PERTH | Alfred’s Pizzeria offers a simple formula to those who enter the basement bar – good drinks, good pizza, good rock music. If you’re a fan of any of those three things, chances are you’ll love Alfred’s. The one time record store on Barrack Street is now an Italian American gangster-ish themed bar that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Neon lighting at street level alludes to the fun downstairs and once you’ve walked down the stairs into the small space you’re greeted with a whole lot of randomness.
Gangster mugshots hand on wallpapered walls alongside newspaper clippings rock photos and posters and, for lack of a better term ‘random stuff’. It’s a unique space that, combined with the mostly 70s and 80s rock music playing through the sound system, sets things up for a good night.
The pizzas here are tasty, with an assortment of toppings that range from the traditional to the adventurous. The ‘Home Alone’ features cherry tomato, mozzarella and basil, while the ‘Betty Rizzo’ is topped with buttered potato, prosciutto, garlic, and parsley. The ‘Flavourtown Rebels’ meanwhile is a cheeseburger on a pizza – “cheeseburger” beef, onion, and pickle. All pizzas are made fresh to order on a house made base with either a tomato or cheese sauce. You can even order takeaway or get pizza by the slice if you want.
For drinks, there’s a decent selection of craft beer in cans and bottles on offer along with classic cocktails and a wine list that veers towards Italian varietals. For spirit lovers, there’s a wide range of options available, from entry level pours through to the high end stuff.
Alfred’s Pizzeria delivers on its promise of good drinks, good pizza, good rock music, and is exactly the kind of fun, unpretentious, no-nonsense kind of bar that we love.
