An immersive riverside experience bringing the joy of Italy to Perth.


Gioia shifts the tide in East Perth.

A traditional restaurant brings the heart of Italian cuisine right to The Majestic Building on Royal Street’s Claisebrook Cove.

You can taste true, authentic Italian cuisine whilst dining on glistening waterfront views.

For over 8 years, Andrea and Lofa have piloted Andiamo Cafe in Rockingham to stellar success. Winning multiple awards, including Best Restaurant in Western Australia twice, the National Bronze Medal, and numerous nominations for the Gold Plate awards.

Now, they are shifting tides and opening a new, fresh Italian experience on the river – Gioia.

Italians are poetic, romantic, and have an appreciation for food that is engrained in their culture. It is fitting that Gioia means “joy”, which fuses together an eclectic celebration of food, familia, and nostalgia upon the shimmering waters of East Perth.

“Our food is a fusion of traditional Italian flavours and modern style cooking,” says Lofa and Andrea. But what is more, is that it is a fusion between the appreciation of food and a proclamation of its capabilities to connect people in the joy of a shared meal. Come and experience this feeling for yourself, here at Gioia on the River.

In November 2021 we proudly took home the Catering Institute Gold Plate Awards for Mediterranean Dining!
