My SO and I ventured up to Yorkville in order to eat at this restaurant tonight. Considering the generally impressive reviews I had my hopes up for a delicious meal. Unfortunately this was not the case. After a 10 minute wait for a seat, we were shown to a table in the back. It felt as though we had walked... More

A great restaurant. The menu is extensive and the food was very tasty! The service was outstanding and our waiter was very attentive to us. The burrata with prosciutto was a great starter and I had the veal with mushroom dish (Excellent!) My friend had penne vodka which was also excellent. I would go back in a second!

I love Spuntini. They always do a great job. Service. Food. Wine. I've been as part of a couple, four top, and various large groups. If you can, when they offer the Veal Chop Special, get it. It is truly top notch. The only tricky thing I find is reasonable nearby parking.

Spuntini is an intimate restaurant on Avenue Road. Three of us had dinner one night. First came the bread basket and butter, which was good and glasses of tap water. To start we shared the Bufala Mozzarella ($14.50) with vine ripe tomatoes, basil, extra virgin olive oil and balsamic glaze. The toast points were crusty and the flavours delicious. I... More

I wrote a review for this place previously and gave it a 4 out of 5 stars but since then we have been there a few more times and we absolutely love it even more! The service is so great, we always end up using it as the spot to go to for certain occasions. The food is absolutely delicious!

We were 5 couples celebrating a birthday and the restaurant was great. It's a little place just across the street from the Yorkville strip. There is parking across the street which is a huge plus. The food was great and the kitchen had no problem getting our food out in good time. My only reason for not giving a sold... More

We eat out probably 3-4 times a week and we can easily say that this is THE BEST restaurant we've ever been to! I mean the taste is just out of this world! If they brought a restaurant here in London, Ontario, I would help them fill it each and every day of the year. We were in Toronto for... More

We come here often for a nice dinner out in Yorkville. Either a special occasion or just a much needed night out. The food is always fabulous, and is only made better by the service. While the restaurant can be dark and sometimes a bit loud...it is a gem in Toronto and well worth the trip to Yorkville

It was a bank holiday in Toronto and a Monday and we appealed to the concierge at our hotel, The Intercontinental Yorkville to suggest a venue for dinner. She made rservations at Spuntini, within walking distance of Bloor Street. She told us that it was one of her favorite dining places. She was right. The food was outstanding and the... More
