One of the best restaurants I have been to in Australia and probably world wide. Great service even though they were virtually booked out and we were walk ups. Wonderful authentic but unusual dishes such as Goat and rabbit plus the usual broad range of...pastas and pizzas. The whole open kitchen concept is great to watch. Real cooking.More

We celebrate our anniversary amongst Xmas revellers events year. Finding a romantic spot each year is a challenge. La Sosta spoilt us with a table for two on the balcony under their lights. The food was fresh and fabulous and the service fantastic despite how...busy they were. We had an amazing night.More

Three of us ate there last night. First up, the restaurant looks really stylish and inviting and unfortunately as “walkins” there were no available tables outside - we were happy with a booth. The beef carpaccio was beautifully presented but the aragula was rather too...bitter for the delicacy of the dish. We mentioned this to the young waiter who very politely said he’d pass it on to the kitchen. The prawn pasta was excellent I was told and my squid ink crab pasta was good - however not exceptional as it was just a little light on the crab! My sister ordered the beef ragu and the pappardelle was very rubbery. When we told the waiter he said “yes, it’s al Dente”. I said no, I’m aware of the term but it’s definitely undercooked. He then went into a rather lengthy explanation of why it was impossible to under cook the pasta made in house. Such a shame as that particular dish really let the place down. Note to Chef: Perhaps an extra two minutes cooking would have made the dish excellent. I would like to try it again. The space is excellent and the service was very good!More

Went for dinner tonight with my girlfriend, and honestly, as someone who’s lived in Freo for the last few years, I really regret not coming sooner. Service was absolutely on point, really friendly and personable without being overly familiar and interrupting the meal or the...conversation. Absolutely loved the waitress and the barman who served us, you were both amazing, thank you so much. Food was up there with the best Italian I’ve had in Perth. The pumpkin and pecorino entree is probably the best vegetarian dish I’ve eaten in Australia, pumpkin was perfectly cooked, just tender without being mush, every element on the plate sang together like a choir, one of those meat free dishes where you don’t care that there’s no animal protein on the plate and it would t make it any better if there was. House made sausage was gorgeous. Rich and fatty without being unpleasantly greasy, some pickled red cabbage balanced it out beautifully, really stunning entree. Mains were spot on too. I had the pappardelle with lamb ragu, beautifully cooked lamb, just soft enough to be a sauce without being over cooked to a paste, pasta was great, that perfect sweet spot between rustic and refined, legitimately al dente and with a flavour and texture of its own, not just a background element to a sauce. My partner had the pasta of the day, which was a pork and mustard ravioli, with a simple butter, sage and Parmesan sauce. I won’t go into detail too much because it was a special, so it’s not like you’ll be able to try it, but suffice to say, it was beautiful. Cocktails were great as well, and some of the unusual beers and wines were a great touch. I’ll be perfectly honest, desserts were not in the same class as the savoury dishes. Not to say they were awful, they were perfectly okay, just not “wow” like the starters and mains. All in all, best Italian in Freo, and the price was comparable to the terrible tourist trap joints on the strip. So do yourself a favour and go here immediately.More

Bad experience! Went for my husband’s 40th birthday. One of my son have allergic reaction to one of cheese bread. So I have to get to my car & hotel to get the medicine. About 10-15 left and the main food of seafood was serve...and left on the table cold!. Just finished my food & the birthday cake already slice & served 😡 due to running in time?! At least sing happy birthday 1st for 1-2 minutes would be nice. So no pictures for the birthday party with nice whole cake! Instead small slice cake will little candle! So disappointed. So there’s not even time to be remembered?! Difficulty pram access, and no consideration or any sympathetic for mother whose worries about the son’s allergic reactions by left her cold food on the table? And coming with expectations blowing the whole nice birthday cake for the husband and wow the guests with the beautiful cake ended up being small slice and 1 candle only? Unbelievable!More

We went to La Sosta last night for our daughters birthday. There were 5 of us and we all thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. The service was great and we had such a good tentative waiter. The food and wine we could not fault. The atmosphere...is great and I can recommend this restaurant.More

We walked in without a booking on a Friday evening. We were very lucky to get a table, we were told that we would have to leave by 7.45pm, we had walked in at 5.50pm. That was fine by us. The staff were very friendly....Our orders were taken very quickly. 5 of us had pasta and the 6th person had the spatchcock. we were very happy with our meals. The atmosphere was perfect. although a little on the dark side when trying to read the menu.More

It was long time ago, but now they have a great wine list and a bar with amazing cocktails, so it is no longer b.y.o
