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.
BEAUTIFUL food and first class service. The octopus salad was just amazing and all of our mains were well presented and delicious. A really enjoyable night.
Fantastic food, service and ambiance. Definitely going to be a regular diner here. Felt very valued and not rushed at all. Impressive wine list and loved the sweet trolley.
Excellent traditional Italian fine dining with very good service. The restaurant has the passion and care of a family run business with the chef and restaurant managers are a multi generational family
Exquisite! Service impeccable and food outstanding. Well worth a visit. Beautiful location for a long lunch. Highly recommend crayfish ravioli and tiramisu! Definitely a place to spoil yourself.
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
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!
Fabulous food, elegant service, amazing wine list. Great food cooked with love using fresh local ingredients to create dishes that are at once simple but compelling. The service was out of this world - we loved seeing silver service & a dessert trolley. Old school elegance and expertise.
AMAZING SERVICE, ITALIAN FOOD WAS SIMPLY INCREDIBLE. THE FLAVOURS OF THE PASTA (PRIMI) AND THEN QUALITY OF MEAT (SECONDI) WERE TRULY FINE ITALIAN CUISINE, BEST IN THE WORLD. FINALLY THE DESSERT TROLLEY WAS TO DIE FOR!
