“Average”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

It's cheap, so if you order fettucine-chicken-pesto; that's what you get. With cheese on top. Not one ingredient more.
Service very quick and friendly.

“Great service”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

For a restaurant that doesn’t catch your eye as you walk past, the service was outstanding and the meals are nice as well. We found this place to be quite the surprise. The cheesy garlic bread was amazing, it actually tasted like garlic and the pasta and pizza are great as well. The stand out feature for our visit was once again the service that we got from our waiter. So polite, friendly and professional, by far the best service we have had in a while.

“Good casual restaurant”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

If you're looking for a more casual and affordable place to eat in Cairns, this is a good choice. The appetizers are decent, although the pizza is the highlight of the menu in my opinion. There are unique choices, but charging an extra fee for putting different toppings on each half of the pizza is excessive (especially since the whole pizza is charged based on the price of the more expensive half). There's outdoor seating but it's not as busy a location as places closer to the Esplanade so less people watching. Service is fairly good but disappears at times.

“Great Italian Food”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

Very authentic Italian food. We had the spaghetti puttanesca which was full of flavour and the pasta was cooked just right. Calamari serve sligtly small but the pizza was excellent. Good value for money compared to some of the other places to eat in Cairns. Enjoy.
