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.

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.

I've been here several times and have never been disappointed! They have a truly impressive wine selection (try the bourbon-aged Cooper & Thief!) and the food is absolutely delicious. They have several gluten-free options and know how to keep things Celiac-friendly too. It is a bit expensive but still a great place to go for a date night or a night out with your favorite pals.

We went on a weekend night, a few loud parties ... wonderful food, staff, etc. A regular haunt of ours and, yes, we expected some extra noise on a Saturday evening. But the presence of extra kids at various parties made it difficult for us to hear one another ... And, the extra, large parties made service a tad slower than usual. Not worse - wonderfully helpful, courteous, etc - but, slower :)

Otherwise, chalk up one more wonderful meal at Spuntino's.

Had a wonderful family outing. The family loved the Tapas style eating. Food was excellent to good. Service was excellent. My family felt the chairs were very uncomfortable and we will ask for a booth in the future. Good time excellent variety. Relatively expensive based on the quantity of food, but a nice treat for something special and new.

While the food is tasty, it is quite expensive considering everything is small plates (emphasis on “small”). A $24 cheese platter is barely enough for two people to share. The larger plates are adequate but again pricey. The pasta dishes are half the size you’d expect but the same price as a standard restaurant - $16 for carbonara and you have to share? It’s a kid size portion at best.
