“Excellent Northern Italian Cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

Atmosphere is certainly Italian. The food was great, very well cooked gnocchi and perfect 'blue' eye-steak.

“Superb food but not cheap.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

Wonderful place with a slightly old-fashioned appearance. Excellent quality food, wine and service which made for a great evening for our group of 10. Better value, food-wise, than other more publicised restaurants.

“A great dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012 via mobile

Innovative, unpretentious food superbly presented. If Italian is what you might be craving while in the Hunter, this is the place to go.

“Lovely evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

This was one of our favourite meals in the Hunter Valley...lovely food, great service, good wine list and nice atmosphere...

We were surprised to find such a good more contemporary Italian restaurant here...no pizzas to be seen! Horray!

“Amazing Food!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

The food is absolutely amazing, and the restaurant thoroughly deserves all the awards it has garnered over the years. It is not the cheapest place to dine, but you will not be disappointed.
