“Off the beaten track - great find!”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

The wine tasting and story telling just added to what was a lovely lunchtime treat. I had the pumpkin, pesto pasta with asparagus and it was spicy and scrumptious. My friend had the chicken fillets with mushroom sauce and it was delicious. This restaurant and winery is a project of love by the owners and done very well.

“A Pleasant Surprise”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

Restaurants don't need to be sophisticated to turn on a memorable dining experience.

In the case of Lazzars, the coupling of friendly proprietors, who are eager to engage with the diners, with well prepared, homestyle food, lift this winery restaurant well beyond what might be normally expected at this type of venue.

At a full-house Sunday sitting, co-host Diego was at pains to ensure that service was up to scratch, and at the same time engage in cheerful conversation about the restaurant, the wines, the food, or just about anything else you wanted to talk about.

The wines, like the food, might not be the most sophisticated that you can buy, but they are well made, and very good value.

So, what have we got? Friendly, engaging hosts, well made food and wine, and exceptionally good value . . . It's hard not to recommend Lazzars, so you had better try it for yourself.

“Excellent friendly service with a yarn.”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Almost old Balnarring. You are made to feel part of a large family here. Home cooked meals, excellent wine. Friendly hosts who are great with suggestions for wine. Highly recommend. It would be a great venue for a more informal wedding

“An absolute gem!”
Reviewed August 7, 2011

Lazzars is a boutique winery, run by a husband and wife team (Diego and Sandra). Sandra's very friendly and Diego can't do enough for you and is very passionate about his business. The service is good and the food is cooked by Sandra. The menu is not very extensive, however, the food is wholesome and delicious. The wine's not bad either. Check it out next time you're on the Mornington Peninsula. I'm not sure of the opening hrs, so better check on-line.
