Don’t skip the antipasto for two as an entrée – the platter is loaded with homely Italian favourites and a bargain at only $15.

Solo Pasta

Beaufort Street eatery Solo Pasta was put on the map in 2017 for its offering of ‘pasta by the metre’ – and it might be the most Insta-worthy eatery on this list thanks to its inventive spinach and beetroot pasta flavours. With three metres to every standard pasta dish, it’s up to you to add length and choose your base (tomato, cream or olive oil). As an added incentive, Solo have hopped on the eco-friendly train and have ditched their plastic straws for pasta tubes.

Opening hours: Sun-Thurs, 5-9pm; Fri & Sat, 5-9:30pm

628 Beaufort St, Mount Lawley 6050

Il Lido

Once an art-deco cabaret hall, the picturesquely-located Il Lido Italian canteen in Cottesloe is a hotspot for pasta enthusiasts who crave a meal with a view. With seasonal antipasti available from 11:30am daily, pop in and stay a while for a bowl of their house made pasta, on the menu from 12pm.

Pappagallo

Pappagallo is a Perth institution, and though it is renowned for its traditional, Roman-style pizzas, the pasta at Pappagallo should be similarly hyped. Head to their cosy Leederville location to indulge in a ‘Pasta of the Day’ (if feeling avventuroso), or take your pick from the menu; spaghetti, tagliatelle, gnocchi, ravioli, risotto or cavatelli just like Nonna makes! Don’t forget to take advantage of their BYO wine nights from Monday to Thursday.

Since opening in 1999, Ciao Italia in South Perth has provided many a visitor with a supremely authentic Italian experience. With melodious Italian tarantella music, spirited Italian waiters and terracotta walls, just stepping into this restaurant will evoke a uniquely Italian experience – and the food definitely has a similar appeal. Offering an impressive 17 pasta dishes, purists will delight in traditional recipes and the more adventurous will devour the ‘Ciao Italia’ special – a house combination of chicken, mushrooms and sun-dried tomatoes in a creamy white sauce. Be sure to book a table in advance because it is not surprising to find yourself waiting in a line outside the door!

Siena’s of Leederville

Sitting pretty amongst the bustling life on Oxford Street in Leederville, Siena’s spoils its guests with fine Italian food and service. Segmenting its four pasta menus by sauce and base, making a choice from Siena’s 19 pasta varieties is a humorously difficult task. Siena’s dinner specials ensure a packed house from Monday to Wednesday, with $15 pizza or pasta and $10 cocktails on offer to lucky guests who can nab a table. But, fear not – the spacious restaurant area can accommodate group bookings with ease.
