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.

What a great place, my hubby and I loved everything we ate; meat and cheese platter is a must. Well set up, cocktails are the tops. Loved their decor.

The food was horrible, truffle festival a rip off - couldn’t find the truffle in appearance or taste, food came out cold, wine pairing was a joke - they plopped down four wines on the table, didn’t explain which was to go with which dish, the dishes came out randomly. The pasta tasted like it was from a pre-made just add water packet. How can an Italian restaurant not know how to cook pasta?! It was disgusting. The waiter was clueless and unresponsive. This place would never survive a week in the city. Restaurant was full. Are there really this many people without standards? Diner beware, this place sucks

HAPPY HOUR WINE WAS AWFUL. POLENTA ON THE MEAT WAS GREAT! POLENTA SHOULD BE ON REGULAR MENU. COMPLIMENTS TO THE CHEF! MORE BREAD WITH MUSSELS SHOULD BE SERVED. PISTACHIO ICE-CREAM WAS AWFUL. BUY TONS OF PISTACHIOS AND MAKE REAL PISTACHIO ICE-CREAM!!!!!! OTHER THAN THAT, IT WAS GOOD. TAKE CARE. THANK YOU.

Previous visits here have been very good. However, this past visit was not. Ordered two different entrees (steak and fish) only to be told by our server that they were out of both! And this was before 8:00! Very disappointing!

Absolutely love this place!!! Food was divine, great service and fairly priced. The bill for 2 was under $100 and that was with 2 drinks! The truffle fries are always a must and the pumpkin ravioli (seasonal item) was amazing! But really, you can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Oh, and they have an extensive wine list and the cocktails are great!

I’m we sat down at 615 with our reservation. However service was very slow. We were there for 2 and a half hours. When we finally ordered our appetizers and dinner the appetizers came out after a half hour of ordering. After 5 minutes of getting our appetizers dinner came out while we were still enjoying our apps. I didn’t really care for eating my apps with my dinner. All the food was very good.

Restaurant was very nice. Had a cool vibe sat in a booth which felt very intimate. Our waiter was attentive and kept on checking on us not in an overbearing way. Food was good calimari had small diced olives in it which gave it unique taste. Mediterranean mule was really refreshing.

Very nice spot, service was top notch. The wine flights were a good selection and great deal. Seared tuna appetizer was my favorite. Meatballs were a little smallish and could’ve had more flavor. Octopus was good, not great. Higher scores for the service than the food, but a very enjoyable spot and priced accordingly. Would go again.

Party of 2- asked if we could sit at a bigger table for the table was very small and in between another couple. The tables were arranged very close together. I was given a very rude response that they were for only 3-4 people, even though 2 of those tables had just 2 people. After telling the waiter it was our first time there, you would think he would come check up on us throughout the meal- instead we were constantly looking for him but ended up asking other waiters to do a simple water refill. The place was not crowded so can’t use that excuse. I wish there was a better experience because I would have gone back to try other small meals that we didn’t that night.

My husband and I decided to treat ourselves to a boozy Sunday brunch date. We have eaten dinner at Spuntino a few times, but never experienced brunch. I had already heard rave reviews of their brunch from friends, and we love the ambiance so we decided to give it a try. The restaurant opens at 11:30, we arrived at noon. The service was excellent. Our server was so friendly and attentive. She gave honest recommendations about the menu and was a pleasure to interact with. The food was BEYOND. We ordered 3 entrees (even though they’re full size...blame my husband) and they were all top notch delicious. There were no leftovers to speak of! The chef came out to speak to all the tables and check on their meals. He was also so pleasant and his cooking was so amazing that I was really excited to interact with him and thank him personally. The bottomless brunch option was great, and even though we finished our meals before the 2 hour time limit was up, our server made sure we weren’t rushed at all and we stayed to sip our last pitcher of mimosas even after our plates were cleared. I would definitely go back and bring friends!

Food was good. Scallops were overpriced for what they were. I realize small plates means dishes are sent out at different times when ready but waiter completely forgot about scallops. Had to ask, r’cvd in 20 seconds so they were done but just sitting in kitchen. Waiter was very personable but did not know about daily special for $34.95.
