Our family of five had an excellent meal. Service was speedy and professional. Steaks were great, pasta well seasoned and prepared. We took our two young children, and we couldn't have asked for better accommodations.

They have such a great set of meats and Argentinian food: empanadas, chorizo, steaks, etc. But the service is very bad, the waiters are unpolite, slow and forget what we order. There are other much better alternatives on the region.

I kept on passing this place for a few days so I decided to give it a try. Service was good, beef was good, cream spanich was good but nothing is great or memorable. Location is good if you like people watching. A bottle of wine would last u all afternoon. If u r looking for good quality food, this... More

Any time I traveled to mexico city for work, I would always make Spuntino one of my meals. They have an english menu and a fairly good wine selection. The last two times I have been, the service was good, but the pizza had gone a bit down hill.

Had a nice experience there. The pizzas are good. Service wasn't so good. The waiters just don't see you

Bad News: Lasagna was terrible and the service was equally poor. Good News: So far I've been able to keep the lasagna down.

Can't miss this corner location with a huge blue and red sign saying "Spuntino"! We were first attracted to the open outdoor patio with a full restaurant of people, then we decided to try this fun spot for Argentinian food. My fly guy ;) ordered Michelada (beer with lemon juice in a salted rim glass) and I ordered a drink... More

The food is good, the ambiance is pretty well, if you are in polanco and don't know where to eat, this is definitely a very good option.

There are few restaurants in Mexico City that give you Premium quality Argentinian style steaks. Spuntino definitely is one of them. Personally I go very often and eat the Bife de Chorizo... The ambiance is just perfect, by the Lincoln Park in Polanco. Great place to have a great dinner with wine and then a couple of drinks .

Mexico City is overrun, especially Polanco and La Condesa, with Argentinean restaurants. So, in order to get noticed you have to be something special. And Spuntino just isn't that great. The meat is fine. But that is to be expected. They don't have anything of the ilk of special cuts, especially interesting sides, fanfare in the preparation, it is just... More
