A word from Germano's Ristorante
Germano's, located in the quaint gaslight section of downtown Montgomery, has been consistently delighting patrons with the finest Italian cuisine since 1986. Chef owner Domenico Germano hails from the Molise region, but Germano's fare showcases a mastery of authentic sauces and preparations from all over Italy. Germano's diverse menu includes fresh seafood, the finest center-cut beef and veal, and wonderful pasta dishes, all prepared with heart and soul, and served by a knowledgeable and friendly staff. Domenico's wife, Angelina prepares all of the delicious desserts, including her renowned raspberry pie and tira mi su. Wine lovers can rejoice as Germano's wine list is one of the most extensive in Cincinnati, including an unparalleled selection of aged Italian classics. Germano's accommodates private parties and offers carry-out, including a limited family-style carry-out menu. When dining at Germano's, let Chef Domenico know you're there. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "The decor is dated, the menu is dated. If you are looking for a nice place to go in the 1970's then this is your spot. I had the veal parm and my wife had the shrimp & scallops. I'm not a 'sender-backer' but I cam about as close to sending something back for lack of flavor as I ever have. Bland on both dishes. Menu needs a refresh. Staff was pleasant but once it got busy our server had a hard time keeping up."

  • "Had a great meal at Germano's the other night. Food is the star at this restaurant; but you'll get a bit of a sticker shock when the bill comes due. Our foursome did not order any drinks..drank a lot of water. We had four entries, two appetizers and two desserts and with tip, the bill was $255.00. On the plus side, you have to try their Sea Scallops - we had an order of pan-seared scallops and we also had an order with scallops in pasta - out of this world!"

  • "i had a meeting for my sales team and wanted to treat them to a nice dinner. Germano's accomidated us nicely with a party of 8 and we had a fabulous time. Everyone raved about the food (I had the scallops and they were to die for - really amazing) and the wine list was excellent. We had a fantastic time and the bill did not kill my budget. I would highly recommend that you go to Germano's as often as possible!"

  • "I had been to Germano's about 15 years ago and had been disappointed. We decided to go back and give it a second try. I still was disappointed with the food. Salad was very simple. They serve bread with only olive oil, nothing else. My entree was very ordinary. Lack of taste. I have no intention of returning."

  • "Loved the Caesar Salad. Ingredients tasted very fresh; the anchovies were almost white and also very tasty without being too "salty". I was somewhat disappointed in my gnocchi, which tasted much heavier than I expected. Next time, I'll make another choice, as the menu is very extensive. Wine was lovely. The Fresh Raspberry Pie was wonderful. We were very pleased with the excellent service. And my dining companions seemed quite happy with their meals."

  • "I love Germano's. I have been coming back for years. The food and service are always top notch, and I always get the raspberry pie. With the current economy situation, it is wonderful to see Germano's hasn't compromised a thing. I know when I go there I will always be happy I did."
