This was our go to place during our stay in cairns. We walked by the restaurant and saw that it was packed. So..it must be pretty good, we thought. They had a pretty elaborate list of pizzas and pasta. We were asked to wait for 20 minutes if we wanted a table. We decided to get a take away Caprice... More

This restaurant has a range of dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner - it's not all about the pizza. We enjoyed the wild mushroom and asparagus breakfast option, and the pancakes were light and fluffy, washed down with good coffee. A nice view out over the bay. Would recommend.

WINE: NZ sav blanc.. bright yellow tasted bad. How can NZ wine be bad?? PASTA: Prawn pieces, not real prawns, undercooked pasta. Thankfully the chilli completly drowned out the taste of the entire dish. I suspect it would have been unappealing otherwise. Photo attached. No pasta sauce at all! SNOW PEAS: were really nice OLIVES: very dry. Little marinate. Other... More

Very busy here but got nice table right next to the Esplanade. In between seating guests & describing menu to people looking at the posting, hostess Marika Matula chatted with us & made our visit here much more enjoyable. We sipped a Lost Turtle Pinot Noir along with great ciabatta. For dinner Jean had Veal Limone & I had Seafood... More

It was a busy Friday night, but we got a table and enjoyed watching the activity along the Esplanade. Our waiter was helpful in answering our questions about the various pastas dishes and we chose a pesto with chicken and a seafood pasta plus a cab-merlot. The pasta and sauces were delicious and well prepared. The wine was fruit forward... More

Thank you for a great 5 star review! The restaurant does get pretty packed, especially on weekends, and we love how it adds to the atmosphere on the esplanade. We do have breads available to be ordered, and the waiter should have offered this option for you. We will make sure that is touched on in our next training session!... More

If you're a vegetarian do give this place a shot. Their risotto is excellent. It's located right on the Esplanade so perfect location.

Hi Khyati_gupta, Thank you for your great review about our risotto! It is actually one of my personal favourite mushroom risottos that I have ever eaten...it is definitely a winner! Another great vegetarian dish is the pear and rocket salad, just beautiful! More

Really enjoyable evening here! They were busy, but magically created a new spot for us to the side of the main eating area. We all ordered a variety of dishes, including the Gamberi Peperoncino - outstanding, the Vitello Piccato Lombardo - which was also outstanding. The waiter recommended the Rucola side salad for the table which was also excellent. Great... More
