For outdoor dining, this was luxurious. The tents were secured tightly and the inside was quite warm, even for January. The instructions prior to and while we were there (for mask wearing and such) was very helpful. Fantastic food and drink as per usual.

Despite eating outside on a cold night, we were extremely comfortable the entire dining experience. The food was delicious and the entire service staff were extremely thoughtful.

My favorite Italian restaurant in town. They infuse an eastern indian influence into what would be considered northern Italian cuisine. Excellent food and service. Can't wait until they are able to serve inside again.

Spuntino is doing a great job given the pandemic. Our first time there since the pandemic. their outdoor seating is setup well, great ventilation and nice layout. Heaters keep the tents comfortable. Might be cool if it is windy. It was the night we went, but it seemed to warm up nicely as more people came and it breeze diminshed.

Any restaurant serving in a pandemic deserves 5 stars. Spuntino has outstanding food and as patrons, we want it! So, the 4 of us (nearing our 80's!) Went there the other night. In the tent, yes, we were warmly dressed and froze anyway. ( wear gloves.) I've been to Antarctica, and it was warmer in a boat drinking champagne amongst the icebergs! However, we were not as joyous as eating in Spuntino's tent! The food just rocked. I had the drop-dead delicious bolonaze with wide pasta, the best on the planet. A variety of other choices were declared a 10! We froze, we laughed and we had a few cocktails! It was heaven to be out during a pandemic, with terrific friends, having a great time eating amazing food! Thank you Spuntino employees for you persistent efforts to stay open and for preparing your always high quality for for us. We are never able to be grateful enough, but...at 'almost 80', you made this ole gal who selected you, mighty happy.
Applause, applause!!

One of the few restaurants still open with outdoor dining. Unfortunately that night it was in the 20s with very little outdoor heating. Otherwise the service and food were outstanding. We will definitely go back but it’s gonna have to be a little warmer. If you do go make sure you bring a hat and blanket.

We dined here on 12/12 and can’t say enough good things! Well priced menu with absolutely delicious food!!! Interesting wine menu and delightful service! The outdoor dining was great but definitely dress for the weather but the tent does a good job of breaking the wind and keeping you covered from any snow/rain. Wish this restaurant was in my home town because I would be a frequent flier without a doubt!

Great date night out! We were in the outside tent, as that is what it is now. I’d suggest a BYOB, Bring Your Own Blanket, or warm clothes they have heaters and it’s cozy but you may want a little extra. As for food we shared everything from octopus starter, roasted chicken pasta, pork 2 ways with risotto and finally affogato. Everything was perfect. Delicious!

This has got to be the best restaurant in Denver! The food is superb, the wine is excellent and the service is unmatched. However, for me right now, feeling safe from the virus is the most important thing. We have only been out twice in the last 10 months and both times have been at this restaurant because I feel perfectly safe there!

The food was incredible and we had above and beyond service. Also, we were worried the tent would be too cold, but they have instilled an excellent heating system, which kept us comfortable throughout the whole meal. Definitely recommend for a nice dinner out.

They have an outdoor tent with propane heaters, so it is comfortable. They have a varied menu of Italian standards with a South Indian flair. The owner, Elliot has a comprehensive and varied wine lists and after dinner beverages including Amaro. He specializes in smaller wineries.

Absolutely fantastic experience. Owner called when I needed to change the reservation and did everything he could to accommodate me. Focaccia and burratta were amazing. Had the bolognese and loved it. Wasn’t able to have dessert due to time but I’m sure it was incredible. I will definitely be back many times over.

Great Experience at Spuntino! We dined in the tent outside, the staff ran it like a well oiled machine and we were very comfortable with a light jacket (tent is heated). The staff also did an excellent job pairing wines with our meal and 2 different kinds of housemade Amaro with dessert. We got the octopus, focaccia and pasta, all were delicious! I can't stop thinking about the focaccia and ricotta though, yum!
