We have been here several times, but don't think we will be back for awhile if we do. The atmosphere is still nice and a long wine list but the food choices keep changing. When there are good staples on the menu they should stay. I can understand if chefs want to change the menu due to seasonal choices, but... More

I really like the casual cool industrial feel of the place. Great bar scene - wide selection of wines at various price points, great specialty drinks & a nice selection... More

Big bar area with 50 to 60 seats total allows you to eat at the counter or at one of the bar hight table if you do not wish to seat in the main dining room.... More

The experience at Spuntino's was wonderful, from the first discussions about an event to be held to the evening itself. The food, buffet style, was very, very good, with interesting items. However, the service and care of the staff was absolutely incredible. In my almost 70 years I have never experienced such caring by wait-staff. Brian, the manager, was just... More

Our server started out great, bringing us our bottle wine and offering advice on what/how much to order. When the runner came to put something on the table, she knocked over my husband's full...

Our waitress was friendly and knowledgable regarding the menu and made some awesome suggestions for food choices. The food was a little slow rolling out of the kitchen but everything was really tasty and not salty. Overall very satisfied guests and one of the best draws is that you can try lots of different plates and not feel stuffed by... More
