Went here via a friends recommendation and they did not disappoint! Garlic bread and our two pastas were beautifully cooked and absolutely delicious. This has just become my new favourite Italian takeaway in Cairns.

Enjoyed the Italian pasta meal and service was excellent. Good location in the City area. Used our Entertainment voucher as a first timer to the restaurant and will come again.

We went to Bel Paese for dinner last night with friends, the food was really nice especially the Tiramisu. We used our Entertainment app and was excepted with no questions asked, a big plus, nice staff as well. Would definitely recommend.

We visited for our 3rd time tonight and again asked ourselves why we don't come more often. Service is awesome, food so fresh and delicious and the Tiramisu gets a big thumbs up too. We'll be back more often!

The meals were wonderful, the service superb, just a fantastic place to eat. As soon as we entered they took care of us and with an elderly mother that is a big help. Thank you

Had pizza for dinner. It looks like a very simple, down to earth venue. Staff was very cheerful and friendly. I got a free upgrade from small to large size pizza. This is the first time i had four cheese pizza. It was intense. You have to be cheese lover to like it. It is their award winning dish. I... More
