My partner and I ate dinner here as it was at the resort we were staying. We had the cheesey garlic starter which was like a pizza and delicious. I had the chicken parma which was great and he had the spicy chicken pizza which was good. I had cosmos all night which were delicious. All in all a satisfying... More

The lasting impression of San Martino was that 1 course from the mains menu was ample which was unusual. My wife and I were on a deal that included a two course meal along with a glass a wine and we struggled to have a small entrée plus main. Missed out on the wine as I was driving. Service was...

The wait staff were very inattentive and the waiting time for anything was so long. Waited 15 mins for water, an hour for food when there were only 6 small tables, I noticed some people waiting a ridiculously long time to order desert when really common sense should remind the waiter to return in a few minutes. The restaurant wasn't... More

When we arrived we were promptly seated, the restuarant was lovely but it seemed that the staff were not that interested in being there, though they were polite just the time to take the order was very long as it was for the meal to be...

Just down the road from our accommodation, so it was the easiest and most affordable place to get to. That said, the steak was on par with some of the finest resteraunts in the valley. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. Would go there again

Went to the restaurant for dinner ordering the three little pigs pizza which comprised of a burnt pizza base, chunks of white gluggy pig fat and very little other toppings over all had no taste. The second main ordered was the Tuscan lamb shoulder with gnocci this meal was served just warm but mostly cold. This meal also had little... More

Had ham bacon and pork pizza. Pizza was thin and burnt on the crust. There was a lack of toppings on the pizza and the 'pork' was just bits of mushy fat. Not worth $5 let alone $19.50. Would not go back.

Let me start by saying we didn't make a reservation, but this was no issue for the wonderful staff, who found us a table. The food was delicious and our two boys (5 and 2) demolished their pizzas with no complaints at all. The restaurant is well positioned and very family friendly, I would have no hesitation in recommending this... More

We had a hankering for Italian food on this first night of our stay in the Hunter Valley. My husband, daughter and myself all ordered the pasta dishes and were definitely not disappointed. Service was quick and staff were most friendly. Would definitely recommend this eatery to friends and family.

Came here for lunch with work the pasta was so amazing, my only issue was I couldn't eat it all and I really wanted to I was just so full. Everyone in the group enjoyed the meal and it was so nice to sit by the fire and enjoy the wine and atmosphere
