In order to do dinner right, one must first sup on some sweet refreshments beforehand. Whether this is a Limoncello spritz, brandy or a crisp glass of white, we're loving this Italian philosophy. Aperitivo loves it so much they've named their restaurant after it!

Hit pause and enjoy life in the slow lane at Aperitivo. Here to celebrate all the good things, with plenty of time to savour every sensory pleasure, this eatery encourages you to give in to the sheer joy that is so intrinsic to Italian cuisine. Inside it takes on the form of a bustling Italian bistro, seating eager diners in close proximity to each other and the bar. The result? A lively mixture of conversation and music that spills out onto the street outside, enticing onlookers inside for a slice (pun intended) of the action. Everyone is warmly invited to treat Aperitivo like home.

The best thing about not being in a rush is that you can indulge in multiple courses. Begin low and slow with some deep-fried mozzarella balls, crispy arancini, bruschetta topped with juicy tomatoes and basil, or stuffed zucchini flowers. Next, employ your fork to swirl delightful nests of seafood linguine or veal ragu spaghetti. Alternatively, you can always go cutlery-free with any of their classic tomato or white base pizzas.

As for those who like something different upon each visit, Aperitivo's fish and meat of the day are always fresh and local, meaning unbeatable taste. Finally, who's stopping you from having an after-supper sip too? With a wealth of cocktails, spirits, wines and beers on offer, enjoy a whimsical evening the Italian way. It's the only way Aperitivo knows how!
