Having highly rated the Townsville Fasta Pasta, when we found out La Porchetta in Cairns had closed we defaulted straight to Fasta Pasta. We weren't disappointed. Great feed, good price and excellent service. For a good honest feed, don't hesitate.

I seriously don't understand the good feedback here. The food tastes awful. The service is ok, but charging 20$ for this kind of low quality food is outrageous.

Ate there a couple of times during our stay in Cairns. A very popular and busy restaurant. Meals were decent size portions, freshly cooked, tasty and reasonably priced. Service was excellent

Great value with the portion offered ! cant finish the whole dish by myself. Tastes good and will definitely go again. Great thing is that you can add different ingredients into your dishes to make your own pasta / pizza !

Arrived in Cairns at around 7pm and wanted to get a quick dinner. Well if you want a quick meal this is the place to go. Talk about fast food. My excuse for a lasagna arrived about two minuets after ordering, obviously just having been blasted in a microwave by someone pretending to be a chef in the kitchen. The... More

Food was undercookes as it was the night of the Cairns festival and they were rushing to get food out. They need to ensure food it properly cooked before serving. The sauces had a good flavour.

Five of us had enjoyed a long day out on the reef and didn't feel like going home to cook so on the spur of the moment, we called in to Fasta Pasta for dinner. Our visitors from the USA seriously appreciated the lovely airconditioned comfort and we were there at opening time so the restaurant was not too busy... More
