    I normally don't write a review on the Fork for restaurants. But i have to leave a good review for this place as the food was delicious! The place is mew and modern, and the service is warm and friendly. They deserve recognition and i'll definitely recommend it to others. They serve the best haloumi cheese i've ever had!

    Absolutely LOVED this little place. Waiter was so polite and welcoming. Thankyou! Will definitely be back. Generous portions at reasonable prices. Not over crowded or loud. I'd say your missing out if you haven't walked in here. Worth a try 100% The final affogato finished the dinner perfectly. Very happy ????????

    This is a great spot for Friday night tapas and drinks. We took advantage of the Fork's 50% off which made the food ridiculously cheap. Tapas at $4-9 each at full price were very good value. The wine selection, while small, was very good. The waiter was attentive, polite and friendly and obviously enjoyed his job.

    Wonderful experience tonight at Aperitivo. The whole team were so friendly, welcoming and experienced. The chef created some wonderful authentic dishes that we really enjoyed. He really put care and efforts into each dish and the flavours were spot on. We tried most dishes on the menu and the highlight were the gnocchi with field mushrooms + the meatballs dish + and the chorizo with vegetables dishes. Finished it off with the lovely affogato. Highly recommend to everyone out there who’s looking for nice meal in lygon street. We’ll definitely be back for sure . Thank you Aperitivo !

    Honestly dont know what all the fuss is about! The food was ok and our waitress couldn't get is out the door quick enough which i thought was a touch rude being that it was still 1 hour from close. Won't be back any time soon.

    The staff were friendly and the food was lovely. Great share plates and the cocktails were some of the best I’ve had especially the espresso martini. Would definitely go back.

    Delicious gnocchi and metaballs. Other dishes like Calamari Salad and Haloumi are also good. Pork belly was a little dry. Overall food was tasteful and with The Fork 50% discount, was great value.

    I always have a great time at Aperitivo. The Italian tasting plates are the perfect way to end the working week with friends and a few proseccos! The meatballs and the pea & mint arancini are delicious.
