This latest opening is bringing a dose of the Italian Riviera to Liverpool.
Rooftop bars and restaurants by the docks may be getting booked up in the blink of an eye, but you needn’t have to head to the city centre for a meal and stunning views. Instead, why not head south of Liverpool where you can enjoy a beautiful riverscape?
Alfresco on the Prom is based right on Otterspool Promenade making it the perfect destination for outdoor dining. The Aigburth restaurant is serving up a delicious Italian menu including authentic pizza and pasta dishes, as well as wonderful views of the River Mersey.
The new alfresco dining experience is is part of the Otterspool Adventure play centre and it boasts a rather sophisticated evening menu featuring light bites including olives, focaccia and antipasto charcuterie platter. Alfresco on the Prom even offers four different types of bruschetta- from rather classic toppings like tomato, basil, red onion and mozzarella to more adventurous ones such as roasted fig, gorgonzola, prosciutto and rocket.
The menu also features a range of pizza and pasta dishes as well as salads and an antipasti board brimming with the likes of olives, artichokes, prosciutto focaccia, peppers, mozzarella and anchovies. Alfresco on the Prom is bringing a dose of the Italian Riviera to Otterspool Promenade as you can also sip on a classic Aperol Spritz or a bottle of Moretti or Peroni with your meal with views out towards the river.
Plus, there is always room for dessert, especially when the menu includes traditional Italian treats like tiramisu alongside lighter desserts such as polenta cake with amaretto cream. You can also give that classic ice cream a boost by ordering one of Alfresco at the Prom’s affogatos- vanilla ice cream topped with a biscotti and espresso shot.
The restaurant just four miles away from the city centre is great to stop at after an evening stroll down the promenade. Alfresco at the Prom is currently open from Thursday to Sunday from 5.30pm until 10pm with plans to extend the opening hours as the evenings start to hopefully get warmer.
