Description: L’Unico Trattoria started life as a small BYO in 1994. Set in an Idyllic location on the waterfront at Trinity Beach about 20km north of Cairns, the word soon spread, and L’Unico quickly became a regular dining spot for tourists and locals alike.In 1997, after three years at Trinity Beach we moved just 400 metres further along the beachfront to take advantage of even better ocean views and new, larger premises complete with wood-fired pizza oven and cocktail bar.

With no reservation we were seated with no dramas, the food was pretty good although the service was a little cumbersome, the view made up for it :)

We dined on a Wednesday and they were super busy. Our waitress was run off her feet but she was still very helpful. All the pizzas and pastas are available in a gluten free version which is great. There is no air-conditioning at all so if you feel the heat make sure you request seating under a fan when you... More

My husband and I had previously visited this restaurant in 2010. Ever since we have been eager to get back there. In January this year we did so. Am pleased to say that the food is still as good. My husband had the spaghetti marinara and I had the spaghetti gamberi. The fresh seafood in both of our dishes was... More

Restaurant was reasonably busy even though not peak tourist season, Wait staff were very helpful, chef willing to adjust one meal to deal with a particular food intolerance. We had a variety of dishes and they we all good. Good gluten free... More

The environment was excellent although the staff were very busy and we had to wave them down rather than them coming to check on us. The food is fantastic and the range is diverse the only thing would be to avoid the really hectic times like Friday and Saturday nights. I have had brunch there before and it was beautiful.

I booked Christmas lunch here and would not return. The restaurant was overbooked, only 4 waiters on and they were running between tables they were so busy. It took my waiter 30 minutes to realise she hadn't taken my order. As I was the only customer eating alone on Christmas Day I don't know how she could have missed me.... More

Great location but slow service - although fairly busy the place did not look full. Drinks took so long to come that our food arrived before our drinks! Nothing complicated about beer, soda and water.... Food was good but the service was slow all night. Culminated in us asking for the bill twice and eventually having to get up to... More

We stopped to have lunch in that restaurant because of the view. The food was quite good but unfortunately the meal was ruined by a rude manager. We ordered some soft drinks but unfortunately the drink was flat. The manager offered us to give us a new drink. When we paid we were charged for the flat drink. The manager... More

This restaurant was the one of the best I've ever eaten in. I had the bolognese and the margarita pizza and it was fantastic. The tomato sauce was the best tomato sauce I have ever had in my life! This place exceeded all of my standards. Everyone was so nice, the food was quick and everything was really good enjoyable.
