The aperitivo, or prelunch or predinner drink, is available everywhere in Italy, but it is a big part of Milanese life and a must-try. Milan bar owners have enriched the usual nibbles of olives, nuts, and chips with full finger (and often fork) buffets serving cubes of pizza and cheese, fried vegetables, rice salad, sushi, and even pasta, and they’ve baptized it "Appy Hour" (with the first "h" dropped and the second one pronounced). For the price of a drink (around €8), you can make a meal of hors d'oeuvres—but don't be greedy.
