Italian Canteen | Cottesloe


Once a seaside 1930’s art-deco cabaret hall on Cottesloe Beach

today — an Italian-inspired espresso bar and restaurant.

il Lido, (in Italian meaning literally “the beach”) draws on the site’s heritage as the original ‘Lido Cabaret’ being a popular cabaret hall in it’s day which we look after as our own little slice of Cottesloe history.

We are passionate about pasta, wine, coffee, cheese, desserts and almost everything Italian in between.


Built on an undying dedication to the food, drink and surrounding culture you think of when you think Italy, Il Lido is a vibrant slice of cucina povera by the enduring delight that is Cottesloe beach.

Housed in what was once the Lido Cabaret, Il Lido maintains the original tenant’s commitment to a good time through making beauty look easy then putting it in front of you and some people you care about to enjoy.

Il Lido turns eating into dining. Breakfasts worth getting up for, spot-on espresso, dish-defining pasta, sneaky and/or cheeky aperitivo and a wine list that lives and breathes good taste; Il Lido makes magic out of the whole lot. Plus cheese. Bookings are a plus but walk-ins are good too.

Open 7 til late, every day of the year except Christmas
