The view is amazing sitting on the verandah looking out to the ocean. Meals where very tasty and generous size and the service very good. A good selection of Italian inspired meals to choose from Pizza and pasta for the children was yummy

My husband and I came across this restaurant by accident while on a drive to Trinity Beach. We had the most amazing lunch! He is very fussy with his food and we simply could not fault the food or the service! Loved it so much that we came back a week later for a decadent afternoon tea followed by the... More

This informal Italian seafood restaurant is right opposite the ocean at Trinity Beach. The food is always delicious and the service is efficient and friendly. Prices are comparable to other restaurants but the quality of the food is very high.

Four of us shared a table. Two were happy and two were disappointed. The pizza and meat lasagna dishes were great but the mushroom risotto had a sharp garlic taste suggesting it had not been cooked through sufficiently while the vegetable lasagna was lacking in flavour. The staff were attentive but our waitress needed to be more cheerful for us... More

Dear Steve, Thanks for the post. consistency is key in any restaurant and I'm sorry to hear about the lasagna and risotto. i know what you're saying re the sharp garlic taste and as we know a good risotto needs constant attention whilst cooking. as for the lasagna we make it up in large trays and having tasted the current...

We visit l'Unico often. It is our "go to" place if we can't be bothered thinking of an alternative. It is always pleasant and the food is always great. Noticeably, there seems to be a very low staff turn-over rate which has to say a lot about any business. Great restaurant to bring your whole extended family for a good... More

Fantastic view, wonderful food. The pizza was phenomenal. I had the mushroom risotto which was yum! Hubby had a chicken on sweet potato mash - said it was an amazingly tender and tasty. Daughter had pizza it was fantastic... Mind you the gelato won first prize!

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.
