At Perth’s Bistro Bellavista, a simple yet pleasing dining space allows all the more focus on the excellent Italian and Mediterranean food that is being served. Find this popular little restaurant on Bennett Street in East Perth – just opposite the east side of Wellington Square – and be engrossed by the feeling of family that’s floating about the place. This is a spot that’s fit for all occasions and one where you will always be appreciated and made to feel welcome. You know what we mean, one of those charming little restaurants that just feels like a part of its community. Like it has always been there and will never go away. Just lovely, if you ask us.
Begin your meal with some glorious antipasti, then move onto some pizza, pasta or secondi piatti. We love the spaghetti with sauteed blue swimmer crab, onions, chilli and garlic, as well as the homemade potato gnocchi cooked in gorgonzola sauce with a touch of tomato. The pizzas are some of the best in Perth and come with classic toppings as well as some slightly more gourmet – the pizza agnello with braised lamb, caramelised onions, feta, pine nuts and mint yoghurt being our pick of the bunch. If you’re feeling like meat, however, then of course we wouldn’t be in East Perth without some parmigiana. Bistro Bellavista’s take is a crumbed chicken breast topped with napoletana sauce and bocconcini. If you like Italian and Mediterranean food, Bistro Bellavista is your place to go in Perth. That’s all there is to it.

Excellent meal, great servings and very well priced. 👍👍👍 we will certainly be going back. Great sponsors of the Perth Demons as well. Thank you for support 👍👍👍👍
Pleasantly surprised. The exterior is not that inviting but once inside friendly, helpful staff, great food, good prices, a clean restaurant and a great drinks selection. Would recommend to others for sure.
always a great meal and excellent service. make great pizza's and pasta and the roast on Sunday is delicious. Good selection of desserts and very good wine selection.
Great meal the second time around, great service also. Nothing to fault. Highly recommend the cabonara pasta and prawn pizza. I woulde definitely visit again.
The atmosphere was buzzing on Saturday night. WE were promptly taken to our table and attended to in a timely manner. We ordered the croquettes for entree and they were really delicious. We ordered a seafood marinara and a grilled steak for mains, The Seafood marinara was a generous portion and tasty . The steak was not tender and the sauce reduction on top was bland. I've had much better steaks done at a local pub. A chef shouldn't have any problems cooking a sirloin steak! Not a bad place for a night out with quite reasonable prices however we prefer the Antico Restaurant which not too far from the Bistro Bella Vista and head there next time.
We had an enjoyable family dinner at Bistro Bellavista. They were accommodating regarding enquiries about bringing a cake to be served at the restaurant. The food was good Italian cooking. The atmosphere in the restaurant was lively and fun. Thankyou for providing a lovely family dining experience.
Good value for money for a reasonably authentic Italian dining experience. Staff pleasant and reasonably attentive however we have never been there while they have been busy. A constant gripe for me is that the food and plates just aren't hot enough, suggesting that most items are premade and warmed through whereas fish that has to be cooked to order is fine. Nevertheless enjoyable , very tasty and well worth a visit. A good local family restaurant.
Very clean restaurant. Staff are attentive and knowledgeable Menu was extensive Food is authentic and every dish we had was fantastic. We would highly recommend Bistro Bellavista and will be back
We have dinner here every time we visit Perth and stay at the adjoining motel. The food always exceeds our expectations and the staff is fantastic without fail and welcomes us as friends. We are returning permanently to Brisbane next month and this bistro will be sorely missed by us. any person dining here will not regret it. Glenn and ietje
Party of 4. All had different pasta dish and shared arancini balls for entree. Evey dish was delicious and very reasonably priced. Beautiful decor (looks like it's recently been renovated.). Staff gave great service. Ambience good, it was a bustling Saturday evening rush while we were there and it was loud but added to the atmosphere.
Went here for the first time and was very pleasantly surprised by the service and the quality of the food (really, really good). Used to go to Siena's in Leederville for years but as its standards have now dramatically declined this will definitely be our go to restaurant for Italian from now on.
Awesome food as always, unfortunately several of the staff were too busy to be friendly or to even find out where a dish of food belonged on a table they just dumped and run. But love this place and next time will look forward to the normal staff who a Friendly and always up for a banter.
I had been to the restaurant 5 years ago. The renovations are fantastic and definitely make the venue extremely inviting and family friendly. Waited a while to be initially served, but staff were friendly and it was a busy time of evening. We had entree, main and dessert and every course was amazing.
This was our first time at Bella Vista since the refurbishment. The food was lovely but perhaps not worth the wait. Restaurant was only half full (we had a little one in our party, so had booked for 6pm), so expected the food to come out a little quicker. Wait staff were friendly but not overly attentive, it did take a couple of attempts to attract their attention when we wanted to order extra drinks etc. Overall, a pleasant evening, but probably no longer our "go to" restaurant
Four of us enjoyed our meal. Garlic bread to start followed by 4 mains. The pasta dishes was so devine, so much flavour!! The pizza was huge and full of goodness. Service was amazing.....friendly and helpful. Thankyou..... we'll be back for sure!
We took our overseas friends to Cafe Bella Vista for a nice dinner on a wet winter Tuesday night . It was a nice warm ambience and they gave us a great corner round table for a very enjoyable meal. It was Pizza pasta special night and they were delicious.
I had an entre serve of prawns with custom made green Greek salad. Just the right size fro a main. Partner had the steak. Good wine list with affordable choices. Great service, good food and good time. Will be back.
Service was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu items. The meals themselves took a while to arrive. We ordered both pasta and pizza dishes and they were all delicious, although serving size is probably on the smaller side when it comes to Italian restaurants.
Beautifully renovated, and a great atmosphere. The staff were friendly and attentive and the food was delicious, it had improved 10 fold since I was last here maybe there has been a change of management/chef. I was also very impressed there was a house red for $28 a bottle! Will definitely be coming back :)
Love this place. Staff are so friendly and food always comes out super quick. Love the carbonara and the aglio olio. Parmigiana was average and the arancini's were a bit over cooked but still yum.
