“Has potential”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

We walked around town one evening, looking to satisfy an Italian craving. We finally came across this place and it was moderately busy. They sat us down quickly enough but then it seemed very hard to get there attention afterwards (this was true even when we were trying to pay our bill). Luckily, their food was good (Steak and lasgne). If the service had been better, then I would've given this place a 4.

“Just as great as it was three years ago”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

I first had some excellent dinners at La Fettuccina three years ago and I found it was just as good this time around :) One of the best Pasta Carbonaras ever and a friendly owner and great staff. Affordable and charming. A hundred times better than next door restaurant Ochre, which is overrated, overpriced and has lousy food.

“Delicious meals, friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014 via mobile

Enjoyed delicious meals on New Year's Eve. Staff were very friendly and meals we're prepared in a reasonable time for how busy the evening was. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Cairns. Second to none.

“Highly recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

Had dinner here on New Years Eve prior to watching the fireworks on the Esplanade. Service was quick & efficient, staff very friendly and the food was superb! Have been here several times with both family and friends & I would highly recommend this restaurant if you are dining out in Cairns.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

Very authentic, tasty, delicious food. The best we have tasted by far! Excellent service, lovely looking restaurant and the boss is more than willing to exchange recipes. Very highly recommended for good food, excellent service and value for money. A definite must if in Cairns
