A slight walk from the Esplanade where most tourists congregate. It's worth the walk here because the pizza was great. The garlic bread was the absolute BEST garlic bread we have ever had. So fluffy and buttery. Soooo good. We dreamt about it for days...More

Excellent Italian pasta, pizzas and desserts (highly recommend the banana panna cotta); lovely waitress who was most attentive to our family and very friendly, this is not an inexpensive restaurant despite the paired back med ambience - expect AUD 120-150 for a family of four...More

We've had dinner here a few times before. The food has always been spot on and we think the best Italian food in Cairns. Service was quick too.

Grabbed a pizza takeaway. Yummy toppings, not too much. A thin base although not as thin as in italy. Service was very friendly. They called me by my name when I walked in!

The pizza we had today ("Salvatoré original") was really bad: it looked like a frozen pizza with some toppings, and the the ingredients were all but fresh. Moreover, it was tasteless... I actually already tasted frozen pizzas that were better than this one.More
