I would not recommend this place especially for family. This was our second trip - except this time we took family and friends from overseas. The waitress was very rude and couldn't smile and the Chef refused to cook the same meal I ate their 2 weeks prior. He refused to a neutral review of this restaurant I had put... More

If your looking for superb quality Italian food in Cairns La Fettucina is certainly the place to be. Fresh ingredients, the right side servings, a colourful and pleasant setting makes for great value for money. Not cheap, but fairly priced. Enjoy!!

I absolutely loved my trip to La Fettuccina and if I ever happened to be in Cairns again would head straight back. I was recommended this restaurant by a friend whose fiancé used to work here. The staff were very friendly, the menu is huge and very good value. I started with a bread plate which had 3 accompanying dips... More

We enjoyed our meal at La Fettuccina. The staff were friendly, welcomed us and quickly had us seated with menus and cold water. The waitress helped us to understand the difference between their small and large mains. We both chose pasta - marinara and pescatori, together with a green salad. The marinara was very good; the pescatori was ok. We... More

The place has 'street appeal'- there is nice interior decoration with ground floor as well as mezzanine seating and pleasant outdoor seating (when the weather is good). The service was very good. We were served by three different staff who were all friendly and helpful. The food, however, was disappointing. We aren't big fans of strong garlic and onion. The... More

Had a couple of pasta dishes and the garlic bread. Really good. The simple homemade pasta sets it apart from most other Italian style resturants.

As a local, I love this place. It's authentic Italian food, made from the heart. Definitely the only place to have Italian in Cairns.

There is nothing Little about this little gem of a restaurant the service and staff cater for the biggest of hungers in the only way they know how, with meals fit for a King. Hands down best pasta in Cairns. It's the kind of place you want to go back to time after time no matter what your craving.
