We spoke to the chef at Bellocale after enjoying a superb meal there and he commented that a sure sign of this restaurant's success is the fact that it has managed to stay open and flourish in Cairns! The restaurant trade can be very fickle in Cairns and during our 20 years here we've seen many restaurants come and go:... More

Nice little place tucked away on Shields St. Excellent menu and selection of specials. Food is fresh and cooked well. Recommended to those that appreciate good Italian and fresh pasta. My only suggestion would be to have a better selection of wines by the glass and to also serve the red wine a little cooler. Overall, the service was excellent... More

Quiet location and enjoyed relaxing at our outside table. Started with the "special" soup which was mussels and leek with cherry tomatoes and fennel and deliciously different. My husband enjoyed his main of veal with mushrooms and vegetables. I opted for bugs with ribbon pasta and rosa sauce (entre size) and it was a more than adequate serving. After resting... More

Lovely restaurant. Friendly and attentive service and the food is superb. Really high quality. There are lots of eating places in Cairns, most of them mediocre, but the meal we ate here was stupendous. Bruschetta, stuffed mushrooms, scallopini al fungi and a chocolate/Cointreau berry foam. Wow! We paid about $125 and thought it worth every cent. Highly recommended

Positive was the food, it was really good and not same old same old you get that other Italian restaurants. The waitressing staff were in-obtrusive, but attentive, they were happy to supply plate, knife etc for the birthday... More

Excellent food and wine list. Believe me, we're fussy. The food is interesting, without being over-worked.

This wasn't our original destination. We had thought we would try the Italian across the road but stupidly didn't think to book in advance and it was full. We wandered until we spotted here and the menu looked lovely. We were spotted very quickly and we asked if they could squeeze us in thinking we would be turned away as... More

My wife and I always share our meals and we found our evening meal here to be very enjoyable. The staff are very friendly, helpful and professional. The meal options are Italian, including mainly pasta etc but with some other good seafood choices. We chose the coral trout special ($40) with a starter of garlic panini bread. This combination proved... More
