As people that frequent The Blue Duck next door, we also often come to Barchetta - which, providing we can get a balcony table, is fantastic and beats the neighbours for service (not too difficult..), and also variety in terms of menu content. We find dining inside just too noisy and akin to school or work canteens due to the lack of carpeting on the floor. Scrapes of chair legs and noisy chatter may not bother some but we come to the ocean for a more zen like experience than simply a good and busy place to eat.
Pizzas here are superb with a great range and prices are reasonable for rip-off Perth. The overall menu is varied, the food fresh and the service friendly and prompt. Barchetta has always been the clear preference of my partner for this reason. There are however no heaters outside and the balcony, not being as large as The Blue Duck, has fewer tables so if we can't get one on the balcony, we go venture next door..or give up...!
Barchetta is yet to disappoint - even the loos are not too shabby with a great ocean view! Highly recommended and if you don't mind noise, there is little to fault. The restaurant is right on the beach and not across a road as so many are in Perth and surrounds. The hole left in the wallet is fair not shocking and all in all, this is well worth a visit - or several.
