Straddling the border of Nedlands and Crawley, Ciao Italia on the corner of Broadway and Caporn Streets is ideally positioned to serve the local community the fine, affordable Italian cuisine the restaurant is famous for. This exceptional Italian eatery keeps its cuisine traditional, so that means fresh, seasonal ingredients, homemade pasta, and of course, lots of passion. Established in 1999 in South Perth – home to Ciao Italia’s other location – the restaurant has been a continuous favourite among Perth’s Italian-food fanatics. This bustling restaurant stays busy during much of the week, so be sure to book advance to secure your table.
For students at the nearby University of Western Australia, Ciao Italia’s Nedlands location is a godsend. This unique restaurant at the Broadway Fair Shopping Centre has made a name for itself among students and locals alike, drawing in diners from all over Perth to sample their creative Italian delights. Casual and relaxed, the restaurant is ideal for any dining occasion whether it’s a big family gathering or a dinner for two. With true Italian hospitality, you’ll feel a whole world away from Perth.
Located at the Broadway Fair Shopping Centre, on the corner of Broadway and Caporn Street, this branch of the Ciao Italia family does the classic red-and-white-checkered tablecloth and flamboyant service vibe justice. And the food is impeccable also, about as lush as Nedlands and drawn from time-honoured Italian tradition. Pizza, pasta, meat and chicken dishes are all on the cards, from classic Neapolitan pies to seafood risotto to saltimbocca alla Romana and pollo alla griglia. Bound to be busy at the best of times, book now!
They are very friendly and helpful. I especially like the chilli mussels. They were good size, not just the shells, the meat were juicy and of good size too!
Service staff were warm and friendly. They got really busy but never forgot when we asked for chili oil and chili flakes (which is great for spicy lovers btw). Portions very huge. I have a big appetite but got through about 2/3 of the way and had to take the rest back. Tried the tiramisu which was good too! Light and still could stuff some in after the main course.
Always great food, attentive service and HUGE servings. Cannot go wrong with this place and its BYO and takes bookings during the week. Highly recommend.
The reception was very welcoming and service was great, then the meal WOW we had the pizza and then the cake, if we could move closer so we could go there more often we would. We will go back again.
We are very satisfied with the service and food served by Ciao Italia. The food portion served were very generous and delicious. Carbonara spagetti was our favourite. The classic tiramisu was the highlight of the meal. It's a must-order when you visit Ciao to complete our meal. The best tiramisu that I ever have in my life. Keep up the good work, Ciao! Thank you for having us and we will definitely visit again if we go back to Perth. :)
Still awesome as always, except maybe my all-time favourite Risotto Al Funghi could have been a bit more salty/tasty. Still good, but not like the usual. Everything else is great - Pizza Calzone, Fettuccine Ciao Italia, Spaghetti Carbonara, Linguine Alla Salerno with chilli tomato sauce (this is the winner). Service is great as always, asked for a baby chair and was quickly attended to.
Tasty pasta, pizza and dessert that came in huge portions and reasonable pricing. We had garlic bread and fried calamari as entree, squid ink pasta, Ciao Italia spaghetti and Tropicana pizza for mains. Finished with hazelnut choc gelato and tiramisu. Will be keen to try Nutella Pizza next time!
Love coming to Ciao Italia. The food is very good and substantial for the price. Only niggle is that sometimes you have to wait a while or flag a staff member down to take your order. This is only sometimes, but it would be great of they were proactive more often.
We tried the new outlet at Nedlands, food is good as usual, less noisy and crowded than the South Perth outlet which made dinner more enjoyable. The dessert - Tiramisu is fantastic, a must have to complete the meal ! Truly awesome
Ordered the bolognese ravioli and porcini pizza and both were delicious (although the pizza has shrunk, I remember them being really big at the South Perth branch). Service was excellent, welcoming and friendly. Highly recommended and will definitely be back!
