The Xmas Aperitivo of 2008 was expected to be a brilliant event. And a fantastic night it was, with over 280 people (a new record!) attending the classy "Palmisanos", the new trendy Italian Bar and Restaurant just off Marylebone. We were sorry for the many Italians who came to the event but could not find space as the venue quickly reached full capacity.
It was a night to remember, with a great atmosphere and a chance for many to catch with friends and wish them Happy Holiday just before leaving for a well-deserved break
As always to our events, a large presence of foreign friends was welcome, with most coming from Europe but also from Japan, Thailand, USA, Argentina, South Africa, China, Mexico and even Australia!
Many thanks to all the staff of Palmisanos : from Cocktail expert Gennaro - who was at times overwhelmed by the sheer amount of orders at the bar, to Restaurant Manager Pierpaolo who had to cope with the enourmous number of hangry Italians and he managed to do so in a exquisite and professional manner.
We at Italians of London are already working on the next 5 Aperitivo in 2009, starting with a Super Classy one in January, to make sure you start the New Year with a bang!
