“Cursory service, average pizzas”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

Not impressed. Oily pizzas and arrogant management and service. The toilets were really filthy too. We liked this place in the past, but it has gone down-hill.....

“A piece of Italy in Perth”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

This is a great little Italian restaurant run by real Italians. The accents are real, the chaotic service is truly Italian and, most of important of all, the pizza and pasta and coffee is great. In true Italian style some of the servings are huge (so beware if you are on a diet). They also allow BYO as an added bonus. The restaurant is quite small and very busy, so not ideal if you are looking for a quiet night out. However, this lively neighbourhood restaurant is a pleasant surprise in an area of Perth that can be a little dull at times.

“Italian Connection”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

An excellent unpretentious restaurant that is family owned and run (no absentee owners here). True Italian expertience with non stop activity! Food is served quickly and is of high quality. The Owner - Roberto - is front and centre watching over the whole operation. Cost is reasonable given the high cost of Perth in general so his restaurant is busy!. No bookings are taken but they fit everyone in quite rapidly. Singles eat alongside other singles so there is always somebody interesting to talk with! Do go and enjoy.
I have known Roberto since early 2000 when he had an earlier restaurant nearby; you cannot go wrong eating here!

“Best place in Perth!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012 via mobile

Love this little restaurant. Food is great and service is too. Found this place 6 years ago when i first got to Perth and have been coming ever since.
I always recommend it to people when they need somewhere new to try and have received great feedback every time.
It's definitely a good idea to book tho as they r always so busy.
