Really friendly service and great food. We are here three times during a four day stay and the variety and quality of food was only surpassed by the friendliness of the staff.

This is a funky restaurant on the beach at Trinity. Excellent atmosphere and good service. Meals were delicious, well priced and prompt. Advantage to book to secure prime seating outside during the winter months. Wide choice of Italian fare.

First time eating there in a few years and wasn’t too bad. Lighting was too dim (maybe to keep those mosquitos away) and staff where ok. Great location on the Beach front and plenty of parking.

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.
