Always a great place to go with a friend. The service is excellent, and the food is delicious. It was my friends first time to Zambri's and he loved it. A local favourite for me.

Excellent meal. Tables set up well so we felt we had our own space.

It's always noisy but I guess folks are having fun.

We had an early dinner before the theatre. I always enjoy Zambri's. Two of our party were using wheelchairs and staff were helpful and courteous.

Accessible with accessible washroom.

We had a very lovely, light pasta business lunch. Food was delicious. Service was great; slightly slow to get the bill to us, but otherwise, fabulous!

Quality of pasta, salad and soup seriously declined from my previous visit several years ago. Mediocre and boring.

The service and food were spectacular. Best pasta, ever always. Generous, without overwhelming. Wine selection diverse and delicious. The only down side is the noise level which makes it difficult to visit easily with friends. A Go-To restaurant always.

Our first experience at Zambri’s. My wife ordered the chicken thigh meal. She enjoyed the chicken but the potatoes were very dull. She ordered the crispy broccoli as a side and enjoyed it. I had the rack of lamb. My potatoes were cooked differently and they were excellent. The accompanying artichoke hearts were very nice but there were far to little. The overall value was good and our service was great.
The decor was very nice but nothing there absorbed the sound and it was very noisy. I don’t think that we will return.

Great food, service and ambience. We had a narrow time frame to enjoy our dinner as we had movie tickets. Our server (and the chefs) ensured that we ordered, ate our delicious meals, and paid the bill in a timely manner. We highly recommend Zambri's.

We tried some of the specials and tried to order things we would not normally eat ie the marinated octopus and it was delicious. We had an extremely sweet, knowledgeable and friendly young waiter who helped make the evening very special. Thank you.

If you book with Open Table, make sure you call to confirm that your reservation went through. Ours didn't but Zambri's was great about it and was still able to accommodate us.

Price online for Thursday special did not reflect price charged in restaurant. Pasta was supposed to have salmon, zucchini and cauliflower. Very little of any one of these. First time I have eaten there, very disappointed...

We have dinned here several times,.. and were happy with the choice, the creative interpretation of Italian food and service. The last two times, the noise level was too high, we had to shout to be overheard. The service was slow, the food less creative, less special, more going down to a lover standard. The pasta tasted as though it came from a box, with very little sauce, hence cardboard like. Sadly, we will look for another venue for interesting,creative, medium priced fare, in a much quieter place.

Food was delicious as always. The spaghetti aglio olio is a must try! The waitress was excellent, but the hostess was very abrupt, verging on rude. Not a great first impression, but the server made up for it.
