Fremantle Gusto Italiano – A Taste of Italy

Shopping and Markets

Think food in Fremantle and you probably think Italian. With good reason. Italians have had a huge influence on the culture of Fremantle since the 1880s, not least on its food scene. Cappuccino, anyone? Pizza? Pasta? Garlic? It’s hard to imagine a time before these flavours were commonplace.

Indeed, we’re so accustomed to Italian food that it can be hard to pick the authentic from the rest. This trail can help. They’ve showcased a cluster of Italian eateries whose traditions run deep. They’re all about putting the real Italy on a plate, be it antipasti, primi, secondi, pasta, pizza or dolce.

Often family-run and many within strolling distance of each other, these establishments pride themselves on authentic, home-style cooking with distinctly Italian flavours. Pull up a chair and know you’ll be getting the real deal, served with a generous side of Mediterranean love.

Meals in Italia are often a drawn out affair and a chance to spend time with family and friends over several courses accompanied by good wine and avid conversation. Try ordering a course at each stop.

Buon appetito!
