Italian food well presented and tasty. Great place to meet at the bar then eat. Sea view is excellent, can always find a table to suit no matter whether it's fine, sunny, rainy or windy. Relaxed atmosphere.

Great location, Nice outdoor bar area with bar stools & tables out of the wind, lovely view to have a drink and catch the afternoon sun! Competent, friendly staff - the bar area itself does however appear slightly disorganised. Ordered a pizza, which we had to send back as half of the base was raw, this was promptly rectified, the...

Nice atmosphere, friendly staff and good food for dinner. However we were very disappointed with the pizza which we ordered next day. For $20 it was very short on toppings. We felt ripped off.

The host appeared to be offended when we answered his question saying no, we didn't have a reservation. We waited to be seated even though there were empty tables. Once we were seated, service was slow. They were able to adapt a pasta marinara dish with gluten-free pasta, which I appreciated, but my friend said the pizza was just so-so... More

The restaurant is in a prime location, we had the Misto di mare (mixed bbq seafood selection) and pancetta di maiale (twice cooked pork belly with balsamic glaze). The seafood was simply amazing best mussels I've had in a long time. Good table service but my only complaint would be that the front desk is run in a very ad-hoc... More

Saturday night bookings are a must. We learned the hard way, but the same menu is available for takeaway. Not cheap with pizza and pasta mid $20's and large pastas closer to $30, but quality and flavour of the food was worth the spend. Restaurant quality food, takeaway in under 15 minutes = Saturday night sorted.

We didnt have a reservation on a busy Saturday night, we had a drink at the small little bar and the cocktails and service were great. Wasn't long before we got a table. They have these massive fans blowing from the ceiling and I was right under one which was marginally annoying, but they moved it so it wasn't blowing... More

We dined here whilst staying at Trinity and we loved it! I had beautiful gnocchi (which they kindly changed to have the risotto fungi seasoning) followed by a delicious barramundi special. My husband had the seafood pasta (capelli di Angelo) followed by the BBQ seafood platter. Everything was delicious and service was great too! A lovely atmosphere right on the... More

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.
