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 were there to celebrate a birthday on a Monday night. The main dining room was quiet and less than half full.

We noticed that Monday is “Bin Night” on the scanned menu which included a wine list of half priced wines. We asked the waitress about this since this was our first time seeing this offer. Being that she was new, she was unsure of this and checked with the manager who confirmed the discount. We chose a wine from the list. After a while the manager came over to tell us the list was not current and gave us a paper list to choose from.

The wine was fine and the food was great as usual.
We ordered various small plates- bruschetta, calamari, grilled octopus, and apple crostata.
Service was spotty, though, and serving utensils had to be requested. This may have been due to the pandemic closing the restaurant for months and new employees. Restaurants have suffered greatly and hopefully will be able to survive. I highly recommend Spuntino’s and will return!

I love Spuntino every time I go, whether for drinks and just a small plate or to put together a meal. I love the tapas option to be able to try more. I went this time with a friend who is gluten/dairy free and the waiter spent time going over the whole menu, not only what was gluten/dairy free but also what substitutions they could do. It was amazing! Delicious as always

Spuntinos was our first choice when when we returned to dining in. Very nice and friendly service. Most of the food was a good as I remember it. The only problem was the carbonara which didn't seem to have as much taste as I remembered. We certainly will return to sample some more of your great dishes.

Very nice restaurant for a night out with friends. The waitress was really nice at explaining to us how to order and the portion of the dishes. The food was delicious and for a very reasonable prince

This place is a hidden modern subway tile gem in the middle of Jersey! We usually go to the city for a type of dining experience but there is one right here in our area. Really love this place.

My wife and I have been to sputinos on numerous occasions from random date nights to celebrating each other’s birthdays and our anniversary.

We have enjoyed each of those meals. But, tonight was definitely not one of those night. The food and service was mediocre at best.

The fresh mozzarella tastes on par with mass produced mozzarella.

The worst item of the night a medium rare ribeye which initially was cooked to well done. It was sent back and returned back to us raw - the middle blue.

The octopus was well enjoyed. Unfortunately everything else was a train wreck!

Awful meal. An utter disappointment to be honest with you.

They lost something! Hopefully they can recapture the quality of the past.

Food has gone down in quality. Most of what used to be great was just okay. Not a good value and a disappointment from what it used to be.

Was very much looking forward to coming to Spuntino, but was ultimately disappointed. The short rib was dry and flavorless. The potato “purée” was actually lumpy and also flavorless. The filet mignon was ordered medium rare and was served medium well. They were gracious enough not to charge for the filet. My frustration lies in the fact that when we go out to a restaurant that charges $20 for a tapas plate we expect it to be a treat, and professionally prepared, and very tasty. The value wasn’t there.

Amazing things to say about this place. It’s my second time coming here and both times it has been a very pleasant experience. Drinks are amazing, the atmosphere is great, the service is great. The food has also been good although I was slightly disappointed with my shrimp scampi, I literally had 4 shrimp and not sure what kind of pasta it was served with but it wasn’t traditional spaghetti or linguine- the sauce I found flavorless but other than that everything else I have had has been great. I would def recommend this place.
