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.
