We sat right inside, with a great view of the ocean. There was a nice cool breeze and no crowds at all. The pizza is very good. The service is good, a bit slower than you would be accustomed to in the states, but we are on a relaxing vacation and like to take our time and enjoy the view.

Been to a few restaurant around, but only found this one to be worth going back again. I came with my fiancé and parents on a cool summer evening. We enjoyed the Seaview very much and the breeze kept rolling in. The food are of excellent quality and we found the waitress, Camellia, was really really friendly! It all sums... More

We ate twice at L'Unico during our week in Trinity Beach, both times very enjoyable. The garlic bread is very good and we loved the four cheese dip with bread. We tried a some of the pasta dishes (carbonara, ravioli, lasagne and cannelloni) and also gnocchi, risotto and pizza. No complaints from any of our group of four! I would... More

Not a great deal of places to choose in Trinity Beach, but this one is by far the most popular and nice looking. We dropped in for lunch and were accommodated straight away, and enjoyed a scrumptious pizza along with drinks. Good price and nice atmosphere.

We have eaten here before and enjoyed it. This time the whole experince was awful. The waitress knew nothing about the menu or food. When our food eventually came, my husbands pizza was burn black on the base, making the pizza inedible. My pasta puttanesca, appeared to have had a whole jar of capers poured in to it! So this...

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. It does sound like a disappointing experience on so many levels. As you might imagine having had so much positive feedback of late it just proves what a roller coaster of a business hospitality can be. In my experience the main reason for this inconsistency is when you have major... More

I've only been in Trinity Beach a few days, but I've not been able to resist the food on more than one occasion. They also offer a great range of takeaway food too and I used this service and had a delicious prawn, garlic and chilli pasta which was mouth wateringly scrumptious. While waiting for my order I had a... More

Dear Jackie. Thank you so much for a wonderful review. The past you mentioned is indeed delicious and has proved one of our most popular. An ice cold glass of wine is a must especially with the weather getting warmer. Jackie i don't think i could have written a better review and its my restaurant xx More

Enjoyed a wonderful meal. We shared a plate of calamari which is local, lightly fried with rocket and chili salsa. Delicious. My spouse ordered the capelli di angelo, angel hair pasta with bugs, garlic, chili and white wine. Also delicious. I ordered the nut crusted barramundi (fairly large portion) which was also very good.

Firstly I have to confess that we love this place. It's been our favourite for 9 years and we always eat here when we are in Trinity Beach. The evening sea breeze, the balcony view, the candle lights, the exotic cocktails, the friendly and efficient service, and the great menu are irresistible. While some places can lose their charm over... More

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.
