A word from Piattini (fka Specchio)
Specchio was changed to piattini with the same management of chef Gino .
Piattini serves up the finest Venetian and Northern Italian small plates in a contemporary setting. Chef Gino has created a menu featuring Italian tapas, prepared daily with the freshest, highest quality ingredients. At Piattini you’ll feast on Italian dishes ranging from wild boar meat balls to pork chops with gorgonzola, all of which pair exceptionally well with an imported Italian beer or a glass of wine or one of our specialty cocktails
Piattini resonates with lively ambiance, which is enhanced by a contemporary design, complete with a nightly screening of a Fellini or other beloved Italian movies, projected high over the open kitchen. The bar is a popular gathering place for the the after work crowd and locals alike. Step into the dining room for an intimate date, or bring in your large group to dine upstairs, where we can accommodate up to 40 people in our private mezzanine

Diner Reviews
  • "I used to come to this restaurant with friends who lived in the neighborhood. Since they moved, I haven't gone to Specchio in years, and I decided to try again when a friend of mine came to visit me. The cook might have changed, but pizza is definitely not what you would expect in an italian restaurant. Good starters and decent main courses, but not good as before. Too bad."

  • "I loved the lighting fixtures. It was pretty loud so in fairness perhaps the wait staff couldn't always hear us properly. The food was good but the wait staff was a bit disengaged when we tried to get their attention and maybe that's the their way of providing the guests with a sense of privacy in a crowded dining setting. The wait staff also consistently delivered the wrong order to the wrong person at our table. I liked their salads very much."

  • "We went for Valentine's Day and the prix fixe menu was ok. Portions seemed smaller than when we dined on the same day last year. The ravioli was fantastic, just wish I'd gotten one or two more."

  • "The place was practically empty at 8pm on a Saturday night - not a good sign. I decided to dine anyways. I would say that I have made better meals myself, and i hate cooking. I compared the pizza to frozen pizza's I have made. Cheap and always seating. Wouldn't recommend other wise."

  • "My husband and I went here for a date night, hoping to find a good Italian place in our neighborhood to replace our favorite place that closed some time ago. Sadly, this is not that place. Too loud, even when only half-full, and the food was ok but nothing exceptional."

  • "Best Tagliatelle w/ Salmon in the city! Prix Fixe Menu always a hit."

  • "We were early (the first seated), but the service was fantastic throughout, even when it got more crowded. Very good food, a bit salty for my taste, but most food is too salty for me. I liked that they used a lot of garlic. The calamari appetizer, pizza, walnut pesto and salmon all fresh tasting and well seasoned."

  • "We went on a Monday night @ 6 pm before Thanksgiving - guess most folks were out of town. We were the only group in the restaurant at least until 7p. We got excellent service, wonderful tasty appetizers (the small plate veggie ricotta was superb!), and ordered one of the best red wines in the place! The special was filet mignon w/ mushroom-sauce - yummy!! Cooked to perfection :) We were impressed by the desserts - sorbet w/ cookie & cannoli."

  • "Very impressive atmosphere, presentation, food and wine. Two visits and will be back again. Perfect for a quick bite at the bar or a full sit down meal. Expectional Italian wine list and very affordable per glass prices. Consistently solid and flavorful foods from the buratta appetizers to the pastas to the steak and salmon and canollis. Top that with knowledgeable and professional service this is a great go to place for me and my friends."

  • "My husband and I had a weekday dinner at Specchio and enjoyed the delicious food and welcoming, attentive service. We arrived for an early dinner and were the only ones in the dinning room for a while. Made us wonder, but as it got later the restaurant began to fill up with other groups enjoying the bar and the restaurant. We ordered rigatoni with a nice tomato based sauce and the radicchio risotto, and both entrees were delicious. We look forward to returning to try some of the other items on the menu."
