Il Cammino Italian Restaurant and Pizzeria in Carlisle


You can find the Il Cammino Italian Restaurant and Pizzeria tucked away down a side street (Raleigh Street) off Archer Street in Carlisle. It’s an unassuming older style house but don’t be deceived by its modest appearance - Il Cammino packs a punch when it comes to tasty Italian food.

On the menu are the usual favourites such as the veal parmigiana, saltimbocca alla romana, and lamb shank, along with a fantastic range of pastas and woodfired pizzas to tempt even the most discerning of diners. Seafood lovers will enjoy the chilli mussels, which is one of the house specialties.

On the Thursday night that my partner and I visited, the string of lights outside Il Cammino beckoned us inside, and we entered the restaurant in anticipation of a relaxed evening together enjoying some traditional Italian food.

Life's Good at the Woodvale Tavern

That said, Perth offers a plenitude of family friendly restaurants that superbly cater for the family market. 

For some families, a restaurant with a play area tops their list of favourite places, for others it’s where they know that there will be something yummy for their kids to eat. 

For others, it’s simply knowing that kids are allowed in the restaurant.

Kicking Back at the Vic Park Hotel


Pubs are something of an icon of Aussie culture but to be honest, I’ve never really considered myself much of a pub person. I guess it’s because I’m not a big drinker (I’ve had one alcoholic beverage in the last two and a half years) which can also make me look and feel a little out of place. And thanks in small part to my Asian background, I’ve heard all the jokes about being unable to hold my liquor and saving money by only drinking water.

But luckily for me, pubs are increasingly more than just drinking holes, as proven during a Sunday afternoon visit to the Vic Park Hotel.
