Start your night like the Italians by having aperitif time at Enoteca Bar Elisa. It’s considered as one of the best places to have aperitivo, or aperitif time. Aperitivo is an evening time that usually starts around 5 in the evening, when the Italians go out to the bars to have some alcoholic drinks that come with some snacks.

Enjoy aperitivo with the local wine. They serve condiments of cold meat cuts and delicious cheese. There are many types of local wines at the bar, but they don’t always display them all. So make sure that you ask.

6. Eat like locals at Ristorante Nunzia

The best place to eat like locals and meet the locals. At Ristorante Nunzia, start with prosciutto with mozzarellas as your antipasti, or starter. The best mozzarella is in Italy and you know it’s true when it melts in your mouth. And with fresh pasta with tomato and basil for your primo, or first main course, you will be contented.

You can always order the second main course, or secondo, which is usually a meat dish. But save some space for the fantastic Coffee Creme Brûlée or the nougat ice cream with home made chocolate sauce for your dessert. I know, the desserts don’t sound like local desserts, but you won’t regret it!

Famous for its coffee culture, head out to Bar 7000 Cafe for a cup of espresso after you finish your delicious dinner. I would suggest you take your time when you enjoy your coffee. You don’t need to follow how the Italians drink their coffee. They like having coffee quickly and going somewhere else straight away. Make you own pace!
