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

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.
