Aperitivo Hour

Your weeknight happy hour just got a bit of Italian flair! Complimentary small plates with Prosecco cocktails, delicious wines, craft beers and good times – it’s Aperitivo Hour!

The Concept – What is Aperitivo?

A staple of life and culture throughout Italy – and nowhere more so than in Milan – the Aperitivo capital of the world!

Bars and restaurants offer a pre-dinner drink (or two) with an accompanying and complimentary finger-food buffet to their patrons. Bruschetta, olives, nuts and other delights are shared in a friendly atmosphere ahead of an evening meal. It’s a time to catch up with friends and family – and perfect for impressing whilst keeping it casual as a first date venue!


Milan Expo 2015 – from the 1st of May to 31st October

I love to support our Italian heritage and share with you the amazing things happening in Italy so you can experience our beautiful country, or just know a little more about it!


It is no secret by now, I have a passion for good food, from our pizzas to salads, and this passion is just as strong in my motherland Milan, so strong that this year, it was chosen as the host to the biggest Universal Exhibition in the world EXPO, which in 2015 sees as protagonist our favourite subject “food” and the human impact on the planet related to it.


Fancy one of Grandma’s Sandwiches?

In August we have Leeds Fest coming to the area, for everyone to enjoy a full weekend of drinking, socialising and of course… Music.

But if Italy is where you like to enjoy some musical vibes, we recommend “Hydrogen Festival” set in the picturesque city or Padova, showcasing an amazing line up but our true favourite of all times, would be the old “Pistoia Blues” which year after year since the 80’s, never fails to impress, organized within the streets of Pistoia, Tuscany, it is a unique festival that has seen some of the best in the music scene throughout the years.


Where in Italy?

We all know the feeling of our friends coming home from holiday and boasting about the amazing sights they saw and experiences they had. Usually, when someone visits a country you can guess which city or area they stayed in, Italy is much less predictable. In fact, it will probably leave you pretty confused and overwhelmed – how can a country have that many incredible cities?


Dreaming of an Italian summer…

With summer just around the corner, I’m sure you’re  the same as me, dreaming of those warm weekends basking in the sun, sipping on a refreshing cocktail whilst snacking on a board of artisan Italian cheeses, cured meats or a fresh Italian mozzarella salad. Whether you’re looking to relive a summer in my homeland of Italy, or simply just want to enjoy the Leeds summer with your favourite cuisine, LIVIN’italy is here for you on the Leeds waterfront.


The perfect pairing…

If you’re heading out for an Italian meal, you could be forgiven for placing your primary focus on the food. In our culture however, it’s just as important to get your drink right to accompany your meal – it’s a full package, and at LIVIN’Italy, we appreciate that it’s all part of the overall dining experience.


‘Yours to take away…’

Cooking is our passion, and we love nothing more than wowing our diners with everyday Italian classics, prepared in the most authentic and tastiest ways. We realise that you can’t eat out at a restaurant every night, so even though we might not be able to enjoy your company tonight, that doesn’t mean you have to settle for subpar food at home…
