Good place. Good food. Good service. Good value for money. What can you ask for more.
Not to mention the fantastic weather of Cairns.

Lots of pizza places around Cairns however this one was recommended by a friend and although it is a little out of the way it was well worth the extra walk,
In saying that, Cairns only has a small CBD so no big problem.
There is a good range of pasta and other Italian meal however I was ready for a pizza and they did not disappoint.
Its been there for a long time (I gather) so fitting, chairs, tables etc are fairly basic and showing their age.
Staff were friendly and welcoming.

It's sometimes a problem to find great pizza in a new town; we've had one bad experience here in Cairns but the menu at Bel Paese encouraged us to give it a try. We walked in with no reservation (quite early in the evening) and were greeted with a smile and seated immediately.
The service was professional but friendly and the pizza was terrific. We chose to sit outdoors and watch the passing parade. My partner is a garlic bread fan; I tend to not eat it when I'm having pizza as it doubles up on the carbs. But I had to try a piece at Bel Paese as it looked so good. Tasted great too.
The pizza is available in 10" or 13" sizes. We shared two small, a Capriciosa and a Supreme (minus the pineapple, with chilli added). The bases were crisp yet tender, cooked perfectly in fact. Toppings were generous.
It's too easy to compromise on quality by ordering cheap pizza from the chain stores but you ultimately get what you pay for. This meal was more expensive than an el cheapo takeaway but worth every cent. A small but good wine list with several labels available by the glass.
Highly recommended.

I had the best dining experience at the resturant. The food was excellent and the service was to match. Staff were friendly and the place was clean and inviting. My meal was to die for and the dessert was even better.
