Our experience at Zambri's was very disappointing. We arrived a few minutes early for our reserved table; the restaurant was very quiet with perhaps no more than 3 or 4 tables filled. The woman who greeted us took us to a table which obviously needed clearing and gestured over her shoulder and said, your table is over there, and then proceeded to clear the table. I said, do you mean this table and she didn't respond, just continued clearing the other table. So we took our seats at a table that was set.
Unbelievable really....
Our server did a reasonably good job, although requests for a side plate went unanswered, which made it a challenge to eat the bread and olives which were offered. They were excellent, by the way. Two of our party ordered gnocchi and it was good. The third member of our party ordered a pasta dish with a gorgonzola sauce and stated that altho' the sauce was a good basic cream sauce, she couldn't discern the gorgonzola at all.
Overall, the experience was less than positive. It was a birthday celebration and definitely not a good choice.This is my fourth visit to Zambri's and each time I have hoped that I would be 'wowed', as it has such a good reputation.
I will not be returning. There are too many other good restaurants in the city.
Thanks for the opportunity to review.

I have bee eating at Zambris every time I am in town.Really enjoyed the food at the old location
The menu now is good,not great.Not a lot of Italian traditional dishes,but perhaps that's not the style any more.
Still one of the better restaurants in Victoria.

While the food is usually good, the service on the last three visits has been poor. On our last visit we sat for 45 minutes with only bread rolls before our cocktails even arrived. Multiple people serving the table resulted in incorrect orders, which were hastily corrected on the bill when I was noticed scrutinizing it by one of the wait staff. I used to like Zambri’s but will not return

Prompt, friendly, Excellent service. We always enjoy eating at Zambris- even though it is a bit more of a special occassion to dine out, the prices are reasonable considering the efficient service and wonderful ambiance. Food is great too. Our favorite is the Salcisca(spelling?) Pizza. Yumm!!

Zambris is my go-to place for business lunches. Not so much for dinner. Here’s why, after 2 recent visits:
- Service wasn’t as attentive as at lunch (e.g., filling of water took ages, tea arrived tepid)
- Setting sun hits you directly in your eyes - and there doesn’t seem to be an easy solution
- Food is expensive - no half portions or kids’ menu
- Not enough choice for salads or low-carb options, whereas there are lots (meatballs are amazing) on the lunch menu

Our group of 8 had a wonderful time at Zambri’s. The restaurant had a great ambiance, and the food was amazing. The service was impeccable; we couldn’t have been more pleased.
