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. Call us with large parties (5-6) or if you don't see the availability you're looking for.

If you are booking an earlier reservation (up to 7pm) please respect our need to reseat your table with later reservations. You are welcome to call us to discuss options for longer meals.

If you are running late or if your reservation plans change at all, please call. Our business depends on our guests communicating with us and no-shows have a severe impact on us.

*We ask for all of our guests to wear appropriate face masks any time you are not seated and at any time staff is present at your table*

Spuntino is truly making the best of the current situation. We visited on a cold night (below 30), and were still comfortable in the outdoor space. The service and food were both fantastic! We cannot wait to visit again when we come back to Denver!

My overall experience at Sputino was average mainly due to the atmosphere, the food and the service. I was cold where we were sitting. We had our coats on the entire time. When my reversation was confirmed, I asked the receptionist if it were going to be cold as this is an outdoor seating. She reassured me that there will be plenty of heaters and that will not be a problem. The food was not bad but definitely not excellent. It was very salty especially the Spanish octopus appetizer. The octopus was well prepared. Very tender. But the chirozo or sausage that come with it was extremely salty. I order the goat papadelle which was good but lacks the deep and rich flavor. I feel all the flavors were not well incorporated onto the pasta. My daughter ordered Cappelli with chicken and it was also super salty. Vanilla gellato was good but not better than the one you would get a good Gelato shop. The hostess was nice and polite but didn't check on us often enough and we were mistakenly brought two dishes that we didn't order.
Again, food wasn't bad but given Colorado has so many great restaurants to eat, I wouldn't come back because the 3 dishes that we ordered didn't satisfy my taste buds and neither was the service and atmosphere.

Service and food quality are both consistently outstanding. They are so respectful and cautious about my son’s food allergies. We are going to do our best to support the wonderful team at Spuntino this winter and hope you will give them a try too. They won’t disappoint!

Spuntino's outdoor tent was heated and safe. The quality of their food and service was excellent. My server knew the entire menu and explained any questions I had. I had a Negroni with my salumni & formagii plate, Farfalle pasta with a salad + a bottle of Cantina Del Pino Nebbiolo. I had Zeppole (Italian donut holes) and a Latte for dessert.

I mean, just a phenomenal place.
We went on a dinner date for 2, just looking for somewhere new with great food, great environment, etc.
we were blown away.
The care of the staff was exceptional - it was the perfect balance of being looked after, but also have space to talk and enjoy the night together.
I could write an essay about the food, but I’ll spare you - just go eat it. It’s incredibly fresh, it’s creative and unique, but it’s also just SO damn good.
Stop reading this review and go make a reservation. We’ll be back many, many times in the future

Amazing find recommended by a friend who is a caterer. Delicious, authentic food and amazing staff. We were celebrating a birthday and they were very sweet to make it special. Even though the food is fancy the dress is VERY casual.

Went for happy hour (advertised on their first Open Table photo), but since inside is closed down, they don’t offer HH deals whatsoever. Small cheeseboard was great and had decently priced wine options by the glass, but wish they’d do a happy hour of some sort for a quick app & glass with girlfriends!

Responded on October 9, 2020

Hey Grace, Very glad you enjoyed the food & wine - I'm sure we'll get back to happy hour whenever we can return to hosting guests at our bar, or at least get close to full capacity, but in the meantime if there are ever any questions about our offerings, just give us a call or check our website. Thanks!

This was the first time our family of four adults went to a restaurant for dinner since March. It was a special event, and we were delighted. Spuntino's outdoor tent is set up thoughtfully, with all health precautions implemented. The food was fabulous, and our servers were wonderful. My hazelnut agnolotti with mushrooms: perfection! (It was the pasta special.) The vegetarian in the group was very happy with his pasta, and the carnivores loved their chicken w/ garlic mashed potatoes.

Thanks Parker! It means a lot for us to have been able to host our guests these past few months for their first dinners back out in the world and have them feel safe and comfortable. So glad you enjoyed everything - especially the agnolotti special - we're obsessed!

This restaurant is amazing. Sure, you'll pay a little more, but the food and experience is so worth it. The menu is constantly changing based on the season, and each new dish feels like a delightful food experiment - most of which never go wrong. The food is unique and delicious and always makes me want to come back for more. The serving portions are almost perfect, the staff is knowledgable and friendly, and the atmosphere is cute (even with COVID modifications). This is definitely one of my top restaurants in Denver!
