There’s nothing that merges Italian and Australian culture more neatly than aperitivo – and who wouldn’t be on board with a reasonably priced afternoon nibble and drink? Get a taste of Italy right here in WA, with some of Perth’s best aperitivo hours:
Is there any greater shrine to Perth’s favourite cocktail than the glowing, orange monument that is Spritz Spizzicheria? Their menu takes you from a long afternoon of cocktails and nibbles to more substantial pasta, pizza and mains – or take advantage of their aperitivo time: two hours of drinking and snacking specials (Italy’s best recent export?). We’re starting to think Mount Hawthorn is punching above its weight in culinary options.

Canteen promises pizza, wine and a real good time – and they certainly deliver. On our list of favourite pizzas in Perth, these guys have a view to match. Drop by between 3 and 6 any afternoon (that’s weekend OR weekday!) for their aperitivo specials, which includes $10 spritzes. If it’s a Monday night, you’ll also be able to enjoy their killer pizza and pinot deal. What could be better?
As if you needed an excuse to wrap up work early – Cecchi’s irresistible courtyard and fresh Italian dishes have fast become a favourite amongst locals. Even more irresistible? Those aperitivo specials between 3 and 6, Thursday to Saturday – like $5 beers, $9 piccolo cocktails and some delectable snacks (think panzanelle, cured meets and cheese, and some classic pizzas).
An afternoon in Garum’s alfresco, amongst the heritage architecture and climbing vines – well, that’s nothing to sniff at. But add an aperitivo into the mix? We can hardly contain ourselves. Head to Hibernian Place between 4:30 and 6pm, Wednesday to Saturday for half price drinks and bar
