My husband and I had a very romantic, relaxing, and delicious experience at Spuntino.
Spuntino is my favorite restaurant in town. You’ll never go wrong there. Great staff! Super safe for Covid. Please support this great local spot!
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!
Everything was delicious. Will definitely be headed back!
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!
Favorite overall experience in Denver. From the service to the food, this place does not miss a detail.
it got a little chilly outside even though the day had been warm. Once the sun went down, they cold have used their heaters. overall it was a very good experience.
So glad you enjoyed! We're always happy to switch on the heaters anytime a guest asks on nights like that. Thanks!
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.
One of the best restaurants in town with Cindhura's unique approach to Italian. The staff is outstanding, and I never miss Elliot's own amaro.
Loved the experience but didn’t personally like the food. Very cool place, I will keep an eye on the menu and certainly try again.
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
♥️♥️♥️ So, so glad! Thank you for such amazingly kind words!
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!
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!
Always a great meal! They’ve done a great job adapting to covid needs.
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!
Truly an incredible experience from start to finish - the service, the food.
Try to clean up your marquee space...especially heating duct outlets etc to make the place more welcoming. Otherwise you product is great!
Everyone we came in contact with was friendly and accommodating. We so appreciate that you are able to stay open and a huge thank you to folks who work there under these circumstances. It’s very much appreciated.
Spuntino delivers every time. Amazing food and great people! So happy to see this restaurant thriving with their outdoor seating option, we feel so confident that they are taking every possible step to keep us safe while we're there! We'll be back soon because we couldn't try everything we wanted this time!

Service and food were fabulous. Please go support the wonderful team. The pasta are handmade and incredibly tasty!
We love this place! The food is amazing!
We felt very safe dining in the tent. Everyone was observing social distance and being respectful, wearing masks etc. We had a wonderful dinner, hope to return soon!
EXCELLENT SERVICE and EXCELLENT PASTA with Indian influence. The only thing missing on the menu was more protein and vegetable selection. We had a wonderful night.
Great!! The crew at Spuntino delivered delicious food again, and they have successfully developed a nice outdoor space that does not feel like a parking lot. My guests were impressed and we will return!
We had a great dinner for 2 especially during these crazy times. Thanks for a lovely evening.
Always a fun food & wine adventure! Classic fare with interesting twists plus the tent makes everything a special party. Thank you Spuntino gang for fighting the fight and knocking this one out of the park. Take that Covid.
We were so happy to return to Spuntino after a long absence (on our side). Every bite was delicious and unusual, and the presentation was beautiful. Wine selection, cocktails and mocktails were great, and we were made to feel very welcome.
Wonderful as always. Many new and different items on the menu.
Great idea with the tent. Felt safe and everything was great.
I have been there many times and always have a great meal for a reasonable cost. It’s our favorite Italian restaurant in Denver.
Everything was amazing!
Make sure to end with the Zeppole
Elliot is awesome as front of house.
We love his homemade digestifs.
All the food items were delicious. The Polpo was outstanding.
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!
always a good ride. always interesting dishes and tasty cocktails. servers are always knowledgeable and pleasant.
Most elegant meal I've ever had under a tent. Plenty of fresh air and space. These guys pandemic.
Great outdoor dining destination in the Highlands.
Food was unique and the owners are wonderful. Wine list is superb. Best pulpo I've ever had!
Great outside atmosphere, considered the pandemic! Food and service were excellect
Lovely evening. I downgraded ambiance because we were in a tent due to COVID 19. But still a lovely evening with delicious food and outstanding service
