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.

We go there every once in a while for lunch and dinner and absolutely love the view but the restaurant needs a bit of a makeover. The food is good. It's not 5 star cuisine but nothing to complain at all. The lasagne and mussels are great. Maybe the service could be a little bit faster too. You constantly have to get the waiters attention if you would like something else. They never come over by themselves and ask if you would like another glass of wine etc. All in all pretty good.

We went for a late lunch to this well patronised bar restaurant. The service we received was great and the food a real delight. We shared a pizza and a salad; perfect for a light lunch. There was no pressure to order more nor to move on quickly as in some restaurants.

I was impressed when we got 2 bowls with our order one for the empty shells and the other was warm water finger Noel with al lemon slice great for cleanup after eating mussels. My mussels were great but my husbands were old a not great we had ordered them different sauce style

Of the 4 of us dining only one really enjoyed their meal and thought it value for money. I ordered a vegetable stack as a main meal only to find when paying the bill they had doubled the price and charged me $34!! Really for a small plate of vegetables. Depends on your interpretation of the word 'stack'.

Have been a few times before but seems things have gone downhill at L'Unico.

Contracted food poisoning from the curried prawn pasta and have been ill all night. Started being ill within two hours after eating and still I'll now at 0500 the next morning.
