Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Enjoyed yet another wonder lunch today at our favourite Winery. As a group of 6, it was the first time for 2 friends - 1 who is gluten free. Absolutely perfect. 10/10.
The new fixed menu is just delicious, with the highest quality ingredients & perfectly matched with wines made at their cold climate vineyard. We love the Italian varietals and the honest, homecooked style dishes are spot one.
Couldn't recommend more highly. As usual, the service was exceptional.
Wish we'd taken photo's to post but we were having too much of a great time! Loaded our cars with cases of delish wines.

The food, the service, the location, the wine and the ambience were outstanding.
Unfortunately we sat downstairs, next time we will specifically ask to sit upstairs to enjoy the fantastic views!

There was no waiting for anything, the service was exceptional we will definitely return to sit upstairs.

10 out of 10!

Had an amazing family celebration here and it was FANTASTIC. Be sure to book in as it is a boutique Italian vibe and whilst they are very accommodating every time I've been in they are always full and run off their feet. Even though, they are working hard, lethal Leisel and her stellar crew always have a smile and warm welcome for everyone that walks through the hefty cellar door.

Food is distinctly North Italian casa-linga. Think Antonio Carluccio rustic feasts, with big platters of cured meats, seasonal veggies, fresh salads, creamy sides, slow-roasted meats and sweet desserts that go well with an espresso or another glass of wine.

My only disappointment is that my fav wines Ribolla Gialla and the Sangiovese are only temporary fixtures in the wine line up and you need to go every other month to check what they have stock. The wine is definitely worth it when you find a variety to your liking, remember though it's a boutique and everything is limited supply. First-world problems if you don't mind a scenic drive up the mountain

My gf (in a wheelchair) was turned around from entering the inside area during rain because ‘our tables are full’. I was shocked to the core. Diners also share the road with cars passing to access parking. You’ll see…

Hey Trev, sorry to hear you had a bad experience. Unfortunately all of our tables were fully booked inside and this is why we were not able to accomodate you. We’d love to see you again and make it up to you. Please be sure to make a booking in the future so we’re able to accomodate your every need.

Well, this really was the most fabulous experience ! Planning a walk in the Macedon Ranges with our dog, we were hoping to find a winery/restaurant that would be able to allow us to dine with our four legged friend. Pleased to say that Nick responded quickly to my email and at relatively short notice was able to accommodate us, despite being heavily booked as the winery was hosting the Festa dell Estate that weekend.

We opted for an early arrival at 11.30am, rather soaked after a very wet mountain hike, ahead of our 12 noon lunch booking. Adam was the most delightful host, immediately looking after us and getting us onto the wines. The Ribola Gialla was so good that we bought a bottle (not usually white drinkers) and the Negroamara and Lagrein were superb - leading to a purchase of a further four bottles.

Next came some tastings from the nearby excellent Mountain distillery - firstly their vodka… wow - vodka has improved since my teenage years ! Then the three Mountain gins - leading to a purchase of the Original and the LapaLux - a stunning gin with strong star anise flavours.

Despite the damp conditions we were able to sit outside and opted for the antipasto plate which was terrific (see picture), rocket salad and fritters. The excellent breads served with oil and salt was a big plus. The food was plentiful and absolutely spot on. All three of us loved every bit of it.

Over the next two hours we sat and dined wonderfully, loved the views over the vines, enjoyed the terrific band (who kindly offered to turn the volume down a little), and enjoyed a few more glasses of wine, vodka and ended with a couple of very tasty lattes.

A final word for the staff. Every one of them was polite, attentive, engaging and professional. A special shout out to Nick, and Adam in particular for taking us through the wines and gins and general entertaining and looking after us. Our dog was made to feel very welcome which went a long way to helping us relax and enjoy.

Can’t recall a more enjoyable lunch and tasting experience. Very happy to highly recommend and we’ll definitely be back !

Terrific Italian food and extra Mount Towrong wines. Very welcoming. Friendly staff. Delicious meatballs. Rocket walnut salad and haloumi dish were divine. Water appeared on the table frequently without needing to ask. We will be back!

My wife and I were very excited to be visiting Mount Towrong for lunch today. The person at the door was very welcoming and although we arrived early for some wine tasting this service was not available because of COVID restrictions.
Disappointing but understandable we were politely directed to our reserved table.

First the wine. A very pleasant red at very reasonable price started our day perfectly.
Service. Very professional and polite plus good timing to ask if we were ready to order.
Timing. Within ten minutes of ordering our Authentic Italian meatballs were presented at the table. We were amazed at the speed our meals appeared however it may be a reasonable assumption that this type of meal can be prepared earlier.

Meal and the most important part of our visit.
Here is the let down. The meatballs were dry, tasteless and lacking in any kind of Italian authenticity.
My wife organised this lunch and I was reluctant to say anything to her however she was the first to express her disappointment in the meal. I was very relieved when I realised it was just not me being too critical.
Dessert. Chocolate cake with cream. Very nice cake however served warm would have been much better.
Overall lots to admire about the service,ambience and wine. Food however which is what this restaurant has built its reputation on was sadly lacking and very disappointing.

A disappointing experience.
Visited for a special occasion. My chair collapsed on me the moment I sat on it, (I am of average weight). I understand that wine is to some extent a personal experience and this was explained to me when I was unimpressed with the sparkling wine and had the wait staff take it away discreetly. We ordered food, which was well presented and I ordered a wine to accompany my meal. The wine did not show and I reminded a wait staff. Again the wine did not come and I had the experience of lunch at a winery where I could not obtain a wine. On paying I spoke to management and I was told that no-one had complained before and asked to identify where I was from. I explained my dissatisfaction with the sparkling I tried and told this was a personal preference again and then asked to identify by name or face the wait staff I had ordered from, I find this beyond the pale. I explained to management that my complaint has to be 'owned' by them and had to repeat this to them. Please take this constructively.
