The first rays of summer are here, so head to the Square and grab a seat at one of our gorgeous alfresco restaurants. No more winter blues or April showers, let’s hope the sun is here to stay!
Manicomio is a must for a spot of alfresco drinking and dining. The 60 seater terrace overlooks the Square and is a great venue for a catch-up with friends on a relaxing afternoon. Manicomio Poco, it’s café next door, also has a beautiful courtyard at the back should you prefer a little more privacy. Don’t miss out on happy hour, from 4-6pm and enjoy 2-4-1 on fantastic cocktails. Negronis and Bellinis are the order of the day!
Soak up the sunshine at Comptoir Libanais whose terrace faces the piazza and has the sun all day long. Enjoy the delicious flavours of their Middle Eastern dishes whilst sipping on an iced tea.
Polpo, also overlooking the piazza, but with the option of some shade, is definitely one not to miss. Their beautiful terrace is reminiscent of the huge squares of La Serenissima and should you lose the sun for a second, the wonderful Polpo team will be on hand with blankets to keep you warm. The venetian sharing plates are perfect light bites; delicious cicheti or pizzete and are great accompaniments to an Aperol Spritz.
On days like these, Gallery Mess fling open their doors which overlook the beautiful green of the Square the running track. Grab a spot and enjoy the sunshine; made even better with one of their delicious afternoon teas. Enjoy sandwiches, scones and the tastiest of cakes as you celebrate the start of summer!
