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.

“Italian chef and Italian cuisine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 week ago

Had a delightful dinner and a few drinks in this very friendly restaurant.
The Italian chef has it down pat for seafood and my husband was delighted with his Fettucine Cabonara.
Thoroughly enjoyed this establishment, the menu is great with plenty of choices and you can sit inside or out on the verandah with a lovely sea view

Dear coming back.
Lovely heartwarming review.
Our head chef always loves it when someone appreciates the work he puts in.
If he didn't have a big head he does now.
Thanks for taking the time to write.
Warm regards

“Girls lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile

Lovely place for two friends to catch up and chat, fantastic food, great selection of wines - though we have favourites, and a view to die for. The service went hand in hand with all of the above to make the experience perfect

Thank you Denise.
lovely review.
i have mentioned numerous times as to how restaurants are pretty fickle and rely heavily on consistency.
We are going through a good period touch wood regarding the quality of food and our service. Long may it remain so.
Warm regards

“Excellent Italian Restaurant ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

The bartender started us with some great local drinks and he was very friendly. We had lunch pizza. It was true Italian pizza. Thin and delicious. The next night we went for dinner and had bread with a cheese dip it was amazing. I would highly recommend the Veal Marsala also delicious! Had a chocolate cake for desert. If you love chocolate you will love this! One of our best meals on this part of our trip!
