The first Aperitivo of 2009 proved to be a fantastic night, with over 290 people attending the beautiful "Obika", the new Italian Bar and Restaurant near Trafalgar Square. Once again, we are sorry for the many Italians who came to the event but could not get in - as most of you know by now, our events are extremely popular and arriving early is recommended.
This Aperitif saw the official launch of "La Dolce Vita", the largest fair in UK of Italian fashion, food and property (26-29 March). Italians of London is official partner of Dolce Vita and we joined forces with the Dolce Vita team to present just a taste of what this Exhibition will offer to the visitors. Special guest of the night was the hugely acclaimed Francesco Mazzei, chef of "Anima", the Italian Restaurant in the City, which is receiving outstanding reviews from the press and the experts. Francesco will join famous chefs Theo Randall and Andy Needham (to name a few) at the "Dolce Vita", presenting some of their most mouth-watering creations.
Congratulations to Calogero, Francesca, Gianluca and Giorgio - they were the lucky winners of the amazing prizes of the night.
A huge thank you to Sara from Dolce Vita for her exquisite work and collaboration in preparing this event. A special thank you also to Stefano Potorti', general manager of Obika and to all the Staff of the venue.
Well...this aperitif was just a warm-up to welcome the New Year - get ready for the next events, starting with the Aperitif on the 5th of February, a very promising night you will not want to miss!
