Horrendous service and staff who don't care. Look next door or elsewhere completely. Food sucked too, would not recommend to anyone

This is now one of our favourite and regular restaurants. They always know us upon arrival and even remember what our favourite orders are. The team are always accommodating, friendly and efficient. We have never been disappointed and the food is delicious, well worth a visit.

I have been to this restaurant many times and each time the food and service is great. Never had a bad meal yet no matter what I have had from the vast menu. Service is outstanding, staff are friendly and nothing is a bother for them. A must do if you visit Cairns.

We visit La Fettucina when ever we visit Cairns, and this was our first visit with our baby son. We also had a friend's daughter join us for the meal. This particular visit (29/3/14) was the best of all. As usual the service was exceptional and they were very helpful with our minor requests for our son. The food however... More

We went to La Fetticina 27 Jan as a group of four after finding the restaurant on a GPS locator app. A moderately busy night but we only had to wait about 2 minutes to be seated. Service was good at the wait staff attentive. It was nice to have a sit down meal where we were actually waited one.... More

Visited La Fettuccina for dinner with 3 others. The service was good as usual. We ordered the bruschetta to share which was good. I ordered the fettuccine alla marinara and absolutely loved it. The only issue I had was there were a couple of "gritty bits" which could have been due to the mussels in the pasta. The flavour was... More

We walked around town one evening, looking to satisfy an Italian craving. We finally came across this place and it was moderately busy. They sat us down quickly enough but then it seemed very hard to get there attention afterwards (this was true even when we were trying to pay our bill). Luckily, their food was good (Steak and lasgne).... More

I first had some excellent dinners at La Fettuccina three years ago and I found it was just as good this time around :) One of the best Pasta Carbonaras ever and a friendly owner and great staff. Affordable and charming. A hundred times better than next door restaurant Ochre, which is overrated, overpriced and has lousy food.

Enjoyed delicious meals on New Year's Eve. Staff were very friendly and meals we're prepared in a reasonable time for how busy the evening was. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Cairns. Second to none.
