It's a nice feeling when restaurant, owners are open minded and like to take care of you, no matter what your eating preference is. I could be classed as a fussy eating but it's myself who always has to comprised at most restaurants I go to. I've some terrible experiences at other place where the wait staff have rolled their...

Booked dinner at Bellocale Shield St for special occasion with my wife based on reviews I had seen. We weren't disappointed. The staff were attentive, good wine list and menus. Being Italian "Seafood" restaurant we started with oysters, and for main course its was bugs and a seafood linguine. All were excellent and good size servings. Bit pricey for Cairns... More

Based on previous great reviews i dined there with high expectations. Service is really good, however i was not very pleased with what i ordered, creamy soup, and seafood pasta, extremely heavy.

Always an excellent evening with great food, service and atmosphere. Our visits to Cairns are not complete without having at least one meal at Bellocale. Our most recent visit was with 6 guests. The staff were attentive, meals arrived in a timely manner and our guests enjoyed both the food and the evening. Thankyou David and your staff.

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.
