Italian
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.

While our waitress was pleasant, she was all over the place. We ordered our appetizers and she attempted to take our menus. When several of us asked to keep our menus to order more food she still tried to take our menus. We had to ask several times for missing food, wine was mixed up and she didn’t bring us the correct order. We felt rushed to getting our food and eating- then to leave quickly. She gave us the bill without asking if we wanted anything else. As we were dividing up the bill (bill was in front of our friend with her calculator out) and the waitress tried to take the billfold- without the bill. I’m not sure if this was her first day or week but she was not a good waitress. I understand it was busy, but we probably would have ordered more wine or food had she not rushed us or tried to take our menus several times.

I just hope we don’t sit in her section again.

We asked for rounds with our service. We got everything at one time. Lots of plates on the table at one time and dinner was way fast because we got everything at same time. Not happy and even thought my husband and I have had good times there I don’t think I will be able to get my sisters and there husbands to come back with us again.

We go here every year for New Years Eve. This New Years it was ok. There was many delays on bringing out the food. The kitchen was very behind and we were told several times how backed up they were. Cappuccino machine was broken and instead of telling us it was broken they just gave us ice cold cappuccino that had to be returned. This is one of my go to restaurants and I was disappointed.

I’ve dined at Spuntino’s a number of times over the years, both for full dinner and just tapas in the bar area. It is usually a wonderful experience with no complaints on food or service. Unfortunately this time wasn’t the same.

Lack of decent service, knowledgeable staff and quality food all failed this time around.

All in all this experience left a bad taste in my mouth and my boyfriend’s first time dining there he was not impressed!

Place was alright, I don’t think I’ll ever go back. Went for NYE dinner and made reservations. Sat right next to the window, it was freezing. Our waiter started off good then it pretty much went south. Sat for 20 minutes at the table waiting to be greeted with water. The server had to ask us what food we received because they weren’t running our food (as a server you should know what food your table has and has not received). On several occasions the servers came to us with food we didn’t order, it was uncomfortable for everyone. Tad overpriced for the quality and service. Thanks!

The food was delicious. However, that tastebud experience canceled out from the service received. The initial person who came to our table to ask what beverages we would like had a complete attitude it seemed like she did not like us at all and we’ve only sat down for about two minutes. It looked like she had a long day but there was no need for eye rolling, heavy sighing and glared looks. Also our utensils and dinnerware we’re all dirty. We had to ask the waitress to take them back. The waitress only checked on us one time. The second time she checked on us she did it in passing, (she walked by and did not stop when asking “how’s the food?”). Patricia Sellers 11:45 party of 3 12/21/19.

Food was not what I have come to expect from Sputino. Eggplant meatballs were gummy. The fresh pasta pomodorro was undercooked with the pasta stuck together. In clumps the pane with prosciutto was covered in dry rosemary which overwhelmed the prosciutto

The saving grace was the fritto zucchini and the very pleasant server

Our waitress was a knowledgeable and much appreciated asset to the dinner. The truffle items were incredible and I really enjoyed the nice service and especially the excellent vintage lighting. She was kind enough to bring a candle for my partners dessert for his birthday. I strongly recommend if you are looking for something special to celebrate a nice occasion or if you just fancy like that!

Expected more from this Italian tapa bar....saw great reviews but the overall experience was not very good. We had a table of 6 and ordered several appetizers, sides and main meals. The tapa meat balls were very small and only 4 per serving - taste was good but the portion again was small. Ordered the meat/cheese platter which should have come before our small plates but came later - also only served 3 slices of bread to share and had to request more to share with the meal. Some of our other main meals (pasta, steak, etc.) came with the tapas? I understand the concept of tapa portions to share but this took tapa sharing to a new low level. Overall, the service was disjointed, portions very small, quality was fair and would be hard pressed to go back anytime soon.
