Why I Love Aperitivo

Restaurant Name: Aperitivo
Location: Brooklyn, NY

Aperitivo is one of many Italian restaurants in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Its menu, with one or two exceptions, is nothing out of the ordinary. It is not gourmet. It is not particularly romantic. It is not edgy, or hip.

So why do I love Aperitivo?

It is cozy and it is consistent. It is excellent prices (between $10-12 per entree). It is hot, satisfying pasta on a cold night. Or it is a cold, fizzy drink at an outdoor table in the summer. It is oozy lasagna. It is shrimps nuzzled against creamy, salty white beans. It is creamy goat cheese sauce enrobed gnocchi with arugula. It is the waiters remembering your name. In short, I love Aperitivo because it is the perfect neighborhood restaurant.

And, for nights when its just too cold and you are just too lazy, they deliver.

Try it and see if you love it too.

Amazing place. I loved it. The Happy Hour deal was excellent its half price on Appetizers and 2$ off any drink or glass of wine you order. Happy hour is from Monday to Friday from 4pm to 7pm! Every single person finds his little thing he loves in Aperitivo! I found the service and the food so wonderful what made me come back every week ever since!
