We were looking for somewhere to eat and jumped on this website. It didn't disappoint, the food was magic and the service second to none. Thanks for a great dining experience. We will be back.

Visited La Fettuccina with girlfriends last night before heading to the flicks around the corner. We explained to the waiter that we had less than an hour and he was more than helpful to get our food out as quick as possible. This did not affect the quality of the food whatsoever.
The garlic bread was simple yet delicious, the bruschetta was so fresh, light, and not too oily, and the pasta was devine. I had the Fettuccini Marinara in tomato sauce...wow! One girlfriend had the gnocci, and was more than pleased, and the lasagne looked amazing, there was a lot of satisfied 'mmmming and arhhhhing' coming from our table.
Supposedly this restaurant has been here for years...why haven't i been before? It could be missed i guess, seen as it's squashed between two other big restaurants, but i will definitely be visiting this restaurant again, and most definitely be recommending it to friends and family. I also work at a hotel along the Esplanade, so i will be mentioning you guys to all the guest that pass through and ask for recommendations of nice places to eat.

I have been coming to Cairns for 18 years and can honestly say that the best place to eat is La Fettuccina. I now live here and still look forward to a night out that includes a meal at this restaurant! Not sure how they still consistently provide the best pasta, sauces, steaks, etc for miles, but keep it up!!

Marek, you should be very proud of yourself. Great food, great staff.
