Square Meal Review of Spuntino ?

Masquerading as a grungy Brooklyn-style bar, this thoroughbred from go-getting restaurateur Russell Norman embodies the quintessential American concept of ‘grabbing a bite’. Bare brick interiors, filament bulbs, reclaimed fittings, ear-splitting music and a no-bookings policy are par for the course in cool new Soho, while the short menu takes old stateside classics and turns them into tapas plates (‘small in size, but big on flavour’). Highlights run from crisp-coated aubergine fingers with sprightly fennel and yoghurt dip or juicy bone-marrow sliders with shoestring fries to pizzette laden with chewy cheese and Spuntino’s highly praised truffled egg toast. The ‘flavoursome’ cocktail list also means business, so peruse the short, sharp line-up while you queue for a stool at the bar; it can get feisty, but easy-going, clued-up staff nip any frustrated aggro in the bud.

    Agent Restauranteur :: Spuntino – London W1D

    Italian/Americano style small plates, a popcorn machine and a buzzing vibe – this is counter-top dining at its best. Spuntino had been sitting on my ‘must-go-soon’ list for such a long time I had almost given up hope of going. But after an evening perched on one of those sacred and sought after 26 counter-top-stools, I am so pleased I didn’t. I went with a friend but I think this is perfect for a date; its fun, fairly cheap and full of atmosphere. And the food, the food is super...

    The Apposite :: SPUNTINO

    The air in Soho is different. It carries history and emotion, it emits a certain charm, it’s appealing, it’s sexy, and it makes you want to breathe everything in. Opening a bar or a restaurant in Soho is unlike any other area in London. The newcomer should celebrate Soho culture; it should smell, look and speak Soho. You are trying to invade the heart of London after all; it can either make you or brake you. Standing outside 61 Rupert Street, I looked around and breathed in the Friday night thrill. It took a few moments after walking into Spuntino to know I was in the right place for a true Soho experience. I was there to have some drinks with a friend that was visiting the city...

    Munch My Way :: Spuntino, Soho

    Spuntino is a cosy, electric bar right at the middle of Rupert Street. Spuntino is run by the team at Polpo, which serves italian style tapas in a bar seat setting… I have been to Polpo and here I thorough enjoy both the food and the drinks…

    the dinersaur :: spuntino

    I've mentioned before that Spuntino and Duck and Waffle rank equally as my favourite places in London, but they couldn't be more different in style. Whereas Duck and Waffle is welcomingly bright and airy, Spuntino rocks a grungier, more alternative vibe with its dim lights and inconspicuous entrance. Almost everyone I've come with has mentioned that they've walked past so many times without even noticing its presence, let alone suspected there to be such a great place there!...

    Samphire and Salsify :: Spuntino

    The restaurant is small and slightly squished and everything is very exposed and worn down – very trendy! Stools placed around the edge of the bar seated no more than 26. The buzzy atmosphere at Spuntino more than made up for its lack of comfort. Oh and they don’t take reservations...
