The best Italian in Cairns!

Great staff, service, food and atmosphere. Takes you back to Italy! I would say the best Italian food in Cairns - don't miss out.

Things don't taste fresh. Bruschetta that tasted like mexican salsa slapped on top of soggy bread. A "seafood" fish that had scallops shrimp and extra squid ... Super slow service. Tortellini was alright. Pass

I had pasta with funghi and pasta with prawn. They were pathetic. Garlic bread was good though. I would not pay this much for a mediocre pasta. Overall I feel the restaurant is overpriced for the quality of food that is served.

My family and I came here for my birthday on March 9th, every dish was to die for. I had a creamy ravioli with chicken, shallots and avocado, which melted in my mouth. The lamb cutlets were well salted with seasoned potatoes that were done splendidly. Would highly recommend this restaurant if you're looking for a reasonably priced, fresh Italian... More

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
