    We've tried each of their pastas and they've all been amazing, each with its own kick of Indian taste. Only wish they served a little more portion size for the pastas!

    We have been dying to go to Spuntino for months and it did NOT disappoint. Everything we got was absolutely delicious (like....5 dishes between apps and entrees), the atmosphere was awesome (the spot is so cute and makes for a great date night!), and the owners took the time to come introduce themselves to us and chat with us for a long while. The entire experience was awesome and I HIGHLY recommend visiting!

    This was our first time to the restaurant. We were taking a friend (who is a real foodie) out for a birthday celebration. The food (Capellini Aglio e Olio, Raviolini, and the pasta of the day)--we shared all the dishes, drinks, and especially the service were excellent. We'd recommend this restaurant to anyone. Thank you kindly!

    Great service & food! We sat outside which was very pleasant and comfortable. Inside looked great too but a little bit loud for us.

    SpuntinoResponded on July 21, 2022Thank you James! So glad you enjoyed the patio. Keep in mind that we have a somewhat separate back area of the restaurant that is just about always much quieter than the front with the kitchen and the bar - do feel free to request that when you book in the future.

    Love, love, love Spuntino. Excellent, helpful and friendly staff. The food is artistic, delicious and unique. Think elk carpaccio with elk tartar wrapped inside. Pork belly with a magnificent polenta. Beautiful desserts. If Spuntino were in any other city, it would be one of the best restaurants in that town, too. My east coast friends that tell me you cannot get good Italian food in Denver have to admit that Spuntino hits it out of the park. Other than iffy parking in that area, Spuntino is perfect and that's not their fault.

    The dinner would have been excellent except the pasta was less than al dente--it was under cooked and not edible. We took it home and steamed it the next day so we could eat it. Next time we will asked for it to be cooked more.

    SpuntinoResponded on July 21, 2022Hi Ann, I'm so sorry to hear about the pasta - not nailing al dente with the hand made pastas is one of the worst mistakes we can make and something that's happened very rarely. We identified an issue with our induction burners that we use for the pasta water and should have since corrected the issue. We regret that you suffered from our mistakes and if we can make it up to you, please reach out! Best, Elliot S

    We have been to Sputinos several times and have always had very good experiences. Therefore I was really disappointed with the quality of our food. With the exception of 1 entree, 4 in our party, our entrees were simply not good. They did not even look appealing. I had to send mine back. Pasta was actually tough and an odd brown color with no sauce to speak of. They were very nice and remade the dish but really made us wonder why they had served the other. I am not sure if we will ever return.

    SpuntinoResponded on July 21, 2022Hi there, I'm so, so sorry about the issues with the entrees, the pasta especially. You're absolutely right that the dish shouldn't have left our little kitchen and I can only apologize for the rare lapse in consistency and promise that the feedback is being taken to heart. The last thing we ever want to do is to let down the guests who've long supported us and if there's anything we can do to make it up to you, please reach out. All the very best, Elliot S (Co-owner)

    Food was not to my liking - Italian and Indian really not a good combination. Expected more based on the reviews. Overall just kinda of a weird atmosphere- would not bring business clients.

    SpuntinoResponded on July 21, 2022Hi Mark, I appreciate that you were kinder here and less judgmental about our staff and their hair and tattoos here than in your Yelp review, and that you at least were willing to try something new . I'll be happy to agree with you - if you have "business clients" that that aren't comfortable in an intimate, busy independent restaurant with exceptional staff that happen to have tattoos and dyed hair, it's indeed best to stay away from Spuntino. I'm sure Morton's has plenty of room. Elliot S

    The food concepts were fabulous, I was especially a fan of the masala influences in the elk tartare. The drinks were lovely too. My main complaint is that, while the food was good, it didn’t blow us away, especially considering the price point. While delicious, they missed the mark in terms of flavor and texture. For example, the pappardelle and fettuccine were on the harder side of al dente, which was surprising because we assumed the pasta was made fresh/in house. And while it had a great crunch to it, the potato cake with the granchio/crab was bitingly salty so my table avoided it after the first bite. All in all, 3.75/5 — I’d recommend it to the casual diner looking for good food, but it’s not for foodies as I fear Spuntino may not be consistent in the quality of their execution.

    SpuntinoResponded on July 21, 2022Hi there Arch, Thanks so much for the feedback. I'm so sorry you had to suffer through some of our kitchen's rare mistakes. I won't go into detail, but our kitchen went through a rough couple days and it's clear that there were some lapses, specifically in the pasta cooking. Our pasta all is indeed made by truly by hand (no mechanized extruders/sheeters) and a huge point of pride, so I'm so sorry we let you down. If there's anything we can do to make it up to you, please reach out. Elliot S

    Food and service were absolutely tremendous. Ambiance was miserable. It was brutally hot inside. And the music was so far off from what you would expect an amazing Italian restaurant to have.

    SpuntinoResponded on July 21, 2022Hi Brian, We're so sorry about the temperature that night. While we can generally keep the restaurant quite comfortable on those ~100 degree days, we had some issues during part of our service that evening with the AC which have since been addressed. So sorry you had to deal with that. I'm also sorry to hear you didn't like the music - most people who notice it tend to love our playlist! So glad you still enjoyed the important things and certainly hope for the chance to host you again.

    This was hands down one of best meals and service we've had eating out in the last few years! We were celebrating our anniversary and Spuntino ended up being the perfect restaurant for our dinner. We had a fabulous waiter (John) who gave great suggestions and was perfectly attentive; you could tell he enjoys his job. The food was amazing! I truly enjoyed every course, the flavors were incredible. We briefly met the chef, Cindhura Reddy, who was so humble and kind. We will definitely be coming back!
