If you're not a fan of rowdy pubs but don't mind a quiet after work drink (or two), Aperitivo hour at Molto Italian might just be for you.
I was invited to try Aperitivo hour and decided to check it out with a friend on a Thursday evening. With every alcoholic beverage ordered, you can enjoy complimentary Italian inspired snacks.
My friend ordered a Negroni ($18*) and I ordered a Bellini ($17*). Our snacks were four arancini balls and mixed olives. This whet our appetites and we decided to stay for dinner.
The buffalo mozzarella ($16) was divine and came out with gnocco fritto, which were light, crisp pillows of pizza dough. We also got the stuffed zucchini flowers ($20) and the quattro formaggi (four cheese) pizza, which had all the right flavours. My favourite by far though was the buffalo mozzarella and would come back for this dish in a heartbeat.
Molto Italian at the Kingston Foreshore is doing Aperitivo hour every Thursday through Saturday until 14 April.
*The alcoholic drinks, arancini balls and olives were complimentary. We paid for the buffalo mozzarella, zucchini flowers, and four cheese pizza.
