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.

Bruscheta was basic. Chicken and veggies were really nice. Food was ordered served and.cleared quickly but they took a.while to notice.you, even when.you called out. Not bad, but nothing.special.

We ordered seafood marinara last night and couldn't finish it because it was over fishy in smell and flavour The basil pinenut pasta meal was certainly much better Had antipaso which tasted pretty good but very small serving compared to any other Italian restaurant we are acustomed to . Unfortunately very disappointed overall

This one was on the recommendation of both my brother and sister and what can I say? they got it totally right. One of the best Italian restaurants I have eaten in - service was great and only matched by the food - well done.

If you want authentic Italian food and plenty of it, go no further. Delicious food, great service and value for money. Great spot,to sit and watch the world go by as you dine on fine cuisine packed full of flavour. The service we received was first rate and the food arrived hot and smelt fantastic, mouth watering.

Having arrived in Cairns from Port Douglas, via Atherton and Kuranda, we needed a good value Italian meal without too much fuss. A local shopkeeper recommended this restaurant and it was a good find. Very busy, as one would expect, good "home cooked" pasta, we were happy. I enjoyed an entrée of lasagne and my husband had a nice fettuccine... More

We went there last Saturday night, the 2nd of August for our daughter's birthday.The food was excellent and because I couldn't eat a particular food in the sauce, the owner said the sauces were made fresh and could be made to my liking. The staff were warm and friendly. We really enjoyed it, a perfect evening.

On hearing great reviews,decided to give it a shot.The owner/manager was pushy,quite rude and very bossy to his staff,to which they were doing the best they could and were clearly embarressed,which was very uncomfortable.The restaurant was squashy and a bit grubby and outdated..The meals were pricey,but enjoyable..Probably wouldnt go back..

Had a good night there with a big bunch of friends. It is always difficult to judge a restaurant in such circumstances, but they performed admirably. The staff were very attentive to all the kids. Their knowledge of Italian wines was great.

Visited this restaurant for the first time yesterday (Thursday night) and was pleasantly surprised. My friend and I had no booking but found a table for two immediately. Our two main meals came within 10 minutes and the taste was phenomenal. Tried the Spaghetti Mare E Monti - The sea and the mountains – a sautée of prawns, mushrooms, shallots,... More
