A complete guide to Cairns Restaurants

Il Convivio

From the makers of Vanella cheeses come their passionate foray into cafe life. In a convenient location opposite Cairns Central shopping centre this shop is well worth a stop for cheese lovers and gourmet foodies.

You will find a large range of imported cheeses, especially from Italy, and of course a large variety of Vanella's own cheese range including their famous buffalo mozzarella.

There is also a good selection of small goods; salami, ham, proscuitto, panetta and other delights. We've recently spotted Iberico ham from Spain here!

Our recommendation is to ask for an antipasto platter for lunch, and bring a friend to share it with you.

Il Convivio is one of the best restaurants in Cairns!! The pastas are amazing and all homemade, and so is the pizza. Being Italian I don't like to go out for Italian food often, but I'm always here as the food is so good and it's very affordable!

Great food, great choices of fresh authentic produce and wonderful staff. One of Cairns' best kept secrets.
