A good choice

Food and service are good. We had an organic red wine from Argentina, which we loved. We liked everything we ordered. Specially the Empanadas, they are small though. Only downside: if seating inside, all the kitchen smells are noticeable; Since it features an open kitchen. Yet, nice to see a... read more

I'm from Argentina, so going to a meat restaurant seemed to be a good idea. The food quality was not good, sweetbread was overcooked, and ribs were full of fat. but the worst part was that that night, 3 out of 4 people that were in the restaurant got sick. I needed to stay in the hotel the entire following... More

loved the ambiance- went on a Friday night at about 10 pm and the atmosphere was lovely. Best pasta I've had in a while - the carbonara shouldn't be missed. Portions are quite generous!

Being alone I was looking for somewhere simple and above all quick. And I got it at Spuntino. Empanada siciliana and bife de lomo premium: sure bet!! Waiter not too keen on speaking, but eager to satisfy the customer. It won't be my last time!!

Nice place to have lunch in polanco. The terrace is very nice and service is great. The beef is very good as are the salads. I will go again.

Please disregard the 5-star review I wrote for Spuntino 7 months ago. Tonight I returned looking forward to another great meal and was extremely disappointed. In fact, I requested the check after three bites of the meal (steak and fries). The wait staff asked what the problem was -- quality of meat, seasoning, how it was cooked? Regrettably it was...

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.

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.
