Great Italian tapas. The charcuterie is great. Nice things slices of meat. Loved the specialty cocktails and a decent craft beer selection. We weren't big fans of the tapas with red sauce. But that could just be a pallet thing. Would still highly recommend.

Ambiance, variety and atmosphere - you'll love coming to Spuntino. Just know what to expect! The small plates can add up, so gauge accordingly. TIPS - they will bring you bread, olive oil and grated cheese if you ask - which can extend your enjoyment! (Order cheese and meat to pair with the the toasty bread - golden!) Nice wine... More

Small dishes of deliciousness at Spuntino...What excitement you will have if you are a lover of Italian cuisine. The variety maybe overwhelming if you love Italian cuisine. Note, the manager Brain said mostly everything is made on premises. I was able to try many of the delicious Tapas. I must revisit.

Spuntino has a very nice ambiance during the evening and the food and service were very good. Nice place to go for drinks and dinner when you're looking for something a bit out of the ordinary for this area. Location provides plenty of free parking.

We were visitors to this area and the restaurant looked a good bet for a nice night out. Our choice was spot on for great food, exceptional service (thanks Heather & staff) and has become one of a favourite memories of our US trip. The pre-dinner drinks of a Mediterranean Mule & a Rob Roy started the evening on a... More

Spuntino's take on the Italian Feast of The Seven Fishes is fantastic! Having grown up for years with traditional Italian Feast of The Seven Fishes I can tell you that Spuntinos modern take on this classic is well worth a try. You can order it with or without wine pairings. The bronzino was my favorite along with the salt Cod... More

My girlfriend and I went to Spuntinos Wine & Bar Tapas Restaurant and had a wonderful 4 course Truffle Dinner. The Food, Service & ambience was great. The food topped everything. The cost was very reasonable and we enjoyed the meal. We met the executive Chef, Josh Bernstein, and he was very gracious and recommended the dishes that we had.... More

Yummy food. Quality service. Glitches galore but Brian, the GM, more than compensated for unexpected problems. Our business group had a wide assortment of meals and beverage. Our transportation arrived. Our bill did not. We waited and waited. Ah. The proverbial glitch but Brian turned it into the proverbial gift with grace and kindness. His efforts will travel far and...

I like the Italian tapas style of serving. I usually order 2 dishes and my friends do too. We share the food and it's usually very good. I'm not much of a drinker, and I don't like the wine. Great coffee and dessert too. All around good place to eat

My husband and I go here whenever we can for date night. We are always happy with the menu variety and food quality. I love the small portions so that I can try many different dishes. The bruschetta are yummy, my favorite is the goat cheese and caramelized onions. The meats and cheeses, pizzas, and pastas are always good too.... More
