How has your week been? This week has once again been hectic but the weekend has been really fab and relaxing! One of the things I did this weekend was going out to dinner with dad, my sister and brother in law on Saturday night to an Italian restaurant in the city (East Perth) called Bistro Bellavista.
Bistro Bellavista has been open for a few years now and we’ve been there numerous times before and loved the food. We haven’t been there since New Year’s Day so it was a pleasant surprise when we returned and found the place revamped and newly decorated. We found the new decor to be tasteful, minimalistic and it really brightened the place up.
Anyway on to the important stuff- the food! For our entree we ordered prosciutto and mozzarella croquettes with house made basil pasta and fresh Parmesan ($14.90). These were so divine! The prosciutto and mozzarella mixture in the croquettes were so velvety, soft and tasty. I loved every bite of it!
Dad ordered the spaghetti granchio ($29.90) sautéed blue swimmer crab meat in garlic, chilli and olive oil with San Marzano and basil sauce. Dad’s choice was really tasty- there was a decent amount of crab in there which blended well with the sauce. The freshly made pasta was amazing as well! I couldn’t stop stealing bites of it from him!
My brother in law ordered a tagliatelle bolognaise ($22.90). The tagliatelle was also freshly made and while I enjoyed the bolognaise sauce, I still preferred dad’s choice (mainly cause I love seafood).
My sis and I shared a pizza al prosciutto ($24.90) which was topped with prosciutto, tomato sauce, mozzarella, fresh baby spinach and shaved Padano Parmesan. This was a decent sized pizza and my sis and I loved everything about it. I was more than happy to eat just over half of it – we had the rest of it packed to take away ONLY cause we wanted space for dessert! Anyone else here a dessert person?
We were all so full BUT there’s always room for dessert!
The brother in law ordered an afrogatto and the sis and I shared a tiramisu. We’re pretty big fans of the tiramisu here – it’s dusted with coffee on top, chocolate sauce on the bottom and has some nice chocolate crunchy bits on the side. The combo of these three things with the tiramisu is perfect! Definitely a dessert I recommend if you come here.
Overall Bistro Bellavista is a lovely Italian place with great pasta and pizza. The decor made the atmosphere really relaxed and casual – a great place for a casual dinner date, catch ups with friends, family and such. The food was great and even though the prices range from medium to high depending on what you order the food, portion and service justifies the price. The service was great- the staff were all friendly (cracking jokes with us), always there to help and serve when needed and polite. I’ll definitely be back and recommend that if you’re ever in East Perth, stop on over at Bistro Bellavista for a nice lunch or dinner. That’s all for now! Have a great week lovelies!
