The food was very good if a little pricey. Really nice atmosphere and close to movie theatres.

Wonderful spot to sit and enjoy an exceptional meal before a movie or just on a casual date night. The Caesar salad is to die for and the service is excellent. Good wine selection. Definitely recommended.

Great spot for a casual get-together downtown. The menu offers something for everyone. We visited on a Saturday afternoon, just after 1:00. It was a good thing we had a reservation for our party of six.

Subpar execution. Menu sounds good. Quality not there. Funny to read the owner responses to negative reviews. Further emphasizes that they just don’t get it.

Valentines Day date. This was our second time dining at Zambrini’s and we weren’t disappointed. We usually opt to stay home and cook something decedent, we prefer a more intimate Valentines Day, but we were so glad we went out. For light eaters I suggest ordering/sharing one dish from every course with your date. That way you get to taste all they have to offer. So stuffed, but so good. Staff is friendly, real, and polished. Lovely setting, even with a packed restaurant. Their wine list is well matched to the menu. Save (or make) room for the pistachio gelato - trust me!

We booked our reservation for the first time using open table. I appreciated the email reminder about the date and time.

We arrived at the restaurant and were seated within minutes. It was nice that we were given a choice of seating locations. Naturally we picked the closest one to the bar.

Our waiter attended to us promptly and we settled on some drinks and a starter Cesare salad. He recommended we just split one salad because it was large enough for two.

Our order was taken for the entree and we both enjoyed our meals. My partner loved his crispy pork shoulder. I thought that my dish, chicken with potatoes and Tomato sauce was missing something as far as seasoning but it was still good. The olives were very tasty.

During the course of our meal we were served and attended to by a about 5 people. It’s obvious that they work well as a team.
A shout out to the waitress who paired a perfect wine for my meal. It was indeed full-bodied and a nice compliment to the meal.

Thank you for making our Valentine’s Day a special day.

Our appetizer was a delicious eggplant 'cannoli', which was amazing as usual.

We split an entree of Pescato del Giorno - rock fish with a potato and baccala crust- which was a little disappointing. It wasn't up to the usual excellent standard we have come to know and expect. The puree sauce that covered the dish appeared to be a taupe colour, which wasn't very appealing and the crust on the fish was similar in colour and appeal. It tasted a bit under-done and altogether a bit mushy. We will be back but may be a little less adventurous next time.

Our server made an excellent wine recommendation and staff were friendly and attentive as always. Much thanks to the gaol behind the bar who understands how a sincere 'goodnight can make a customer feel special.

We were visiting Victoria for just a couple of nights and so glad we chose to check out Zambri's. Food was delicious, the pork was especially mouthwatering. Highly recommend!

Table wasn't ready, bland salty food, ordered wine finally came as we were done eating our main.

The service is excellent, the food delicious and attractive in presentation. The staff are very good in addressing dietary restrictions. Wine selection is very good and reasonably priced.

Zambri's definitely deserves a place among Victoria's best restaurants. Carefully made authentic Italian food, well served with knowledgable staff, custom dining options, great ambience, not cheap but decent pricing.

Lovely as usual. We are never disappointed here. The consistency in both quality of service and food never fails! A true gem in Victoria.

Painfully long wait for lunch food. (1hour)! Ignored by host upon arrival . Stood waiting as phone conversation continued- no eye contact acknowledgement . Disappointing service . Very good food but that in it self doesn’t make a restaurant nice to be at
