While packaged pasta may be okay for a quick and easy spaghetti bolognese at home, nothing beats traditional Italian cuisine, especially when the pasta is handmade. Here are a few of Perth’s top Italian restaurants serving up their divine hand-made pasta dishes.

Lulu La Delizia, Subiaco

Small eatery and wine bar Lulu La Delizia is known for its premium pastas. It’s their Specialitât. Believing the beautiful craft of pasta is so often overshadowed by its sauce pairing, they focus on bringing the attention back to the pasta itself. Whether you’re a seafood lover or you enjoy a hearty, rich ragu, there is something for everyone to feast on.

Lulu La Delizia is almost always booked out in advance so plan ahead. Reservations can be made via phone.
