Came here with some friends and had to suggest that they try this charcuterie plate. I loved it the first time I had it, and they really enjoyed it too. Perbacco certainly knows how to make delicious salumi!

This charcuterie and cheese board was wonderful and worked great with their wines at Opolo. It was very relaxing to sit on their patio and sip wine and have a midday snack.
