Head north from the city towards Thornbury and, burrowed along High Street, you'll find Joanie's Baretto, an Italian wine bar and restaurant. Start with an Aperol or Campari spritz and then dive right into the Italian-style snacks. We recommend the veal and pork meatballs cooked in a Napoli sauce, perhaps followed by its rich veal ragu or broccoli orecchiette. Gluten-free pasta is available, too.

On the first Sunday of each month, the bar does aperitivo afternoon where, for $20, you'll get a drink and a selection of cicchetti. Grab a seat at the bar, a table under the softly-lit yellow lights or in the spacious back courtyard. This place delivers on its food and drink and is all about having a good time in a relaxed atmosphere. Perfect for weekend drinks.
