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. Bookings are essential.
My family and I have never been disappointed! being Italian and great cooks we are all a little nervous when we eat Italian out. Perfect!
The restaurant provides us very good service and the food were excellent. The location is very good and we had a parking space just around the corner. Great experience.
Service and food is always good. This is our favourite local Italian restaurant. The wood fired pizzas are the best, I usually have the seafood which is always fantastic. We are a family with 3 adult children and they love it too.
we always come to Portarosa when up in Perth. perfect restaurant that caters for kids as well as adults. Food beautiful , and service to match.
The food was delicious & fresh. There were 5 of us & not one complaint. We had one with health issues that required asking things to be done a little different, but nothing was a problem for them. The lady that served us was lovely, friendly & helpful. We’ve been here a couple of times before & loved it every time. We’ve had problems finding a nice place to eat in Fremantle, but I can’t stop praising this restaurant.
Yummy food and fantastic service! We'll be back (again) Such a great place - so friendly with a lovely atmosphere. Well done guys - you did it again ;)
.great service, great food. I had the risotto fungi which was fantastic, flavoursome and very satisfying. Well worth a visit to this restaurant. We will be going there again
It has great service, great food and very friendly staff. It is in a great place in the heart of Fremantle, Would highly recommend it
Delicious food and lovely service. The Meals arrived quickly and the staff were very friendly. Will definitely return back for another yummy dinner soon! 🍴
Food was good, prices acceptable, friendly staff, but: as there were only 2 other tables being used the service was very poor, long waits and some desserts forgotten. The service could be much better.
