In short, Grazie a Dio! makes a perfect excuse to get that much closer: dim lighting, Sambasonics on Sunday evenings and, crucially, loads of lush lubricants. The bar doles out a great yet affordable wine selection, long-neck beers, and a number of cocktails including the eponymous house drink made from a heavenly mixture of vodka, chocolate and pineapple.
Open from Tuesday to Sunday for dinner and live music, the space also features a delightful gallery showcasing a rotating roster of local artists. Needless to say, there’s never a dull moment in this snug Vila Madalena venue that oozes with romance.
