Ate here for a work function and the food was simply amazing. Also accompanied by nice Italian wine. If you like Italian then give it a try

In town for business and met up with an old mate, he's a local and recommended we try this place. Wow - what a cute little boutique restaurant - lovely service, awesome food! A touch pricey but well worth it... The Bruscetta Ai Fungi was absolutely yummy! We both decided on the Papperdelle Bugs - please do yourself a favour... More

Thank goodness we stumbled across this understated restaurant in Shields Street. I am always impressed by a great "specials' blackboard and the descriptions really bought my curiosity to life. I was very impressed that the description matched the skills of the kitchen. The food was delicious with delicate combinations to bring the food to life.

Dined here with 2 other business colleagues. There were a number of dishes on the menu and the specials board which were enticing. I had the steak with truffled mash and spinach. At $42 not inexpensive. The steak was cooked just right for me. The truffled mash was delicious although a little more truffle oil would have added to my... More

Travelled in Australia for 1 month and did not find any better than this. Lucky as we found the place on our first night. Authentic Italian cuisine with friendly and efficient service. Loved it. Is 12000 miles too far to try the food again. Possibly

We have been here a few times and quite honestly it just gets better every time. The menu is expansive as are the daily specials. It is a small restaurant with a really nice ambiance. We will be back again!

This small, delightful italian restaurent in Cairns was a truly wonderful experience. Recommended by a Cairns local (Jeremy) the food and service was exceptional. Thank you to our canadian waitress who was an absolute delight, making us feel welcome, and to the chef/s superb cooking we recommend this restaurent highly.

We went here as it had good reviews. The food was great and so was the service but it was quite expensive.
