Our first meal in Pt. Douglas was at Osteria Padella and we were treated to fabulous, fresh pasta with terrific staff. The dish we had was recommended by the staff, was altered to accommodate our preferences and was delicious. The seating outside is very comfortable and casual; the prices are in line with other restaurants - not inexpensive. A terrific experience.

Fantastic choice for dinner in Port Douglas. The food was excellent. Top quality. Fantastic authentic Italian dishes of great quality and superb flavour. Inspired dishes that transport you to a little Osteria in Italy. Loved the fillet beef dish with mushrooms, was not what I was expecting but a wonderful surprise. Great service, very friendly and efficient. Would highly recommend. Its a new restaurant and not as popular as more established restaurants but is so much better.

Newly opened in Port Douglas and billing itself as "Laboratory of Rustic Italian Cuisine" these guys have got it right!
Four of us thoroughly enjoyed our evening and could not fault the food, service or atmosphere. This is definitely not your average Pizza, Spag Bol and Garlic bread Italian restaurant. Chef Mauro has devised some beautiful dishes served feasting style to share. After ordering our entrees we let the waitress order for us for mains. Consequently we got to try a good selection of dishes. All absolutely faultless.
Standout dish of the night, decided unanimously, was the Pappardelle with Porcini Mushrooms. This was probably the best pasta I have ever tried. Simple flavours executed deliciously.
Service wise, food arrived quickly, we were never left short of a drink and the staff were attentive without being over the top
Thank you to Patrizia, Astrid and Francesco, we will be seeing you again soon. Keep up the great work!!
