Contemporary Italian
Germano Fabiani has sparked a renaissance in Little Italy with his newest venture, Germano's PIATTINI (small plates), a contemporary Italian kitchen and bar and upstairs cabaret, with a small plates and paired brews menu that excites the palate and offers something for every taste. Germano has turned the 200 year old establishment into a "terzo", a home away from home and work. The scrumptious menu—try the Tartufo Bianco (white truffle pizza), Carciofi Fritti (Prosecco battered fried long stem artichokes) and Polpette Kobe (Kobe beef meatballs)-- is allergy aware (this is a nut-free facility) and includes vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options...full bar and wine list and wines by the glass (3 oz. & 6 oz.), beers by the bottle and a selection of draft IPA’s, stouts, ales/pils, seasonals /wheats and imports on rotation, creative cocktails, and our continued commitment to bring you an outstanding lineup of cabaret--jazz, opera, urban folk, bluegrass, theater, Broadway and more--
