Cairns waterfront dining is hosting the italian restaurant, Family envoiroment business, Hand-streched pizza using natural ingredients to enhance the flavours, Homemade gnocchi and Pasta, and also the most stunning seafood platter of Cairns. The dishes are Created by the Italian chef Vitalia Zanda with over 20 years experience.
Couldn’t be dissatisfied in any way ! Both our steak and pasta was cooked to perfection! Our side dishes were absolutely amazing, I even watched my husband devour and enjoy vegetables he doesn’t usually like or eat
On our 16th wedding anniversary we dropped in to Vitalia’s for the first time. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable and accomodating. From the perfect choice of wine, to the insanely yummy meals, ‘off it’s head’ (off the chart) tiramisu, liqueurs and lovely atmosphere, to the...tiny bill at the end. This is our new favourite restaurant. Can’t wait to return... We will make the journey from the Northern Beaches again for the whole experience.More
Unfortunately we did not enjoy our meal at this restaurant despite having high expectations. It seems just for tourists now even though we used to really like the food at the other location. The menu has changed and it now seems to be a mix...of different Italian regions that doesn’t seem to work together. It’s ok but we eat and cook a lot of Italian food - our family is Italian - and didn’t find what we had - 4 cheese pizza and one of the house specialities - Fregola Sarda Vitalia, very special at all. The pasta was rubbery, the sauce tasted as if made with tinned produce and the cheese pizza smelled and tasted as if laced with garlic. Not at all as you would get in Italy. I hope they bring back the original chef and a more authentic menu.More
I'm Italian and I can confirm that Vitalia's is the best Italian restaurant in Cairns,
Staff very friendly and excellent food!
I loved gnocchi di zucca! they are amazing,an explosion of taste in the mouth.
Read all the reviews and we were sold...They did not disappoint. They were really busy but the service and quality of the food stood the test. Great home pasta and the pizza took us back to our holiday around Italy. If you are in Cairns...put this place on your list to visit. Grazie.More
If you want a real Italian experience without taking a flight, book a dinner at Vitalia's Restaurant. All the menu is based on real traditional recipes from different part of Italy. Everything was delicious, starting from the entrèes to the dessert (best cannolo in Australia!)...Special mention to the "Fregola sarda", a typical pasta with seafood from my island, Sardinia. When I tried it I just felt like I was back home, in my grandma table. All the flavours were perfectly balanced and brought back so many memories.More
