Mediterranean civilizations invented many lasting concepts, developing astronomy to explain the cosmos and democracy to equally divide lamb kebabs. Split a skewer with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of fine Mediterranean cuisine and non-alcoholic drinks at Poco Piatti 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. Appetites amplify at the sight of plates decorated with stuffed grape leaves ($7.50) and baba ganouj, ($7) composed of fire-roasted eggplant and creamy tahini. For a spectacle and show, try the traditional saganaki kasseri ($5), Greek cheese flambéed at the table while a waiter tap dances the tune of Hot Hot Hot. Lamb shank osso bucco ($19) and salmon primavera ($19), each joined on large plates by a choice of two sides, round out a long list of protein-rich dishes. Sated diners leave Poco Piatti intoxicated by the rich glow of the walls, the mural of rolling Mediterranean hills, and the kebab-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.
