You could easily spend a couple of weeks exploring what the Hunter Valley has to offer but if you happen to love Italian food then you cannot afford to miss dining at Il Cacciatore. I'm not Italian but I have spent 4 years with a Sicilian family and know what real Italian food should be. Possibly the best seafood linguine... More

On a girls weekend we decided to get takeaway pizza. We had so many different dietary requirements and ingredient preferences. The restaurant catered to all 9 individual pizza request without hesitation.

Arrived in the Hunter hungry and the word of advice here seems to be book a restaurant in this region - we did not and that posed a challenge This place was just something we drive by and tried.

Very clean looking restaurant with good staff. There food was ok, they try to make this into some king of fine dining but it's short of that mark. I thought I could have a pizza but they only have that for take away, which I found unusual. Our mains were fine chicken a little dry and my seafood a bit... More

Beautiful food and decor and has a gorgeous view of the vineyard. Celebrated my 40th birthday dinner and I'm so glad I did. Food was perfect as was the service. There is no kids menu after 6:30 so check with the restaurant when you book as they may be able to work something out. Can't wait to come back. Great... More

My partner and I had just checked in at our accomodation and decided to search for a nice holiday restaurant. We called up Il Cacciatore at 6:30 and made a booking for 7pm the same night - when we got there we sat outside on the deck just in front of the water fountain and it was spectacular. The food...

We found this restaurant by accident. The service was amazing and very professional. The choice of dishes was good. When our food arrived it was well presented and delicious. We discovered they also have rooms to stay. We will be going back and staying this time.

Going here for our first nights dinner I had much anticipation due to our stay at the joining "hermitage lodge" but I must say I was pleasantly surprised by the high quality of the food and ambiance of the restaurant. Would definitely recommend to other people and only had one criticism of which was the Angus steak I ordered medium,... More
