Massive serves that will not disappoint. The pasta is great, and the numerous awards confirm what a great little place this is to dine.

We stop over at Il Cacciatore for takeaway pizza each visit to the Hunter. The staff (Nicole and Sheree) are very welcoming and eager to please. This time as before, I added a few King Prawns to my favourite meaty pizzas and they were eager to oblige and even offered me a taste of a new wine while I waited.... More

Was recommended by a friend to try this restaurant.. Told me it was very nice Italian restaurant... And he was right! The restaurant had a very comfy feel to it. The staff were very friendly. Our waiter even adjusted a entrée for us to suit what we were after. Even gave us a tip to check out a local winery.... More

It is attached to Hermitage Lodge, where we stayed, so didn't have to venture far from our room on a cold winter's night.

Be guided by the staff recommendations, but lean toward the traditional Italian fare. Why would you go to the Hunter Valley and order North Queensland barramundi?

We dined in Il Cacciatore on Friday night with a couple of friends.
