About La Fettuccina

Established in 1989, La Fettuccina is a long-standing favourite on Cairns’ dining scene, with almost equally long-standing staff. Patrons have been returning time and time again to this iconic restaurant to relax under its awning on bustling Shields Street, or rendezvous in a warm, elegant interior where authentic Italian fare is on the menu. Featuring fresh, housemade pasta and local ingredients sourced from nearby farmlands and bay’s glistening waters, dishes are big on size and bursting with flavoursome tastes. Choose to start with grilled scallops in creamy lemon zest and white wine sauce, served with salad; before delving into Agnello Piccante - grilled lamb cutlets, rosemary, capers and white wine sauce, on a bed of roast potatoes - or fettuccine with mixed seafood in tomato sauce.
