Very beautiful place, the pizza were amazing, Dessert was very nice too. Staff very friendly. The only thing is the seating arrangement. We made booking and came early the whole place were still empty and they sat us down at the corner of the room with no much view. It would be nice to offer the customer specially if they arrived early and so many good spot still available whether they want to have a table with the view or not. But overall was a good experience.

My experience here was the upsetting lowlight of a weekend away with family. Food was terrible and insultingly overpriced - the profit margins they are generating by selling undercooked, slopped together share plates is just plain rude. All staff seemed to me underaged and untrained. We waited over 20 minutes to be served drinks and had to ask multiple times for water. Well over 200 people on site; loud, crowded and unpleasant. The outside dining area stank of sewage, we had to ask to move as the smell was making it impossible to eat. I paid my bill in full at the end of the lunch, but after leaving they later realised they had undercharged me. Their response was to aggressively harass me via email and accuse me of being a thief and threaten to sue me! Absolutely wild. This whole experience has left me shaken. Please, please go anywhere in Yarra Valley other than here! 🤢

We had been to Zonzo a few times. This experience was not great as we were placed on the end of a table and felt like we were in a revolving door as we tried to celebrate our daughters birthday. The food was fine but the quality of table service was poor. It looked like the entire floor had work experience kids. Wanted to take our plates before we had finished and then another course were our plates were not removed after we had finished the main course. The pouring of wine was not professional and Zonzo has lost its polish….as I fear the commercialisation of what was a great product is now second rate. If the quality reduces…..then so should the prices charged. A small tip to the owners…..a business survives on quality as well as quantity…unfortunately this experience was not good. I would recommend consideration of other wineries or Red Hill as alternatives as Zonzo Estate has certainly lost its shine. Won’t be back and will not be recommending unfortunately.

Zonzo Estate is just out of the township of Yarra Glen, the heart of the Yarra Valley. Zonzo Estate serves traditional Italian cuisine, such as roast lamb and pizza. The vineyard is well-established and planted with Italian varietals, which make excellent food wines. "Scoperta" is Italian for "discover." Verdecchio is a white Italian grape variety that originated in Central Italy. The wine has been crafted in the Yarra Valley to produce a wine with salty, citrus notes, with a crisp finish. Verdicchio has a surprisingly high alcohol content for a dry white. Verdicchio goes well with strongly-flavored Italian food.

This restaurant and winery is situated in the scenic Yarra Valley. Zonzo's wines are well-known for their quality. The diverse menu is Mediterranean style, including things such as pizzas. The restaurant is well set up, it's a great place to sample the fruit of the vine. Zonzo is in the heart of the Yarra Valley, it's around an hour's drive from Melbourne.
