Let me tell you how incredibly disappointed I was with Spuntini!

My now husband (fiancée at the time) had never been and I had always said how I wanted to take him because I loved it and it was my all time favourite restaurant! Knowing this... he decided that he was going to take me there and planned on proposing that night.

He had called and made reservations well in advanced and told the manager his "plan" and asked that we be seated at a romantic, quiet table. Upon arriving – it was packed (which I wasn't surprised because it normally is). However, our reservation was for 8 and didn't get seated until 9:15!!! It was obvious they were over capacity...and had packed people in like cattle to maximize space. As one server said "It's organized and complete chaos". Not only was it incredibly uncomfortable considering we had to stand for an hour before being seated but when we were finally shown to our table it was in between two other tables with absolutely no privacy.

I had over heard the couple sitting next to us; complain that she found a 'washer' from the frying pan in her food!!

I had ordered the lamb that night since it's one of my favorites. Well I was in for a surprise. I got VERY sick and my husband rushed me to the hospital because I had a severe case of food poisoning! I was up all night and unfortunately my husband’s plans to propose were ruined.

I called and left a message twice and sent them a letter, letting them know about our experience and how disappointed we were. We were never acknowledged – no return calls and no return e-mails!! Finally my husband got a hold of Furnando after a week of trying and he never apologized and was VERY rude! I was in disbelief that we were treated so poorly considering I was once a regular! We didn’t want a ‘free be’, but instead we wanted to bring it to his attention in hopes that it didn’t happen to anyone else. He blew us off and pretty much said that he didn’t have time to listen to us. He said there was no way that I got sick from their food and how dare us call to complain. Instead he blamed ME saying that it must have been something else I ate that day. Funny though, that was my first meal that day.

All I can say is this…I will never recommend Spuntini to anyone simply because of the way we were treated. My husband and I have dined at some of the finest restaurants in Toronto and across the world, and I can tell you this…it doesn’t matter how much money you spend on advertisement – word of mouth is the BEST advertisement and I promise to spread the word.

It’s pretty sad considering so many stars have dined there and we were treated like the rats on the street. Yet, I can assure you if I was Jennifer Lopez calling to complain I would be telling a different story.

I do not recommend this place.

4 out of 5 people found this review helpful. One of my favourite Italian restaurants. Upscale dining but the portions are generous. Try the seafood appetizer - you will not be disappointed. Reservations recommended.
I recommend this place.
