Finally Aperitivo in Mayfair

Acclaimed Italian restaurant Banca is bringing the convivial Milanese dining tradition to their prestigious Mayfair locale, with the launch of Aperitivo, from November 2012. Aperitivo is a ritual deeply rooted in the Italian dining culture. A relaxing preamble to dinner, guests enjoy an early evening drink served with a complimentary range of freshly prepared snacks at the bar in buzzing and sociable environs.

From 5pm - 7:30pm on Tuesday to Friday, classic Italian aperitivo will be laid across Banca’s impressive long bar that spans across the entire length of the restaurant. Guests can enjoy one of Banca’s expertly crafted Italian cocktails, such as the Negroni, Aperol Spritz or Bellini, as they graze.

The Aperitivo menu stays true to Banca’s ethos of fresh, seasonal and authentic dishes, designed by Executive Chef Marzio Zacchi and Head Chef Gabriele Milani. All dishes are bite-sized, designed to be easily consumed in the early evening, standing and socialising at the bar.
