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.

It was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had at a restaurant. Our waiter was the sweetest, most kind and helpful person, and the food was phenomenal. Service and environment were fantastic and the entire experience was just amazing. We can’t wait to go back.

I like this place. It has a romantic / cozy feel to it. Made a reservation but did jot need one. The plave had a few people in it, sizable amount. Decided to sit at the bar to enjoy it better. Sometimes, talking to the bartenders is better. Noticed so much wine all over the ppafe. They have a huge list. Ordered a mediterranean mule, which was tasty. My friend ordered the cherry Manhattan. Different but good. Trying to choose something on the menu, decided to go with Shrimp risotto and mussles. The shrimp risotto was not bad, and the mussels were decent. I asked the bartenders if the pork belly good, and she suggested the ribs that will knock you out along with their mix specialty drinks. I need to return to have some wine. It's a place worth visiting and checking out for yourself.

So I returned another day while the weather was horrendous. I sat at the bar and Juliette, I believe was her name, just took such great care of me. She gave a huge list of wine with extensive by the glass wines as well. I settled on a bourbon barrel wine that was smooth and very slight sweetness to it. The bartender guided me to my decision. She is just a nice person and we had lots of conversations prior when she was not busy. I ordered 2 bruschettas, 1 with wild mushrooms and the 2nd tuna. Also got the baby arugula salad with grilled squash which was good, and finally the bronzing. The good thing about this place is the tapas. People can share small bites of everything and delicious bites also. This is a great place to meet, drink and groups as well.

This is probably my 5th time dining here and by far the worst service that I’ve received, our server kept disappearing which was highly disappointing. The food and drinks took longer than usual to come out and at the end of the night my server actually was no where in sight so someone else had to help us.

Went on a Friday night around 8p and was quite busy. We waited a bit after being seated for the waitress to take our drink order. She did apologize for the wait. We shared a few small plates - we knew they were small, so just enough to taste and move to the next item. Lots of options. Nice atmosphere. Fun place to go- I would go back!

The pizza is very good. So definitely a go to and it you do the cash deals - the prices are good.

Entrees are just Okay ... the portions are huge and you can’t possibly finish any one plate in one sitting.

That said - the food is smothered in sauces. And overall it’s expensive.

We ordered stuffed peppers which were just Okay.
We had a seafood salad starter but it could have been fresher.

The entrees were just Okay. Stick with the pizza ...

First time at Spuntino’s and will definitely return! Lively atmosphere and delicious food. Celebrated a birthday with friends and we loved everything we ordered! Eddie was our server, and was attentive and helpful with suggestions. We ordered 8 small plates for us 4 ladies: truffle fries, burrata, shrimp scampi x2, bruschetta, strawberry marscapone bruschetta, short rib, sausage and broccoli rabe pasta, margharita pizza. Then added coffees and apple crustini and donuts for dessert. Scrumptious from beginning to end!! Highly recommend!!

The entire restaurant was empty but the squeezed my party of 9 into a party of 7 booth. I asked to expand and the server said why, you fit. Just ask the kid to move over.

That just rubbed me the wrong way altogether.

Then, we ordered it was fine. However I proceeded to add a side of hash. When it was brought over it was a quarter of a potato. 😂😂

I have so many mixed feelings about this place but I realized I don’t think I would go back unless I was desperate for a reservation.

Every time that we have gone it is always a good experience. I suggest making a reservation because the weekends it does get crowded. I am always so happy about how fast the food and drinks come out. The food is delicious, both the tapas and entree sized dishes.

Our first time dining here! We really enjoyed everything we ordered! Had the pork ribs, lamb chops and short ribs... so tasty and cooked perfectly! We also had the risotto (delish) and GF pasta bolognese! To my delight, the GF pasta was HOMEMADE!!!!! What a good surprise! Typically when I get GF pasta in a restaurant, it’s penne (and not homemade).
The only issue was the espresso machine was broken so we couldn’t get cappuccino for dessert!
Will definitely return!

Food and ambiance are always good here. Only complaint this time was when we arrived we were seated at a table right by the entrance even though the place was not crowded and we had the reservation. When we asked to change to a nicer table further in we got a BIG attitude!! Not appreciated!

We came for the Feast of Seven Fishes menu
Of the seven dishes offered, I would rate three as tasty (shrimp, smoked salmon, octopus) three others as only OK , and the last offering, the Squid Ink Campanella, as outstanding. We also opted for the wine pairings, and we found most of these choices to be acceptable but not exceptional
However, the cost of this overall menu for two, at $200 , before tax and tip, is excessive.
I think the restaurant should offer a menu with slightly larger servings which can be shared by two and which is considerably less expensive than the $140 we paid
