About Maruzzella Ristorante Pizzeria
For a real Italian experience in Perth, head on over to Maruzzella Ristorante Pizzeria on Bennett Street. At this little East Perth restaurant they source all their ingredients straight from Italy to give diners the most authentic taste possible. From pizza and pasta to meat and seafood mains, you’ll find all the Italian classics on the menu, cooked just the way your Italian nonna would make, and all served up in a warm and inviting atmosphere. Start off with some calamari fritti or the polpette al sugo (homemade meatballs with melted cheese, Napoli sauce and toasted bread). Then, move on to a hearty pasta dish, some authentic Italian pizza, the fish of the day or the scaloppine pollo e funghi (chicken breast cooked in white wine with porcini mushrooms and a cherry tomato sauce). Buon Appetito!

The team behind Maruzzella Ristorante Pizzeria are passionate, that’s for sure. Passionate about high quality Italian food, passionate about giving their diners the best experience possible and passionate about sourcing all their produce and ingredients from people they trust. The food at Maruzzella is authentic, flavoursome and steeped in tradition – but, let’s put it this way: nonna would be very pleased to eat here. Located in the heart of East Perth, right by Wellington Square, Perth locals have been absolutely buzzing about this place since it opened in 2015.
These Italian connoisseurs certainly know a thing or two about how to whip up the best dishes in Perth, and they’re only going from strength to strength, as the years go by. To have a taste of everything, go for the antipasti plate with artisan cured meats, pecorino sardo, buffalo mozzarella and pickled vegetables to start, before sinking your teeth into the rustica pizza topped with prosciutto, tomato, mozzarella, rocket and shaved parmesan, or the chargrilled lamb chops with potatoes, eggplant croquettes and red wine jus. Oh, and all their meat is locally sourced in Perth by the Princi Butchers. You’ll find Maruzzella Ristorante Pizzeria in East Perth on the corner of Bennett and Goderich Streets. All we can say is, bring your appetite!
Love the feel of this place! Little cosy venue in East Perth which serves simple, authentic Italian food. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area - make sure to book on the weekends!
Second time we've been here. Even more impressive than the first. Service was exceptional and they were willing to accommodate our requests for changes to the pizzas we ordered. Haven't tried the 5 grain base yet but the regular kind is the best around.
Absolutly best Italian in Perth but book or miss out.. very yummy kids. Divine Gnocchi sensational pizza and amazing fish... it all amazing. Top stuff.
Small - Authentic Italian food & genuine Italian Beer & Wines. Not like most other "Italian" restaurants where the food & décor may be "Italian" - but the drinks are the same old boring brands available in any hotel or liquor store. Good service also.
Very nice, cozy setting, finding a car park was a bit of an adventure, but once we got in the restaurant we enjoyed the welcoming atmosphere of the place, however we found the choice of dishes a bit plain. I'm sure it goes along with the availability of imported produce. Pizza was really, really good, it didn't make me miss Italy at all. The benchmark, Margherita, passed our little test in full colours.
Another great meal of wonderful Italian food and service. Francesco, the owner & chef, takes the time to personally comes around to greet you and make sure your evening is enjoyable. Great job with the recent renovations.
What a great spot, terrific and very caring staff, excellent selection of Italian wines and the food was top drawer. The chairs were not the best, but a minor whinge, overall a very good restaurant that we will be visiting again.
Great well priced local gem of an Italian restaurant, in Bennett st east perth. Can thoroughly recommend to anyone wanting a nice well priced meal in a cosy atmosphere.
Fantastic Meal and service . Good location. A very happy vibe about the place. We will definately be returning the next time we are in the area
Fantastic service and food The new winter menu has a great range of hearty dishes and the Tiramisu is a must. Definitely our favourite Italian restaurant.
Very nice pizzas friendly staff all round positive experience, the chef loved what he was doing and it showed. Worth the trip from Mandurah. 10/10
We eat at Maruzzella often and really enjoy the food and company - but on this occasion one of us ordered the "special" and were shocked to find on the bill it was $38 when the average price of mains there is $20 - $25. I think there needs to be more transparency when ordering "specials" when the price is not declared. What was a cheap and cheeful local restaurant was not so last night.
Great quality Italian food! Pizza delicious ! Very friendly staff and does take away which is a bonus. Would recommend to families and couples :)
Food was great, we all enjoyed our meals, the lamb was well cooked and the pizza and pasta was great. Will come back again, when we are in Perth next.
Great Italian food, friendly service, what more could you want! The restaurant was BYO when we visited, however they are in the process of obtaining a liquor license.
The food here is very delicious. Service was great and staff really friendly. Price was also reasonable. Would definitely return for more delicious food from the menu
Great service and atmosphere. Enjoyed the pizza bases but the Margherita was a bit light on the mozzarella. Keen to try other pizzas though. Will be back.
Busy little pizzeria with attentive staff and easy street parking for a Friday night. Food was authentic trattoria style and thoroughly enjoyable. Will definitely visit again.
First time at the restaurant and the standard of the food were higher than expected. in addition to that, the service from staff was great.
Food was fantastic as usual however one of the mains was forgotten. The 3rd main came out after we had finished the 2 mains that were served. After dinner drinks were also forgotten. Staff were very apologetic though.
