We are offering reservations for our covered; now heated outdoor dining space. While our heaters are quite effective, we strongly suggest our guests dress in appropriate layers on colder nights. We have worked tirelessly to create a comfortable and safe space that will allow our guests to return to enjoying the escape of a relaxing evening of dining out. We are currently not booking reservations for parties larger than 4 - don't hesitate to call us with any questions.

If you are booking an earlier reservation (up to 7pm) please respect our need to reseat your table with later reservations. Due to current restrictions, all diners must be finished their meals by 10pm.

Our first dinner out since the pandemic started. Dining in the tent on a cool spring evening was comfortable. The Cavatelli with lamb shoulder was wonderful.

Their outdoor tent with propane heaters and plenty of airflow reduces the risks of infection. The menu has been pared down to allow for easier preparation for the chef. The owner, Elliott has a diverse wine & drinks menu.

We want to come back when indoor dining is offered again. The food was fabulous, the service impeccable and a great value meal, but we were cold seating next to the tent "door", so we'd rather wait until we can fine inside. We will come back for sure.

Thank you so much for joining us last night and I'm so glad you enjoyed the dinner. That wind was something else! I'm so sorry you ended up at the most exposed table with the way it was coming in - we've served many much colder nights in our outdoor space and without unusual wind like that it has stayed quite comfortable. We very much look forward to hosting you again, whether back inside once the staff is vaccinated, or if you joiner us again on a warmer or calmer night. Best, Elliot S

The wine and food are absolutely stellar here! The wait staff is extremely knowledgeable and gives great recommendations and are also extremely welcoming. We sat out in their tent with the Covid restrictions and even with the bitter cold, were quite warm inside but also felt far enough away from other diners. This team is doing a wonderful job!

Had dinner here Saturday, and was impressed. The food was superb, service was great, and their wine list is outstanding. Outdoor dining during COVID-19 is an adventure, as you are at the mercy of mother nature as it relates to temperature and wind. Spuntino has a nice set up with their tent and heaters, fresh air to keep the air circulated, and heaters to keep the temperature up. Nicely done.

The food was very good, and unique. Not quintessential Italian if that's what you're looking for. We were seated by the back where that was a substantial breeze of cold air into the tent which was uncomfortable, and rough to see other patrons seated in warmer areas who didn't even need their coats on while we were bundled up to stay warm. I guess its just the gamble you take for eating outdoors, in the winter, during Covid. Still, it would have been nice to have been warmer.

Hey Tyler, So glad you enjoyed your dinner, but we're very sorry you were dealt the shorter end of the stick winter-dining wise on Saturday. It was a surprisingly and unexpectedly windy night and we seem to learn something new with every shift of weather while we're trying to adapt to keep our guests comfortable and safe. While that table is usually comfortable on colder nights, we're sorry we couldn't do better for you that night. If we can make it up to you, do reach out. Best, Elliot S

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.

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!!
