The food was excellent and large servings. We found the entree sizes enough for main course... read more

Monday night, all our fav restaurants were closed but an old old fav we'd not visited for some time was open for business and better than ever. Delicious meal, prompt friendly service and affordable.

I love this place The first place I tried gnocchi it's amazing. I could say I've tried most dishes but cannot say there is a favourite dish I love them all. We celebrated the boys birthday here and the banquet they brought out had everybody silent in absolute food heaven. Cannot wait to go again and again

My partner and I were looking forward to a nice evening dessert and wine as we have had great meals here in the past.. When we came in an hour prior to closing the host came across as rude and unwelcoming.. A chef was seen in the kitchen was chucking a towel on the ground and complaining.. This did not... More

This is little restaurant located back off the main stripe is well worth finding. Excellent meals in quantity and quality. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience of sitting at an outdoor location with family and friends on our recent holiday to FNQ. Staff were very friendly, even being able to secure a table for 7 at very short notice on a busy... More

My first time in cairns my boyfriend surprised me with dinner here and I can't rate thus restaurant highly enough. The ambience was soft and romantic and a great place to have a beautiful and authentic Italian meal. My boyfriend had a pasta dish with chilli and said it was cooked to perfection whereas I had the chicken with ham... More

Service was reasonable but the food was very ordinary,I ordered a veal scallopini dish which come with pasta the was very gluey and quite tasteless,meat was in a sauce that tasted of uncooked flour , poor value,a packet of supermarket pasta would have been better very disappointing after reading good reviews on trip advisor.

Meals are reasonably priced and quite delicious. However, a mistake was made with my meal but the staff apologised and quickly provided me with a new one.

What has happened ? . Waitress very efficious and impatient . Not at all friendly to tourists. Food average . Very poor experience . People like us wanting an early dinner were all herded on the edge of pavement together . We are locals and won't be back . Not the Restaraunt that l remember . 22.12.2015 5 pm
