The nicest slices in Perth

  • Highgate

Enjoy pizzas at Si Paradiso in Mount Lawley outside in their Italianate amphitheatre with a vino, soaking up the sunshine. Their pizzas have a 50/50 Roman and Napoli vibe, representing the best of both worlds. A longer ferment (96 hours!) makes their bases super light on the stomach with a crisp base and crunch on the pillowy crust, but you can still pick a slice up if you are standing. The toppings are anything but ordinary and full of flavour hits, with rotating specials every two weeks driven by experimental ideas and seasonal produce. 

Order the: Classico Paradiso ‘Margherita’ to start with – San marzano sugo, mozzarella di bufala and basil – then move onto one of their specials.

Takeaway or delivery: Takeaway only. Order online at http://si-paradiso.com.
