Figo in Elwood has opened a cheerful cantina and The World Loves Melbourne (Paul) was invited along. The event signalled a celebration of the end of summer and what better way to celebrate than Italian cantina treats along with Aperol Spritz.

We perused the beverages menu but for me a beer is a great match with pizza, especially an Italian beer with Italian style pizza.
