Spuntino is great place for drinks and tapas. They have a great selection of cheese and meet boards and they have very tasty pizza as well. Portions are small but that is what tapas is and the prices are reasonable. They have a huge wine and drink selection. Great place for couples or a first date. The place is very... More

No reservation needed. Nice staff. Good selection of tapas. Unfortunately, no white wine flight available. Great for couples or small groups. Nice atmosphere.

I've been here multiple times. It's usually busy during prime hours as it is a popular place. The menu overall is very solid. There is an extensive wine, beer and cocktail list. Something for everyone. My favorite dishes: Octopus, Ricotta Meatballs, Orecchiette with Sausage and Broccoli Rabe.

What a fun idea--wish more restaurants would offer the small plates. We got to try so many different things, and isn't that what we all like to do? The salads were good and the 3 bruschette we tried were excellent. Mussels were ok--the cream sauce is a bit heavy. We also liked the brussels sprouts, the octopus and the various... More

We decided to give this spot a try based on the reviews and wow, it was terrific. We had been given a 20 minute for a table but we lucked out with a couple of seats at a high top table near the bar. The server came by, gave us terrific recommendations and we enjoyed a couple of appetizers, a... More

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
