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.

Had a lovely dinner the food and service were excellent and I will definitely be back. The restaurant looks great now it has been refurbished.
Fantastic service and amazing food, we thoroughly enjoyed our meal and so did our children. Great range to choose from and the meals were a good size.
Great atmosphere and friendly waitstaff who were efficient and provided delicious food. We went on a night where there were there specials and it was value for money
Always awesome! And the marinara is superb! Not to mention their pizzas and tiramisu, too good! Friendly staff as well. Will come back for more.
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.
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
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.
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.
Great service and delicious food was delivered on the night. We always enjoy our visits to Bistro Bella Vista and have done for many years. The recent refurbishments are fantastic. Craig Billing
The venue was warm and inviting, the recent renovations are pleasing and modern. The staff are friendly and displayed an excellent customer service focus. The food was, as always, excellent.
Consistently great food, great service and friendly staff. BTW the gnocchi formaggio was magnificent! Easy place to access, plenty of parking and even can get there on the free cat.
This is one of my favourite local restaurants. Friendly, helpful staff, good food at reasonable prices that are also discounted on Monday/Tuesday evenings. All within walking distance...for me anyway 🙂
Lovely food and very pleasant service. Alfredo always makes us feel at home. Good value meals and it's good we can BYO, The restaurant was booked out - very popular.
Gnocchi was amazing! Really love the atmosphere and vibe of this place since the renovation. Service is excellent, food is great and the wine room is always well stocked.
Their service was great as always and the food was very delicious, especially pasta dish. Pizza was also yum. We Will definitely go back in the near future.
Parking easy, we were happy with our choices, pasta beautifully cooked. Bruschetta well seasoned Coffee excellent. Staff worked well and were friendly,, small mistake with the bill but quickly fixed We will return
I am a repeat customer as their food is amazing! The new fit out is modern and sleek. I highly recommend the croquettes, tempura prawns, gnocchi, pizzas, semi freddo and creme brulee
Thankyou!! Beautiful meal!!! 4 of us devoured our delicious meals! We'll be back for sure!! Brilliant location and super friendly staff! Thank you so much 😊😊
Food was great with lots of flavour, nice atmosphere and service prompt. Everyone at our table enjoyed their meal. Will be going back for dinner again.
Great venue clean and bright. Excellent Food - fresh home cooked and very,very tasty. Not a dish disappointed any of my six guests. Highly recommended.
Always great here. Had the roast and it was superb as well. The new renovations are excellent . Happy to go back again very soon.
Went for lunch on a sunday. Excellent food and timely service. The spaghetti Marinara was a standout. Would happily recommend and return in a heartbeat.
The food was great, wish we had room for dessert as the tiramisu was amazing last time we visited. Service was very friendly. We will be back for more.
The service was good. The food was tasty. The place looks great and not too noisy. Fl of people. Pizza seems popular. Must make a second visit
We loved the Bistro! Beautiful atmosphere, food and friendly staff. We had 2 pastas, 2 pizzas & the lamb between six. Everything was delicious, we'll be back!
Service was good and the food was amazing. We especially loved the garlic bread and the arancini balls and the desserts were out of this world.
Really nice food and great service. Also food came out quite quickly which was great. Will definitely come back with the family and with friends.
Service was great. Food was good although inconsistent in serving sizes / especially with the parmigiana. The atmosphere was good and it was a busy night.
Service was good ! But food was ok and very expensive Not a lot of option to choose ! We used to go there when the name was cafe bellavista , I think the owner was different then. The menu was much better and so was the food .
