Our Italian Table is located in the beautiful Nicita Estate in the heart of the Hunter Valley.  Nestled amongst the vines, with views in all directions, you will experience a moment of true serenity as you surrender yourself to the aromas of the kitchen.

Following a dream to provide an environment where guests can fill their glass, enjoy chatter and laughter with friends, learn something new and then gather around the table for a shared meal, Our Italian Table was created.

Jen Nicita has been involved in the food and training industries for over twenty years.  She now invites you to join her in the kitchen and then at her table, enjoying the feasts of local produce and wine, whilst enjoying the breathtaking scenery surrounding you.
