Italian
A family run winery nestled in the foothills of the King valley. Established in 1987 by Otto Dal Zotto, the winery has been at the forefront of innovation throughout its history. Namely, as the first Prosecco in Australia, planted in 1999. Sticking to tradition, there is now a wide selection of Prosecco, including our Col Fondo and "Tabelo" Col Fondo which draws back to the Dal Zotto family roots in Valdobbiadene: the home of Prosecco in Italy. The Dal Zotto selection has grown from the original Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Now, home to more Italian varieties such as Arneis, Barbera, Fiano, Garganega, Nebbiolo and Sangiovese. Complementing the increase in offering, the Trattoria was established, producing handmade, Italian inspired meals. The Dal Zotto family lives and works by the credo of family, tradition and innovation and with a third generation becoming involved in the vineyard, cellar door, kitchen garden and events, it seems there is plenty more to come.

From the time we walked in, we felt welcome. The service was very pleasant/friendly. The food was beautiful, we couldn’t eat everything and took the left overs home and my husband also enjoyed the food. We recommend people to eat there today, because we enjoyed the experience so much. Thank you Dalzotto’s

Wouldn’t order the pizza- my gf base was doughy / undercooked.
The wine tasting next door was excellent though.

We enjoyed a wine tasting afterwards which was very relaxed and informative.

Such a great spot for lunch!
Pizza was fantastic, service was next to none and their Prosecco was delicious!
Highly recommend for those wanting to have a pit spot between wine tastings in the king valley.
We will be back.

Best pizza anywhere in this region. Only complaint is the music - why have loud "doof doof" music in this lovely Italian Trattoria? Just some lovely Dean Martin or Frank Sinatra accompanying their lovely food would improve my ambience rating from good to excellent!

The food was absolutely delicious, we had the fresh Gnocchi with a cheese sauce and the Smoked Trout Spaghetti. We asked David the Sommelier to match wines with our meal and both wines were superb and went with our meals perfectly. David also suggested some areas to visit whilst in the area which we appreciated.
There was a definite let-down with the table service however. We were over looked for our order to be taken, customers arriving after us were ordering beforehand. Dirty cutlery was not replaced after our first course, it was taken from our dirty plate and placed on the table ready for our main meal.
We had to ask for some cracked pepper…after what seemed a long while, we asked again as the waitress had forgotten. When delivering a meal, our expectation is to ask if cracked pepper is required. The day we ate was a busy lunch period, however these small details would have elevated our experience.

We enjoyed our two pizzas although, in truth, they were nothing outstanding. The desert my husband ordered was OK but did not match the description on the menu. The service was prompt and helpful. It was a very cold night when we were there and the dining room was not particularly warm. We had to ask to be moved to another table to avoid cold draughts, as did two other couples.

A very special place, not lunch it's an experience.
