The Mensa offers traditional Italian lunch items weekdays. The Mensa is operated and managed under the Air Force Club system at Aviano Air Base in order to provide Local Nationals, Italian Air Force, and on-base Contractors with a daily lunch meal at reasonable prices, Monday – Friday. The Mensa is also open to DOD ID card holders and their dependents as an alternative eating establishment on-base. The staff hosts numerous Distinguished Visitors and Senior Leadership luncheons at this facility highlighting its affordable Italian food and its friendly staff.
Since the Mensa is part of the Aviano Club, Air Force Club members receive a $1 discount on their meal (as long as the cost is greater than $5). Bring your appetite to the Mensa — You won’t be disappointed.
