Aperitivo hour at Ombra Restaurant
Warm up before dinner with a quick drink and small plate at Ombra Restaurant on Cuba Street in Te Aro. Inspired by the bacari (typical bar and restaurant of Venice), the interior of this stylish restaurant combines rustic and industrial design and serves budget-friendly Italian drinks such as Prosecco, Aperol Spritz, and Peroni with a complimentary bite between 3pm and 6pm. All plates are designed to share, so if you are planning to make a meal of it, order three to four dishes for two people. Start with a classic Venetian starter of baccalà mantecato crostino (whipped salted cod on toasted bread) and a crispy, creamy mushroom and mozzarella arancino (risotto ball) topped with truffle honey.
