Dining at Perugino Italian restaurant is not like dining at just any Italian restaurant in Perth. Head chef and owner Giuseppe Pagliaricci and his wife Rosalba take exceptional pride in their traditional menu that pays homage to Italy while at the same time showcasing local and seasonal produce of the area. Open since 1986, this passionate husband and wife team have created a stylish and chic restaurant in West Perth, a stone’s throw from Kings Park and Domain Stadium, making it the perfect trattoria to visit for a midday feast or special evening out with your loved ones. You’ll find Perugino on Outram Street, but be sure to book ahead of time as this Perth Italian haven is certainly popular with locals and tends to fill up quickly. Buon Appetito!
Perugino is Italian fine dining at its very best. This elegant Perth restaurant provides the perfect backdrop to an intimate Italian feast that we’re sure you won’t be forgetting. With sundrenched rooms adorned with plants, roses and an extensive wine collection on display, Perugino takes great pride in its lavish surroundings, and even the smallest details are taken into consideration. Of course, though, the menu is the star of the show, and this West Perth restaurant specifically showcases the best of Perugian and Umbrian cuisine, using black truffles from Norcia, white truffles from Alba, Italian olive oil and a variety of Perugian cooking techniques, like pilotto which is method of oven and spit roasting. Curious? You should be!
In true Italian style, Perugino offers primi piatti, secondi piatti and dolci, which means eat according to first, second and dessert courses. With primi, keep an eye out for the bocconcini di ricotta e spinaci of dumplings poached in a parmesan cheese cream sauce and cooked in the oven, and gamberi all'aglio of tiger prawns pan-fried with garlic, breadcrumbs and herbs. For secondi, we recommend the eye fillet of beef which has been double-crumbed, cooked medium rare and served on a bed of mushrooms; slow-roasted duck in a saffron and rosemary sauce, or quaglie con pancetta e cannellini of pan-fried quail wrapped in pancetta served on cannellini beans. Whatever your selection, Perugino in West Perth is guaranteed to delight you. You’ll find this Perth Italian haven on Outram Street – booking ahead is essential.
Greeted by friendly staff on arrival and seated promptly. Menu options explained along with the specials for the day. All 3 courses were excellent and the staff were very attentive.
A very special evening The service was perfect ( even though I was alone). And the figs (entree) and succulent goat were outstanding. Definitely going back on my next Perth trip
What a great restaurant. Always consistent high quality food and always very very helpful people. Great place. I cannot go past the authentic Italian and a pretty good wine menu.
Consistent 5 star service and high quality food. Never disappointed when I dine there. Prices not to dissimilar to a good cafe in Perth so good value. Head chef and owner has high standards and this is reflected in the food.
In terms of the view from the curb, Perugino comes across as exclusive and low profile. I drove past it twice before I found it, but I see this as a positive thing as I was wanting a special night out with my fiancée. The Italian theme was handled well in the interior without being over the top with flags everywhere or pictures of Al Pacino. Rather they assert Italy through having Italian Australian staff who said thank you etc in Italian which was a nice touch. Food was authentic and fresh and we had a three course meal which filled us up completely. The price reflected the exclusivity and quality food and service so we felt it was a fair exchange and would recommend the place to others. Sophisticated without being pretentious.
The atmosphere is absolutely correct with traditional Italian Style. Food was superb and wine delicious. My wife, Wendy and I, were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary and were really well looked after. The Chef came out to talk to us and our waiter was excellent with explanations as well as chat. The desert trolley to die for !!! If you want an intimate dinner or an office gathering, Peruginos is the place to go. We will be back time and time again. Bruce Hawley
I had the 3 course lunch: mushroom tortellini, snapper and dessert. The pasta was handmade and cooked perfectly with a delicate but flavoursome mushroom and cream sauce. The fish fresh and delicious. The vegetables were unbelievably tasty. The dessert trolley to die for. Perugino's owner came out for a quick chat. Eating here is Always a wonderful experience .
Excellent food and service. I have previously dined at Perugino over the past few years and have always enjoyed it. MY colleague on this occasion had never dined here and also enjoyed it and plans to return in the future.
This was my second visit at Peruginos and it was just as outstanding as the first time. The quality of the food and customer service are equally fantastic!
Perugino might not be shinny enough spot but definitely a star gem in perth with Traditional italian dining ambience setting. good service and ambience. will definitely be back for second visit.
