Menu offers a large range of options, not only pizza & pasta. Prices were good & the wait time was less than 10 minutes. The food was delicious & staff were friendly.

I visited here with family - while my order was first, it was the last to arrive....and was produced after enquiry - it was quite busy though. The complimentary bread was fresh, the 'roast' veg side/entree was overcooked albeit tasty, garlic bread nice (serves of 1 or 3 slices).

Having highly rated the Townsville Fasta Pasta, when we found out La Porchetta in Cairns had closed we defaulted straight to Fasta Pasta. We weren't disappointed. Great feed, good price and excellent service. For a good honest feed, don't hesitate.

I seriously don't understand the good feedback here. The food tastes awful. The service is ok, but charging 20$ for this kind of low quality food is outrageous.

Ate there a couple of times during our stay in Cairns. A very popular and busy restaurant. Meals were decent size portions, freshly cooked, tasty and reasonably priced. Service was excellent

Great value with the portion offered ! cant finish the whole dish by myself. Tastes good and will definitely go again. Great thing is that you can add different ingredients into your dishes to make your own pasta / pizza !

Thank Jef C
