    The service is excellent, very obliging and friendly. I like their porchetta panini which had all the right elements - crispy skin, tender meat and fresh salad. Delicious.

    This restaurant was a great find. Walking distance from Pidapipo, you won’t miss it! At first it looked really quiet from the outside compared to other restaurants (where there’s a long long line outside). But once you walk in, the staff are so welcoming and the interior is warm, modern & cozy, you get excited that you can have a relaxed meal. Staff was attentive, cocktails were great and the serving sizes & price points were amazing. For small groups of people that like to have a variety of dishes, I think it’s a great place to enjoy with drinks.

    Food was amazing. Full of flavour and it was so satisfying to eat! My fiancée was just as amazed with the flavours. The servings were deceiving small but you’d be surprised how filling they can be. The service was great,Staff were polite and attentive. Will make the effort to go back again to try their other dishes. Appertivo board,Porchetta,Arancini,Meatballs and Halloumi were all winners!

    My partner and I visited for dinner recently and the food is absolutely divine! Not a single fault with our entire experience. We ordered 8 tapas that were a great variety and all generously sized (more than enough left over for lunch the next day!), and just so delicious. We also ordered 2 desserts which were both delightful. The service is attentive and fast, especially Lenny! We are already planning to be back very soon.

    This little restaurant was a great find! The staff was super friendly, welcoming and attentive. We ordered the aperitivo board to start alongside 5 other dishes from their menu. The food was delicious and portions are very generous - price reasonable too! The dishes were presented well and the candle on the tables gave a really romantic atmosphere ????. Will definitely go back again!

    My partner and I celebrated a friends birthday at Aperitivo Bar Ristorante recently. The food was very tasty and the portion size per serving was very generous. We tried almost everything on the menu and where super happy with the selection. Highly recommend you check them out!

    Love the food it’s so fresh with beautiful simple flavours! They should offer main dishes since it’s so good rather than just share plates.

    I honestly cannot fault this lovely little restaurant. The service was wonderful, all of the dishes we ordered were delicious and exceeded expectations, the wine list was great and both the Prosecco and Rose we ordered were lovely. The small touches like the scented candle on our table really added to the atmosphere as well. We’re already planning another visit and have recommended eating here to family and friends.

    Each dish we ordered was really good! Thoroughly enjoyed it! The serving size seemed to be quite small but we were both really full after and my boyfriend is a big eater. Value for money too.

    We came here on a deal- had a significant discount and made the food embarrassingly cheap.. it’s great to try the tapas concept in Carlton instead of the usual pasta and pizza. We ordered Arancini, meatballs, calamari salad, gnocchi and pork belly. Everything was delicious- fresh and perfectly cooked. Service was attentive and fast.
