For those of you who thought that Aperitif was a tradition from North Italy only, this was the chance to discover and entire new world : welcome to the first AperiPizza, an evening where the guests of honour are Pizza and Arancini, examples of exquisite food from Sicily, right in the heart of London.
Over 200 people attended this super-informal event at the wonderful Pizza Rico, the new Sicilian center of excellence, just a stone throw from Leicester Square and Covent Garden.
The sheer abundance of food and the very warm settings (including a generous hot evening, courtesy of London unpredictable weather!) made this a very enjoyable event, which has already scored high in the preferences of the Italians of London.
As always to our events, we had also many foreign friends attending - they obviosly didn't want to miss another legendary Italians of London Aperitif! We had people from Germany, Sant Lucia, Mexico, Venezuela, France, South Africa, Brasil, Croatia and many other countries.
A huge thank you to Roy from Pizza Rico for his generous assistance and collaboration in preparing this event. And a super thank you to Carlo for the overall organisation of the event.
Finally, a Bravo to all the staff of Pizza Rico - their dedication and kindness in assisting the guests were a true asset to the huge success of the AperiPizza.
To watch all the photos from the night (just about 100!), click on the "Galleria Fotografica" link, just left to the title of this page. The photos will be shown on a slideshow, so we recommend to switch the lights off and...enjoy the show!
And remember : if you wish to receive (free - of course!) the original photos in High Resolution (over 4MP) to share them with your friends, fiancee, mums or even with your...dog, send us an email to THIS ADDRESS and we will be more than happy to assist you.
We are already working on the next Aperitif - this time in a brand new Italian venue near Fulham...
Al prossimo Aperitivo!
