The light and bright cafe is housed in a charming weatherboard house a stone's throw from Currumbin Creek, on the popular foodie corner that also hosts neighbours, Tarte Beach House, Little Tommys and popular Throwers Fish & Chips.

With shaded curb-side seating under sunny-coloured umbrellas and easy parking on the street or out the back, Aperitivo is a popular early morning stop-off for those seeking a killer cup of coffee, thanks to premium beans and smooth medium roast of Melbourne-based roasters, Niccolo.

Along with home-baked breakie favourites like Portuguese tarts, flaky croissants and raspberry Danishes, Aperitivo specialises in the perfect Italian lunch combo—fresh panani and ice-cold Peroni. Panini, plural for panino, is an Italian sandwich made specifically with Italian breads, including ciabatta or focaccia, and Aperitivo serves up six of the best—the Caprese, the Verdure (below), the Cotto, the Proscuitto, the La Puccia and the Meatball Sub.

Definitely a locals’ favourite, the Meatball Sub, is served on an olive oil bun, with house-made Italian style meatballs, slow cooked Napoli sauce and dusting of pecorino.

Aperitivo's delightful menu also offers a selection of Italian specialties humorously titled "Not Panino", including their homemade Truffle Arancini, celebrating this Sicilian delight which literally translates to “little oranges”.
