Always a Favourite

Love this place. Have been dining here since I moved to cairns in 2000. Family love it and it's our regular birthday dinner choice. Delicious pasta and generous portions. Friendly service and outdoor dining.

We went to La Fettuccina this weekend and the food as great. We all had seafood that was fresh, simply prepared and delicious. The staff were friendly and helpful and prices reasonable. We chose to eat inside as it was cooler but perhaps outside may be better as it was very noisy.

This is the second year in a row that we have chosen to eat at La Fettuccina in Cairns before going on to fireworks at the Esplanade. We are frequent visitors and are never disappointed. It was a very, very hot and humid evening for New Years Eve and we were happy to be placed in a position outside that... More

We were sent here by our hotel concierge when I asked him for a dinner recommendation for a Saturday night. We had just finished a full day out on the Great Barrier Reef and wanted to recharge with some pasta. It was just a few blocks walk from our hotel. We almost missed this small spot sandwiched between two other... More

Tandpasta: Bruschetta had too little taste, lacking basil. Foccacia with Olive tapanade and pesto was fine, but The bread cloud have been toasted more. Main course, Penne Al Arrabiata was al dente, spicy and accompanied by fresh parmesan cheese. The wine (shiraz) was served too hot, but became must better after being put on ice. The service was good.

We finally got lucky with la fettucina being our first good meal in cairns. All of the dishes were so fresh and delicious. The garlic bread was buttery and soft and the pastas- you can tell we're homemade. If you're in the mood for Italian- I don't think there's a better place to go in cairns! Lovely atmosphere and great... More

I love this place, I have eaten here over 20 times in the last couple of years after being taken there by a local while in Cairns for work. I now go every time and I have yet to eat something I don't like. I especially recommend the pork medallions and the pollo al limone. Friendly service and fast kitchen... More

If you like traditional, fresh Italian food, you can beat this place. We went as part of a group of 50 or so people, and all the food was beautifully presented, incredibly fresh, and, best of all, typically, honestly Italian! Grazie.
