Di Chiera’s closed! It’s unthinkable!

This North Perth icon no longer the place to go for a continental roll as a lazy lunch on Sunday.

No more vast selection of calabrese or boschetto al tartufo or giardiniera or whatever Mediterranean fantasy appealed.

I don’t know why you closed, I don’t know what can be done to bring you back, but I do know that a vibrant part of our community is absent and that that absence leaves a huge hole in local life.

All I can promise is that, when you open again, I will be a very happy customer.

Tornare presto!
