Great location and clearly gets a lot of business because of that. The food was OK, but not a good carbonara. It is always difficult to get a Gluten Free meal, but when a restaurant says that they make it GF, then they should always consider that it should be made for a Coeliac and not for people with food...

Visited with elderly Italian parents. They felt a bit cool near the door so staff more than happy too move us further in. Nothing was a problem. Always attentive staff, great atmosphere with most tables filled with patrons. Food tasty and fresh. I had a tub full mussels which were so good. Others enjoyed the fish of the day. Great... More

During our holiday in Palm Cove we decided to spend the evening at Trinity Beach. After a stroll along the beautiful beach we got hungry and liked the look of L'Unico. It was still early so we got the best seat in the house overlooking the water. We ordered the spaghetti gamberi and seared scallops for entree. For dinner we... More

This restaurant is always busy as it is well positioned at the main intersection just by the beach. We had pasta, fish and chips and pizza. Food was fine but getting service was hard! Waited an age just to get a drink.

Aldo D, Owner at L'Unico Trattoria Seafood Restaurant, responded to this review

Dear George. So frustrating when it takes so long to get a drink. Its stressful because you don't know whether the order has been forgotten. as long as the waiter keeps you posted re times then that can make it better Yr right we are an incredibly busy restaurant and thank you for mentioning that and the food. Kind regards,... More

Dear Micko. We have a reputation as a romantic venue which was only enhanced when a couple were spotted getting a bit frisky on our deck a couple of weeks back. They were of course cut off though they apparently had drawn a bit of a crowd. Thank you for taking the time to write. Best Aldo More

We drive to this restaurant for lunch from Palm Cove whenever we holiday here. It never fails to disappoint. The seafood is always fresh and delicious, the service friendly and the ambiance perfect.

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.
