A bunch of friends, my wife, and I ventured over to Spuntino's for dinner after a movie at the nearby AMC Clifton IMAX cinema. The food was pretty good. Our salumi plate (which include wild boar cacciatorini and a porchetta) were a nice start to the meal. Our table shared tapas plates that ranged from pork belly, octopus, lamb chops,... More

I see a few people commenting on portion size vs. price, and I agree this is not an "eat til it ouches you" kind of venue... it is a good option if you want to linger with friends, try new flavors and share plates. I went with a handful of co-workers during the current truffle festival promo and we each... More

I would agree with the reviewers that commented on the size of the portions versus the price. We ordered a number of small plates, all of which were very good, but we had to order a lot to have a satisfying amount of food. On the other hand, we ordered wine off the specials list and got a very good... More

Nice atmosphere. Very good wine list. The food preparation is excellent. Problem is, if you walk in hungry and you expect to walk out full, you'd better be a tiny person or be prepared to spend much more than you expected. They need to double up on the portions or cut their prices per plate in half. Oh. And bus... More

I have never been to an Italian tapas restaurant before and didn't know what to expect but this was amazing from start to finish. We chose three starters and I'm vegetarian so we chose three different types of cheeses. They had various jams or sides it was really tasty. I had the sweet potato which was very savory not sweet...

We were at Spuntino for a private party. Many appetizers came through; I enjoyed every one of them despite being a somewhat picky eater. I usually get too full at restaurants because portions are too big, but the Tapas-style dishes were just perfect. They added up to more than a substantial meal, but I never felt overly full. The quality... More

I have recently went to to have Tapas and wine with a significant other at this restaurant. We first arrived and were told of a 30 min wait so we decided to have a glass of vino at the bar while we waited. The wait was about 15 mins and then we received our table. After seating we ordered some... More

As reflected in the reviews by others this is a tapas style Italian restaurant. My wife and I select three items and made a very nice meal of them. Most Italian restaurant tend to serve portions much too large for us so this really fit the bill. The atmosphere and service were more than we expected in was could have... More

It is fun to try different items during a meal, and this tapas style restaurant allows you to do just that. Specializing in Italian favorites, you can have home made mozzarella, risotto, stuffed meatballs, calamari, salmon, and various pastas. The service is first rate, and the wine selection is second to none. About my only complaint with the place is... More
