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.

L'Unico was our favourite place in Trinity Beach (actually, in the Northern Beaches). The food is delicious - Pizzas are real Italian style, Risotto, Cannelloni, Salads, Bruschetta and also the Mussels (yes, we have tried all of it) are just unbeatable.

Quick and friendly service, plenty of pizza and a beachfront view made this a great place for our group of 14. The kids were served quickly and had plenty to eat, making it a relaxing end to a big day.

We recently stayed in Trinity Beach and came to L'Unico's twice, first for a cocktail and some bruchetta and that was so good that we came back the 2nd night for dinner. The scallops are to die for. I am not a seafood fan but I would eat these three times a day. I then had the duck...YUM!

Gordon the owner, is just a cracker of a bloke, very good with kids too. Nothing's a trouble, but sadly the food was a bit hit & miss. I... More
