Right in the heart of Fremantle, Portorosa is the Italian Restaurant you don't expect. Using the best available local ingredients, our Chef creates a seasonal menu featuring classic dishes, bursting with a great Sicilian flavor. Our menu is based on the Italian tradition of preparing food. We combine simplicity with the best ingredients of the season, including high quality olive oil, locally grown local vegetables and fruits, and seasonal specials of seafood, poultry, meat and game. In addition to the regular menu, our specials menu features a variety of soups, antipasti, pasta and main courses.
