Stuzzichini BOOK COVER

From the Tuscan countryside to Sicilian cafes, Italians enjoy their drinks with snacks called stuzzichini ("stoo-zih-ki-ni"). These small bites, skewers, dips, toasts, pastries and more are provided at no extra charge by the restaurant or bar and served alongside Negronis and Aperol Spritzes at aperitivo hour. Let this magical tradition of hospitality inspire your spread the next time you’re tempted to assemble a cheese board for a gathering or put out a bowl of chips for a snack.

Discover stuzzichini in all of its many mouth-watering iterations:

  • Crunchy bites from Sage & Brown Butter Popcorn to Farfalle Chips with Parmigiano Reggiano Cream
  • Finger foods like Classic Tuscan Crepes with Ricotta and Honey and Prosciutto Cups with Melon and Burrata Filling
  • Fried bites like Ascolana Style Fried Olives or Crab Fritters with Strega Citrus Vinaigrette
  • and a mix of classic and new aperitivo cocktails, from the classic Americano, to a Hibiscus Ginger Spritz and, of course, the mysterious Negroni Sbagliato

It's time to relax like an Italian. Stuzzichini is your guide to elevated snacking and recreating that sun-soaked piazza energy, chilled Spritz in hand!
