The best place to eat in Karratha? Try lunch at the authentic Luce Bar e Cibo

Karratha is the gateway to the Kimberley. A central point to set up your base for adventuring out into the wilderness, whether it’s hiking, fishing, or four-wheel-driving; immersing yourself in the ancient stories of the land’s traditional owners; or discovering some of the most unique national parks that Australia has to offer.

It’s a place for adventure. Which, to be honest, isn’t necessarily known for its food scene; but at Luce Bar e Cibo, you’ll find a sophisticated slice of Italy within the Karratha International Hotel.

Whether you’re out for lunch in Karratha or want to book a special dinner with your significant other, here’s why Luce Bar e Cibo is the perfect place to eat and enjoy some quality time on holiday.


Treat yourself to exquisite Italian food

Discover an authentic Italian alfresco experience without having to travel far at all. Luce Bar e Cibo brings the very best in Italian cuisine to the heart of Karratha.

Indulge in dishes made from fresh, high quality, locally-sourced ingredients: there’s something to tempt every palate.

Start with enticing antipasti—think house-baked focaccia, grilled whole Shark Bay tiger prawns with scampi butter, fried calamari, and more. Or tuck in to one of the mouth-watering seasonal pasta dishes, whether it’s a classic pork ragu gnocchi, or a rich pumpkin ravioli with burnt butter, maple, and feta.

If you want something bigger, the generous mains have you covered. Dive into the local seafood with the fish of the day, or sink your teeth into a succulent 300g Pitch Black Angus MSA scotch fillet.

Round out the meal with sides to suit every dish—or take it simple with a selection of hand-tossed Neapolitan-style pizzas. 

It’s not finished yet: satisfy your sweet tooth with a selection of traditional Italian desserts to finish.

Looking to treat family and friends on a special occasion? Check out the sharing menu, which features all our customer and staff favourites, with bigger serves so you can share them around the table.


What’s a good meal without good drinks?

From classic aperitivi to modern mixes, the Luce Bar e Cibo drinks list offers a wide variety of options to suit any taste.

Our carefully-curated wine list features labels from WA and beyond, with a big selection of imported Italian wines to compliment your meal perfectly. We’ve also got a range of beers designed to pair perfectly with the hot Karratha sun.

Sip on a delightful aperitivo as the sun sets, and you get ready for your meal. Our cocktail list features classic Italian flavours for you to enjoy in comfort, surrounded by the Karratha International Hotel’s poolside oasis.

It’s a truly unique meal experience you won’t get anywhere else in Karratha.
