Ate here one of our nights in Cairns and were very disappointed. Manager seating us was passive aggressive and borderline rude. And our pizza was burnt. Actual waiting staff were lovely, although overworked, either there was someone not pulling their weight or they were understaffed.

Excellent wood oven pizza and pasta. A vibrant place right on the Esplanade with great service. Reasonably priced for Cairns.

After eating out for two weeks, every meal whilst on holidays in Brisbane and Cairns, this was without doubt the best meal we had. The fish blew away all other seafood meals we had. And lets say we didn't eat to a budget. Great price, good service, excellent barra.

We love almost everything about La Pizza Trattoria! The food is excellent - especially the Mare Fantasia (Marinara Pizza) and the Chorizo Speziato - gnocchi with chorizo, pumpkin, spinach and tomato pesto. We love the Esplanade view and sea breezes and the atmosphere. The staff are always pleasant and helpful. If it's really busy, they alway try to let you... More

Mmmmm how good is the gnocchi! It's one of our most popular dishes, it just seems to be a hit with everyone! And you are right - all desserts are made on site including the gelato and sorbet! We even bake the bread and croissants fresh every morning! Thank you for continuing to dine with us, we really appreciate it... More

Outstanding views of local waterfront foot and car traffic if you love people watching. We did!! Hands down the best thin crust pizza ever on this earth. It was doughy, not hard or burnt. Tasty when paired with a nice red wine or all on its own. The hubby had a tiramisu which he raved about. I tried it and... More

Hey, Thank you for a 5/5 review! We especially love the photos of the view and the tiramisu that you posted! We make our tiramisu on sight at it is one of our favourites! The outdoor seating is perfect for people watching we find, and enough cover for if it does rain. We hope to see you again soon! More

Hi Melbbern, Sorry to hear on this occasion that you didn't enjoy your dinner. I must say that our misses do not come from a tin, and our carbonara receives so many rave reviews!

Location is great with the restaurant located right on the Esplanade. Service was a little slow but friendly. Most importantly, pizzas were delicious. Lunch specials provide great value!!

Had family dinner here because it was close to our hotel and we felt like pasta. Service and wait staff was good, food was served in good time.... but food was average at best. Warm tiger prawn salad was 6 small prawns and rocket with dressing. Nothing else! My husbands prawn risotto was too creamy and we struggled to find... More

35 minutes for a drink to arrive and almost an hour for the meal. Garlic bread was small, pre prepared pizza dough with garlic salt powder from a bottle sprinkled on it. Mains were ordinary.

Sounds like you had a fantastic night indulging in pizzas! We certainty do have lots of flavour and toppings to pick from, something for everyone! The small pizza is perfect for one person, medium is good if you are hungry, and large is perfect for sharing! We even offer a half half option for pizza toppings! More
