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.

Went to celebrate a close friends birthday New to the place I was so excited took my daughters along and the menu catered for both of them excellently. Torn between dishes I picked the Penne pasta and was not disappointed at all even my young one indulged in it whilst digging into her own kids calamari dish. The only downside... More

Thank you Miriam, Most people wouldn't be so gracious if their entrees were forgotten. When you say entrees, did you mean breads or entrees proper. I ask this because we have a system without going into detail, with breads that can sometimes cause confusion with guests. Love your review as you can still see the positive in your dining experience... More

So glad to read Lunico is still popular and quirky. To this day Lunico holds great memories as my favorite ever place to have worked. I am catching up with Jane in London in September and then going to Geoges wedding in Munich. - Kbear 1996-97

Id been to L'Unico before and had a very nice lunch there. We dined for a birthday dinner and we had a few hiccups with service (drink orders taking a very long time and entrees being forgotten). The owner/manager (?) was very apologetic though. The food was really great, and generous servings. A nice menu variety, and not just the... More
