Italian ‘aperitivi’ in Madrid, Spain

The «aperitivo» is like a religion in the north of Italy. So, when I (Ana) was living in Milan and Bologna I used to go almost everyday to do it. Is an afterwork where you pay for the drink (always a little bit expensive in Italy) and then you can eat all you want from the buffet. Sometimes there is not a buffet but they give you some food… like «tapas» in Spain, more or less. But the normal thing is that you have a buffet with some pasta, rice salad, pizza… and more.

In Rome you can find it only in Some places. When Fulvio and I lived there we liked the «Monmart», and the «Oasi della birra». Two perfect places to have a good aperitivo in Rome with a lot of food.

But we were not expecting to find Italian aperitivos in Madrid. And not only find them, but realized that they can be even better here cause the drinks are cheaper and the food as good as in Italy.  So if you are in Madrid looking for a good afterwork with food and nice ambient, here you have some of our favorite places:

Aiò:

The owners are form Sardegna, this amazing island in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea. And they’ve managed to create this place with mediterranean soul in the middle of Malasaña. At the «aperitivo» time you can try their small pizza, pasta, salads and risotto. And at lunch or dinner they have tasteful and cheap Italian menus.
