If you ever visit the Isle of Man and are lucky enough to have a bit of spare change in your pocket - you must visit Ciappelli's Restaurant. Or even have a cocktail in the wine below beneath it, which is called Aperitivo.
Ciappellis is probably the best restaurant on the Island and owned and managed by brothers Mario & Enzo. They first set up their restuarant business together in 1989 in Nobles Park, Douglas.
Their restaurant boasts fine wine & exclusive dining with dishes like fois gras, lobster and Dover sole amongst their specialities.
They offera selction of set menus for lunches and evening dinners together with sumptious desserts to tickle your taste buds.
Downstairs is the wine bar which offers an array of wines, champagnes and cocktails. The wine is very stylish & of modern decor and the clientele is often business-people.
Aperitivo offer a large selection of cocktails and champagne cocktails, one of my personal favourites being Banana Colada!
They also offer a large range of "bar" food and snacks - although perhaps not at pub prices.
This is a must for a special occasion and one not to be missed if you visit the Isle of Man
