226 Newbury St., Boston
Inspired by Italian enotecas, or wine bars with tapas-like nibbles, piattini is in itself a term for “little plates,” which is what guests will find at this locale.
It’s fitting that this charming little wine bar lives on picturesque, stylish Newbury Street, where diners can sip Italian wines while watching the passers-by as if they were in Rome themselves.
The tiny restaurant, which has just 14 tables inside, is romantic and perfect for a leisurely meal, and an order of a glass of wine brings with it a card detailing the region, tasting notes, and any fun facts.
Heavily Italian, the wine list is long, varied, and fairly priced. And if it’s too hard to pick just one, Piattini has compiled five well-matched wine flights.
