Spuntini is a great modern Italian bistro in Concord, just 30 minutes from the Sydney CBD. Spuntini has the warmth and inclusion you expect in a European restaurant, where the food is all about the dining and shared experiences. Spuntini translates to snacks in Italian, something you commonly eat throughout Europe. Think aperitivos, spritzes, cocktails, a glass of wine and shared snacks. This is restaurant is looking to drive a modern take on the Italian restaurant, packing more flavour with premium ingredients and to encourage sharing.

Spuntini has excellent wait staff, who are extremely professional and know how to service their customers. We felt well looked after on our visit. We began with a cocktail each, and there’s certainly a good range of cocktails and wine to be enjoyed. We perused the menu and so much of it looked appealing, so it was difficult to choose. The cuisine at Spuntini is expertly prepared, using premium ingredients and the chef understands flavour combinations very well.

We started with a pizza from the specials board, featuring mushrooms, Proscuitto and mozarella, all cooked in the woodfired oven, it had a nice light dough and was super tasty.

The baby pea tartlet was almost too beautiful, to eat. The small tart was filled with fresh baby peas, sugar snaps, Meredith goats feta, pistachios and pea tendrils all arranged perfectly like a work of art.

The Burrata was also very enjoyable, light and creamy with added flavour from the Truffle honey, brown butter and sage. Pair this with some of their wood-fired housemade focaccia for an entrée.

Although all menu items were of a high standard, we most loved the Westholme wagyu beef rump MBS5+, 250 g for it was the most perfect cut of meat. It was expertly cooked, medium rare. This steak was delicious, it came with a beautiful jus, with an amazing velvety texture and it had depth of flavour.

The pasta is made in house, and we thoroughly enjoyed the Casarecce; or the curly pasta, mixed with Yamba king prawns, pistachios and a prawn chilli oil. We had this with a side of their fire roasted carrots, served on top of a carrot puree with smoked almonds and Meredith goats feta.

We of course had to finish off with a tiramisu, this is a very food version, served with a creamy marscaopone, tia maria and a nice chocolate soil.

It was overall, an excellent dining experience. We see that the venue also offers a tasting menu, in addition to hosting events. Check out their website for more details.
