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.

5 of us went for dinner on a Monday night. Very busy and young staff so a little slow. Everyone was very happy with our food. I did have to chase them up for our mains but they gave us a free drink and the mains came out straight after. The gnocchi was so delicious. A shame it was too... More

We had a delicious earlier dinner at L'Unico. Had noted how busy this restaurant always was, so decided to give it a go and was not disappointed. Good menu selection. Lovely atmosphere. Attentive and professional staff. Highly recommended.

Had dinner on Saturday night and it was packed which made it pretty noisy. Food was good especially the garlic bread and Garlic Prawn pasta which were the standouts Prices reasonable compared to other options and the service was good

We loved listening to the waves while enjoying our dinner. Good fish specials - we loved the mussels. Our kids loved the pizza and the spaghetti bolognese.

Food is priced well for the quality you get, and the restaurant is beautifully presented. I have been a couple of times with my mother she has enjoyed it greatly (usually a very fussy lady!). The staff are efficient and lovely. Outdoor seating on the balcony is the best.

We stopped in Trinity Beach for lunch on our way to Mossman Gorge. I used Tripadvisor to find a restaurant and our family of four decided upon L'Unico Trattoria. I am very glad! We sat out on the balcony of their beautiful restaurant which had great protection from the sun and light breeze outside but allowed an expansive view of... More

Excellent food and outlook. Had dinner here twice during our 5 day stay in trinity. Meals and wine well priced, great quality and quantities; and pretty good service for a beach side restaurant.

L'Unico is another gem of TB. The look and feel of the place is exotic and fun, whether you are eating or just looking for a drink. The service is friendly and relaxed, and the food is surprisingly good for a sleepy coastal hollow like TB. For a romantic evening, ask for a verandah table overlooking the Esplanade. With a... More
