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.

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
