AperitivoFree: All time

Back in the days, “aperitivo” meant small appetizers (olive, nuts, chips) served during pre-dinner drink but today it has become a full-fledge complimentary buffet meal. Basically, for a price of a drink, you’ll get to eat free of charge. Although not all bars offer this, the practice has become more and more common in most cities in Italy. It is especially popular among students. So the next time you find yourself in Rome, ask a local to recommend some “aperitifs” bars, go visit them and enjoy a drink, a meal, and a perhaps a conversation with Italian youngsters.
