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.
Perugino never fails to deliver delicious, freshly home made food, together with the warm friendly and fantastic service makes for a memorable evening.Thankyou again team Perugino.
Perugino is our favourite restaurant for special occasions. The great food and attention to detail, together with excellent advice on wine pairing make it a perfect place to enjoy a leisurely dinner. Their degustation dinner is a must!
The food was delicious, ambiance is always relaxing and calm, perfect professional service without being too serious ..I will continue to book a table for either lunch or dinner
Great service, all the staff very attentive. Authentic, amazing food, great value for money. Excellent wine selection. Would highly recommend. Will be back very soon.
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 .
All of us ordered the degustation menu. Very nice, the pasta was the highlight absolutely beautiful. one dish could be improved, the meat dish at the end before the sweet. To be a little picky the last dish before the sweet needs to be something leaving me wanting more, sadly the chop was a let down. A small venison medallion would have been the icing on this Italian cake. Hard to falt the service, but again if I were to be very picky, chivalry may be old fashioned but I was left holding the chair for my mother & my wife this should have been the waiter. Would I go again Yes.
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.
What a wonderful restaurant. I have been here many times before to celebrate special occasions, and it the same wonderful service, and beautiful food. A restaurant where the waitstaff get to know you and the chef comes to your table. The food is by far the best Italian in Perth! Honestly if you don’t eat here once in your life you will be missing out.
