We ate here on our recent stay in Cairns. We had pizza, which was neither the best nor worst that I have ever had. The waitress was very friendly and welcoming. Prices were fair. At 6pm on a weeknight the place was almost vacant, which...More

We had the pizza. Both really excellent - so tasty. The 10” would have been plenty big enough but because it was 2 for 1 we had the large. Leftovers for next day. Can get wine by the glass which is always a good option....More

The service is friendly (if a little haphazard) and the food is fine given the prices charged. Don't expect fine Italian dining but rather solidly cooked classics at a budget price. Wine by the glass looked like a real bargain..until I saw the size of...More
