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

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 is always excellent, as is the wine list. Service professional, friendly and efficient. Great atmosphere. I think most of their dishes are a good value for the price -- small plates but excellent quality. Only the meat dishes leave me a bit skeptical. We ordered the lamb chops last night and they were incredibly delicious--petfectly cooked with a lovely little sauce. But at $20, I was disappointed that it was only 2 little chops. Same thing happened last time with the steak and salsa verde. Not worth the price. Other than that, we are big fans and come here regularly.

A Wonderful dinner at Spuntino's. We were lucky enough to have Chef Michelle DeJardin
create us a special plate and we got to see GM Brian McAllister in his whites. Or Server Kaitlin did a fantastic job spacing the courses, no rush, no pressure. And the Wine what can I say.
Thanks to All of the Staff.

My dad is getting up there in years and I take him to see his doctor every couple of months. Usually after one of these visits we got out and get a bite to eat. Dad moves quite a bit slower now and uses a walker for help so I like to take him to places that understand and who are accommodating to our needs.

The staff at Spuntino's couldn't have been nicer and helpful. They took care in helping him in and out of the restaurant and sat us in a place that allowed him to walk easily to and from the table and gave us enough room to place his walker out of the way. They were also there to help when he dropped a utensil or his napkin on the floor with new ones.

Saying that the food was still the best part of the evening. We were both very pleased with the quality and amount of food provided. When I hear tapas I think small plates - small food. Not here, the amount of food provided with each plate was enough to share for 2 and everything tasted great especially the lamb chops! We shared 4 plates and a pizza, which left both of us full. Next time I think we'll go for 3 plates and get dessert - because they looked great coming out of the kitchen!

Again, thanks to the staff for all their help and understanding and we will be back. I highly recommend Spuntino's.

I love everything about this restaurant however I always seem to leave hungry. I love the food, everything tastes great. The service is exceptional. The Ambiance lovely. However the portion size is small for the price. I wish the portion sizes were just a bit larger so I didn't always leave hungry.

I think that the food portions were very small, even for a tapas type restaurant. In my opinion I think that the plates were overpriced for the quantity of food. The pizza and donuts were the only things that I would say were a good value. Definitely disappointed, we were celebrating a 30th birthday and decided to try somewhere new. Big mistake. However, the service was great.

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful date night experience at Spuntino. We'd both been traveling for over a week and chose Spuntino for our 'reunion' dinner. They have a variety of good wine for every budget. The Tapas were a perfect size for sharing. We each got our own salads for appetizers, and then got four tapas to share for our entree, and they were all delicious and filling without being too much. As vegetarians, there were plenty of options for us to eat, and our waiter was accommodating when we asked for a certain pizza without the pepperoni. We can't wait to come back.

The food was very good and that is saying a lot coming from an Italian woman who is very critical of Italian restaurants! I do think however that the $24 cheese board was not substantial enough for the price. Our server was great and we had a lovely time.

The food was horrible. Like it was either reheated or microwaved food. My wine was awful. Waiter was good though. They swapped out my wine and didn't charge me for the first one. Atmosphere was ok. But overall, because of the low quality food, this soured me on the place and I feel it's definitely not value for money.

Enjoyed the food and had very good service. However, it was cold in the room we were seated at. The waitress indicated the head didn’t work so well in this room, but they ‘cranked’ it up in the other room and it should start to warm up. It really didn’t. They should try to fix this.

I read an article saying this place was the one to go for Valentine’s day this year and they were right! The decoration is beautiful service was excellent and the food AMAZING but the red wine Sangria was too watery. I will definitely be coming back again and giving the Sangria another try. Also the apple, walnut, gorgonzola bruschetta is to die for!

I don't know where to start... I made a reservation on open-table for 8:30 pm. we were there at 8:25. the host who welcomed us was very friendly and professional. we waited for three or four minutes. while i was making my resevation, i asked for a table which is not in the center. i was amazed that they really read and cared about what i wanted. our table was right next to the kitchen. i know it may sound bad but i am telling you it was one of the best table in there. the kitchen was working in silence, they were clean and organized and it was quite nice to see how they were working. we ordered half liter of cabernet sauvignon, cherry manhattan, calamari, bruschetta and dried tomato & mozzarella salad. they were all starters of course :) the portions were small, but our waiter (peter) told us that in advance. however this place offers you a little of everything. it seems small but the joy & the taste were big :) i got bolognese, my boyfriend got fig pizza. the pizza was extraordinary. the sweetness and the salt were in balance. the pasta was hard enough. i really don't like soft pastas. it was like an Italian way. we had pear as a dessert. you should definitely try it. ice cream on the top made that dessert a heaven piece. the prices were okay. all of the things i counted above cost around $105. (tip is not included of course)
and our server Peter was guiding us about the choices for dinner. since it was our first time there, he was very helpful. he wasn't checking us so often. it was just proper frequency :) i will definitely go there again. if you have not been there yet, give a try!
