Great place for dinner

The service was very good, the dishes are perfect specially the paradela pasta with the crabs and the calamari for starter. The best Italian food in Cairns!

Superb! I celebrated my 40th birthday with a small group of friends at Bellocale, following a show at the theatre. We ordered from the main a la carte menu. The wait staff were excellent in offering advise and answering questions about the mouthwatering menu. I ordered the beef carpaccio as an entre and veal Scallopini for main. The waiter was... More

Recently enjoyed a really lovely meal at Bellocale. The excellent service was the first thing we noticed. The staff gave clear descriptions of the meals and specials. They were not pushy or in a hurry for our order. The food we selected also turned out to be excellent. Easily comparable with the better food we enjoyed while travelling around Italy.... More

We have eaten here 4 times and it is always a pleasure. Food is always great, and service is always efficient and pleasant. They always fit you in (table of 2) last minute, and time the courses perfectly - not too long and not rushed. Very professional restaurant.

We didn't choose Bellocale at first thinking it was a traditional Italian fare. We happened to walk by so perused the menu which turned out tobe interesting. A nice gentleman came to answer any questions and we ended up making a rez for that evening. I assumed he was the owner. We started with a daily special, yellow tail carpacchio... More

My wife and I quite enjoyed this restaurant. The linguini marinara was good, as well as the other main, barramundi. For desert we had the panacotta, which was really nice. The only thing I could fault was the entrée- bruscetta- where the bread was a bit burnt and tomato which could have been more finely sliced. Other than that, the... More

Greeted by subtle lighting, scenic wall pictures, soft background music and an attentive host all added to its ambience. Primo was Arancini in a fine, delicate Lattina, Rome spaghetti sauce my mamma made on special occasions. The Funghi entree was a winner for my mushroom connoisseur. Secondi was a flavour filled creamy chilli Pappardelle Bugs and a light Veal Scallopine... More

We are frequent visitors to Cairns and often eat at a rival Italian restaurant. We were recommended this restaurant by a friend and were not disappointed. We arrived before the dinner meal service started but they were happy to cook us a garlic bread to tide our young son over until we could order our meals, which we were extremely... More

This is the second time we have dined here, and it was just as good as the first. Nice food selection and great wine selection. Love that I can get a quality Chianti at a very reasonable price. I think the meals are priced perfectly and very tasty. Great option if your want to have a few different things as... More
