Gregorio Lazzarini (1657 – November 10, 1730) was an Italian painter, mostly of religious subjects, and those from history and mythology.

Born in Venice, he initially trained with the Genovese painter Francesco Rosa, Girolamo Forabosco, and with the studio of Pietro della Vecchia. He joined the painters' guild in Venice in 1687. Lazzarini lived most of his life in the republic. He was the brother of the proficient painter, Elisabetta Lazzarini (1662–1729). Some of his paintings decorate the Sala dello Scrutinio of the Doge’s Palace. A group of his paintings are on view inside the Sala S. Tommaso at the SS. Giovanni e Paolo basilica. He also painted a San Lorenzo Giustiniani for the Patriarcal house. He is best known for training Giambattista Tiepolo, who joined his workshop at fourteen in 1710.

Lazzarini died in Villabona Veronese in 1730.
