Thursday - Pasta + Salad
Tuesday - Pizza + Salad
with peas & gorgonzola
Excellent service and ambiance in the heart of downtown victoria which we are craving indeed.
Service was very good. The food was fine. My pasta was kind of... boring, for lack of a better word. My husband liked his pasta a lot. The fried broccoli was definitely the most delicious item we ordered.
My favorite Victoria restaurant. Food, service, ambience all excellent. Never a disappointment!!
Thank you Rosalita!
We have never had a bad meal and will return for our favourites or entirely from the ever changing feature sheet. Service is always stellar. And just between you and me I appreciate all the quiet work Zambri's has done behind the scenes with local charities through the pandemic.
Thank you Ron. It is our pleaseure! We wouldn't be here without your loyalty and kindness.
I am never disappointed. Everything fresh and tasty. It really is one of Victoria's gems! The variety on the menu had something for everyone!! Great for dates, meetings and celebrations.
Thank you Anna. This means a lot to our team!
Nice Italian style restaurant with great service and good food
We hope to see you soon Nathan!
We would give 7/10 overall
The waitress didn’t seem too interested in us
They charge for bread ! No other restaurant in Victoria does this
They seem a bit arrogant...they’re only a restaurant. In these economic times I’d be conscientious
Il terrazzo much better value and their staff is very consistent
A fabulous evening. We sat in the atrium and enjoyed a delicious meal and lovely atmosphere.
We are glad you enjoyed, Katherine. We hope to see you soon!
The food was amazing and the staff were courteous and knowledgeable. And we loved our mocktails! A lovely night out!
Hi Heather. Thank you for the kind words. Come back soon!
Delicious pasta, pork, crispy broccoli and a very good wine pairing recommendation. Our only quibble was an uninteresting green salad that didn't come up to the very high quality of the other dishes.
The service was impeccable & we were treated so well! Really enjoyed it.
Everything was enjoyable very much.
sorry about the reservation screw-up. Looks like I mistook Thursday forf FRIday, but you folks worked it out. THAnkyou. don inch
Always the best ! :)) Only restaurant I like to go to :))
Always wonderful and felt very Covid safe which was so important to my family. Thank you
My first time at Zambri's. Food and service was wonderful. I will absolutely be back.
We had a wonderful meal, great date night. The appitizers were amazing. We will be back.
Peter was our server, and he was fantastic and made the experience outstandingly enjoyable ....great time!
Service was great and the pizza..... wow. Just wow
Me and me husband enjoyed our dinner at Zambris. Very romantic atmosphere with tasty food.
We were celebrating my partner’s birthday. We started with cocktails, The Amethyst (tasty but a little sweet) and Terremoto (fantastic flavor). Appetizer was the Antipasto plate which was just the right size for two. The spicy Genoa sausage was really yummy. My partner had the beef tenderloin special and I had the Ravioli special.. both were fantastic. Wine recommended by our server were perfectly paired to our food. Overall a very good evening.
So great to see Zambries doing well! We love the Atrium, it's so spacious and we were spread out well enough to feel very COVID safe. The food was wonderful, our choice of the daily specials were great, as per our servers suggestions. yum!
Our table was in the courtyard, which is quite a charming space with high ceiling and potted trees--a little bit on the cold side at this time of year, so I recommend having warm layers. We splurged on a bottle of Chianti, which was well worth it. We had the beet carpaccio salad, as well as focaccia and olives for starters. A little surprised that they charge extra for the olive oil dip for the bread (both bread and dip are included with meals at Il Terrazzo), but the focaccia is nice enough without a dip. For mains we shared the penne with peas and gorgonzola and the funghi pizza, both of which were extremely tasty and well prepared. The penne didn't keep its heat very well, so make sure to eat before it goes cold. We really didn't need dessert but decided to share one anyway for a treat, which was very special--I can't really describe it but it had a gorgeous pastry top and a kind of creamy middle, with a fruity paste around it. Servers were all very friendly and attentive, and food came promptly. Definitely a great choice for our Valentine's meal.
Totally enjoyed the ambience in the atrium. Food excellent as was the service. Haven’t been to Zambri’s for many months as my last visit was ordinary. Glad I went back. Excellent evening
We had a lovely time. The food was amazing and the service was perfect. We felt safe with COVID practices and their care and attention. Thank you Zambris.
