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.

Although the food was OK, this place was let down by the service. It wasn't particularly busy, but the waitress forgot (twice, I had to ask both times) to bring our table water (for the glasses that were already on the table) and also the bottle of wine. We were a table of 7. 2 of us ordered bread, which... More

Great night at L'Unico, with the ladies from our Networking group. The service was very good, & more food than we could eat. Everything was delicious, great wine as well. I will come back with my husband & friends for a social evening. Brilliant location opposite the beach.

We went out for a family dinner for my husbands birthday. It was a very busy night but the service was still good. The food was nice but expensive. Still a good night.

It was ok. We were waiting to be seated and no one noticed us for a while. Wait staff appeared frazzled. We were seated and our order taken immediately without asking about what we would like to drink. Food was good, my husband's marinara portion was huge. I had the grilled seafood platter, I had tp admit, the fish was... More

We never eat in this restaurant but had a few takeaway pizza's which were very tasty. The restaurant was always busy to the point that we were not able to order any takeaway pizzas one night as the wait was 45 mins to 1 hour! But on the couple of occasions we did have the pizzas they were worth the... More

Lunch at L'Unico on a sunny day is always nice. Good food, good attentive service, not crowded and not over the top prices. A restaurant to sit back and relax.
