Love Aperitivo! We go for date night and for family dinners. Not cheap, but love the ambiance and the ever changing menu of creative selections. Erika always makes great wine recommendations. Highly recommend!

This is our go-to date spot because the food is delicious and the service is consistent. Cocktails are always well made. I would like to see more wines by the glass so different types could be tried.
