Dinner: Tues-Sat 5:00-9:00
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!
Wonderful date night and food was great! Covid protocols were well implemented. All staff wore masks and wiped all surfaces when people left. Dine around menu was good value!
I found the noise level in the restaurant loud and it was difficult to hear our friends even with fewer tables because of COVID. I would recommend some noise mediation strategy
Thank you for the stars Kerry. Our main room does get quite noisy on busy nights. May we suggest requesting the Atrium area on your next visit as it is much quieter. Hope to see you soon!
Great service. Food is reliably good, nothing to blow you away though.
Menu could use an update. Great neighborhood restaurant, will continue visiting for years.
Thank you for the stars Bryan! We are happy to hear we are your neighbourhood spot. Pleaste note that we will be expanding our menu after Dine Around in a few weeks, and will always have our daily feature sheet on the go. See you soon!
This is a pizza and pasta joint pretending to be a higher end Italian restaurant. Menu is almost entirely, you guessed it , pizza and pasta with no effort to accommodate gluten intolerant customers other than some gluten free penne , which is not even mentioned on the menu. We asked for an salad appetizer on the fixed menu to try and make it work , however waiter wasn’t prepared to sell it to us separately without us paying the full fixed menu price.
In the end we left without eating .
This is inaccurate. You left without giving our staff who are trained professionals the chance to go over all of the gluten free options for you. We are always happy to accommodate allergies and dietary restrictions. We feel this to be an illegitimate review as you did not actually eat here. If we were prentending we would not be around after 21 years, with such a loyal following of amazing guests. Sincerely, Jayme@zambris.ca
We had a terrific experience at last night's dinner, as we have had many times at Zambris. Their Atrium "patio" seating is such a treat, the food and cocktails delicious, and we recieved lovely and thoughtful service. We are always recommending this place to others. Thanks for all the lovely evenings, Zambris!
Thank you for the kind words! We appreciate it.
Always enjoy a good meal at Zambri's, excellent wine, excellent service, excellent food. I've been dozens of times and never been dissappointed.
Went for happy hour but no one had updated the online happy hour menu as it was their first day open after holidays. New menu only had a few items. Was going to order from dinner menu but the kitchen had run out of pizza. Servers were amazing and tried to come up with solutions. Ended up getting bread and broccoli but drinks were good!
We’ve been twice now and both times the food and service have been perfect.
It seems that their pick up and take out service is very busy. We had to wait quite a while for our in restaurant meal.
The bar tender was our server as well and he was super busy.
Challenging times, however; people who have taken the time and safety risks to come to the restaurant should be given first priority, for now and for future business.
Awesome and great gluten free options. Waiter was great and price was fair
We visited Zambris for a holiday special dinner and did the pre set menu special they had. The dinner was excellent, especially the (house) wine and the tiramisu was the best I’d ever had.
- food was extraordinary...memorable in fact
- ambiance was also fabulous
- will go back in a nano-second!
Your food and service are both always great and we will come again in the future.
Food and service was amazing as always. You just can't go wrong with the Caesar salad, agliollio and penned with peas. Can't wait to go back!
Everything tasted great with the exception of the chanterelle dish. These morsels are too delicate to be coated and deep fried but the sage butter accompaniment and slivered prosciutto went a long way to bolster the appetizer
Another lovely evening at Zambris. Of course, with COVID they were up to standard for protocols. It was extra special to be going out and spending an enjoyable evening to “get away from it all”. Fantastic food, wine, ambiance and company.
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.
