Like their other location over in North Perth, Mondo Fresco on Albany Highway in St James is a mecca for lovers of proper Italian food. By ‘proper’ we mean a few different things: homely, hearty, traditional, generously sized and very, very tasty. Mondo Fresco do a lot of things just how nonna would, from rolling fresh pasta dough to balancing just the right amount of tomato and chilli into a fiery arrabbiata sauce. The fresh, handmade pasta is undoubtedly Mondo Fresco’s star attraction, coming in a range of types and sauces that allow an eating experience totally unique around this part of Perth. However, try Mondo Fresco’s delicious gourmet pizzas, homestyle soups or healthy Italian salads and you’ll see that this St James gem is no one-trick pony.
