Lovely view of the beach. We had a light lunch to share of bruschetta and mussels in white wine and garlic. Both were delicious.

We ate here on the final night of our 9 day holiday in Cairns. We booked for a Saturday and I’m glad we did because it was heaving. Our very friendly waitress showed us to our table and brought over some water. We had previously looked at the menu and both knew what we were having so that made the... More

Enjoyed the coffee with lunch but that's about the best we could say. Not often that we rate a restaurant poorly but in fairness to do otherwise would detract from the purpose of tripadvisor. We have visited this restaurant previously for breakfast and that was fine. Ordered the proscuitto and parmesan pizza. The procuitto was too chewy and the rocket... More

We have both the pleasure of breakfast here and dinner. The ginger cake for brekky was lovely and different. I had the chilli bugs pasta for dinner which was excellent. What is very noticeable is the attentive service no matter who and what time of day, which is a sign of a great service leadership culture. To boot it is... More

After a great deal of discussion with the staff who took our order, we thought they had understood that one member of our family is lactose intolerant. Five adults and one 8 year old should not create an issue. Wrong! The 8 year old (lactose intolerant) had her meal delivered with Parmesan cheese. It was followed up with garlic bread... More

dear Liz M. I of course remember the incident and had numerous conversations with the American gentleman on your table. We did admit we got it wrong once and we of course felt terrible when he mentioned the 8 year old girl suffered stomach pains. All of this was spoken about and honestly mistakes are common in this industry so... More

Our dinner @ L'unico was truly the best restaurant find in the Cairns area...and on our last night in town. Whatta treat! We did look online and read the TA reviews and I was particularly impressed that Aldo replied to many of them -- especially the not-so-good-ones. Proof positive that even the best of restaurants do have an off night.... More

Had dinner here with my husband and despite it being a mid week night, the restaurant was packed. A good omen. We waited for a table but it was well worth it. The pasta was delicious and portion size large. I had seafood spaghetti which was packed with fresh seafood- including large mussels and juicy prawns. Delicious. My husband ordered... More

Stopped by here on the way to Port Douglas and I'm so glad we did. Excellent food and cocktails. I may have had the best calamari of my life! Sat on the balcony and enjoyed the sea breeze. Fantastic!

Description
L’Unico Trattoria started life as a small BYO in 1994. Set in an Idyllic location on the waterfront at Trinity Beach about 20km north of Cairns, the word soon spread, and L’Unico quickly became a regular dining spot for tourists and locals alike.In 1997, after three years at Trinity Beach we moved just 400 metres further along the beachfront to take advantage of even better ocean views and new, larger premises complete with wood-fired pizza oven and cocktail bar.
