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.

“Great Italian food!”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

My son ordered gnocchi and this dish could be a hit or miss at Italian restaurant but they executed perfectly. We returned for dinner the next evening and had exceptional food as well.
A wonderful surprise!

“Fabulous Food”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

Loved the food, ate here 3 times in the week. One of the wait staff was really friendly and had only started 3 weeks before but the other staff were not dressed that well and had the attitude. Its a pity as the attitude really turned me off.

I'm a serial diner at lunis and the food is always fantastic - the setting is beautiful and the staff are always helpful and attentative - whether you want an intimate dinner for two or cocktails and snacks on the deck you can get it all at L'unicos. Love your work guys :)

“Service...what service..no wifi.”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

I wondered in at about 12.30 in the afternoon, walked up to the bar and the bar man just ignored me. No greeting, no i'll be with you shortly just ignored me. Waited about 7 minutes and he finally gives me a curt Can I help you. I inquire if he had wifi as I needed to do some emails whilst enjoying a drink and light lunch. No ...so after being treated like I didnt exist and the fact they cant get with the times and install wifi for customer... I left. Ive eaten and written a review before and the service issues were highlighted then, 2 years ago, still haven't picked up. Plenty of other places to eat like Fratelli or Lime Tree where you are treated well. Go elsewhere folks.
