There is simply no place like Spuntino in Long Island. Tuna and shrimp bruschetta in a league of their own. Get the charcuterie board, it is worth it.

Service was good.
In the middle of our meal they put a table of six about 3 inches away from us. was not Covid friendly this is crazy.
This made us extremely uncomfortable. Didn’t finish our meal. obviously didn’t order dessert and we left.
P.S. I’ve been eating out throughout the pandemic but this was too close for comfort

We’ve been coming here since it opened. While I’m glad we’ve returned, some things would be mentioned.
Our waiter was great. He’s going to work himself to death.
Due to the lack of workers from this pandemic. Sad

I hate the lighting. Time to update alittle.
Food was decent. Shrimp bruschetta was amazing.
Then things were just good. Pizza w/meatballs needed more pizzazz. Can’t even recall what else cause while decent nothing exciting

Just saying. We will come back but most likely sit in the bar area which has better lighting.

This was our first time here. Our reservation was 5:30pm. We were greeted by the hostess and seated. Our waiter came over and asked if we wanted a drink. I asked if I could taste one of the white wines. It took a while before he came over. I did not care for it. I asked him to suggest another wine which he did. We ordered. Our first plates took a while. The artichokes were delicious and the octopus was good. The octopus was a little small compared to the other plates that came out. Then we waited and waited. My salmon was brought out. My husband ordered the rigatoni bolognese. The waiter said it would be out in a few minutes. After waiting 20-25 minutes, no rigatoni. The waiter never came back. I called over the manager who said he was going to see what was going on. The restaurant was not busy where we were sitting. Finally the manager came over and started to explain. We asked for the check and left at 7:40pm. We will not be going back again.

Hello, thank you for your feedback. Our restaurant style emphasizes Italian tapas, small plate menu to share and try dishes among a table. We aim to inform tables of this expectation before ordering their food. I apologize that this was not previously explained to you and I hope you will give us another chance to serve you.

Went out to eat with 3 of my friends, great atmosphere and nice inside/outside. Seemed as if they were quite understaffed with the lack of service they had. We had to wait 15-20 minutes even with a reservation as they “overbooked” with walk-ins and other reservations. Such a nice place, but with the lack of service, it gave an overall bad experience for all 4 of us. I got a Cesar salad and the dressing wasn’t even throughout the salad, it was a big blob of dressing on a few pieces. My friends steak had no flavor (seasoning/marinade), they also ran out of the steak as one of could not get it and had to pick another menu item.

Individual pizza was terrible. Undercooked with watery sauce in the middle of pan. French fries delicious and best item on menu.

Waitress very good.



Do not recommend and will not return.

Severely understaffed. I understand we are coming out of a pandemic, but it was not enjoyable at all. Our requests went unanswered, not for lack of trying, just very understaffed.

We had always had a pleasant experience here, unfortunately we will not be back.

We always love having tapas at Spuntino’s. It’s so much fun sharing those delicious small plates. We had a Margarita pizza to follow and enjoyed that as well. And we loved the wine choices, too! A great after-Covid celebration with our cousin from Chicago!

Our waiter Ashanti was amazing. He was attentive and very o top of his game. We loved our food and the service bathe only complaint I have was they couldn’t substitute our potatoes for a vegetable and that was complexly weird as other restaurants do that without ordering a side dish. We will be returning again.

First time at Spuntino and really enjoyed it. They have a great wine selection and the small plates is a great way to enjoy different foods without getting a huge portion of one thing like most Italian restaurants. Its a nice space and we will surely be coming back. The service was also excellent and friendly.

the owner is always so nice and on top of everything! we dined in and wanted a pizza to go and he kept it hot for us in the oven the entire time until we were done eating. the service is great and the food is even better!! i love the small plates so you can get a variety of things off the menu, they’re all so good it’s hard to pick one. the restaurant theme is also really cute. this has been one of my favorite date night spots for years!!
