It’s a really nice Italian tradition to havae pre dinner snacks and drinks. I think it’s the laid back attitude of people to relax after a tough day unwind before enjoying dinner. I was walking aimlessly past Piazza Castello and on PO Street when i passed a few shops with people were sitting chilling with a drink and what appears to be like a sandwich tray in front of them. Some shops had more elaborate displays and some looked simpler so i plopped myself down and asked for an aperitivo.
The waiter very kind and friendly suggested a local vermouth which was delicious. It was citrusy and had a nice aniseedy refreshing flavor, it wasn’t too heavy and it wasn’t sweet it was just right. The mini bites was just the right mouthful with a variety of simple toppings, tomatoes, roasted veggies, hams, porchetta and roasted onion. I think it was around 7 or 10 euros for the drink and mini bites. It’s really good, the slow life in Italy.
