Tucked away in the leafy and historic suburb of Guilford in the Swan Valley, Kappy’s family owned and operated restaurant treats diners to delightful Italian fare and warm hospitality. The Valenti family have poured their heart and soul into the restaurant which is now run by their daughter Bianca because keeping things in the family is the Italian way, and they greet their diners like they are all kin.

LOCATION
Guilford is located at the ‘gateway’ to Swan Valley, five minutes from Midland and only 20 minutes drive from Perth CBD

PROFILED BY DE GROOTS MEDIA
In a tiny town that embodies a personality of its own sits Kappy’s restaurant, housed by a 1940s heritage listed building that has seen decades of lives pass through its doors. This old sandstone building sits in the eastern suburb of Guilford, just 20 minutes from Perth. Originally a favoured site for Captain Stirling’s first Swan River settlement in the early 1800s, Guilford was a lively market town and inland port that received boats of settlers and supplies. Today, Guilford is known as ‘the gateway to the Swan Valley’ yet the historical charm prevails in the form of hotels, schools and the joyful Kappy’s restaurant.

Kappy's atmosphere is created by its occupant's bubbling and friendly personalities. Since opening in 1980, the Valenti family have poured their heart and soul into the restaurant which is now run by their daughter Bianca because keeping things in the family is the Italian way, and they greet their diners like they are all kin. The smiles don’t stop there with a mouth-watering menu of traditional Italian specialties. Starters include favourites like bountiful antipasto platters featuring slabs of boutique cheeses and plump, glossy olives, or the delicious beef carpaccio with parmigiano, capers and lemon dressing. Kappy’s pizzas are made fresh to order and feature crispy bases with a selection of gourmet toppings like the sharply flavoured prosciutto with blue cheese and avocado, or spicy sausage with calabrese, rocket, olives, tomato and mozzarella. Rich flavours are the focus of mains such as the tender chicken breast with prosciutto drizzled in blue cheese sauce; the classic scaloppine of crumbed veal with fontina cheese and tomato, or the meltingly tender roast lamb rump. Despite the entire menu being so enticing, make sure you try Kappy’s cassata – a traditional Sicilian ice cream bejewelled with fruits and nuts that is easily the best in Perth.
