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.

    We had the cheese board (delicious), crispy octopus (too salty), fried calamari (too oily) and the kale artichoke pizza (yummy). Service was good

    Been to this restaurant many times, often with friends from out of town. Without exception, every visit has been the same -- food was outstanding, presentation was visually very appealing; service was perfect and a personal visit from the manager topped off the evening. Always a delight and am counting the minutes to return. Miriam Weiner

    My husband and I brought our toddler with us to celebrate our 3rd wedding anniversary as a family. We received a table immediately, complete with a booster seat for our daughter. Everything we ate was delicious and the service was great!

    Staff is great - helpful, friendly, on top of things. Food however was mediocre at best. It’s an upgraded version of Olive Garden in decor, menu and ambiance, so we won’t be back. We really had high hopes for this one.

    This was a belated Mother’s Day dinner. Our waiter was friendly and efficient. We enjoyed our wine, and tapas. The shrimp scampi bruschetta was our favorite, but we also enjoyed the pane frito and prosciutto, calamari, and wild mushroom bruschetta. Even though the noise level was a bit too loud and the prices have risen, we enjoyed dining at Sputino’s.

    the good: Ambience, Service by Rafael, Wine List - and a Gluten friendly menu! the decent: Food - Arancini, Bruschetta was okay and nothing to rave about. The bad: Pasta was terrible, it was just wet noodles with uncooked tomatoes. Will go there again to try other items on the menu and the wines though, but will skip on pasta for sure.

    We were in town for a wake and unfamiliar with the area. I pulled up OpenTable to see what was nearby, so happy I did, the food was delicious!! A couple of small plates ( yes their small but on $5-7 each) I could have eaten much more of the Seared Tuna bruschetta!!! Broccolirabe & sausage was delicious too. And a Margarita pizza ( ask for extra cheese, if you like it cheesy) All perfectly prepared and presented! Thank you Ava for the kind service a go to for locals for sure!!

    It was an amazing place. As the name suggests they had small plates and we had to order a lot. Some dishes were super tasty and some were okayish. Also, they have a huge collection of wine, and I loved the wine flights!

    Maybe because it was a holiday that the food was disappointing. We’ve been to spruntinos plenty of times before and we brought our friends who have never been there before and the food was very disappointing. The best thing was the bruschettas. The margarita pizza had no flavor. The pasta dishes we order the pasta was not cooked all the way through. The dessert came to us room temperature. You would think it would of came out nice and warm considering how long it took for it to come out. We usually love this place but this time I have to be honest it was not that great. Not sure if we will be coming back soon.

    Service was slow. The room we were seated in was not great. First course was good. Second course I was served raw salmon. The waiter and Manager did say they were sorry and did make a new one snd also took it off our bill. Expense for what you get. Will not go back.

    I found this hidden gem on a random Google search for tapas spots a few years back and have been coming back since. Hard to pick a favorite dish so my suggestion would be try everything once!
