Lulu La Delizia: Restaurant review

It’s impossible to imagine Perth’s dining scene without Lulu.


It's impossible to imagine Perth's dining scene without Lulu. Clued-up out-of-towners and locals alike jostle for tables at the pert osteria, desperate to join one of the city's favourite parties. While the room now sports a slick charcoal palette, the restaurant's MO remains unchanged. Northern Italian food culture (spice, woody herbs, no small amount of butter) drives the kitchen's thinking while the drinking's centred around Franciacorta, nebbiolo and other regional signatures. Although gin-cured kingfish, plush meatballs and the grappa-spiked tiramisù are rightly regarded as classics, outgoing waiters will steer you towards the chef's menu: a six-course throwdown starring new works and off-menu pastas. Take their advice. Your leap of faith will be rewarded with the likes of kingfish collar served with crisp pizzelle, roasted quail alongside a pine nut and grilled bread salad, or dainty curls of saffron gramigna tossed through hunks of pork sausage. One of WA's finest, without question.
