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 pretty loud yesterday. Like the place. 3rd visit but very loud. They need to have a room for private parties and regular dining. Also NO cream for coffee and bit stingy with the milk! Service was very slow due to the party. I had to apologize to my friends because I told them much quieter than Grand Luxe. Will have to rethink going there again.

Our waiter was excellent. We dined on Mother's Day and even though the place was packed, we still got great service. Love the fried calamari. Its lightly fried so it doesn't feel super heavy. The sausage and broccoli pizza was delicious.

Had dinner knowing what tapas size portions are from trips to Spain, and Portugal. However Spuntino missed the mark. It’s mostly a wine bar and the food is secondary. Had the cold antipasti which was served in a cereal size bowl like the size portion of oatmeal. It had mostly pasta, (which should never be in an antipasto) with tiny pieces of thinly sliced salami, provolone and roasted pepper ( smaller than a pinky nail) with lots of chili oil. Way too spicy. Had a sausage and broccoli rabe pizza also with heavy chili oil the size of a My husband thought it was a way to get people to order drinks. Service was good and atmosphere was casual. We like to try different places. This one is not worth going back to.

Was in the area for a conference and while looking for a place to take us out of the hotel I came across Spuntino's. The concept of Italian Tapas caught my attention as I am a big fan of Spanish Tapas. While the food servings were very small (even for Tapas) it was very flavorful. I also ordered a mixed drink which was tasty, but served in a very narrow glass with lots of ice. The glass resembled something I would use to put a single stem flower in, as opposed to using for a drink. I think at the price point the drink was at, I would have expected a little more for my money.
The wait staff was good and very attentive and the restaurant was roomy/airy and the decor was simple but tastefully done.

we made a 7:00 reservation and requested a "nice" table since we were with friends celebrating a big anniversary. We called to say we hit traffic would they hold the table and a not so nice young man said they couldn't hold past 7:15..traffic wasn't moving and we asked if they would hold till 7:30 and if they couldn't, we would understand and turn around.. he begrudgingly said ok.. I had angst the entire trip over. We arrived to basically an empty restaurant! not nice..
we were seated smack in the middle of the room and I asked for a different table...obviously they didn't read my request.
the sweet waitress (Ellie) made up for our anxiety..she was great
do not order 3-5 plates as suggested....too much food..3 is ample

Came for Brunch with some friends to celebrate two of their Birthdays. Everything was going well until we ordered. My friends said they wanted the bottomless brunch and ordered there drinks. Come to find out the drinks they ordered were not apart of the bottomless brunch!! It would have been nice if the server had let them know when ordering.

So we expected they would apologize for the error and include the one drink each of them ordered as apart of it as they were going to keep ordering more drinks. Well that did not happen, we had to speak to the Manager and she also did not take anything off the bill. The bottomless brunch was not explained correctly on their menu or by the server. I’ve never experienced this type of horrible customer service before. On top of that the server forgot part of my friends order and blatantly said she forgot to ring it in. The only plus was she saw the birthday card on the table and brought the dessert out with a candle which was nice!

I usually love this place, but definitely not for Brunch again! It goes to show that one inexperienced server can ruin the whole experience and reputation of a really great place.

Very, very poor dining experience. I have never written a negative review before, but unfortunately feel the need to after today’s meal. Firstly, the hostess never checked us in to our reservation. I did not know this until after the meal when Open Table emailed me asking why I did not show. So, this was the first error. Secondly, it took 40 mins for our table to receive beverages despite the fact that we ordered immediately upon being seated. Our server said it was because the bartender was busy and he could not interfere behind the bar. However, he ended up bringing over the wrong beer after we had waited for our bottle of wine.

We ordered our entire meal before drinks even arrived but still waited roughly 50 minutes for appetizers. The server never asked me for my entree order, so I had to interrupt and tell him I wanted one (he asked everyone else for their order except for me) and ultimately, he never put the order in!!! When everyone’s entrees came out, mine never arrived. Luckily, the head chef covered for him and prepared it on the fly, so I did receive my entree after everyone else. But I had to wait while everyone else ate. And I must mention, it was my 25th birthday today. So it was a bit disappointing.

By the end, we did not dare order coffee or dessert. It would have taken too long. The restaurant appeared to be quite understaffed. No managers stepped in to rectify the situation and our server did not do much to appease our needs, either. It was my 25th birthday celebration and I included this in the notes of my Open Table reservation, but there was no mention of it (probably because the hostess never checked us in!!!). Overall, extremely disappointing experience. The food was great and it had the potential to be a wonderful meal, but the poor service ruined the entire evening. I do not place 100% of the blame of the server, but neither management nor front of house did much to make us feel better about the countless errors.

I went there for the second time recently, and I’m sorry to say it was pretty disappointing. Even with a reservation, I wasn’t too happy with where we were seated. I sat in a booth my first time and it was comfortable, but the chairs out on the floor definitely were not this time around.

As for service, our waitress was very nice, but I think we saw her twice throughout the entire time we were there. And nobody else really came to check on us to see how everything was, if we needed anything else, etc.

While the food is decent, I probably won’t dine here again.

While the service was outstanding, I thought the food lacked flavor and was overpriced. We had the mussels and the broth was bland. The tuna bruschetta was so loaded with toppings that you couldn't even taste the tuna. The caprese salad was uneventful and could have used more balsamic glaze. The lamb chops were super salty and again tastefully boring. The Cannoli was very tasty and the wine list had something for everyone.
