Hermitage Lodge

Il Cacciatore Italian Restaurant, Hunter Valley

Hermitage Lodge’s award-winning restaurant ‘Il Cacciatore’ specialises in Northern Italian inspired cuisine. Il Cacciatore has long been a favourite with visitors and locals alike. The ambience is relaxed and casual and the service is professional, friendly and attentive.

The North of Italy is home to the world-famous white truffle, Parmesan cheese, Parma ham, Balsamic vinegar, Barolo and Chianti wines, and of course, it produces some of the finest olive oils in the world. Our menu embraces all Northern Italy has to offer. Some menu items have been simplified or adapted to today’s taste and way of life, then carefully tested and ‘tasted’.

The key to good Italian food is freshness. There are no second bests and no Italian chef would even contemplate preparing a dish without the best quality, freshest ingredients. The seasonal menu takes advantage of fresh local produce, authentic Italian ingredients and house made pastas. Il Cacciatore is fully licensed, with full bar service, and a wine list showcasing some of the Hunter’s best wines.

Il Cacciatore also has a second dining area and a spacious adjoining deck, which overlooks the landscaped reed-lined lake. Perfect for al fresco dining, it is also available for private dinners or cocktail parties.

Adjacent to the restaurant is the cosy guest lounge featuring plush sofas and fire during winter where diners can enjoy a pre-dinner drink or after dinner coffee and port.
