Pizzas are ok but the menu is outdated and the food tastes like it has been the same as it would have been in made the 80s. Risotto had lots of seafood but was drowned in salty tomato paste and too strong to eat. Need to update their recipes.

Thick pizza with soggy topping, not our style. Not many patrons a bit of a warning, might be okay for a burger?

After doing some late night shopping my daughter and I popped in here for a quick meal. We both really enjoyed it. The staff bought a complimentary bread with balsalmic and oil dip, which was unexpected but appreciated. We shared a pizza, medium size with 6 slices was ample for the 2 of us. I enjoyed a cold glass of... More

We ordered pizzas and pasta from here with mixed results. 1st time pizza was good but second time the pasta was average. Not the best in the area

We arrived early to take advantage of the early bird offer, and ordered three pizzas. After about quarter of an hour, a waiter came out and put three pizzas on the table next to ours, where a group of seven people - who had only just ordered - were sitting. A few minutes later the other customers realised that they... More

On a mild winter's night in Cairns, what could be better than an Italian meal? No reason, just a reluctance to cook led us to A Taste of Italy. Firstly it is not a place to go to for a romantic liaison: its view of the carpark is unromantic and uninspiring, its (mainly outdoor) tables are packed with families, obviously... More

Living in Palm Cove for the past eight years, I yearn for a great pizza on a Friday night like we used to have in suburban Melbourne. I've been ordering home delivery pizza from a Taste of Italy in Clifton Beach for the past eight years (yes I'm a glutton for punishment) but there is no other pizza home delivery... More

First I didn't want to go for dinner here, because the place didn't look as if you could get a tasty and good meal. But we still went, and I was positively surprised and enjoyed a tasty pizza.
