Beautiful setting looking onto a pond was the perfect end to the day. I had the scallops as an entree with the cauliflower mash. Beautiful. Main was the sautéed prawns with pasta - very tasty. Only downside was the limited list of wines by the glass with no BYO option. Restaurant was well set out with Italian music to set... More

We loved the quiet country atmosphere. Very attentive but not intrusive staff and very nice Italian food that was a nice mix of healthy salads and not all carbs. They squeezed us in as we stopped in after a long days drive and we really appreciated it. The restaurant on a Tuesday night was almost full as we left around... More

This beautiful Italian restaurant does beautiful authentic homemade Italian food. As you as you walk in, you can smell the fresh pizza being cooked wafting through the air. I have have takeaway from here twice. It's one of the only places you can get takeaway pizza/pasta in Hunter Valley. I have tried a gnocchi dish which was beautiful and homemade.... More

We dined at Il Cacciatore Restaurant whilst visiting the Hunter Valley recently. This Restaurant was recommended by a friend and we were very happy with the recommendation. Dining choices in the Hunter Valley are wide and varied. On the night we dined the Restaurant was quite busy and at some tables, second sittings were happening. We would advise making a... More

We had a great night at ll Cacciatore. The grilled barramundi my wife had was cooked perfectly and my seafood pasta was fresh, spicey and delicious. The staff were friendly and efficient, our meals were served in no time at all and the cost for our meals was very reasonable. We can recommend ll Cacciatore to anyone visiting the Hunter... More

We came here for a quiet dinner on a Monday night. We chose to sit in a quieter part of the restaurant up the front where we had nice views of the garden lights. Entrees: Beef carpaccio and seared scallops. Both were really nice and around the $20 mark. Mains: Chicken Fettuccini and Veal Marsala. Both in the mid $30... More

We arrived in Pokolbin and this place was the first open so had no expectations. Food was pretty good nice atmosphere given it was raining outside. Generally impressed with the place.

We loved this restaurant. Really fresh food, quickly prepared and served by friendly, helpful staff. I had the gnocchi for a main, and it was without a doubt the best gnocchi I have tasted in my life. But everything that we tried on the menu was delicious. We had a table next to the deck, which was nice, with the... More
