Reservations recommended but not required.
For over almost 20 years, Zambri’s has been fortunate enough to serve Victorians Italian soul food paired with all the best wines of Italy. We’ve grown as Victoria has grown, but at our heart, we have remained true to our roots. Eighteen years of working with local farmers, being a contributing member of our local community, caring for the environment (we are carbon neutral), hosting Italian wine dinners and always making sure that our vision for our food stays true, have brought us to the place we are now.
Join us for lunch or dinner, sit on our sunny patio, come for one our monthly wine dinners, or have your next event in one of our gorgeous private spaces... Come see for yourself!
Loved it all- food, decor and service. Thanks Krista for your top notch and charismatic energy!
Always great food and impeccable service. COVID-19 adjustments make it feel safe and comfortable. Highly recommended.
WE enjoyed our evening very much. Will be back soon.
Delicious food! Awesome service! Thank you for being open during these times.
As always Zambri's was first rate - but I wish they kept their old bread maker not the new version which is inferior
Great food and service, although the menu choices are small. We sat out in the atrium which is great for Covid, but lacks coziness.
We have supported Zambri's since the spring shutdown and are never disappointed. The food is excellent and the service good too. I gave the service a less than excellent rate as I don't like servers leaning in during this time, I prefer the food set at the edge of the table. Although it's not good for the owners, I like the set-up where there are less tables and more space, the overall noise level is much reduced and conversation is easier. Zambri's spread out into the Atrium, my preferred place to sit during the pandemic. And each eating area was full, great to see so many out to enjoy great food and ambience.
We went for a special going away celebration. It was my first time. Everything was top notch. I had the lasagne and was really blown away. I will most definitely be going back very soon. The online reso system was great, too. Perfect evening!
The food wasn't very good considering the price we paid. Our server seemed distracted and we often had to wait when we needed things.
Fod and service was great
My neighbor place. Warm, friendly and knowledgeable staff.
Consistently great food.
Great Happy hour!
Thoughtful COVID processes
I feel safe, cared for and valued.
As third time returnees, and one of the few Italian restaurants that we patronize( outside of Italy) the evening was wonderful. The restaurant was well organized for CoVid distancing, without being obtrusive. Seated promptly with our reservation( recommended) . Staff knowledgeable and with warm friendliness.
Food service was efficient, and arrived as described. Delicious. Nice reasonable wine selection and our server has her WSET 3 training, and was able to assist and confirm our choice.
A great evening for myself and my date. Service was great. Wine recommendation was very tasty, and the food was perfectly prepared (Cesare salad, Spaghetti Aglio Olio Peperoncino, meatballs and Chicken Parmigiana).
Zambri's is a special experience, excellent cuisine in an elegant setting. There's lots of ambiance, a superb menu always perfectly prepared and served, and lots of time to enjoy fine appertifs, delicious appetizer or dolce, even an affigato. An exquisite melange of food, fun and good company - a Victoria establishment worth returning to again and again.
Food was excellent, fast service.
The food and service was incredible. I'll be back on Dec 5th with some girlfriends:)
Beautifully executed COVID plan with great spacing of tables, made our evening feel safe and almost normal. The mushroom soup was divine, and every meal was enjoyed fully.
Great meal and excellent service. I'll be back! Thanks
I love Zambri's: it's great location downtown, many windows and beautiful decor, delicious well priced Italian food and drinks, and extra friendly service:)
Always a great experience. Wonderful menu selection and everything served hot and fresh. The chef's do an amazing jobs with the flavours. Wonderful, friendly staff and a great atmosphere. We will always come back.
Our evening was absolutely amazing! Thank you Zambri’s!
I love Zambri’s, but unfortunately this visit wasn’t very good. For my meal, I didn’t like the duck, it took an hour to arrive and was very very rare. The potatoes that came along with the dish were cooked so hard they could hardly be eaten with a fork, and our meal took two hours to complete even though other tables turned over a couple times when we were there. We only had a main and a shared dessert. We were not offered a reason that the service was so slow, just that the server had to keep requesting the food.
We had a great night! Food was excellent and staff was super fun and friendly.
Zambris is a very special restaurant in the food scene in and around Victoria. The food is always excellent, and the staff are warm and welcoming. One of our favourite spots.
Had an amazing dinner with our 4 year old- we hadn’t been out in a long time and our dinner was amazing!! (The meatballs and pasta also got a giant thumbs up from our daughter!)
Fair service, nice environment, everything in place for nice experience ,but an Italian restaurant that runs out of half of its menu at 2030 on Friday night....... and does not advise clients before they are seated & have already ordered drinks.....We would have l left.
Excellent as always! And I love dining in the indoor seating of the Atrium.
Naomi’s service is always excellent. The social distancing is well managed.
Zambris is a regular spot for us with yummy food.
The only restaurant I have gone to in Victoria in 12 years
food and service were terrific! a lovely ambience
it took awhile before our orders were taken. The waitress though was really nice
Every time we go to Zambri's we wonder why we can get a seat at all. The food is crazy good, the service top drawer and it's a lovely space to spend time in. Truly a Victoria gem!
Limited menu with the pandemic
Service very good
Will go back
We waited 15 min for a server to take our order, 45 min for our salads to arrive ( my husband had the worst Caesar salad which looked like iceberg lettuce, bottled dressing and a few huge croutons and shaved Parmesan, mine was a passable cabbage salad with shredded cabbage and a warm dressing, followed by another 25 min wait for our pizza, good crust but otherwise tasteless.
I felt for the waitress who was apologetic but the wait and quality of the food was very disappointing . Never will we waste our money there again.
Price is high for what you get. Service to good, but in slow motion. Appetizer was very tiny. Throw in some bread or rolls at minimum. All we had was pasta, not sure why bill was a 100.00.
enjoyed company, so not a big deal. Better places for less money in Victoria.
A very special occasion made even more so with great and friendly service, and good food!
A reduced and limited menu due to Covid was a little disappointing
The restaurant was too dark to read the menu or see the food properly. Menu is quite limited. My guest recalled visiting this restaurant in the past 24 months and seeing an extensive menu. The wine list is also very limited but the wines on the list are excellent. There was no one at the front of the restaurant when we arrived. We had to wait for wait staff to notice us and then the group behind us were seated first.
Our waitress was personable once engaged but that took a while.
My diet is restricted as I cannot digest dairy and there was only one item on the menu that worked for me. Another item was adjusted for me.
Excellent in every respect
Clean flavourful food
