitely filling. We were so full that we had to pass on the dessert.

I would definitely come back and I could get even do a girls night at this restaurant but they have to step up their game on communication.

I’ve never been to Spuntino before and probably wouldn’t return. The food was mediocre at best and our waiter was less than ideal.

Would rather spend a bit more to go to a real Italian restaurant.

We dined using the Restaurant Week menu and loved our choices. The service was a LITTLE lacking in refiling water, bringing bread to the table, but very pleasant. The manager (I presume) came by and was very friendly. Overall a great local restaurant! If menu prices were a little more competitive we would be back but in the meantime we have to wait for the next RW!
Thanks all around for some DELICIOUS food!

Great selection of Italian tapas and all of them are good and reasonably priced. We have been here multiple times and service variesdepending on how crowded it is. Manager came over when we sat down to welcome us and told us he would be back later, but never reappeared. Sangria is good but pricey. When packed, noise level can be problematic but, overall, the food is worth any minor inconveniences. And the dessert doughnut holes with dipping sauce is to die for.
