Had a fantastic meal while visiting family. Our 20 month old took quite a shining to one of the staff Matt, so big thanks for being so great with her. Food was great and all the staff were wonderful.

Other Italian themed restaurants on the beachfront strip but this one is tops,... More

It is hard to go past Italian food for me amd when your up in the tropics of qld a Marinara is definitely something you want to try. They had a great selection of Italian food and wine and their service was outstanding. A must go if you are feeling like some Italian food.
