It was great to see Zambri’s staff ready, willing and able. The tables had a huge amount of space between and service was very much within current recommendations.

Waiter was a little tentative. Second time we have had him serve us. Needs some training to learn to linger a moment each time to clarify order instead of rushing away. Not to be in such a hurry. A little more repartee would be good. Also should learn to check back on us to see how we are doing.

There have been other servers at this place who are more engaging

Awesome service! The food was okay, the steak ordered was a little on the rare side when ordered medium but still delicious, and the wine selection and recommendations by the servers was appreciated!
Thank-u!!

Reliably great! Fast, attentive service, an imaginative fresh menu using local ingredients and great flavours. My husband had the fresh rockfish which he said was delicious and I had the leg of lamb that was outstandingly tender and flavourful.

Our server was fantastic. There was a delay in our dinner order and she came over, apologized and refilled our wine glasses without charge. The perfect topper to an otherwise perfect meal in a great place. Good value for the money.

There was puke in the woman’s washroom. Making my wife’s dinner less appealing. The appetizer was fried mozzarella with 3 small pieces which I found over priced even though it was good tasting 5 would of been better. It was cold inside keeping coats on. We did really enjoy the feel of the place. The steak we had was great and pizza was good. The served was hard to find only coming to check up on are table a couple times.

Food was ok, somewhat bland and could have been hotter. Waitstaff are excellent and knowledgeable. Over 150$ for two people (wine included) for an ok dining experience. Very loud and no privacy the tables. May not have been at their best as it was a busy Valentine’s Day.

Our clam sauce rose' pasta was lacking any hint of any pieces of clam or any other pieces of sea creatures, it did taste "fishy" though - real fishy and not very pleasing to the taste. I know Feb the 14th is a busy day for them but this meal was a complete failure on their part. We only ate about 1/4 of our meal - wine was good though..

Excellent pizza in a town with lots of serious competition. Excellent salad. We were out for a film so grateful for getting in and out in an hour, without feeling rushed.

The atrium is nice for dinner...wide open and quiet enough to hold a good conversation. The food was tasty and well presented and the server was friendly and efficient. I would recommend Zambris and will put it on my list for a return visit.

We usually eat at Zambri’s at least once on every trip to Victoria( twice a year minimum visits per year). We have never been disappointed. We loved the person who served us on Friday night. I am sorry we did not get her name. The restaurant is always a lively place to eat, but never to loud for us and we have difficulty hearing each other in loud restaurants. Innovative and delicious Italian food here for sure, and Italian food is our favourite so we are quite fussy. It has to be good!Zambri’s never disappoints!

Our table was ready, and our service was prompt, with just the right amount of attentiveness so as not to be intrusive.

Tasty food and drink options left all satisfied. We enjoyed a brief stroll to the Royal for a nice evening out.

Nice food, location, staff...

Went with friends for the Dine-Around menu. The place was bustling, so was glad we had reservations. We had cocktails and choose from the Dine-Around menu. Two of us had arancini (deep fried rice balls with cheese and a sauce) and two had salads with prosciutto. All delicious. Even though there were several very tempting options for the main, we all had rigatoni with pork shoulder and asiago cheese. So good--hot and comforting on a winter night. Two dessert options were offered. Gelato is what I had, and I think the other was a chocolate panna cotta. Both very good.
This is one of my fave places to eat out in Victoria. It can be a bit too noisy (lots of hard surfaces), which is annoying, but the noise is from people talking and general background noise, not overly-loud music.

I have eaten at Zambi's many times over the years and have always enjoyed the food and their excellent service. Unfortunately, the meal I had recently was quite mediocre. Perhaps it's because of the set menu for Dine Around Victoria, which I decided to have. This was not a good decision as I found the quality of the meal only so-so, particularly the main course with the beef being tough and rather tasteless. However, I think if I had stayed with their pasta or pizza options from the main menu it would have been fine.

We were seated out in the breeze way which I preferred (quieter)
Service was excellent, very attentive staff, did the dine-around $30 menu, a good deal (a little more pork would have been nice)
Panda cotta delish
I highly recommend this restaurant
