Sadly, one of my favourite restaurants has temporarily closed due to a recent fire. Building has been torn down. Can't wait until they open up elsewhere.

Was invited to this restaurant during a business trip. Loved it from the first moment. Warm welcome by staff when we entered the restaurant. First impression. Very crowded, very busy, as Italian as it can get on this side of the Atlantic. Well, this is discounting a few places in NY. Our host had picked a selection of menus, which... More

Love this restaurant. I went with a friend for the first time a few months back and the food was so delicious. My mouth waters just thinking about it. We liked the options they offered of having a choice between two sizes for most entres. I'm more a nibbler than anything else, so it was nice to order a few... More

A four alarm fire took out Spuntini Restaurant & Cafe, and neighbouring Sotto Sotto, on Christmas day.

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
