We enjoyed a lovely dinner here with the family. The meal of choice was the salmon and pasta . The staff were very good . Paid $5 per plate service for birthday cake and that was reasonable as we had the cake delivered direct to the restaurant. This is a lovely venue especially overlooking the lake .

Walked in without booking as staying nearby. Loads of free tables and we were met with the old "have you a reservation ?" "I'll just go and see if we have a free table" routine. As it happens people were leaving and so a tiny wait for the table to be prepared and we were in. We walked by about... More

The ladies (and some gents somewhere I'm guessing) that run this awesome Hunter Valley gem are super attentive & lovely. The food is DEVINE and every plate for all four of us was delicious (x10!) The gorgeous deck over the little lake was such a beautiful setting. You guys made it to the #1 highlight of our holiday!! We'll be... More

A party of ten enjoyed a good meal here recently with very acceptable food and brisk service. Like all the Hunter, a bit in the pricey side but well worth a visit. Notable also for being open on a Monday evening.

My family & I ordered takeaway pizza & pasta as I read in the Hunter mag that they were known for great pizza. Pizza was extremely oily! It was a tag pricey considering the quality.

Let me start by saying I'm not the kind of person who enjoys complaining when a meal isn't great. I'm generally happy to let the little things ride. However our visit to Il Cacciatore was nothing short of disappointing. While our entree (zucchini flowers) were hot and tasty, my main (beef fillet) was overcooked. I had asked for medium but...

Dined at Il Cacciatore on New Year's Eve with my wife and a another couple of friends. We all decided to have an entree, main and desert and were all very happy with all of our meals. The service was very pleasant and meals came out pretty quick. My favourite was the Nutella doughnuts. It's the 4th or 5th time... More
