An Immersive Riverside Experience Bringing the Joy of Italy to Perth.

Authentic Italian Restaurant with Unmatched Views of the Swan River

Gioia is located in the heart of Claisebrook Cove, East Perth. Sitting on the banks of the Swan River, with unparalleled views of the water, and a short walk to Matagarup Bridge and Optus Stadium.

Dining on the terrace, overlooking the river, you will experience the joy and relaxed holiday vibes of the Mediterranean, encouraging you and your guests to take your time and savour every moment.

Our food is a fusion of traditional Italian flavours and modern-style cooking. Owned and run by local Italian and experienced restaurateur, Andrea, our menu is inspired by our own Italian family recipes, and an appreciation for food that is ingrained in Italian culture.

Our menu rotates seasonally, utilising the freshest, locally sourced produce. This is complemented by a wine list that is perfectly suited to our food, showcasing both local wineries and some international favourites.

Gioia is the perfect place to impress family, loved ones or clients with quality, authentic Italian food, exceptional service, and the best river views in Perth.

Gioia translates to ‘joy’ in Italian, and from our friendly team to the carefully curated menu, that is the atmosphere we hope to inspire when you visit us.



“In Italy, food is a celebration. It brings family and friends together to share laughs and create memories. What better place to share the joy and enjoy beautiful, authentic Italian food, than here in East Perth, with the sparkling water views watching dolphins play.”

Andrea De Luca, Owner, Gioia on the River
