You don’t want to miss Bivacco’s Galliano Garden Party, serving the best Italian aperitivo

It is no secret that Italy is famed for its unwavering commitment to enjoying good food and company. As such, the latest collaboration by Savor Group and Galliano proves that the tradition of savouring the moment with friends and loved ones is alive and well in Auckland’s premier Italian establishments: Bivacco, Non Solo Pizza and Bar Non Solo.

As the workday draws to a close, it is the Italian nature to gather and enjoy a leisurely aperitivo, a tradition that has long been honoured with special menus and drinks options at these Auckland venues. But the latest take is a series of bespoke offerings that are sure to delight even the most discerning of diners.

For those looking to truly indulge, Bivacco has something extra special in store. On Friday the 31st of March, the Viaduct Harbour restaurant will be hosting a four-course tasting menu designed by Head Chef Ryan Moore, with each course perfectly paired with a delicious Galliano Cocktail. On the menu, alongside some of our perennial favourites will be a raft of new dishes too, such as Kingfish Crudo, with cucumber, green chilli and roasted garlic dressing, and Seared Big Eye Tuna, with wood-fired eggplant, green gazpacho, chilli oil and basil. The whole experience will round up with an Amalfi Lemon Tart, to truly end the meal on a high note.

Throughout the week, Bivacco is the ideal spot to indulge in an aperitivo, with its stunning waterfront vista and delicious cocktails. The Vanilla Mule, Galliano’s take on the original Moscow Mule, is a particular favourite, with its sweet and fresh taste profile. It’s the perfect refreshing cocktail to enjoy during Aperitivo Hour, which runs every weekday from 4pm.

Elsewhere, Non Solo Pizza and Bar Non Solo are also getting in on the aperitivo action, offering tantalising seasonally-inspired Galliano cocktails from the 20th of March until the 20th of April — offering us the perfect opportunity to celebrate the convivial Italian spirit.

Here for a good time, not a long one, the Bivacco Galliano Garden Party should be seen as an opportunity to indulge in some seriously delicious food and drinks and create unforgettable memories with friends and loved ones in the process. Tickets for Savor Group and Galliano’s multi-faceted dining experience are $135 each and are available here.
