Whether you're after a candlelit trattoria serving the perfect ragu, a neighbourhood pizzeria or a noisy wine bar that trades in arancini and bresaola, Perth has the answer. Pair with a good glass of montepulciano or nebbiolo, and you're all set. Here's where to find the city's best.

Lulu La Delizia

Drawing from his family's northern Italian heritage, Joel Valvasori-Pereza serves Perth's best pasta.

Shop 5 97 Rokeby Road, Subiaco


A cosy 60-seat Italian wine bar and restaurant from the Monsterella crew.

6 46-56 Grantham Street, Wembley

Acqua e Sale

The pizza at this Sardinian-influenced diner is among the city's best. The handmade pasta, meanwhile, is uniformly excellent and the portions are big. Don’t miss the chewy house-made bread: it’s half-sourdough, half-yeast and is baked daily in the same woodfire oven as the pizza.

391 Fitzgerald Street, North Perth

Si Paradiso

A “nuovo Italo-Australian” space offering all-day drinking, dining and dancing.

446 Beaufort Street, Highgate


Melbourne chef Guy Grossi lands in Perth with dishes inspired by Rome.

No Menu Finest Italian 448

Veteran restaurateur Maurizio di Ciano swaps fine dining for casual and diners are the winners.

448 Beaufort Street, Highgate


A West Perth stalwart unapologetically of the old school (hint: there's a dessert trolley).

77 Outram Street, West Perth


Shenton Park's spirited local that has the Italian government's seal of approval.

199-203 Onslow Road, Shenton Park

Neighbourhood Pizza

You bring the booze: this lively hang-out inside a warehouse will supply the wood-fired pies and good times.

7 Anvil Lane, Mount Hawthorn

Francoforte Spaghetti Bar

Perth's little pasta restaurant that could. The vibe is suitably casual, but that's how the faithful like it.

Shop 4 189 William Street, Northbridge

Alfred’s Pizzeria

A late-night small bar serving fun pies alongside great drinks.

37 Barrack street, Perth

No Mafia

Smallgoods. Spirited Italian street food. Natural wine. This wine bar is making Perth eaters and drinkers an offer they can't refuse.

Shop 11 252 William Street, Northbridge

Dilly Dally

This spot took over from Rokeby Road icon the Witch's Cauldron at the end of 2019. It's a worthy replacement. Dishes include pork and veal meatballs, grilled flatbreads topped with mushrooms and taleggio, and some fine pizzas. The wine list is equally approachable, with drops to satisfy everyone from casual drinkers to grape nerds.

87 Rokeby Rd, Subiaco

Lalla Rookh

This CBD stronghold packs them in with bold Italian cooking and outstanding pizza.

77 St Georges Terrace, Perth


A relaxed Northbridge restaurant at the top of William Street serving Naples-style pizza.
