Anchovy doughnuts. Bread and butter plus a tiny saucer of rich vegetable sugo. Braised kid goat. Meek flavours have no place at this intimate trattoria zeroing in on the robust food of Italy's north. In the hands of a lesser chef, this brief might translate to overwhelming dishes that rely on shock and awe, but Joel Valvasori-Pereza's cooking hits those sweet spots for flavour, satisfaction and balance. Raw kingfish with lemon thyme, ginger and a colatura and orange juice vinaigrette is dazzling, as are dainty rafts of raw beef with smoked bone-marrow fat. Skipping the pasta would be unthinkable. From veal and pork ragù tagliatelle to thick bigoli in a sweet onion salsa, Lulu La Delizia remains Perth's high-water mark for pasta. Don't hesitate to quiz sommelier Alex Rogers for advice: his Italian and local selections transform any visit into a celebration.
