Very nice early dinner. Wait staff was prompt and very friendly. My son got spaghetti with three large meatballs and I got a grilled chicken and Gorgonzola salad. Both were delicious.

Gluttons for punishment, we tried for the 3rd time to order from this establishment only to be once again disappointed. We are neighborhood people surrounded by good restaurants and this is not one of them. We got chicken parmesan sandwiches without mozzarella: a caesar salad...with chopped and mushy lettuce: doughy bread: a pizza that had caramelized onions on it: and previously frozen zucchini sticks. Totally disappointed, family, friends, and neighbors will not be ordering again...3 strikes and you're out! We will never offer a recommendation.More

If we are not here on a weekly basis, we are ordering from here. Something for everyone from traditional Italian to salads to vegetarian options. Quick slice, a pie or hero for home or a sit down dinner. Food and service is always consistent and...great. Don't miss the pizzettes or paninis!More

Today I ordered 3 Gluten Free Pizza doughs for an at home DIY pizza night and they were exceptional! They are not only Gluten Free, but Dairy Free. All 3 doughs withheld their chosen toppings and didn’t flop once cooked! My sister whose been gluten...and dairy free for 7 years felt like she was eating real pizza again!More

Spuntino St. James is my favorite local restaurant. The food is always delicious and the bread is beyond amazing. The staff is always happy, friendly and very accommodating. We eat in and take out and always equally wonderful.

I have reviewed this restaurant before and I still stand by my original thoughts. The lunch special gives you enough food for two people. Delicious pasta dishes, pizza, salads and soups! Try this place and you will not go wrong!

A group of old classmates gathered at Spuntino's for a meal during our 50th high school class reunion weekend. It was honestly a random pick that paid off. They handled our large group (14) with ease even though we didn't quite understand why we needed...to wait for the entire group to arrive before being seated. The food was tasty and the pricing was appropriate. It made for a great evening of catching up with lively conversation.More

This is a very popular and noisy restaurant, so we decided to go at 5 o’clock on a weekday so that it would be easier to hear each other. As it turns out, it is still not easy to hear because of the metal ceiling,...but the restaurant was just a bit quieter than usual. The bread was yummy and the salads were large and tasty. Our friend had the salad rustica which was packed with lots of goodies including grilled eggplant. My large southwest salad had a nice portion of avocado, a generous portion of bacon and tasty grilled chicken. My husband’s seared tuna was prepared beautifully and served with a tossed salad but the rice was tasteless. Our friend ordered a nice spinach salad but his veal parmigiana was so tough that he sent it back. They replaced his meal with an okay shrimp parmigiana. It seems strange to us that in an Italian restaurant, the Italian entree was the worst of the four.More

Have only been there three times. Dinner and lunch. Typical pizza place only bigger and more extensive menu. Thought the food good but so far have not had anything to know my socks off. If crowded it can get very loud as it has high...ceilings. It was not that bad that I wouldn't go back. Will try one more time and let you know.More

The food here is simply to die for - absolutely delicious. We were a party of 6 and I could not decide on what to have - finally settled on the Eggplant Rollatini with Clams Over Linguine Pasta and I was in heaven. We were...visiting relatives in LI and absolutely loved the menu and my meal was outstanding. Service was impeccable too. I wish we lived closer - Spuntino would be my go-to Italian Restaurant. I am craving that clam linguine right now.More
