I went here for an easy dinner on our recent visit to Cairns with my husband and three children. The meals were huge, but the risotto I ordered was way overcooked and was like baby food consistency. My daughter had a fettucine and the pasta was undercooked and still hard. We also had a pizza, which was ok, but very... More

Ordered spaghetti bolognese for the kids, was absolutely Inedible. Smelled like warmed up pet food, simply disgusting. Will never go back, don't waste your money

Ate there recently. Sat outside where we were largey ignored by the staff. The guy behind the counter taking the orders was very good though. The pasta in the meals didn't seem to be fully cooked which was a disappointment.

We ate here twice because the atmosphere, service and price was very good. Great selection of pasta's and pizza's and my kids loved it. Carafe of house wine was very palatable and reasonably priced. The manager (Val La Vista) was a very bubbly and jovial host. Made a point on both occasions we dined there of coming over for a... More

We were told by two girls in our dorm about this place and although we was not backpacking for any great length of time we did go round there for lunch one day - it was fresh italian food and everyone had cleared their plate. They also do lovely icecream.

Dinner with about 15 friends , you would think we might be waiting a while to get a feed, especially when the opposite table had the same amount of guests. Not to be outdone , we ordered first. Well we got our meals before everyone else had made their minds up ! The meals were large , you couldn't want... More

I have been to a Fasta Pasta in Melbourne and Adelaide and enjoyed those, so it was nice to find one here in Cairns. The portions are HUGE for the price and the food is decent. The company was great and the manager very friendly. As to some of the other reviews that mentioned issues -- it seems as if... More