Had a great time, great table, great service. 10/10
Thank you Hayley. We are so glad you enjoyed. Come back soon!
If you are looking for a fancier and authentic Italian place, Zambri’s is amazing! The food reminded me of Italy, was extremely cheap for what you get and the atmosphere was great. No complaints!
Thank you Bailey. That is exactly what we strive for. We hope you'll be back soon.
We went for a special night to celebrate Valentine's day and that is exactly what we got.
That makes us happy to hear, Paul! We hope to see you and your sweet heart soon.
Staff were wonderful and food delicious as always!
It is always our pleasure! Thank you for the review.
Amazing as usual! Love the airiness of the atrium during Covid times!
We are glad you enjoyed! Thank you Tracy.
Sad to see such an abbreviated menu, but enjoyed our meals regardless. We shared the ample antipasti and the wonderful focaccia to start, then enjoyed the Tagliatelle with meat sauce and meat lasagna. We finished off with tiramisu.
Staff were attentive yet unobtrusive, pleasant and helped make the dinner enjoyable.
This particular night there were some very boisterous guests at one table and it became annoying. Service for our main dish was quite slow.
Hi Mand, Thank you for the feedback. My name is Jayme and I am the manager at Zambri's. I have made note of the slow main course for your table and we will aim to improve the speed of our food. Unfortunately, the boisterous guests are out of our control and I did ask them to keep it down and use appropriate language at which point they left. We hope this does not deter you from dining with us again. Sincerely- Jayme
Highly recommended! You can't go wrong with the dine around $50 menu.
I'm sure we'll be back to eat there soon enough.
Awesome! Thanks James. See you soon.
Their Funghi pizza is fantastic, and their pasta is always fresh and delicious. My favorite table is the inside corner facing the atrium, and the atmosphere is very festive. I do object to the sound level of the music. I find restaurant music more of a distraction than an asset generally, and we needed to speak up to be heard by each other.
Thank you! We do love the Funghi as well and are glad you enjoyed. We appreciate the feedback on the music. All the best- Jayme.
I was disappointed by the dine around main of butternut squash and blue cheese on shell pasta (i actually asked the waitress which she thought was the best main and she said this one was most popular) .. but it was bland - not much flavour, no hint of blue cheese at all. Honestly it was kinda like how i would hide veg for kids in a cheesy pasta dish. The dessert was meh too.... which is soo disappointing as I had known this place before as delicious food and it really just wasn't exciting - surprising when this is supposed to be a menu to get people enthused about your food? Anyhow the wine was delicious and the atmosphere is great but I could have made better food at home :/
Thank you for the honest feedback regarding the Dine Around dinner. We will pass it on to our Chef. I am glad you enjoyed the wine and ambiance! We hope you will give us another try. All the best- The Zambri's
This was a very good dining experience. The food was especially good, but everything went well. We got good advice from our server. Their attention to safety during the pandemic was reassuring.
We selected different entrees from the $50 Dine Around menu. The cauliflower appie was crispie and the accompanying sauce was a perfect match. My friend very much enjoyed the local rockfish dish. I selected the braised beef, which had a very rich sauce. Unfortunately, it was served only with polenta, which did not sufficiently balance the sauce. I would have preferred the beef in a smaller serving with some sort of steamed green vegetable along side. The olive oil cake was quite dry, almost like cornbread, and lacking the citrus flavour. Again, portion was too generous and the ricotta sauce ran out.
Always have a good experience here. Covid measures were on point
People complain that things don't change. This isn't always a negative - especially when you've come as close to perfection as Zambri's. Consistency is hard, yet Zambri's has managed to offer excellent food and service for the more than 15 years I've been dining here. Keep it up!
Thank you! We are glad you enoy our classic comfort food. We hope to see you soon.
Loved sitting in the Atrium and our server was great
Wish they offered side salads rather than full portion - we both found them too big and would prefer an appetizer size.
I didn't like the caesar salad at all. The dressing was clumpy and thick and I found it unpleasant.
The pastas were good - lasagna and tagliatelle - both good and hearty.
I also really object to restaurants charging for bread - it's pretty cheap.
They should also advertise if they have a time limit on tables - we didn't mind but advance notice would be good.
Thank you for the kind words and the constructive feedback. We appreciate this as we are always striving to be better! Come back soon.
