“Another excellent meal!”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

We enjoyed another visit to the Bistro end of August and were not disappointed. We had visited early July and had a wonderful meal and were looking forward to returning. The pasta entrees are very good, generous portions and reasonably priced. Service is excellent, attentive and pleasant. Arriving early is a good idea as it is difficult to get in later. We will definitely visit the Bistro on our next visit to Perth.

“Lovely pasta”
Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

This is a quaint little place very reminiscent of old Italy. The pasta was fresh and perfectly prepared. Tasty sauces. The Catania was just delicious with salty olives and juicy chicken breast. Reasonable prices, good solid service, and a fine meal.

“Very Italian”
Reviewed September 5, 2013 via mobile

You walk into a small Italian restaurant with Italian music playing, it's a great setting. First comes homemade bread and fresh olive oil and balsamic vinaigrette home made as well. We had the bruschetta which was the best I've ever had. Then I had the chicken Parmesan (also best I've ever had) big portions too. My girlfriend got the veal Parmesan it was excellent too. We ended up taking a lot home to enjoy later because we were so full. Pricey but completely worth it.

“FELT LIKE WE WERE IN ITALY”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

Excellent meal in a small restaurant with red and white checked table cloths! Reservations cannot be made so arrive early as it seems to be a popular spot in the old Scottish town of Perth.

“Bistro Italian Ristorante”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

Had to wait over an hour for a table for 6---- was worth the wait--- attentive wait staff seated us in upper lounge providing drinks & bread appetizer. Seating is quite limited thus they do not accept reservations.

Meals were excellent all round.

Quaint setting in an old building from 1858 in downtown Perth.
