We went for lunch on a Friday and were the only ones there, stylish decor, attentive service, interesting and varied menu. I had parpadelle bugs in a cream sauce and they were fantastic, hubby had a pepper steak and said it was great. The prices seem reasonable for the quality of the food. Can't wait to go back

Bellocale is a fantastic, stylish restaurant that could easily fit into the scenery of any great dining precinct of Australia. The unpretentious fit-out serves to complement the amazing food and ideal service. It should be top of the list for anyone visiting and a regular for locals.

We like Cairns to start with, and this little Italian restaurant caught our attention with its unique style and its quiet, cozy ambiance. We went there for Sophie's birthday and were really happy with our experience. The food was great, the friendly staff explained well what was on the menu, and the wine was succulent! Definitely recommend! Great time!

Ordered the seafood cannelloni in black pasta special. Price wasn't on the board. Got two little tubes and it cost $38! Couldn't find one single bit of seafood, it was all cheese. Not the best of places.

Small and intimate, great service, good food and it was full, showing that it is popular with locals and tourists alike. It was also within walking distance of our hotel.

Visited recently with friends for a birthday, so we were looking for a good meal and time to catchup. To start the staff were overly attentive, we had to ask two waiters to give us more time to order, in the end we felt very rushed. I choose the 'special of the day' entree as a main meal, although i... More

Dinner for two. The service was fantastic, as were the meals. Atmosphere was ok, without being great. Value also was a little so so. Overall I enjoyed the experience and would recommend it to others who enjoy Italian food. I would rate it slightly better than Bel Paese, a close competitor. Not so great for those on a tight budget.

The entre' was calamari and a tad over cooked. When the main came out we asked the girl for another glass of wine and the... More

WOW! That is my first word about this restaurant. This is the first time we have been here (we have been locals for 20 years), my wife and myself booked this place for our Valentines Day Dinner, despite being a set menu (most restaurants would be the same for this day) but still had a choice of 3 different entree,...
