Visit Fasta pasta once if not twice a month either for take away or dine in. Service is always great and Food is brought out very fast even when the restaurant is crazy busy. food tastes great every single time. If you are wanting a nice easy lunch or dinner this is the place to go.

Quick friendly service after a tiring day. Restaurant clean and tidy and room to move. Staff offered us a table to sit and wait even though we were having takeaway. Parking was relatively easy at 6pm on a Friday night. Just a tad expensive these days

This restaurant is a good value, quick service, family-friendly restaurant, well supported by locals with appeal to tourists as well. Val (the owner) was missed tonight, as staff had to cope with an extremely busy workload. The big groups made it noisy but our meals still came promptly. Serves are plentiful. Drinks are fairly priced. The advertised lunch specials look... More

We always just passed this place for a long time we are in Cairns. We decided to check it out whilst we are staying close by. It turned out to be very good. The pasta marinara and pizza we had ordered were really tasty and tasted real Italian dishes. We even came back another day with some friends. The serving... More

Good reliable "go-to" restaurant in the middle of town. Very quick and well priced, friendly staff with a good selection of beers.

Amazing food at a reasonable price, outstanding service and amazing staff. We went for lunch one day and loved it so much we returned for dinner the next night. Highly recommended! Has lots of variety on the menu, not just pasta, there's something for everyone!

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
