The Best Italian Restaurants in Perth
There’s no denying that Perth’s hospitality scene has a strong Italian accent. The post-World War Two immigration wave brought with it thousands of Italians who opened continental delis, restaurants along Freo's South Terrace, and countless other hospitality ventures that have come and gone over the years.
Some of those institutions, like Capri and The Re Store, are still humming away. And they undoubtedly paved the way for a new generation of contemporary and future-classic Italian diners across the city. Whether you’re after a candle-lit trattoria serving the perfect ragu or a rowdy neighbourhood pizzeria, 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 Italian restaurants.
