“Best restaurant in cairns -”
Reviewed 28 January 2012

Eat out regulary in Cairns and keep going back to this wonderful restaurant. The staff are welcoming and friendly. I have taken all my visiting friends here when in town and have had nothing but exemptlary remarks from them. This is a must for locals and holiday makers alike. Highly recommend the fish and also ask for the salmon oysters "even if they are not on the specials menu." they will normally rustle them up if in stock. Enjoy.

“Fantastic food, warm, welcoming & affordable.”
Reviewed 22 January 2012

A thoroughly enjoyable night in the heart of Cairns. The staff made us feel very welcome, with smiles and personal opinions on their experiences with the dishes. Happy to give each customer the time, the stories, and eager to develop friendships with locals.

This restaurant takes influences of cuisine from all over Italy from the most basic homely dishes to the most complicated and extravagant. Mixed in with a little Australian influence here or there made the food extremely satisfying to taste.

Throughout the courses the food was consistently good as was the wine and service. The only thing that may bring this restaurant down is it's location, it isn't in the most inspiring part of town. But I guess in a very Italian way the experience is about the people you are with and the food you are eating.

“About time there was a decent Italian in Cairns”
Reviewed 3 January 2012

Was recommended by a work colleague to try for lunch - she is vegetarian. There was no-one in there on a Wednesday lunch time but it soon filled up. Authentic Italian atmosphere with the artwork, mirrors, decor etc. Nice glassware. Friendly service. Pasta and wine by the glass were delicious. My colleague's vege dish she wanted was no longer on the menu so they re-created it for her - no trouble. The best thing about this restaurant is that it is air-conditioned and they actually keep the doors closed. Try and find a restaurant in Cairns at this hot time of year that is air-conditioned AND keeps their doors closed. Made the food taste better, the conversation more relaxed and the drinks stayed cooler. Bellocale - you are onto a winner by doing this. Should've had our office Xmas lunch here. Can't wait to show this restaurant off to others.

Every once and a while you find a little gem of a restaurant and Bellocale is truly one of those. On our recent visit to Cairns we were recommended to Bellocale by a local and we not disappointed. The food was exceptional and the service was second to none.

“Excellent Food & Great Service - the perfect combination”
Reviewed 18 December 2011

David and his team know exactly what is required to ensure guests keep coming back; they know their food and they REALLY know how to look after their customers.
