Our experience was outstanding from the starters to the finish (desert is a must here). The fish tacos and the salad rolls were amazing. More importantly, our waiter knew the menu and was able to recommend the order in which we had our tapas. Fabulous lunch place!

My husband and I like to try new restaurants so went to Aperitivo. We first went with our neighbours and loved it so much, we went back the following week. We have tried (in our 6-7 visits) almost everything on the menu. While I have a favourite menu item we were not disappointed with anything that was served. The quality... More

My husband and I decided to try Aperitivo after reading a few good reviews on different websites. Everything about this place is fantastic (except for the location maybe, which is a bit far from our place!). We had a late reservation, but arrived a bit early. Our table was not ready, but we were offered 2 seats at the bar,... More

I recently had lunch at Aperitivo with a girlfriend and we both enjoyed sharing plates of tuna tartare, shrimp and fish tacos. I loved every bite, we could have easily enjoyed another plate - but didn't have the time. The waiter was very customer service oriented, friendly and explained the dishes upon arrival. I would definitely come back and enjoy... More

We've now been to Aperitivo three times (most recently for the September chef's tasting menu) and every single time we have had a reservation and have still had to wait 10-15 minutes for our table. That being said, the food is excellent. We have ordered a wide variety of menu items (lettuce wraps, calamari, fish tacos, tostadas, cheese plate) and... More

My girlfriend found this restaurant while looking for a place that offered gluten free options for me. We found so much more. Fabulous food and wonderful service every time. My husband and I been back four times so far. The last two times we've brought friends with us as we want to share this little gem. My parents who are... More

I went to Apperitivo with my girlfriend for no other reason then I hadn't taken her to a nice restaurant for a while. The experience turned out to be one of our most fun evening for a long while. The staff are extremely friendly yet professional. We were attended to quickly and our drink orders were taken (custom drinks were... More

My wife and I went to Aperitivo for the first time to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The waiter was excellent and suggested how many dishes to order (3). We had the lamb, fish tacos, and beef tostatas. The food was excellent! We will definitely be back!
