Had a delightful dinner and a few drinks in this very friendly restaurant. The Italian chef has it down pat for seafood and my husband was delighted with his Fettucine Cabonara. Thoroughly enjoyed this establishment, the menu is great with plenty of choices and you can sit inside or out on the verandah with a lovely sea view

Lovely place for two friends to catch up and chat, fantastic food, great selection of wines - though we have favourites, and a view to die for. The service went hand in hand with all of the above to make the experience perfect

The bartender started us with some great local drinks and he was very friendly. We had lunch pizza. It was true Italian pizza. Thin and delicious. The next night we went for dinner and had bread with a cheese dip it was amazing. I would highly recommend the Veal Marsala also delicious! Had a chocolate cake for desert. If you... More

We have been to L'Unico four times over the last few months as a family, and have all enjoyed the experience each time. The staff are attentive and keen, with a can-do attitude. The Italian food is great, from entree through to desert, and reasonably priced, with large main sizes. The outlook is very pleasant, and will impress non-locals. There... More

Dear 666 thank you for taking the time write. Our fish and chips is for the most part consistently good but occasionally the spanish mackerel we buy can be on the oily side.

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.
