Food was excellent. Very fresh, great flavour and well presented. As it was New Year's night, the cafe was fully booked. The wait staff were courteous and efficient but flat out which unfortunately meant a long wait to order and be served. Because it was packed, very high noise levels too. Definitely will go again - just at hopefully a less busy time.
Food was wonderful, place is cozy. However, Staff too hurry to complete taking orders; we haven’t ordered our drinks yet and staff is rushing to leave, making us trying to catch them to order our drinks, but maybe they’re just understaffed that night. Will definitely come back again
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.
