We frequent this restaurant often and cannot recommend it highly enough. The food is always amazing and the staff are always so helpful and friendly. I always have the Barramundi and it has to be the best in Cairns. You definitely have to come here

It was the best bruschetta we have ever eaten! The herb bread and pesto pasta were amazing too! It's not in the tourist area but it's worth a visit. The ambience is nice and romantic. They have plenty of options for vegetarians.

Had high hopes for this place.. lovely rustic italian interior, really nice staff.... sadly that's where it ended! The pizza was by far one of the worst I have ever had, the base was unpleasant, and because of the abundance of Thai basil on it there was a strong taste of liquorice which was overpowering. I ordered ravioli in a... More

I have been to almost all of Italy, so coming back to Australia and eating pizza and pasta has never been the same. However, Little Ricardos is the closest piece of Italy we have in Cairns. I have been here many times and can easily say its the best Italian food in Cairns. Highly recommend, and great value for money.... More

A nice little restaurant located in Adobe Motel. Decided to try this little Italian restaurant because of rave reviews of the food from friends. This place did not disappoint! Don't be put off by the older style tables & chairs - we thought this added to the atmosphere of the restaurant. Visited on a Friday night. Quite busy. Probably best... More

We just went there for a drink after dinning. The restaurant was good visited and the food smelled fantastic-for sure we try it out next time. We got a good and friendly service despite that we just had a short drink at the bar.
