If you're looking to extend those summer feels for as long as humanly possible, Italo-Australian cafe institution Brunetti is here to help. Every Friday through February and March, both its Flinders Lane and Carlton venues are continuing to channel those balmy European summer vibes, with a special aperitivo offering.

And this new Aperitivo Italiano menu is the stuff of after-work dreams, delivering a tasty selection of small bites and spritzes every Friday night until March 29.

Simply purchase a $20 aperitivo "bracelet" at the start of the night to score your first drink on the house, plus $10 drinks and complimentary cicchetti (Italian tapas-style snacks) all night. And the discounted drinks include 12, yes 12, spritzes as well as four Italian cocktails.

We're talking classic spritzes — featuring Aperol, limoncello, or maybe a combination of Italian bitter liqueur Marendry and black gum — as well as other aperitivo stars like the negroni, americano and bellini. You'll even spy the signature Brunetti spritz, blending the aforementioned Marendry with Amarena cherry syrup and prosecco.

The snacking game is equally strong, too. Those sips will be matched with bites like crostini, prosciutto-wrapped melon, arancini and stuffed and fried olives.

Brunetti's Aperitivo Italiano menu is available Friday nights from 6–9pm at 380 Lygon Street, Carlton, and 250 Flinders Lane, Melbourne.
