If you expect to be fawned over, this is not for you. If you like Latino pasta and dolmio sauce, this is not for you. But if you like authentic, not over seasoned fresh made pasta and simple Italian food and don't mind off hand Italian attitude, this is a great place to eat. The servings are not huge but... More

Whilst in Cairns recently, we went to this restaurant which was right next door to the Pullman Hotel where we were staying. It looked good inside and out, at 5:30pm was reasonably deserted. However, when we told the female maitre' de we didn't have a reservation i got the impression and should have left then. After some signing and not... More

This is perhaps the best Italian availabe in Cairns. The atmosphere is very up market and the service excellent. If you are hankering for pasta, go no further. Also try the potato pizza as a group starter, it is unusal but very nice.

Recently I had the delightfull pleasure of having a meal at Piccolo Cucina for the first time. It will certainly NOT be my last time. The food was exceptional, the service and staff great, the atmosphere unique and I found the menu to be extremely extensive. I did ask for one change to be made to my main meal and... More

Food is so delicious here! Decent prices and good quality food. Good wine selection however I think the glass I had might have been off as it was quite bitter/sour. Staff are hot and cold, sometimes they are spot on and very friendly, and sometimes you can see they've had a hard day.

Recently had a work lunch at this lovely restaurant - the choice on the menu was extensive and the daily specials sounded delicious, and they were. I had the calamari (a long time fave) and my work mates had the specials - we were not disappointed. Service excellent and ambiance was lovely - highly recommend.

I sat outside on the balcony, which was lovely, and ordered a reasonably-prices glass of moscato. The service was good, very fast. My meal - chicken parmigiana - also came out very quickly, too quickly for my liking. It cost me $31 and looked as though it should've only been $18-$20. Tasted that way too.
