The Mediterranean Sea shaped some of the world's most ancient civilizations, which gathered by its shores to dive for the delicious shish kebob, tabbouleh, and baba gannouj growing beneath its crystal waves. Transport to this legendary culinary coast with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of fine Mediterranean cuisine at Poco Piatti, located in Perrysburg.
Poco Piatti's sun-drenched menu offers small, shareable plates of tapas and mezze, as well as pizzas and entrees infused with the flavors of Greece, Spain, Italy, and the Middle East, served and enjoyed at a leisurely pace while guests ignite the room with chatter. Appetites amplify at the sight of a glossy table layered with plates of grape leaves, calamari, crab cakes, and crepes. For a spectacle and show, try the saganaki kasseri, a Greek kasseri cheese flambéed at the table and lauded for its heartfelt renditions of 1930s jazz ballads ($4.50). If restaurant-goers prefer more of a good thing, lamb shank osso buco ($15.95) and salmon primavera ($18.95) come in large plates with a choice of two sides. Sated diners leave Poco Piatti intoxicated by the golden glow of the walls, the bar-side mural of rolling Mediterranean hills, and the cocktail-wielding Sirens singing for their return.
Established in 2006, Poco Piatti serves as Toledo's original tapas restaurant, and provides diners with a unique dining experience, with dishes ranging from Greek classics including moussaka and Italian-inspired dishes such as chicken parmesan sliders to Middle Eastern-style grape leaves with ground beef and lamb. Poco Piatti focuses on fresh ingredients, uses top-cut meats, and creates homemade sangria and innovative cocktails. Paired with a friendly staff, this tapas restaurant not only hopes to keep customers happy with flavorful dishes, but comfortable in this unique atmosphere. The owners have designed the interior to resemble a Spanish villa—the mural above the bar colorfully depicts rolling Mediterranean hills, and a stone oven churns out freshly baked pita bread or lights the miniature Olympic torches of waiters jogging by.
