Think food in Fremantle, and you probably think Italian. With good reason. Italians have had a huge influence on the culture of Fremantle since the 1880s, not least on its food scene. Cappuccino, anyone? Pizza? Pasta? Garlic? It’s hard to imagine a time before these flavours were commonplace.
Indeed, we’re so accustomed to Italian food that it can be hard to pick the authentic from the rest. This trail can help. We’ve showcased a cluster of Italian eateries whose traditions run deep. They’re all about putting the real Italy on a plate, be it antipasti, primi, secondi, pasta, pizza or dolce.
Often family-run, and many within strolling distance of each other, these establishments pride themselves on authentic, home-style cooking with distinctly Italian flavours. Pull up a chair and know you’ll be getting the real deal, served with a generous side of Mediterranean love. Buon appetito!​

Supported by great organisations

Trails are free and bring so many benefits to our community by providing opportunities to have fun, get fit, socialise, explore and challenge yourself. But they also have to be managed and maintained which only is made possible through terrific sponsors, donations and/or volunteering.
