    We were led to L'Aperitivo by a force of nature and serendipity and - from our very first interaction with Nash and the team - to the post-event followup, we've been nothing but heartened, inspired, spoilt and loved.
    Planning a wedding isn't easy, but Nash and the L'Aperitivo took our somewhat complex needs, and turned them simple, all the while plying us with incredible cappuccinos and pure joy, in anticipation of our incredible day. Nash's ability to not just problem-solve on the spot, but think ahead and assess logistics, timing and oversee suppliers, deliveries, and all the little details that made our day great...is unheard of. Her rare skill to empathise, act, and get things done without impinging upon budget or time constraints is something utterly remarkable. For the L'Aperitivo team, nothing is impossible, and everything is for excellence.
    Thank you so much for making this celebration of our family union incredible, and so easy. You will remain in our hearts and sewn into our memories forever,
    Mr and Mrs C

    Thank you for an excellent evening of friendship that we shared at L’Aperitivo.
    The venue is fantastic. The table settings were most elegant. The ambiance of L’Aperitivo was warm and welcoming.
    The food was divine to say the least. One could tell the food was prepared with much love and passion.
    I really do appreciate the personal touch Cecilia. You certainly did cater for all tastes.
    A big thank you to the pleasant staff that was always helpful. The DJ did a fantastic job. Everything was well controlled.
    A job well done!!!! We couldn’t have asked for a better place to be.
    I will most certainly recommend L’Aperitivo with much confidence.

    Hosting a 120 guest Year End Function is never going to be easy however using L’Aperitivo as our venue and caterer was the best decision. We had a number of special requirements in relation to the venue, food and service and Nash & her team managed to deliver on all aspects. The food was excellent, the staff were friendly and attentive, everything ran smoothly from the first site visit to the menu tasting/selection and finally on the day. The venue is perfect if you’re after exclusivity and being able to spill out onto the Square is just what we needed to get everyone mingling. I highly recommend L’Aperitivo for all your function needs. – P van Wyk, Aspen Pharmacare Holdings Limited

    Dear Cecilia and Nash @ L'Aperitivo Venue,
    I would like to thank both of you and your team for outstanding service at our function last Saturday. From the beginning when I first booked to the very end of the function you both could not do enough to make sure everything went smoothly and made every effort to make sure it was a great success.
    The venue itself lends itself to any sort of function and is well positioned near gateway shopping centre.
    We will definitely be booking all our future functions there with you.
    Thank you once again,
    Vicki Preston-Whyte,

    CME Meeting
    This venue has the best ambiance and a touch of elegance. My clients being mostly doctors are placed in such high esteem when welcomed at a venue such as Laperitivo. The food was amazing, good variety and delicious. The staff are super efficient and I loved the owner's involvement in the coordinating of the function and preparing of the meals. Lovely soft entertainment in the background just set a different milieu to CME meetings. These guys have passion for what they do!!!

    Re: Ashna's 21st Birthday

    We were planning our daughters 21st surprise Birthday on the 16 August 2015. We looked around many venues and popped into L'Apertivo Venue,from the time we entered and chatted with Cecelia and Nash we were certain the venue was our choice.
    The beautiful Italian city paintings on the wall just added to the ambiance of the venue.
    We made many telephonic calls to Satish. Satish being a cardiologist always accommodated us in his busy schedule and advised accordingly especially being strict vegetarian.
    Our heart felt gratitude to Cecelia and Nash for their unconditional advice on the menu and assisting us in every direction so the surprise will work out well. They accommodated us with even bringing egg-less deserts and pastries so our function was complete.
    The food was prepared the true Italian style
    Authentic Italian food: fresh mediterranean ingredients (for example: fresh tomatoes, fresh courgettes, fresh artichokes), traditional way to cook (grandmother-style). This recalled memories of our recent visit to Venice. The food Quality In Italy is more of an art than a money maker. Everything is more fresh, more expensive, longer preparation time, better atmosphere, and more natural.
    There are not many nations that can say their national dish has become an international phenomenon. Italy has two such dishes, pasta and, of course, pizza. Both are famous all over the world, both have made the history of Italian food. With great pride and joy I say "L'Apertivo" has definitely match the standard.
    My advice if you have not visited L'Apertivo consider the advice of someone who has. however, we suggest stepping out of your culinary comfort zone to try all L'Apertivo has to offer. You can rest assured that you will find pasta, wine, espresso, and gelato.
    If you don't know what to order your best bet is to order what the guy next to you is having –
    “prendo quello che ha preso lui"
    Thank you to the entire team of L'Apertivo our daughters dream would not have been possible without you all.
