“Will be back!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

Great service and food. Although calamari a tad chewy, antipasto platter yum! All up a nice relaxing way to spend a couple of hours on Easter Sunday! We will return!

“Best Meal, Service & Atmosphere in Fremantle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

The menu is extensive with lots to choose from and they even do gluten free pasta, that is if you can go past the risotto, beef cheeks, salmon and everything else! The serving sizes are generous and they have a tasty looking desert cabinet (that's if you have room after your main). Prices are reasonable with mains ranging from $25-30ish. The wine list is also good. The waitstaff were attentive and friendly and the outlook onto the street provided plenty of entertainment. There was alfresco dining or in the restaurant, the tables are nicely spaced so you can actually have a conversation in this restaurant. I will be back and recommending it to my friends! Well done Tabella you are what Fremantle dining should be!!

“Fantastic Lunch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

My husband and I had a lovely lunch at Tabella today. Service from the young man was excellent. We ordered bruschetta, rocket walnut and pear salad along with gnocchi and beef ragu. We shared the dishes and all three were delicious! Coffee and a shared piece of baked lemon cheesecake was also good.

“Very nice Italian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

The mussels with linguine, garlic, chili was very flavourful and seemed quite authentic (not sopping with a tasteless tomato sauce like some many other "Italian" restaurants). The stuffed chicken was delicious but the beef cheeks were very bland. The pea side dish with anchovies and prosciutto was a real hit. Service was average. Prices are slightly lower than other restaurants in western suburbs and a nice bonus is that it is BYO. Probably rate this closer to 3.5 than 4 but the pasta dishes are amazing.

“Meal was below average quality of pub food, service unacceptable”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Had to ask three times (30 mins) when glass of wine was coming which ended up being long after the meal. Meal (beef cheeks, barolo, thyme celeriac) was overcooked tough beef (not cheeks) with no trace of thyme or any other flavour. the mash was lumpy and again unflavoured. Service was a disgrace followed by endless apologies from the manager. Other three guests had similar experiences.

About 5 restaurants have occupied this space in the last few years, tabella has been the worst yet.
