Aperitivo Danzante 
Two Italian Boys, Brunetti and That’s Amore Cheese have come together in a sensational partnership to create a series of events with the aim of bringing people together from all walks of life to experience the real Italian dream.

 'Aperitivo Danzante' Act II, will take place at the iconic Brunetti in Carlton on Thursday December 4th, 2014 with Italian food, drinks and dancing. Aperitivo, the rich uncle of happy hour, is the tradition of pre-dinner drinks accompanied by appetizers. Danzante means 'to dance'. Together, the Two Italian Boys, Brunetti and That’s Amore Cheese are changing the game with their summer
event series 'Aperitivo Danzante'.
It wouldn't be a party without 'la musica' so each event will feature some of Melbourne's best DJs and live musicians to keep guests grooving through the night. Two Italian Boys will also be showcasing their latest addition to the family, a 2013 vintage Prosecco DOC, produced in Valdobbiadene, Treviso- Italy’s best Prosecco making region. After four years of producing Italian specific wine styles in the Riverina NSW, they have made a single exception for the new Prosecco. It is, of course, a highlight amongst the ten other beautiful wines produced by the company and is the only Dry Sparkling in the range. A perfect aperitif to stimulate the appetite and tease the taste buds, the 2013 vintage Prosecco complements the new and exciting Brunetti menu.
Michele Circhirillo and Alessandro Violi, Executive Chef at Brunetti, have designed a marvellous array of pasta dishes, delicious wood-fire pizza and beautifully prepared tasting plates or stuzzichini, immersing you in the most colourful, culinary world that is the food of Italy. While Australia's best maker of Italian cheeses, the 'Maestro of Mozzarella', Giorgio Linguanti (That's Amore Cheese) will also be showcasing his artisan skills by making traditional style cheeses live for the guests to admire and enjoy.
Following the introduction of specially developed alcohol infused aperitif gelato during the recently held Aperitivo Danzante Act I, Brunetti will introduce an additional 3 new aperitif flavours by Chef Gelatiere Alessio Tavella, that are set to steal the spotlight once again.
The next events will take place on December 4th at Brunetti Carlton followed by a beach themed event on January 23rd at Brunetti City Square.
