‘There was a takeaway order placed from possibly her hostie [a flight attendant],’ Ms Aiello told  on Wednesday.

‘She did tell him [the waiter] she was an air host from a flight leaving for MILFs the States.

‘All we can say as a business is it’s a possibility this went to [Kardashian’s] plane and she could enjoy something on her way home.’

Piccolo Cucina is located on the ground floor of the luxury Pullman hotel, an hour’s drive from where Kardashian was staying with her boyfriend Pete Davidson.

‘Took Kim K’s order at work today. Thx for the hefty tip @KimKardashian,’ the waiter claimed next to a photo of himself posing in front of the restaurant. 

He uploaded what he claimed was a receipt for Kardashian’s $576 order – which included four $15 Caprese salads, two $19 arancini truffles, two $20 margherita pizzas and two $42 fish dishes.

Kardashian’s team clearly had a sweet tooth, as the bill also showed they ordered two slices of $16 chocolate cake and a $16 Nutella pizza. 

Despite praising the mother of four for her generosity when it came to tipping, the waiter did not disclose the exact gratuity.

‘Just finished work and have copious amounts of Kimmy fans apparently. Here’s her bill,’ he wrote next to the bill, which was timestamped at 11.58 AM on Tuesday.

‘Kimmy K diet starter pack,’ he added jokingly. 

Piccolo Cucina describes itself as ‘a traditional Italian restaurant located in the centre of Cairns’, which ‘takes pride specialising in handmade pasta and hand stretched pizza’ and supporting ‘local quality producers and their seasonal ingredients’.

It comes after the manager of another Cairns restaurant claimed to local media in June that Kardashian and Davidson had dined at his venue – but it was just a hoax.
