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.

Ate here a number of times. Very friendly and attentive staff. Very professional service and could not fault anything. Tried several dishes and all were excellent. Lovely atmosphere. Would highly recommend!

We ventured out to the beaches midweek and after walking along the esplanade settled here. We should have saved our money. Upon entering a more than half empty restaurant we were asked gruffly if we had a reservation we were left waiting whilst the waiter 'searched' for a table. I thought he may almost bring his hand to his forehead... More

Lovely location down by the sea and there are tables outside and also on a deck and inside. Good menu, veal medallions were yummy. Nice desserts, good service, reasonable prices. This is a great restaurant for a good night out.

Have frequented this restaurant for 10 years - my veal was tough and the table my husband had booked was given away - no customer service really.

Based on the reviews on here, we popped in for a coffee & desert, I don't know what was wrong with the staff but we were treated like 2nd class citizens. First we were told although the kitchen was closed they could serve deserts, then when we were given the menus told we could only have a drink, then when... More

Stopped by for a coffee and cake, mid afternoon which was fine when seated, only to be told kitchen is closed when ordering and they will 'check if they could do it', begrudgingly they obliged Tirumisu and date pudding were good but coffee only OK compared to most at Palm Cove. Shouldn't say open if all you can get is... More

The outdoor verandah seating has a great 'Queenslander' feel. The food is generous in serving size and the menu offers a diverse selection of italian favourites. There were three of us for lunch and we ordered Spinach and Ricotta Cannelloni, Garlic Prawns and Mussels in a tomato/chilli sauce. We each also ordered salads - Caesar; Pear,Parmesan and Rocket. All were... More

My partner and I celebrated his birthday tonight at this restaurant and we are extremely impressed! We had a romantic table for two overlooking the esplanade (booked earlier today). I had the chicken dish of the day with a side Mediterranean salad and my partner had the steak with a side dish of green vegetables. The food was flawless and... More

We celebrated our eldest daughters 11th birthday here this evening. The location is perfect and although a taste windy sitting outside it was wasn't cold & we had a great view of the beach. The service was good. The food was lovely and plentiful. A very enjoyable evening.
