Great place. Staff very friendly, explained the whole meny for us (we do not speak french). Food was great, big portions with a very good veal/pasta dish. Highly recommended from 2 norwegians :)

We went here for lunch looking for some Corsican food and U Spuntinu did not disappoint. We both ordered “menus.” We were presented with a large plate with veal in a broth with olives, a cannelloni, a chestnut and eggplant dish (from the owner’s grandmother), zucchini beignets and rice with mushrooms. For dessert I had a trio of Corsican sweets, two chestnut based and the other cheese based, my wife had an apple tart. The food was good, the restaurant informal and the owner pleasant. I should say though that my wife did not like the food as much as I did. She was disappointed with the veal and did not care for the chestnut based dishes.

On our first night in Corsica, we set out to try some traditional Corsican food - U Spuntinu was just around the corner and decided to give it a shot.

We walked in and were immediately taken by the relatively small scale of the interior, and it's quaint red and white decor. The only waitress greeted us and quickly got us a table (luckily, as the place is apparently fully booked on weekends), she proceeded to ask us a few questions in order to adjust her recommendations.

Call me crazy, but this is where you see the difference between good and bad service - she walked us through the menu, proposed the discovery platter (an array of traditional Corsican delicacies) and acted as sommelier for their choice of fine Corsican wines.

The meal was nothing short of awesome, the discovery platter is a great choice for those new to Corsican cuisine (like us), our waitress' sealed the deal with her wits - highly recommended!

Really enjoyed this authentic corsican cuisine.Very charmingly decorated,we chose to eat inside as it was autumn, but during the summer months eating outside soaking up the atmosphere would be a must!
