About Alessandro's Pizzeria & Antipasto Bar

Boasting spectacular views of Far North Queensland’s signature lush forestry, Alessandro’s on Lake Placid is one Cairns dining destination you are sure to remember. A spacious deck area covered by the shade of white sails allows you to soak up a panorama of majestic river and rainforest scenery, while an earthy cosy interior beckons with a roaring open wood fire and warm Italian hospitality. Take a seat and browse Alessandro’s menu of authentic Italian cuisine; start with chargrilled garlic tiger prawns before diving into tasty mains such as gnocchi drizzled with fresh pesto or a signature wood fired Neapolitan pizza topped with premium ingredients – perhaps the prosciutto and mushroom garnished with a sprinkle of fresh basil.

Best Pizza in Australia
Alessandro's is absolutely amazing!! My husband and I LOVE pizza, and without a doubt we both think it's the best pizza in Australia - including all the ones we've been to in Melbourne with strong reputations. I have never written a food review - but I just had to for this place. The bases are absolutely perfect (not to thick, amazing crust) the toppings are delicious - all top quality ingredients, the sauce is the best I've ever had and just the right amount, not too saucy or too dry. Thank you Alessandro for making such awesome pizza.


Wont be back
Arrived at 615pm had to go get own menus after at least 20mins . Restaurant was about half full ,table behind were complaining about service but we were told by waitress that she was new but might i add very rude. Finally got our red wine but 1 glass was spilt over our table apologisies were said Entrees came out after 45min wait 1 was not what was ordered and 1 we didnt get for another 20 mins We had a family group of 4 adults and 2 children we asked for the kids pizza to come out with entrees ham / cheese /pineapple but it came out after at least 1 hour since we ordered and no pineapple and not cut . Asked if we could have salt but didnt get it so went over to bar where there were 2 pepper shakers only . Now to the mains that came 1hr 45mins after ordering and only 3 came apologisies were said and the other 1 was on its way . After a 20min wait everyone else were finished kids getting tired and still no main meal we up and went to manager said not to bother with that meal told him of our service and were prepared to pay for drinks but not the meal . He apologised again and we left Such a shame beautiful setting but the worst service in cairns



Authentic passionate Italian food ! Enjoyed everything about our Alessandro's experience highly recommend !


Never disappointed and I've never left hungry! Friendly staff and excellent traditional Italian cuisine


Exceptional - nuff said


Wonderful food and place, loved it. Staff really friendly, two missing due to illness, still very helpful and great service! Absolutely LOVED the beef cut, pizza's were good as well. Highly recommended, would come here again.


Great place for authentic Italian! Amazing food, excellent friendly service.


Greeted and served by caring, friendly owner. Food was beyond our expectations, delicious with generous servings. We had bruschetta, fish and pasta, and imported chinotto! Bravo! We are coming back for your famous wood fired pizza! #hiddengem #italianexperience


Awesome , I am your newest regular that is some of the best food I have had in a long time cairns needs to eat here to find out what good food is.


With Alessandro's being newly opened we decided to sample the offerings of this ideally located restaurant at Lake Placid. Our first visit, there have been more since, was on New Years Eve where we sat down to a six course meal which exceeded our expectations for taste, presentation and variety. Plain in decor, we found the service exceptional and the food first class. All staff made our visit most enjoyable with the timing of checking for drinks and serving the next course spot on. Without pointing to any one dish as our favourite we would recommend both "seated dining" or a pizza and cold beer while seated or standing at "the galley table" overlooking the river and mountains. Highly recommended.
