Order your takeaway pizza, and a glass of wine to drink while you wait for it to cook . People watch at the bar then pop over the road to the board walk to eat your food with water views. A great budget option for a dinner on the esplanade. Pizzas are better than most and the atmosphere is buzzing.... More

Great pizza, great spaghetti, great garlic bread and great salads. We enjoyed eating in and taking away, visiting this restaurant three times during our stay. The pizza was quite good as were the drinks we enjoyed (sorry but I can't remember the name, but a "house" concoction). Spaghetti was also very good which we had as take out. Wait staff... More

This place is on the street level of the Mantra Trilogy and as that hotel does not have breakfast facilities this is a good option.

Have been here a few times over the last few months and its always busy, its best to book or you could be waiting for someone to leave. The food is great, good prices, definitely will be going back again

Service was wonderful. I think we met every server in the restaurant. They came by consistently to make sure we had all we needed and were exceptionally friendly. The food was delicious. We had garlic bread, the sticky rib special, spaghetti bolognese, and mussels. Everything was delicious. Would highly recommend this lovely restaurant if you're in Cairns.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. It may pay to make a booking if you want to go for an evening meal. We stayed in Cairns for 10 days and every night we walked past here there was always a line out the door so we booked in advance. The food was very fresh and lovely. An awesome night... More

The food was great, we had a Shrimp pesto pasta, which was AMAZING. The pasta was delcisous, with great presentation and very plentiful. The location of the Villa Romana restaurant was also convenient, since they have a very nice beach walk and many more restaurant/ bars along the way. WHY I gave this restaurant an AVERAGE rating was due to... More

I've been coming here for breakfast whenever I'm in Cairns for over 5 years. The service is consistently good and the breakfast is always great. Their food is basic (bacon & eggs) but always good and served quickly. Coffee is also excellent
