The Café Brio, located in Victoria, has been a local favorite for twenty six years, serving up a rustic, Italian inspired menu. Focusing on regional products, Café Brio led by multi awarded Chef Sam Harris selects the highest quality ingredients from local sources to be used in authentic, creative dishes.

At Café Brio, everything is prepared in house. Pasta favorites include gnocchi with roasted leeks, parmesan cream and basil purée, Spaghettini with tomato, garlic, basil, olive oil and parmigiano and also our wild mushroom risotto. From the Sea enjoy seared scallops with peroxides, delicata squash, carmelo and bacon anchovy vinaigrette or our local fish feature. Lastly the Parry Bay Lamb feature from our friends out in Metchosin is an absolute must.

The wine list is extensive with input from multiple Sommeliers on staff always excited to share their new favourite bottle in our unique and cozy dining room.

    Our server was amazing, food was delectable, and the atmosphere was everything I wanted and more. They fulfilled my special request which was totally unnecessary, but they did it anyways. 100% recommend supporting this business and giving them a try, don't regret any money spent here!

    The food was good. I did expect more at the price point. Nothing to write home about. The service was good.

    Everything was fabulous…the flavours in each dish intricate and harmonious. You can’t go wrong with any dish you order, so I’m not going to highlight a specific dish. Our waiter was excellent, as well as the other servers. We appreciated that our finished dinner plates were not removed until we had all finished eating…a pet peeve of mine! We also appreciated the extensive cocktail and wine list. Our only thought was ‘why hadn’t we visited Cafe Brio before?!’ We’ll definitely return! One of our party is hard of hearing and we were lucky to snag a quiet table…just ask if that’s important to you.

    Thank you so much for the great review, Seeing as you said waiter, that narrows it down so we be pointing him towards this review. I know that it will make his day, Cheers

    Professional wait staff who really know their stuff when it comes to describing food and what to expect. Helpful, present but unobtrusive. Food was very well made and presented beautifully.
