"aperitivo" is a local tradition... it's a glass or two of wine - drunk either before lunch, or before dinner. The best places are those which give you filling freebies on the side: crisps, olives.. and maybe some bread and ham - or small pizzas
Favorite Dish: We were gives crisps AND olives AND bread topped with some yummy sauce and ham. Really great. The price was 3 euros for a glass of wine.
