Il Maremmano


An apericena bar in Brixton serving regional specialities from the Maremma - the wild coastal region in southern Tuscany known for its wild boar, seafood and vineyards.

Apericena is a new take on aperitivo in Italy. Formed by adding the word cena, meaning dinner, onto aperitivo, dishes are more substantial than aperitivo, but more casual than dinner and are enjoyed with a cocktail or glass of Tuscan wine from a hand-picked, independent producer in the Maremma.

The bar is part of the Maremma group, with Maremma restaurant just around the corner, and is perfect for a pre-dinner aperitivo, post-dinner digestivo or the whole apericena shebang for anyone looking for a more casual evening out. Guests can enjoy small plates such as crostoni (large crostini), pizzette, boards of Maremman formaggi and salumi and other Tuscan specialities with a cocktail in hand.

Located on Tulse Hill, just a short walk from the hubub of central Brixton, the bar's interior is reminiscent of a traditional Italian bar but with a Brixton twist. The terracotta and sage walls and blue bar front draw on the rich, terracotta soil, central to winemaking in the area since the Etruscans, as well as the azure blue Tyrrhenian sea and sage green olive groves that permeate the landscape. The local gig posters are Dickie the owner's personal collection, having lived in the area for 50 years.
