This was a return visit so I knew I'd get a good meal

I ordered the Lasagne which arrived at the table piping hot and a very generous serve. There was a dish of grated Parmesan on the table which was great because I didn't have to ask the waitress for some. My son in law ordered an entree of Penne in pink sauce, bacon,chilli, capsicum & onion with a... read more

Excellent service and they had a divine gluten free penne which can have any sauce added. The wheat eaters also enjoyed their flavour some meals. About $20 per plate

I was at La Fett last night again, and had a wonderful evening with family and friends. Breads were shared as an entrée,with the garlic bread the freshest most soft I've ever had.The Mare Monti,Pork,Veal and pasta dishes were all loved by our group. As always spot on, thanks to Johnny,Andrea and staff.

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
