“Nearly 50 Wines by the Glass Paired with Tapas”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

Like the nicely-designed space and the inviting, spacious lounge.

Spuntino offers an extensive wine list with nearly 50 wines by the glass, 100+ Italian wines and a reserve wine list with top names.

The menu features tapas, small plates, meant for sharing. The portions are bigger than you'd expect for tapas and delicious.

Solid choices are the Salumi and Formaggi plates served with perfectly grilled crostini, the bruschetta with ricotta cheese and roasted grapes, the Arancini, the spicy meatballs, perciatelli con pesto pasta and the INCREDIBLE and meaty Salumi pizza topped with Prosciutto, crumbled sausage, Capocollo and Cacciatorini.

“Great Italian wine”
Reviewed August 30, 2012 via mobile

Ive been three times and each time I left with the same impression. I absolutely love their all Italian wine selection I haven't had a bad glass yet. Unfortunately the food is only ok. it's not as hot as I would like and the dishes aren't anything special flavor wise. It's fun to be ale to try a few things and the food bill is usually only a few more dollars then the alcohol bill, but I think I'd rather go sit at the bar and drink wine and get gellato. The gelato is delicious. My husband got chocolate with amaretto on top and the whip cream is so fresh tasting. It's actually a shame the food isn't better because this place could be great.

Thank Jerseylili

“Italian hors o'deurves”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

Hidden away in Clifton, nj is Spuntinos. This is my second visit to the restaurant, and although it can be pricey the food is good. Everything is served appetizer style to be shared among your table guests. Service is quick and attentive.

“Tiny tapas”
Reviewed May 24, 2012

Overall it was good although a bit expensive.Service was good but a little overbearing and I really hate it when they take my wine glass before the wine is finished. We also had to wait for the manager to fix our bill which was over by $10.00. They are new so maybe this will improve. They had over 100 different wines but they were all Italian so that was a drawback for me.Nothing against Italian wine but it was supposed to be a wine bar and I would have liked different options. Also $15 for a glass of Chianti is a bit ridiculous. And yes I know it is tapas, but I am not sure the size of each dish is worth the price. If you are a fan of Spanish tapas, this is probably not the place for you.
