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.

“They forget you..”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2012

Whilst the food is great and if you are eating in then no worries. The problem comes when you want take out. They always (and I mean always) forget you. They don't tell you your food is ready and when you go to check its been sat there for probably 10 minutes and has gone cold. No apologies offered or replacements - its just tough.

“Good Italian food and drinks”

We went here twice and the food was good, great drinks and service. The price was reasonable too. Definitely would go there again on another visit to Trinity Beach.

“Nice setting, good food, friendly service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2012

We enjoyed lunch at this open air restaurant which has seating both outside on the veranda and inside as well. Good range of foods plus daily specials; ditto for the bar and wine selections. Locals and vacationers enjoyed themselves.

“disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2012

After being to Lunicos a couple of years ago,and finding it quite nice, this time was different. The waitress was nice, but the food was really below standard. My daughter ordered a Carbonara which she couldnt eat, seemed like it was covered in Soy sauce and
very dry. I had a pasta with bugs, also very dry with a total of 6 pieces of bug. Not nice at
all, my daughters boyfriend ordered a steak, although ok , a very plain meal for $42.oo
Maybe the chef was away , but this meal was not up to standard.
