Located in the new Brisbane Quarter, Perone is a great venue for a business or small group lunch or dinner. Service was efficient and pleasant with just the right time allowed between seating and serving of beverages and food. Menu is typical good quality authentic Italian cuisine with generous servings for main course in particular. Ambience is quite lovely with an outlook over the Brisbane River. Restaurant was quite busy however the layout is excellent with nice spaces between other diners so that it still feels quite intimate. Would highly recommend.

Lovely ambience but the menu didn't really enthuse me, fairly standard options. Good wine list by the glass and good knowledge of team for recommendations.

I went to Persone earlier in the year and it was much nicer than December. Last week the place was packed and noisy, there was no toilet paper in the ladies toilets, the hand towels were all over the floor, there was cheap liquid soap put into another container to make it look good. The waiter was sub-standard.
I probably won't go back or recommend to friends.

our waitress Megan deserves a mention - she hit just the right notes.
Food overall was excellent - the dessert of eggplant, chocolate and goats cheese ice-cream deserves to stay on the menu.
Overall a restaurant we would certainly recommend to our friends.
Thank you.

For the price I expected the food to be nicer. The stuffed zucchini flowers lacked stuffing. Presented nicely though. Fish was a bit tasteless and the Canolli shells were a little dry and stale I thought however the filling was nice. Staff were friendly enough but it was too noisy from the traffic below. I won't go back and spend $90 per head.

Good location and views over the river and South Bank diminished by the noise levels from the city street below.
Attentive friendly service. Good food but not value for money.

We were placed on a round table in the corner but still with a view of the river. As a family group out for a private birthday dinner it was lovely to have separation from other diners. That is one thing in particular that we noted. The tables were not too close together, which is hard to get nowadays.
My wife is a coeliac so having items on the menu listed as GF is a major plus. Having to always ask what is or is not GF makes her feel like she's disrupting everyone including the family/friends she is dining with.
She was very appreciative and surprised that there was a GF dessert option that was different, namely the pistachio and chocolate. It is rare to get interesting and different GF options on a menu. Thankyou. We will be back.

Very nice riverfire night dinner. Drinks service was not wonderful. Had 3 people one drinking beer but waiter still poured 3 glasses of our wine even though only two drinking. We then had to top up our own wine. Food was prompt and quite nice although the squid was very salty and the kale on my main very oily. The porchetta was very fatty and the crackle very dry like it had been finished in dry oven. My friends ravioli pasta was tough. Table service was very nice and the setting was very pleasant. Noise level was high due to party in adjoining bar but we weren’t too bothered by it

We booked in advance from Western Australia on recommendation. Was for wife’s birthday.
We were stuck at back of a large column and lost the view and one of main purposes for dining at this location. We had view of cutlery draws.
Staff attentive for most part. Food excellent. Once our order in and served left alone.
When nobody asked about coffee, desert or after dinner drinks - we left.

Great location, wonderful attentive service and amazing food.
For a first visit this was extremely impressive. The food was well presented and perfectly seasoned to give a explosion of flavour in every bite.
The staff were very attentive without being annoying and they had an excellent understanding of the menu and pairings.
I will certainly be eating here again.
