Zambri's Ratings and Reviews
Fantastic evening overall just a little on the noisy side it was a busy evening
Excellent as usual - consistently meeting high expectations.
We had a fabulous diner! Brent our Server was fantastic!!
Consistently top drawer. I love the room,food, drinks.
We are big fans of Italian cooking and were quite looking forward to our Sunday Birthday Brunch. The menu was interesting and the food was quite good but our service was spotty. We had several service missteps that can make or break the experience. Didn’t come away certain we would come again but we should probably give them another chance.
No plates were provided for the bread or any kind of dipping oil/butter and we were rushed through. The noise level was quite high.
Excellent service, easy location, good food-ticks all the boxes.
food there are bit overpriced.
Been before and had enjoyed the authentic experience of family style Italian dining so wanted experience that again. Although the food was very good this was a change from our previous experience. The menu has changed and while they offer pizza and pasta you could be anywhere and doesn't speak to rustic Itqliqn cooking.
Imaginative and top quality Italian. The wine list was superb! The service was super. Had the tagliatelle, Caesar salad, pork shoulder and two special appetizers, everything I would order again. Really enjoyed the pace of the meal, we were not rushed. We had a child in a stroller and the staff was very accommodating, even though more of an upscale restaurant.
Zambri's offers an exquisite experience--excellent food, wine and service--a comfortable
evening event especially for a birthday. Tiramisu with a candle! Nowhere better in town!
In my opinion the chef in the kitchen should get a raise.
The food as well the service was AA+.
There are not much restaurants around with the this quality of food.
The prices are just a little little to high but because the food was original and delicious, no problem I ll pay for it.
Thanks for your service
See you soon
This was our first and probably last visit. The wait staff seemed disjointed as if no one particular server was assigned to our table. Our COO was told they had more than 1 bottle of the red he wanted to order but when he asked for the 2nd bottle, they had sold the only other one they had. When it came to a food allergy, they were lost. They gave the impression that they never had anyone with a food allergy eat there before. A big disappointment, however there are so many good restaurants in Victoria, it doesn’t matter. Actually, if in this area, check out Agrius, it is excellent!
We have eaten here many times but this night the food was very salty, and not quite as good as usual. Always love the menu here but the food was just way too salty. Otherwise all else was great.
Zambri's is one of Victoria's top restaurants. It is Italian style -- more true to Italy, with it's traditional course structure of antipasti, primi, etc, than your typical Italian-American pasta place. It is sophisticated fine dining which adapts well to romantic dinners for two, to bigger groups and everything in between.
I was meeting a business colleague that I hadn't seen in many years. The location was very convenient and both the service and food were excellent. Give yourself some extra time to find parking!
Delicious brunch that left us full to the brim. The coffee kept flowing!
Made a reservation on a busy night -- luckily -- and were dseataed within 10 mins. Wonderful service and an excellent meal. Highly recommended.
Every visit to Zambri's should include an order of the Crispy Broccoli and Tiramisu. Our meal was outstanding.
Food ok. They did not have any kind of dairy alternative for hot drinks which was disappointing. Music was not piped outside. Service very good.
We had a great experience except it was a bit loud
The service was swift, food was well presented and prepared. Would go again, not cheap but good value for money.
The food was average when I had heard great. Service was mediocre. Had a bottle of Perseco and when it was finished the waiter just took the empty one away. We were going to have another but changed our mind. Bad sales tactic. With the amount of great restaurants In Victoria I will not come back.
I had pizza and it was delicious but my husband had the pasta of the day and found it too spicy (the menu didn’t indicate this) and he felt sick afterwards. I wish the bread came with dipping oil or butter, it’s too dense in its own. The location is very nice and the servers are excellent.
Our favorite italian restaurant in Victoria. Food and Service outstanding. Where the locals go..
Right from the moment you walk in the door you fell welcome. The friendly and professional staff greet their long standing clients with a hug. The drinks are simple but perfectly done and the wine list follows suit... short but perfectly chosen. The food is outstanding and Chef Peter Zambri tours the restaurant making sure everyone is enjoying their meal. Overall a lovely evening out!
The food was incredible, we ordered the tasting menu and every course was outstanding! Our server did a fantastic job, knew the menu (And wine menu) well, had perfect timing with the delivery of each course. I will definitely be returning, this is one of the nicest meals / experiences I have had in a long time!
Impeccable service, great wine list, killer desserts and excellent food. Very nice experience !
One minor letdown : my chicken dish was not very flavourful (under spiced) but otherwise excellent.
I really needed a nice healthy tasty meal and nice atmosphere and nice people. Ive been sick and needed to treat myself and I was happy I picked Zambri's. I felt better because I was there.
Thank you for keeping up on all aspects of your business especially the local healthy choices.:)
Lovely meal. Attentive staff. Got our dessert to go so as not to be late for a concert. Thank you!
There was not much service other than taking orders, and clearing. Food was mediocre, Quite disappointing.
We've been going to Zambri's for special occasions ever since it was in the little strip mall behind London Drugs. It was an amazing find back in the days when Vancouver Island had few good Italian restaurants. And even now, in its more sophisticated location at the Atrium on Yates, the quality and authenticity continue to impress us. The prices are too steep to consider it for everyday dining, but for a special meal that takes us right back to La Bel Paese, Zambri's is always our first choice. Perfetto, come sempre.
Consistently consistent. Great modern Italian. Good value for money. One of my favourite spots in the city.
The service was very good. The hosted made appropriate suggestions. A very enjoyable evening
I am going there for many years,use even to go where they were before.The food is always excellent but it is the first time that I had a very bad service.Starting from the beginning went I walk in.I arrive at 5.15 for my reservation and they were only two table occupy.I ask the hostess if I could be sitting at the table for two in the front window.She refuse mentioning that they keep it for 7PM in case they need it to add another table beside if they need it for 4 people...the place was empty and when you are eating alone there is no way that I will still be there at 7...Then the guy came to ask me if I came there before,when I told him yes and many time he told me then you probably know already what you want,also I order immediately my meal and a glass of wine.I saw him one more time when he brought me the wine and never saw him again.He was to busy to be talking always to the other table of 3 .Never came to see if I like my food or offer another glass of wine.But then like usual it is somebody else who brought the food and then another guy came when I finish to eat my plate to ask me if I need something else and then brought me the addition.Again not offering another glass of wine..May be that was the one who originally was supposed to take care of the table but I don't know he never introduce himself or mention hat he will be the one to take over my table.I will definitively go back for the quality of the food but I think if I am great it again like I was the last time I will just walk out or ask to see the manager...
Although the service was lovely and the food great, there was no pizza left by the time we ordered. The biggest complaint I have however was the sound. I had a VERY RARE night out without my loud children, and unfortunately there was one woman(guest) who was loud beyond reason. Beyond words, actually. Even though she was on the other side of the resto, she ruined our experience. It was impossible to talk together. The waitstaff and other guests were aware, but did not ask her to be more respectful. As this was my one night out for a long time, it was very disappointing.
zambri's gets that much of their lunch time traffic is on a lunch break. My sandwich was okay; I wil probably pick something else next time
My husband and I both had the evening's special which was meat lasagne and it was delicious and a good healthy portion. We both took some home for lunch. Also had a lovely refreshing salad (insalata mista).
Good food, well presented and well served. We had the four course sharing meal, paired with a nice bottle of red wine. The choices offered gave us a good variety and a great way to taste a selection.
The pasta 3 course dinner for 2 was fantastic. I would highly recommend it.
