Pros:
Quiet suburban venue - lovely alfresco options
Staff and service superb (keeping wine classes and water topped is always my barometer for attentive staff)
Menu reads wonderfully. Tastes as it reads.... beautiful. The Al Nero Di Seppia was perfection. Other contenders were the arinchini balls, beetroot gnocchi and scotch fillet
Owners and executive chef interacting with customers - terrific
Very authentic Italian dining

Cons: I was a little underwhelmed by the decor (was hard to find a con). The atmosphere could step up to bring Italy to Cairns that little bit more. Or maybe i missed those subtleties.

Owners should be very proud of what they have achieved.

Another spectacular night at Vitalia’s! It’s been a while since we have been in for dinner however once again the food and service blew us away! Always accommodating and delicious food.

We were recommended this restaurant when we moved to Cairns.
First time we ate there (last month) we couldn’t fault the food or service.
Tonight, however, it was terrible.
I ordered the chicken scollipini and despite the menu saying it was chicken breast it was chicken tenderloins, that were slightly undercooked and very tough.
My wife ordered the same dish on our first visit and it was vastly different second time around.
The service was great and the young guy at the cashier was very helpful, the owner/manager? was rude though saying “I asked you if you liked it and you said yes” well that’s true but I only had eaten a potato by that stage!
Very disappointing experience. Much better places to spend $90 on a Saturday night meal.
Won’t be going back!

Arrived in Cairns for the Ironman race and was looking for some excellent Italian food to prepare for the race and came across Vitalias Italian Restaurant. Very, very glad we did!

Very pleased with the quality of our food and overall experience with Antonio and his wife’s hospitality. Antonio spent some time walking through the menu with us and recommended a seafood pasta, potato and sausage gnocchi and a prociutto pizza. All three were fantastic! Somehow we saved room for dessert and that was also great!

Antonio and the entire kitchen staff came out to sing happy birthday - in Italian too - to some guests. Exceptional customer experience and you can tell they truly care about their food and their customers satisfaction.

Will be sure to return next time I’m in Cairns and will recommend to any friends I have traveling to Cairns in the future!
