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.

We visited here for meals and drinks several times. They serve a range of meals from pizzas to grilled barramundi (sensational). They cater well for gluten free eating, providing both gluten free pasta and pizza. The desserts were amazing! Try the mud cake or tiramisu! The view is great, as is the atmosphere. The service was great some visits and... More

This is a very busy restaurant and highly recommend that you book. Ate here twice while on holidays in Trinity Beach. Had mussels first time and wasn't disappointed, tried pizza next and it was just as good. Try and get table outside near the street as inside is very noisy. Staff are very friendly and service was prompt.

It was busy but this didn’t prevent us receiving attentive, prompt service from the friendly staff. The location is good as we sat on the... More

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
