The Art of Aperitivo

Updated: Jul 4

Nothing says Italian culture more than Aperitivo hour – a celebration of the end of a long day, whilst whetting your appetite for your evening meal. We are excited to be launching our Aperitivo evenings on Fridays and Saturdays

Aperitivo is thought to have been created by the distiller Antonio Benedetto Carpano, who also created one of the first types of vermouth in Turin in 1786. He claimed that his special combination of fortified white wine and various herbs and spices stimulated the appetite and was more suitable for ladies to drink than red wine. It thus became one of the first popular aperitivo drinks.

Today, the simple drink has evolved and spread south to encompass those glorious couple of hours when people meet before dinner to relax over a glass of wine or a light cocktail and finger foods.

Our Cocktails

Our cocktail list includes spritzers and a selection of classics, all having taken on a Palazzo Parisio twist – our Negroni with sage-infused gin is particularly special, or if you’re looking for something a little sweeter, try our Bramble, adapted specially to the tastes of Baroness, Justine Pergola.
