We arrived at just after 6pm and were seated immediately in an area away from the already full bar. I was glad of this as the bar area was soon filled by the rapidly forming queue and made it very cramped.
Service was good, a little slow initially perhaps but not too much, and as I was expecting to be rushed through to seat others it was actually a surprise. Perhaps they were serving drinks to those in the queue and were therefore kept busy.
For the two of us we ordered the four sliders between us, a portion of shoestring fries each with a bottled lager and a coke. The fries were well cooked to a delicious crisp and tasty. The sliders were all tasty too, but didn't stand out from any burgers I've eaten outside of the well known fast food joints. As a result, a small burger (and the two sliders would make a very small burger) and fries with a coke for over £15 is not good value.
That is the impression we were left with of Spuntino. The food is tasty enough, but not as good as they think (and its prices indicate they thinks it is very, very good). If prices matched the simple food they are serving I would've been more impressed but whilst people are queuing out the door to see and be seen in the uber-cool setting they have no reason to change and who can blame them.
We left feeling we'd not eaten a full meal and for nearly £40 for two for a very simple meal that is not cool. As a result Spuntino's isn't either despite its efforts to be so.
