Balla Aperitivi Bar

Meander through the Tuscan vineyards before a taste of Veneto and Sicily.

It is an aperitivi bar, so mix and match your wines with some antipasti, ostriche or oysters shucked to order, primi and pasta dishes. Aperitivi is spilling over with exclusive Italian drops, and a breathtaking view of the harbour.

Watch the Italian aperitivi cocktails come alive. Check out our menu for snacks, street food and cocktails below.
