The Italian Restaurant Aberdeen

Enjoy delicious food for a great price

Following the announcement by the Scottish Government, we’ve shut our doors temporarily.

Although, it has been a challenging few weeks, I would like to say a huge thank you to the staff for adapting to the new ways of working, and to our customers for supporting and also following the guidelines we put in place.

If you have any enquiries regarding your booking, please do not hesitate to contact us and we can reschedule for a later date.
For now, stay safe and see you again when our doors can re-open.
Many thanks!!😊❤️🇮🇹.

See You Soon Michael

Aperitivo is a family-run business providing you with a new way of eating in a surrounding of relaxing, 1940’s-inspired décor.

L’aperitivo, as it’s known in Italy, originated in Milan and has spread throughout the whole country, quickly becoming a much-loved part of Italian culture. And now it has arrived to Aberdeen!

Traditionally, l’aperitivo was an opportunity to catch up with friends, unwind after a long day and indulge one’s appetite with an aperitif : a glass of wine or a beer, while snacking on some home-made local dishes. Aperitivo has taken those principles and provided a new way of eating. We introduced a Sicilian twist to the Scottish tradition, with our menu offering a wide selection of freshly prepared dishes, in order to give you a taste of southern Italy while using the best local produce.

We create dining to suit your appetite – enjoy a dish or two for lunch, have a quick snack, or create your own mezze-style meal to complement a bottle of wine. You choose!

— Gastronomy —

Fresh daily special dishes to compliment our already extensive menu selection.

— Family Business —

Aperitivo is Rusticos younger member of family.

— Wine Tasting  —

Its a vital part of our business to regularly taste new wines with our customers .

— Dining Al Fresco —

We provide a large fully licensed outdoor seating area weather permitted
