“Great Pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2013

Little place the locals like to visit. Best pizza we've had in a while. Friendly people. If you're looking for a nice restaurant away from the centre of Cairns, this is definitely recommended. Don't forget it's BYO.

“A great find in Cairns - all locals”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

This is where the locals go for a great pizza, salad and a very friendly atmosphere.
Seems to cater for the locals who sit for hours on the fantastic outside deck and chat away bringing passers buy into the group.
Its BYO which we liked and a gourmet pizza on special this week was $20 and a nice desert $8.
No reservations so get there early.
Tip they have a couple of outside booths,grab on early as they are hot real estste

“Delicious pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2013 via mobile

We were a bit surprised when the owner of our B&B The Garden Gate (nr1 place to stay in cairns here on Trip Advisor) recommended a pizzaplace run by a Japanese couple. It doesn't sound like the best combination, but boy were we wrong. These people know how to make pizza. The only time we've had better pizza was in a tiny pizzeria in Italy.
Apparently the locals agree with us, because the place was packed every night. You can get take away or dine in, well out really. The restaurant is tiny, so the tables are outside. Not a problem in Cairns where it's warm outside even in winter.
The restaurant isn't licenced so it's BYO. They charge $2 for each bottle you bring. The liquor store down the street supplies cold white wine (and red though not chilled of course) or beer if you like. Mangiamo does have chilled glasses and ice buckets available.
The best part is that they are so friendly. You will get a thousand thank you's and they will do everything to make you comfortable. So if you're staying near edge hill, give them a try.
