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. Our 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 (we are 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— In the upstairs Cabaret, in speakeasy style, Germano's PIATTINI offers “dinner and a show,”featuring jazz, bluegrass, opera, indie music, theater and, of course, cabaret. The Cabaret opens at 6pm for pre-show dining. Performances begin at 7:30pm unless otherwise indicated. Inquire about cover charge. Performances are for dining patrons only. Please note that while dinner reservations can be made over the phone or online, you are only guaranteed a seat in the Cabaret upon the purchase of your ticket. Tickets may be purchased online or by calling the venue. The Gastropub seats 40 among high-top tables and bar. Renovations include original brick façade and terrazzo brass-inlaid floor. The stunning bar, charcuterie station and tables are constructed of repurposed barnwood with wrought iron hinges and are glass topped with copper fittings. A hand-carved Amish ladder floats above the bar, converted for bar utility. The Barn Room is located on the first level and seats 22 with the focal point a vintage hand-turned spindled marble Chef’s Table. The walls and floor are made of repurposed wood from a red Amish barn and are complemented by hand painted murals. The Tuscan Room seats 50, with exposed brick walls and original Tuscan frescoes; uncurtained windows welcome the pageantry of Little Italy. The Cabaret seats 90 and is outfitted with an in-tune Yamaha G-1 baby grand and sound system. Vintage posters and artwork from the owner’s personal collection adorn the walls of the restaurant.
