Best Italian in Townsville

I do not understand why this is down the bottom. This is the best Italian I have had in Australia! It's absolutely delicious and I come here regularly. The prices are good and the restaurant is very relaxed and chilled. I wish they had table service for your drinks though ;)

Townsville has heaps of pizza choices, this place makes the best pizza. The topping is so thick and high quality, normally we eat two pizza between three adults, we couldnt eat one pizza it was so filling and totally yummy. Definitely worth waiting for, the pasta is super and the folded pizza - calzone is very good, but I prefer... More

Okay so I haven't tried everything here but holy crap the pasta is epic. The gnocchi is probably some of the best I have ever had and I have been to Italy. It's a small place but you go out for food right. I also love how it's so old school and also really cheap. Massive feeds too.

We've been going to La Cucina for years with never a disappointment. As a pizza fanatic, I have to say La Cucina's are amongst the best I've ever had anywhere! And the spinach and ricotta cannelloni is and absolute delight. The venue is a bit small and can unexpectedly get very busy, so it's a good idea to phone ahead... More

The pizza and pasta are great though on a busy night a bit of a wait can occur.

I live close to La Cucina and eat at this restaurant on a regular basis. The venuw itself is quite small with only a few tables which means your food comes out quicker than normal. The food itself is exceptional which is why I flet compelled to write this review. The pizzas are some of the best I've had in... More
