The food was very good if a little pricey. Really nice atmosphere and close to movie theatres.

Wonderful spot to sit and enjoy an exceptional meal before a movie or just on a casual date night. The Caesar salad is to die for and the service is excellent. Good wine selection. Definitely recommended.

Great spot for a casual get-together downtown. The menu offers something for everyone. We visited on a Saturday afternoon, just after 1:00. It was a good thing we had a reservation for our party of six.

Subpar execution. Menu sounds good. Quality not there. Funny to read the owner responses to negative reviews. Further emphasizes that they just don’t get it.

We booked our reservation for the first time using open table. I appreciated the email reminder about the date and time.

We arrived at the restaurant and were seated within minutes. It was nice that we were given a choice of seating locations. Naturally we picked the closest one to the bar.

Our waiter attended to us promptly and we settled on some drinks and a starter Cesare salad. He recommended we just split one salad because it was large enough for two.

Our order was taken for the entree and we both enjoyed our meals. My partner loved his crispy pork shoulder. I thought that my dish, chicken with potatoes and Tomato sauce was missing something as far as seasoning but it was still good. The olives were very tasty.

During the course of our meal we were served and attended to by a about 5 people. It’s obvious that they work well as a team.
A shout out to the waitress who paired a perfect wine for my meal. It was indeed full-bodied and a nice compliment to the meal.

Thank you for making our Valentine’s Day a special day.

Our appetizer was a delicious eggplant 'cannoli', which was amazing as usual.

We split an entree of Pescato del Giorno - rock fish with a potato and baccala crust- which was a little disappointing. It wasn't up to the usual excellent standard we have come to know and expect. The puree sauce that covered the dish appeared to be a taupe colour, which wasn't very appealing and the crust on the fish was similar in colour and appeal. It tasted a bit under-done and altogether a bit mushy. We will be back but may be a little less adventurous next time.

Our server made an excellent wine recommendation and staff were friendly and attentive as always. Much thanks to the gaol behind the bar who understands how a sincere 'goodnight can make a customer feel special.

We were visiting Victoria for just a couple of nights and so glad we chose to check out Zambri's. Food was delicious, the pork was especially mouthwatering. Highly recommend!

Zambri's definitely deserves a place among Victoria's best restaurants. Carefully made authentic Italian food, well served with knowledgable staff, custom dining options, great ambience, not cheap but decent pricing.

Painfully long wait for lunch food. (1hour)! Ignored by host upon arrival . Stood waiting as phone conversation continued- no eye contact acknowledgement . Disappointing service . Very good food but that in it self doesn’t make a restaurant nice to be at

Good atmosphere and great service. None of the food tasted freshly made. Congealed parpadelle cream sauce, Medium temperature lamb/lentils and the creme brule was just okay. Overall, not worth the money and I regret not dining out somewhere else. I could have done this better at home. At least the beer was cold.

We went to Zambri’s on a date for their dine around menu, we chose the $40 selection and I got the lamb. I did not care for it, I found the meat tough and difficult to cut with a steak knife. As well as drowned in the tomato sauce it was served in. It tasted more Czech than Italian. There was also a fair amount of gristle in the lamb chops, I would say more than average. If I were to go back I would try their pasta dishes, I hear that they are excellent. Overall service and the ambience was wonderful.

5 stars to our Server. I am embarrassed to forget her name: Serena? Sampherna? Oh dear. We have brought friends 3 Times this month when she has served us impeccably.
She is studying bio-psychology at Uvic. The brunch menu is unique so we have taken foodies on Sundays for brunch. And Ms S.
Has been a super host.

Thanks

good food and great service by the fellow who served us. Unfortunately, we were rushed. Even though we had a reservation, we were told by the person who seated us that we would only have the table for 1 1/2 hours. Clearly not a place to go and linger over a meal.
