Exactly the same as last review . Special of fish of day was $47 for grilled snapper and few diced veges . Plus 2 glasses of wine $118 Way over top for suburban family restaurant. That is reserved for fabulous fine dining . Place is always full so perhaps we weren't as used to be ripped off like the others.... More

Not only did we wait 45 minutes for our mains to arrive (fresh linguine with prawns), but the serving size was small, only four prawns on the dish and at the end of our meal, we were stung with a $112 bill! Absolutely appalling. We made the mistake of not checking the price of the pasta on the specials menu,... More

Short and sweet as I don't want to waste my breath on this restaurant. Went here for dinner on recommendation with my fiancé's parents. Got a table straight away which was good. We ordered some starters that came quite fast. Arancini balls were pretty nice. And then it all went downhill... Mains took 40 - 1hr quarter to come out...... More

Enjoyed lunch recently. The food was absolutely delicious! They offer an express lunch menu which had mostly stuffed flat breads for around $15. The servings were on the large size. The chef was very liberal with the garlic so keep this in mind when ordering. Service was a bit hit and miss especially considering there was only a dozen guests.... More

They don't take bookings and we were told there should only be a small wait on a Saturday night but when we got there we were confusingly asked to leave for 30 minutes and when we took a vacant table at the bar we were told we had to vacate it since there was a queue for these tables and... More

Had an early after work dinner here, so we got in not long after 5pm. By the time we left (6.30), the place was full and too noisy to hear any conversation. Lots of people waiting for tables too (I was told they don't take bookings). We both had the veal with lemon that was the special of the day.... More

Bellissimo is an old Claremont institution that has been through numerous owners and now returned to the original founder Albassio. His focus is totally on doing things very 'right' and he is nailing it. Excellent casual food atmosphere (thin crispy pizzas), the pasta (try the marinara), all very traditional Italian fish and meat dishes, especially the capretto (goat) melts in... More

I went to this restaurant on a Tuesday evening with 3 family members. The establishment was about one-third full. Despite a wonderful review from a food critic I found this eatery to be average in many respects. A meatball pizza was underwhelming. The osso bucco was no better than we cook at home and perhaps not as tasty. The waitress... More

What a suprise in Perth; a well priced restaurant with fantastic food. The portions were very generous and well presented, and the service was impeccable. Great wine list too. And the tiramisu was totally to die for. We'll definitely make a point of eating there again on our next trip to Perth.
