Further Information

Italian food in Fremantle doesn’t get much better than Cafe D’Freo on Essex Street. This restaurant is a favourite amongst Fremantle and Perth dwellers, and serves up splendid seafood, pastas, pizza, risottos, burgers and salads, with plenty of meat and veggie-based options for carnivores and vegetarians, alike. For lunch, the dishes at Cafe D’Freo are not only made with fresh, locally-sourced produce but they feel so decadent you will return time and time again to this Perth place to try out all the dishes. We recommend ordering the salmon bruschetta on toasted sourdough with smoked salmon, avocado, rocket and capers. Alternatively, opt for the veal and pork polpette with balsamic cherry tomatoes and parmesan on top.

If you’re hitting up Cafe D’Freo for an evening meal, we simply cannot give enough praise to the crumbed chicken parmigiana served with bolognese sauce, cheese, homemade chips and salad – which packs a comforting, yet refreshing punch. For any veggies in the house, we advise ordering the ricotta ravioli with spinach, mushrooms, walnuts which is surprisingly light and zesty for a pasta dish. It’s fair to say that no trip to an Italian restaurant is complete without a sizeable dessert being consumed, and you can expect sweet specials that change daily at Cafe D’Freo – perfect for a nice sugar hit with your espresso after a big meal.

Service was excellent but food was not great. Arancini balls were awesome and the Cabonara was great. The Ravioli wasn't fresh or condiment suitably to be authentic Italian.
