Stepping into Maurizio Restaurant is like visiting the old country. A place where English is the second language. Where “carb” isn’t a four-letter word. Where, after a meal, you’ll be inspired to join the Italian Club next door.
It’s also known for being one of Perth’s premier dining establishments, providing authentic Italian cuisine and a high standard of service, in elegant surrounds, all with a good dose of Italian charm.
Owner Maurizio Di Ciano has received a number of accolades over the years including an Honour Award from the Restaurant and Catering Industry Association of WA for his distinguished service and professionalism to the restaurant and catering industry.
Demanding nothing less from his staff, customers have come to expect the same standard of exceptional service with every visit. This is evident from the strong patronage the restaurant continues to attract. The man behind the restaurant is often seen drifting from table to table. This is his dining room – and you are his extended family.
Head Chef Lara Pegoraro has been at the helm of the kitchen for the last year and a half. Originally from Veneto, Lara quit her job as a bank manager to focus on her passion for cooking four years ago. To help her is newcomer Giovanni Paolucci, a fellow classmate of Maurizio from their time at the famous culinary institute Villa Santa Maria in the 90s.
On being involved with Dine for Life a second time, Maurizio manager Marco Di Ciano says, “It’s very important to support the community and Dine for Life is a great opportunity for Maurizio Restaurant to do that.”
We’re so happy to have them on board!
