I Banchi is also – and above all – a bar for aperitivo. Original concoctions based on exclusive recipes:
“The selection of aperitifs – underlines Peppe Cannistrà – is one of the surprises of this place, where you can eat well, drink, converse from morning until night without having to change locations; move upstairs or downstairs, through this room or that room, inside or outside. My favorite aperitif is the Barnum, to ease yourself in to lunch or dinner.
