Subiaco was founded by a group of Italian monks in the 1850s and that influence – from the olive trees and fruit orchards they planted to the olive branch that endures on the town coat of arms – can still be felt today. Subiaco is still one of the best places in Perth to head to for great Italian food.
There’s Lulu La Delizia, of course, but there’s a number of other great Italian diners to choose from, too. Plenty of other spots take their cues from the Mediterranean; in recent years places such as Petite Mort and Lady of Ro have started flying the flag for French and Greek food, respectively.
There’s also a burgeoning Japanese scene in Subiaco, as well as a Jus Burgers outpost, which offers one of the best burgers in Perth.
