Why was it so busy?

We walked past this restaurant a couple of times during our stay in Cairns. It was always busy which seemed to be a good indication as to the quality of the food. We ordered a very simple meal, I ordered linguine turismo and my husband a pizza. It was possibly the worst pasta dish that I have had... read more

We have been to Fasta Pasta a few times now and found it to be consistently above par. The measure of it is probably shown by the crowd they attract. I recommend it for a good Italian feed when you are in Cairns. Prices are also reasonable.

We walked through many restaurants on shield street and all of them were very busy, we decided to stop at Fasta pasta. We could get a table outside, because... More

Usual Fasta Pasta quality and service, so good all round. It was Christmas time so it was a little nutty, and very noisy. We went there twice during our stay and sat outside on the second visit. Much quieter. Very friendly staff, especially the Christmas Eve staff.

Our visit here was very enjoyable. Lovely pasta that was so cheap for OZ too, we were in heaven. Definitely somewhere to go if you need food quickly but don't want to go to a fast food restaurant. Yum!

We stopped in here to escape the heat and enjoy a bite of lunch. We were immediately greeted, handed menus and invited to choose any place we wanted to sit. Bread and butter were brought to the table right away. You order and pay up at the counter then they bring the food and drinks over to you as things... More

The service was great , but the carbonara pasta was aweful , lve tasted better out of a packet . Lettuce was old in the salad and very stingy was the dressing . Sorry but you need to try Pedro's and get some new ideas .
