We stayed in a hotel in the cbd and could not find any other restaurant to provide a take away on Saturday night within 10 minutes. The food was fresh and delicious and my children loved it. The restaurant was packed out and I was still able to get my take away order within 15 minutes. The value for money... More

This is the worst example of the us of the word food. I ordered a pizza, knowingly far from authentic but I had to eat something. Absolutely disgusting, not only this place has no knowledge of Italian cuisine, it has no knowledge of cuisine. I tasted the uncooked base for 3 days.

I had a meat feast pizza here. It wasn't horrible but it wasn't that tasty and the meat didn't taste of the highest quality... Especially the meatballs.

Quick service, good value and pretty tasty food at fasta pasta, which is a chain in Australia. Enjoyed it with the kids. Located a short walk from Cairns central mall.

Very good food, with very quick service and friendly staff. The food isn't the flashiest in town, but if you are after something the whole family will eat, than this is the place for you. Not just pasta and pizza but steaks, chicken and fish meals are also available. Not badly priced either.
