I've attended a couple of wine dinners at Piattini, which you can read about here and here, and they are always amazing. You can also read my interview and food review with Owner/Menu Director Josephine Oliviero Megwa, here.
It promises to be another intimate evening with spectacular Italian eats and guided (but not stuffy) wine tasting and pairing.

Piattini is an upscale restaurant and wine bar specializing in regional Italian cuisine and exceptional wine located on Newbury St. in Boston, Massachusetts’s fashionable Back Bay neighborhood. Opened in 2001, Piattini means “small plate” in Italian, thus the emphasis on shared tapas style offerings where guests can sample a variety of different hot and cold plates, or select from Piattini’s always changing lunch and dinner menus which include traditional sized dishes.
Similar to the owner’s ancestors in Italy, Piattini is committed to using the finest ingredients with a menu that combines the authentic flavors of yesterday, while adding the creativity and diversity of today. Known for their robust educational wine program, the experience of choosing from the vast selection of exceptional wines is enhanced as each glass is accompanied by a small card detailing the region, tasting notes, and other pertinent information.
The intimate dining room and secluded outdoor patio provide the perfect atmosphere for after work gatherings, drinks at the bar, wine tastings and private functions alike.
Piattini is located at 226 Newbury Street Boston, MA, 02116.
