More about Portorosa Cafe - Fremantle, Fremantle

With two stunning restaurants in both Fremantle and Spearwood, the team behind Perth’s Portorosa Cafe are going from strength to strength, and locals are just loving it. Paying homage to their Italian and Sicilian heritage, this traditional restaurant is brimming with fresh and flavoursome dishes just begging to be tried. Named after owner Joe’s mother Rosa, and the large harbour in Milazzo and Tindari, Portorosa Cafe is a nod to the rich and vibrant culinary traditions of this delectable cuisine.

Relax with a glass of wine or two, and indulge in several antipasti dishes to share, like the deep fried local calamari, beef carpaccio, or antipasto Italiano of prime cold meats, cheese and olives along with homemade bread, ideal for sharing with loved ones. For the main event, it’s hard to go past the spaghetti portorosa brimming with calamari, clams, prawns and mussels in a white wine and chilli sauce, the homemade gnocchi with your choice of Italian sauce, or perhaps a prime scotch fillet cooked to perfection. Also offering traditional, fresh pizzas done the way they should, Portorosa Cafe in Fremantle is Sicilian dining at it’s finest. You’ll find this Perth haven along Market Street.

The food was absolutely gorgeous. A reasonably extensive menu to choose from with great Italian choices. Staff were extremely helpful with the menu, drinks and answering any questions even though they were busy. We sat outside and the time seemed to fly by. Definitely worth the visit at anytime.

Food was delicious and went well with the Shiraz. Restaurant was small but I think it's only temporary before Portorosa moves into a larger newly renovated restaurant nearby. Staff are very friendly. Highly recommended.
