Our scallop appetizer was amazing. The pasta dishes excellent with perfectly cooked pasta. Great flavors. I was very excited about the dessert which was a strawberry Cointreau crepe. It was a complete flop. The crepe was cold and tough. Probably made yesterday. How hard is it to make a fresh crepe. Or atleast warm it up. Sadly this really disappointed.... More

It's over 2 years since my last review of this restaurant which we enjoyed at the time. We returned there last night with visitors from Sydney who were paying and asked us to choose. We felt after our last experience that La Fetticcina would offer quality, flavoursome, home style cooking that would suit a mixed group with good service. I... More

I ordered the special which was slow cooked osso bucco. It was tender but dry. It was quite ordinary. Also had the anti pasto for entree. That was slightly better.

If you are in Cairns and want to avoid the standard selection of backpacker spots then head to this delicious Italian. Traditional menu which is executed really really well. Excellent wine selection as well. Service was also to a very high standard. Me and my girlfriend strongly recommend it as it was our best meal out of our 9 day... More

We have been coming to this restaurant every time we visit cairns and it is still one of the best in cairns. If you are after a huge plate of soggy pasta smothered in cheese then dont come here, have tried many of the dishes and none have dissapointed, easily as good as anything in lygon st melbourne can offer....

We felt like an Italian dinner and googled one in the city of cairns and found La Fettuccina just off the main road so we thought why not. We were greeted by a lovely girl to take us to a table where she promptly bought us the menu and beverage list. We sat and ordered, pesto for entree,couple of glasses... More

We were not disappointed, I don't know why we... More

10 pieces of ravioli for $22.5….. You got to be kidding me!!! The chicken dish was also very small for the price and tasted like it’s been in the fridge too long. they didnt care i was unhappy that each pc of ravioli cost $2.25. just payed the bill and had to find more food somewhere else.

Food was tasty and menu has all the favourites. Large portion is a good size meal without starters. A little tight between other restaurants so would ask for upstairs inside.
