Italian
Spuntino Wine Bar & Italian Tapas set out with the goal of introducing a wonderful breadth of world-class international wine that is paired with an expansive Italian, small plate menu. Our wine list and food menu are thoughtfully prepared and selected by a team that strives to introduce our guests to new, fresh Italian flavors.

Spuntino focuses on fresh, local and seasonal ingredients with a menu that changes four times a year. To make sure that we are using the best ingredients available we work closely with a number of farms in the area including Goffle Farm Poultry (Wyckoff, NJ), Blooming Hill Farms (Monroe, NY), and Alps Provisions (Long Island City, NY).

Wine is Spuntino’s second name! With over 50 wines by the glass, over 150 by the bottle, four wines on tap, and three wine flights offered daily, Spuntino really does have something for everyone.

Our waitress was a knowledgeable and much appreciated asset to the dinner. The truffle items were incredible and I really enjoyed the nice service and especially the excellent vintage lighting. She was kind enough to bring a candle for my partners dessert for his birthday. I strongly recommend if you are looking for something special to celebrate a nice occasion or if you just fancy like that!

Server made excellent suggestions. Extensive wine list, excellent food, nice atomsphere. Depending on where you sit, very romantic! We plan on becoming regulars here. Can't say enough good things about this place. Worth the trip!

Expected more from this Italian tapa bar....saw great reviews but the overall experience was not very good. We had a table of 6 and ordered several appetizers, sides and main meals. The tapa meat balls were very small and only 4 per serving - taste was good but the portion again was small. Ordered the meat/cheese platter which should have come before our small plates but came later - also only served 3 slices of bread to share and had to request more to share with the meal. Some of our other main meals (pasta, steak, etc.) came with the tapas? I understand the concept of tapa portions to share but this took tapa sharing to a new low level. Overall, the service was disjointed, portions very small, quality was fair and would be hard pressed to go back anytime soon.

OMG! Spuntino thank you for an incredible experience. Ava our waitress was amazing. She took the time to explain everything on the menu, gave great recommendations and answered all question we had. The fold was out of this world, with the freshness and cooking techniques that came out of that kitchen, kudos to the chef and her staff. By the way the wild mushroom bruschetta and corn risotto uuuhhhmmmaaazzziiinnngggg! Wine choice are extensive to pair with any part of your meal. Great, great experience. Thank you for the great time and meal, we will definitely be back frequently and we will tell everyone to come. Thank Spuntino !

We always enjoy our dinners at Sputino. When we went this past Saturday, however, there was a Seton Hall gathering in the main room, our dining room of choice. We were seated in the front area and the noise from the main dining room (screams, cheers, etc) made it difficult to hear conversations. We were happy to not be in that room, of course, but it was still noisy.
We choose some items from the Peach menu that were a bit disappointing. The peaches were minimal in the three peach dishes we had (peach, tomato, and mozzarella, peach crostata, and peach with honey and chocolate chips) and were not sweet which they should have been since it is the height of peach season in New Jersey. Our usual menu choices were as great as ever.
I also felt our service was rushed, possibly because the main dining room was not available and they were short seating.
We will return and hope our next visit shows improvement in the areas that were not up to par.

Date night great night. Way above par on almost everything as usual. I think there was a special event because the seating dwasifferent ande we sat right behind the hostess stand. Not great. The shrimp bruschetta was delicious but a little more dry than normal, otherwise awesome as always.

I usually have the tapas but this time, we ordered off the brunch menu. There were a number of choices and we all loved what we ordered. I did realize they had a brunch menu so I would recommend it when looking for an earlier meal. Otherwise, go for the dinner. You will not be disappointed.

My dinner and drinks were fine except for the mango salad, which had very little mango and was rather tasteless, but my friend's plates were not. She ordered the wild mushroom bruchetta and it came out cold. She also got the short ribs and found it to be quite salty. She then reordered the bruchetta, which was very good and the meatball tapa, which she wasn't thrilled with.

They were kind enough to remove the mango salad.

We have had very good experiences here in these past, but was very disappointed on Saturday evening. Th elastase was ‘mushy’. We attribute this to either cooking the pasta in a small amount of water, or, what we suspect happened, pre-cooking it earlier in the day, only to reheat it for our dinners. At first, I thought it was just mine, but when I asked my family members, they all had the same experience. We were a group of 7 (one was a baby in a high chair), and they weren’t that busy when we arrived at 6pm. While we will probably try this place again, we will be critical about He dishes going forward. Hope this was just a fluke.
