Pretty good place

Went last night for dinner. As soon as we entered, we were greeted by smiling and pleasant staff. We were seated straight away.

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.

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.

This is a very popular restaurant offering a great range of pasta and other foods. The service is amazing and the wait staff are to be congratulated. I don't know if I have had better wait staff in any restaurant I have ever been to.

The night was very busy being mothers day which we didn't mind, however, 2 of the meals out of 4 that we got were cold and we could tell that they had been sitting there for some time before being brought out. The pasta was not the best considering it is a pasta place, however, it is very ceap and... More

Not much to say about Fasta Pasta. I asked for the cannelloni which they didn't have and so I got the spinach and ricotta ravioli. It was smothered in cream and a tiny smudge of pasta sauce across the top. My mother and brothers salads had mushy tomatoes in the salad and a weird taste to the pork belly. One... More

The owner is an international traveler so understands different cultures and will pretty much make you what you want. For instance what we call Alfredo sauce is Monte Carlo sauce there. Nice quick in and out. The potions are so big I suggest eating half and then have them pack the remainder for your lunch the next day.
