We are tourists and ate at Bella Baci on 30/9/14. We had eaten here previously in 2009 but it was nothing like we remembered. We had steak and a sausage pasta and they were not memorable. Staff were very uninspiring and not very friendly. Value for money was okay.We didn't take any photos and couldnt wait to leave. There was... More

Not impressed whatsoever. Waitresses were lack lustre and looked confused. 3 different waitresses approaching us and asking us the same thing one after the other. Ordered the seafood risotto. Dish was overloaded with chorizo sausage and seafood was far and few between. Found myself crunching on tiny pieces of broken mussel shell several times. Wouldnt go back.

Food was pretty good, nothing special. Got the orders wrong in regards to a couple of things. Eg rice and bread served when asked for none, steaks cooked less than asked for. Meals again were barely warm. Maybe it's a Palm Cove thing? Staff were lovely. Again, wouldn't return.

We are locals. My wife Cynthia and I have been going to BB for quite sometime now mainly for the crumbed oysters for both, duck confit for me(to die for!) and fish or the day or barramundi for Cynthia. The owners Sam and Chris(lady) are one of the most wonderful hosts. They are an example of what service with a... More

Had dinner with my wife and 10yo fussy daughter. We shared the main prawn as an entree which was delicious while my daughter had the kids fish and chips (which she loved). Mains were yummy too. Very satisfied - friendly service and great value. Will definitely be back.

Earlier this month we had the pleasure of dining at Bella Baci for our small wedding reception. From the moment we met Christine & Sam (owners), we knew we had selected the right restaurant. Nothing was an issue, and was made easy to plan from Victoria. The service from all staff on the night was very professional and the food... More

We dined at Bella Baci on Wednesday evening. The food was excellent. We had the goats cheese parcels and brushetta. Both were very nice. I had the Surf and Turf which was cooked to perfection. The flavours were excellent. All the staff and management were very friendly efficient and informative. I would dine here again

I have walked past Bella Bacci for 10 years and dismissed the restaurant as being mainly for tourists – how wrong I was! As a local to Cairns I can highly recommend Bella Bacci to fellow Cairns locals and visitors. Yes it is more expensive then other Cairns restaurants ($35-$45) but very much priced like other restaurants in Palm Cove... More

I visited Bella Baci with friends and we were all very impressed with the food and service. A fantastic menu - biggest problem was narrowing down our choices. I went for the 450gm steak topped with prawns. Best steak I've had in a long time. We'll definitely return sometime soon to try other dishes from the menu.
