Italian Restaurant that has been trading in Cairns for years. Dinners are good and flavoursome but appear a bit bland on the plate. Eye Fillet with green pasta? Must be traditional. :) It's a busy place and the staff are in a hurry.

We've been here 3 times so far. Dinner for 2 first, dinner for 8 second and tonight work function for 33 for third. Superb food and service each time. Will definitely go again and highly recommended.

I ordered the four cheese gnocchi and it was absolutely stunning. Gnocchis tasted as though they were made to order, soft little pillows that melted in the mouth. Service was also excellent and very efficient.

This is my friend's favourite local restaurant, so when I visited her, this is where we went for dinner on my first night in Cairns. The pasta is fantastic. I have Carbonara at every Italian restaurant I visit and this rates as one of the best I've eaten. And the small serving was big enough. The large is huge. The... More

I used to frequent this "hole in the wall" in the early 90's; it was one of the best restaurants in Cairns in those days. After an absence of 20 years (long story) I took my 2 teenage daughters there for dinner. We'd made a booking and sat inside, as the al fresco was a bit breezy for us locals,... More

Having no booking, we enjoyed a impromptu dinner at la fettucina. Had thought they would serve pizza however they don't. The pasta and fettuccine (as the name suggests) was authentic and tasty, photos include the carbonara and the one with mushrooms. Service was quick and staff were efficient and friendly. There were families and bigger groups but also plenty of... More

A great little restaurant away from the hustle of the Esplanade that serves fantastic food. Popular with locals as well as the occasional tourist that finds it. It's a good idea to reserve a table, especially Friday evening and at the weekend otherwise you could be waiting a while for a table. We take all our visitors there and haven't... More

The food was to die for....the pasta sooooo fresh, had to make the yummy sounds while eating. A small but very good wine list. The staff were great, happy and attentive. This restaurant has been here for about 30years. Great to see a business that is still as good now as it was when I first when there over 20yrs... More
