Did somebody say San Daniele prosciutto? Or was it fresh D.O.P. buffalo mozzarella air-freighted from Italy? Davvero brings a genuine slice of Italy to Floreat diners, serving up authentic Italian favourites from classic pizzas to hearty pastas, not to mention some of the freshest meat and seafood you’ll find in any. The stylish setting combines rustic decor with modern touches, and the atmosphere is always casual and jovial in the most Italian way. Found inside the Floreat Forum Shopping Centre on Howtree Place, Davvero is a more-than-safe bet for quality Italian dining for anybody living in or visiting Perth.
Italian cuisine is always a favourite in Perth, but when a restaurant is run by native Italians you get a hunch that the dishes are going to be even better. That hunch is justified at Davvero Caffe e Cucina, located inside the Floreat Forum Shopping Centre on Howtree Place. Many a memorable meal here in Floreat Forum has begun with a shared antipasti board, like the Davvero Seafood board (a stew of fresh calamari, green peas, lemon & extra virgin oil anchovies, and king prawns wrapped in prosciutto), especially when you combine it with a glass of something from Davvero’s impressive Italian wine list – over 60 labels chosen from across every region in Italy.
Then you can move on to a mouthwatering main like the Guance di manzo con polenta (beef cheeks slow-cooked in Chianti red wine, served with polenta concia). However, it’s not only elegant evening dining here on Howtree Place, because Davvero are open for breakfast (freshly baked pastries are impossible to resist in the early hours, or try an Italian special like the ricotta pancakes) and lunch (a light chargrilled vegetable salad, house-made potato gnocchi, or Whiterocks veal sauteed with oyster mushrooms?). This Floreat favourite draws in aficionados of Italian cuisine from all over Perth, especially for lunch, so it’s wise to book a table and time slot well in advance.
A super light, airy venue. Warmed in the winter chill by some very effective heaters. Delicious coffee. We all ordered breakfasts and no one was disappointed - all yummy. Will definitely be heading back there.
First time dining at this restaurant - we ordered fish and pasta for our mains, olives and bread for entree! The olives were so yummy we ordered another serve! Fish was fresh and nicely cooked the homemade pasta was yummy! Staff were exceptional friendly! Very reasonably priced with three course meals and a glass of wine only $100 excellent value for money! We told them we will be back with our friends soon.
We had a pleasant lunch. Great ambience and service. The seafood pasta and fettuccine bolognese was tasty and well presented. Very reasonable prices. Would highly recommend. 👍👍
Have been to this restaurant several times now and love the food and the staff.The cocktails are great too and very reasonably priced.Can't wait to go again.
My mum and I both had the gnocchi and being gnocchi experts.......it was the best! The service was really lovely. Polite and efficient. We had a wine and I had an affagato for desert. It was not the best I have had, but it was quite good. A little on the expensive side which is a shame because it is so well set up for families and big groups. I would love to see it packed with many people sitting around on the sofa's outside as the decor is fantastic but I think the prices make it just a little prohibitive. Overall, I look forward to going back and trying some other dishes on the menu as it all looked fantastic. If the prices were a little lower I could see this resturant being around for a long time.
I have been to Daverro several times since it opened and it really is now one of my favourite restaurants in Perth. I booked a breakfast for 10 people to celebrate my birthday, and everyone commented how much they enjoyed it there. The setting is light and airy but sophisticated all at the same time. It is a great place to eat and the food is so fresh and appetising . The owner and staff are always friendly and welcoming.
We had an amazing breakfast, the choices were plenty and the food fresh and very good. The Breakfast Bruschetta with the S. Daniele Prosciutto was excellent, the Big breakfast with would have to be the best in Perth. The coffee as it should be, also excellent. The service friendly and very professional. A piece of Tuscany in Perth. Looking forward to trying lunch or dinner soon.
The food and service was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble and they were very family friendly and our family of little ones was no trouble at all. The food was delicious and so fresh which is a nice change and they even made special food to order for our dairy free kids. We will definitely be back
I took my daughter out for dinner at Davvero. We loved everything about our experience. The service was prompt and courteous. The meal was tasty and well presented. Nothing was too much trouble and we were asked how everything was at each course. A lovely stressless night out with lovely food and very pleasant surroundings.
The restaurant is lovely and staff welcoming...but for a Saturday night was not very busy. For entree : the scallops were overcooked and tough and came out almost immediately while the other entrees came 15 mn later!( Please synchronize!). My dish of melanzane dish must have come out of the freezer as the center was icy...the gnocchi were tasty; the cod dish was very tough (plat du jour)....After a long hesitation, we ordered the cake share plate, which was a delight.... Overall, not impressed, would hesitate to go back....and with 2 bottles of wine between us 4, the bill was $80.00 plus per person...
