Description: An authentic Italian dish always starts with the best flour, garden fresh tomatoes, and the best quality local produce. Then of course matched to a great wine. Sound simple ... We make all our own pasta and sauces from scratch , in the traditional Italian way. Our restaurant also features a glass fronted air-conditioned wine cellar where we have wines from all over the world including some rare vintage wines from local private cellars.

“Great food, poor service”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

Went to the brewery Cafe for a cocktail and a bite to eat at 8pm..Straight off the bat ordering a cocktail the waiter was rude, couldn't be bothered making the cocktail, looked like he was hitting the computer screen putting our order in, then said "it's going to take ages" I had a look in the restaurant beside the bar, had maybe 8 people in it eating main meals already. Over all, good food, however the atmosphere is lacking, and the waiters are rude.

Had lunch at the brewery and found it very nice,,the atmosphere was slow as it was off season but the service was fast and friendly,
The outside dinning area is a little worn out but the pizza were great,not your run of the mill flavors and very nice.

“Yuk, and more Yuk”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

This place was nice to sit inside but wouldn't recommend outside, the tables could do with a good clean! In the afternoon we popped in for a drink before dinner. A young man reccommended a semi sweet wine. "Thomas Wines" 6 degrees, this was very pleasant to drink. Then we went back later in the evening for dinner at the Blue Tongue Cavery, this place was nice to sit inside, we had the wine we had in the afternoon again with our dinner. However the food is not worth the money, its very overpriced. Overcooked and dry. We were staying at the Hunter Resort and were so pleased we decided not to have breakfast there too.
