Prendiamo un aperitivo?

The aperitivo is popular in Italy. Whilst it most commonly takes place after 6pm (particularly in summer), there can be some form of it earlier in the afternoon, or late in the evening. 

Not to be confused with Australia's 'happy hour', the aperitivo does just that - it opens the palate whilst giving friends (old and new) a chance to socialise with a 
drink and a nibble before dinner. Of course pending on the amount of nibbles consume, dinner could potentially be ignored altogether ;).

Whilst we now boast a full alcoholic menu which can be consumed at any time of the day (and any day of the week), we also offer some (more popular) aperitivo's which 
can be enjoyed late afternoon (and into the evenings). Couple it with our salumi board or a plate of pasta and ease yourself into the weekend.

See you soon :) x


ML 'nutella'

Hello lovelies,

Like every other Italian we indulged in Nutella as we were growing up… and beyond that if the truth be known. Nutty, chocolatey, gooey - delicious! In fact we only moved away from the stuff found on supermarket shelves a few years ago. Why? Well not only did we want to be sure we knew what we were putting in our bodies, but we also wanted to take a stand against large corporations contributing to the palm oil industry.

We’ve had a lot of positive feedback about our homemade ‘Nutella’ and many of you have asked whether we will be making it available to purchase (to take home) so we have listened to your requests and hope that you are happy to hear that we will be making this available by the end of the week. 

Just keep your eyes peeled to our Instagram and Facebook profiles for our announcement. 

See you soon,

Mio Locale x
