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.

This is my second time here and it’s great. The food is amazing. Our waiter, Gabriel, is incredible and makes our visit an enjoyable experience. Our only problem is that we can’t try everything all at once but we haven’t been disappointed either time we were here.

The he pasta was flavorless as the water it was cooked in was not sufficiently salted

The short rib could have used additional potato puréed and a little more sauce

Hi Gregory, thank you for your review and feedback. We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy the pasta and short rib tapas you ordered. Which pasta was that? We invite you dine with us again and try other tapas dishes if you prefer one of those instead.

Excellent brunch menu. We ordered 3 different options, and all 3 we're delicious and plentiful: the Nutella French toast, the breakfast pizza and the caprese avocado toast. Service was also attentive and professional. Would definitely recommend for brunch.

Excellent choice. Great wine list by the glass. Shrimp berrata and eggplant meatballs were excellent. Brussel sprouts were bland. Orricette with sausage needed more sausage. Looking forward to trying more small plate items.

Spuntinos is the perfect place for a friends night out! I love tapas style meals and they serve the freshest quality food for the right price. Our service had always been great and it’s my go-to place for a last minute get together. We ordered different bruschetta including strawberry mascarpone (our favorite), tomato and basil (always a fan favorite), apple Gorgonzola (least favorite; too
Much Gorgonzola ) and mushroom truffle which was pretty good. We also ordered the truffle fries which are AMAZING! And the margarita pizza which was also pretty good. We ended our night with their version of fried zeppole with their three sauces. I am not a caramel person but I inhaled their caramel dip!

We ate outside which was very nice. Inside would be a bit noisy but the food is so good we will still be happy to eat inside when the weather turns cold. The tuna bruschetta appetizer is incredible. The best bruschetta ever! The Salmon entree was delicious too. Cooked perfectly. And we don't say this very often about restaurant deserts but we absolutely loved the chocolate cake. It was very moist and had a super creamy chocolate icing. Our server was awesome. We only gave service 4 stars because he had way too many tables. But he definitely made the most of the situation. We were not in any rush so it was a no problem and it gave us some time to try more wine off of the excellent wine list.

My husband and I haven't been here in years and decided to go somewhere different tonight with our kids. We had such a great meal. The manager was amazing from the minute we walked in and was so great with our daughter. He even let her make her own pizza and then watch them put it in the oven. Thank you to all of the great staff for being so kind! We know you don't have it easy these days.

Wait staff was excellent. Atmosphere was really nice. As far as food, I am lover of salmon, and the salmon here was one of the best I’ve ever had and portion was perfect. Best side - hands down the Brussels sprouts. Don’t waste your money getting the little potatoes…you can make much better at home. Portion size of the Spuntino board was probably for 2-maybe 3 people and not worth the price.

The food was just not as good as it normally has been. The calamari was very fishy. Our chicken pomodoro was not very flavorful overall the food was mediocre at best. I completely understand about service being slow because staffing is hard and new hires are being trained everyday so it's a scary new position. That you have to give slack and understanding the training should be more in depth with teaching each of the servers about drinks and menu they should do a food tasting so they understand what it's all about. That would help the restaurant as well as the servers
