About

SPUNTINO (spoon’tîno), noun:

A snack or an informal meal

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 Alps Provisions (Long Island City, NY), Blooming Hill Farms (Monroe, NY) and Goffle Farm Poultry (Wycoff, NJ).

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.

Awards & Recognition

Spuntino Wine Bar & Italian Tapas takes a great deal of pride in our food, wine, and service. We are honored to be recognized and continue to strive to make Spuntino the place for great Italian tapas, the best selection of wine and a one of a kind dining experience!
