There must have been 16-18 in our dinner group. We had a somewhat separate area but ordered from the full menu. You can imagine how many different choices there were! All arrived at the same time, and everyone at our end of the table was absolutely and thoroughly pleased with every choice. The waiters were at hand throughout and made... More

We had a good time and delicious food at Spuntini's. Athens location was great for us-- in Yorkville a few blocks from our hotel. Our waiter, David, was informative and attentive. The chickpea spread served with the bread was delicious and great for diners who don't want butter or olive oil. We shared a Caesar salad that was divided in... More

Very busy and can be quite noisy when crowded. Food is okay, but the tables are very close together. It is not somewhere to go if you want a quiet evening.

Yes it's summer and restaurants want quick turnarounds but this was ridiculous. The waiter had no table manners and was only interested in up selling and getting us out of there as fast as possible. The food, as per usual though, was excellent. Gnocchi was light, the mushroom pasta had excellent flavour, and the lamb was succulent. The atmosphere was... More

We celebrated a birthday here. It is a quaint Italian restaurant with a extensive wine list, a wonderful menu and outstanding service. Our waiter Dave, was so attentive and through. It was a pleasure having him wait on us. He was knowledgable of the area and gave us lots of tips.

We walked to the front and were struck by the location, ambiance and quaintness. Yorkville is a great part of town to walk around in Toronto. Try to reserve a table on the terrace if possible. However, each table seems very intimate. Great place for business, date, or family events. Initially, a gentleman came to assist us with finding our... More

We have been to Spuntini numerous times and loved the food and wine choices.But we were turned off by fact that they allow some parties get drunk and behave badly and make too much noise which ruins the atmosphere (

Whenever I vacation in Toronto, I make it a point to eat at Spuntini. The restaurant is warm and cozy and has seating near a terrasse like window if you enjoy outdoor dining.No seat, in my opinion, is bad at this restaurant. It is not a trendy, modern eatery, yet in no way is it tired or out-dated. .The staff... More

Spuntini is situated in Toronto's ritziest area, Yorkville. I have to say, Spuntini is probably one of the best Italian restaurants I've ever been to. The location, ambiance, food, value, and service are no less than 5 stars. The restaurant is so cozy and romantic (perfect for a date!) and the servers are so attentive and knowledgeable about the menu/... More

My wife took me to Spuntini for my birthday - couldn't have picked a better place. Literally from the moment we walked in we were so well attended by the maitre de and the waiter. The service was very attentive and very well paced. Every aspect of the meal was enjoyable. The place itself is very comfortable. The room is... More
