Food was good but delivery should be better

We ate here with our seven year old grandson. We were all very happy with the quality of the food judging by the empty plates. However timing of delivery of food to our table was not the best: my wife's meal came first, mine was two minutes later and our grandson had to wait a further ten minutes... read more

A group of us have been visiting Cairns annually for a decade, Fasta Pasta became a tradition as the food was excellent. Not this time........gluggy, thick, tasteless pasta was everyone's opinion. Good value as the helpings are huge. Service was disorganiised and offhand. Sadly, we will not return.

The three of us have been visiting Fasta Pasta once a year for the past eight years - it was a must visit. Last Sunday all three meals arrived separately at approximately five minutes apart. All our meals were tasteless, dry and very thick texture pasta. Unfortunately we will not be visiting again!

The food is delicious and very reasonably priced. I was amazed by their great service and it was a very enjoyable meal from the mains to the desserts. I would highly recommend.

Went last night for dinner. As soon as we entered, we were greeted by smiling and pleasant staff. We were seated straight away. This is not table service, you do need to place your order at the counter. Our food was served very quickly and was exceptional. If your in cairns you want fast, brilliant pasta please visit

Eating in Australia can be a bit pricey so I was super excited to find this lovely place! I had a HUGE bowl of ravioli, garlic bread and a glass of wine for $21AUD which was a total steal given how great everything tasted. The restaurant itself is super clean and very welcoming and warm! I would definitely suggest this,... More

Just wrong. Overcooked pasta, too much garlic in the cannelloni ( more than inside the garlic bread ). We order a "iced Tea" and they give us a bottled tea. I can't say anything about the service cause there is not service in there. Sorry but I'm Italian and I'm a cook, this place for me is not good at... More

My wife had pizza and I had chicken ravioli. Both serves were generous and full of flavour. Staff were friendly and appeared happy. The guy taking the orders-probably manager or owner was helpful and happy. Was a Friday night and place was almost full, probably envied by many other café and restaurant operators in Cairns.
