Germano's PIATTINI Restaurant Review: Germano’s Trattoria was always a Little Italy standout, what with Germano Fabiani’s Tuscan specialties, attentive servers, romantic frescoed rooms and, especially, the upstairs Cabaret, which features both local up-and-comers and nationally known jazz, operatic, popular, chamber, world music and theatrical ensembles and soloists. Now known as Germano's PIATTINI (“little plates”), the restaurant offers a menu focused on creative small plates and a renovated bar. Menu stars include pizzette (grilled mini pizzas), salumi (cured meats) and such small plates as rosemary-grilled shrimp with chilled Tuscan bean salad, Kobe beef meatballs in San Marzano tomato sauce, and for entrées, mussels and pan-seared branzino. The “bongo bongo” chocolate-drenched cream puffs are still here. The menu is available in the Cabaret as well as the dining room and bar. Note that reservations for the Cabaret are not guaranteed unless a ticket is purchased at the restaurant prior to the show or online.
