Description: L’Unico Trattoria started life as a small BYO in 1994. Set in an Idyllic location on the waterfront at Trinity Beach about 20km north of Cairns, the word soon spread, and L’Unico quickly became a regular dining spot for tourists and locals alike.In 1997, after three years at Trinity Beach we moved just 400 metres further along the beachfront to take advantage of even better ocean views and new, larger premises complete with wood-fired pizza oven and cocktail bar.

I took the kids here for cakes, expensive but good. What I saw in the other peoples plates look ok. the man at the next table said his meal was wonderful. I'm a very good cook so very hard to please in a restaurant.

Thank rosy002

Seated and served drinks on arrival and we placed our food order at the same time. Then sat with empty drinks for a long time - yes it was busy - and we were patient. 1 hour and 10 minutes after placing our food order and still nothing we asked about at least getting the pizza for the kids. Owner / Manager came and "explained" his computer system and how the waiter enters in the data (really do we need to know), still went on to explain about a line being on the computer which meant.... oops our orders were missed. Didn't get an apology - we didn't want a story about the computer just the words "I am sorry" or "I apologise". An offer of a free icecream for the kids would have gone a long way and probably cost him $3 in profits. Instead he got annoyed that we weren't interested in hearing about his computer system. Would never go there again. The pastas were nice but the pizza from the menu for the kids was below average. We were there for a special occasion and it was a shame.

It had been close to a year since we last dined at L'Unico and once again we were not disappointed. Our group worked their way through starters, mains and desserts all of which were deliceous. The service was attentive and informative. The menu choice is quite large and the wine list is comprehensive. We were rewarded with a close to full moon that rose over Trinity Beach casting a glow over the rippling waters. Very Nice. The overall bill represented decent value for money.

Went on a Sunday night before a long weekend and the place was busy. Took 45 minutes to get our entree and you could see lots of people getting frustrated.

The food was good and the waitress tried her best to keep us 'in the loop' about how long away our meals where. Her efforts went a long way to making up for the wait.

Overall it was worth it as the food was very nice and the place had a cool atmosphere.
