We ate here this morning and it was absolutely amazing! We had the ravioli and the chefs special for the pizza and it was so incredible. I wish they shipped to Australia ;) Wonderful service and cosy place. Thank you!

We randomly came across Lazzara's whilst walking aimlessly trying to find something to eat after getting off our long haul flight. From the outside in is unassuming and could be missed all together. We entered slightly dubiously not sure what to expect, but on arriving...More

Mixed impressions of this place. The service was quite slow - the wait staff seemed hard pressed to keep up at times, though our server was very nice. Our salad starter was tasty - a twist on Caprese, with sweet pieces of roasted red peppers...More
