An authentic Italian enoteca, an aperitivo wine bar-bistro that stands out for its unique character was added in the map of the city’s centre. This addition is named Brunello and is located on the beautiful Loukianou street in Kolonaki.

Its elegant premises will remind you of Italian cities, while it’s few tables indoors and on the pavement in front will tempt you to take a seat any time of the day. Here, wine and food flirt with antipasti. The Italian cuisine dishes pair ideally with wine labels from all around Europe, with a distinct affection to the Italian vineyard, and Spyros Kerkyras’ aperitivo cocktails will tempt you to sample them. 

You should bear in mind that its wine list includes more than 80 labels, of which 40-45 are also served by the glass. Apart from extracts from the Italian and the European vineyards, Brunello showcases and promotes the labels of two Greek estates for a period of 2 months. Its current proposals come from the Pavlidis and Melas estates.

In regards to dining, chef Michael Nourloglou has supervised an Italian menu with obvious references to the cuisine of Tuscany. Each day here starts with panini (handmade bread), which you can prepare yourselves using the ingredients that will catch your eye from the list or choose one of the menu’s five suggestions. Your attention will definitely draw the selective deli sausages and cheese from all around Italy. Some of the menu’s highlights are the amazing beef carpaccio with pecan nuts, pecorino cheese, echalotes and watercress, the delectable celeriac risotto with Aegina peanuts and green apple and the exquisite cacio e pepe with fresh truffle, while the tiramisu offers the ideal conclusion to your meal.

To all of the above you can add its value for money philosophy, the informed and friendly personnel and the high quality of services and just arrange a visit here.
