About us

Think of Italian cuisine, think of family, food & love!

We grew up on our warm Italian hospitality, to the authentic aromas in our open kitchen, to our flavorful, handmade recipes passed down for more than four generations.


Originally from Melbourne, after 10 years of trading this family owned restaurant decided to move to Airlie Beach.

Since moving to Airlie Beach, we have faced many unforeseen events, including cyclone Debbie only a couple of months after opening.


One of the first restaurants to reopen after the cyclone we have now established ourselves as one of Airlie’s most popular dining destinations.


Our menu is inspired by recipes passed down the generations and have now adapted this is the present day. Our pasta is homemade, and all our dishes created with the best available produce.


La Marina resides at the Port of Airlie surrounded by beautiful views of the marina.

We offer indoor and outdoor dining and can provide for large bookings and functions.


La Marina brings Italy to the Whitsundays.
