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. 👍👍
