Great food and great service even on a busy Saturday night. My Amatriciana was amongst the best I've had for quite a while and my wife's risotto was rich but maybe just a little heavy. Recommended for a good night out.

One of the best all round restaurants in Cairns, who take pride in their service and food. They always make you feel welcome, and ensure we as customers enjoy the experience. Food is absolutely amazing!!!

Make a booking, this place was packed on a Tuesday night! I had dinner with friends and it was fantastic! We had the bruschetta to share for entree. Bruschetta is a hard one to make look good since it's just chopped tomato on some bread, and it looked ok at La Fettuccina, but it tasted fantastic! The quality of the... More

Just turned 25 years..and as good as ever. Prime choice for all good things Italian. Scallops were so good the other Friday, we were back on the Saturday. Then to double the pleasure afterwards, landed next door at McGintys for after dinner drinks.

I had chilli prawn pasta which was a generous portion and tasted fantastic. Great for families, couples and groups. Located in town close to pubs and a short... More

This is quite small with most dining outdoors but we walked past 3 nights and noticed it had a bigger crowd than most so dined there on our last night. Managed to get the last table at 7PM. You take the last table you know it will take awhile but ordered some bread and wine and enjoyed the ambience. Our... More

La Fettucccina is my all time favourite restaurant in Cairns. Johnny is an excellent host, and the food is always perfectly cooked and presented; and priced to suit most budgets. Do not walk past this one in Spence St. Brilliant as always

Discovered this just by walking past it, and decided to come back later in the evening for dinner. I'm glad we didn't get there any later than 7pm, as it was nearly packed out by that time and was consistently busy throughout the evening. Unfortunately this made the service a tiny bit slow, but the staff were so lovely and... More

I ate calamari and ravioli here. Both were good, but I really loved the calamari. It was fresh and delicious. This was the best place I ate near Esplanade.
