The food and wine here are very good. Downside was it took almost an hour before we got our appetizer and longer to get our food so we were sipping wine for an hour before we ate and didn’t have much wine with food. The...waitress seemed overworked. Also we were seated very close to the path of wait staff - less than optimal social distancing. If the food weren’t delicious I’d recommend against this place. Maybe go on a less busy time.More

We made a reservation for 5:30 pm. We were told that the restaurant was very busy and we would have to leave by 7:00. We said that was great as we had to leave by 7:00 to go to a theatre production. When we arrived,...we were told again at the door, that we had to leave by 7:00. We waited about 15 minutes for our drinks and only got them because we flagged someone down and asked for them. At 6:50 we still hadn’t been served our main courses. When they arrived we had to gulp down what we could, and leave food on our plates and drinks in our glasses. The server said that no-one had told him that we had to be out by 7:00. Not a lot of communication between the front door and the servers. The restaurant was clearly oversold and under staffed. It was packed and no social distancing in place. The main course I ordered, a spaghetti dish with oil and garlic, was inedible. Our friends ordered a pizza, thinking it would be quick….wrong it turns out, and asked for additional mushrooms. None of us could see any evidence of them. They may have been on the half of the pizza they had no time to eat. When we got our bills, which came very fast, they had covered the first round of drinks. That was considerate however we all left drinks in our glasses. Would we return…no. Would we recommend this place…no. They’ve developed a nice trendy looking place but have left out service to the customers.More

Lively restaurant in the inner city. Decided on the funghi pizza. It had a medium crispy crust with mixed mushrooms and truffle flavor. Also ordered the pepperoni pizza - plan to spend $20 per pizza. Our server was friendly and attentive. Most Italian restaurants provide...fresh baked bread with olive oil/balsamic. This would have been nice rather than having it on the menu.More

Could not give this place a higher rating. Above and beyond service, food and ambiance. We really were blown away by the care and attention of the staff. Do not pass up a chance to visit this location for an amazing evening. Absolutely beautiful decor...too!More

My wife and I dined at Zambris with a group and ordered the striploin beef. I was not asked how I wanted my steak cooked at it arrived well done (not my preference). The food was fine but the portions were very small and a...few others were still hungry after. We ordered salads, the striploin and a tiny chocolate pudding and a soda- no alcohol. They then slapped an 18% gratuity on my bill and I walked out with $162.50 less in my wallet for the 2 of us. This restaurant does not offer good value and we will not be returning.More

The food was absolutley delicious-the only thing better was the service. Haida was efficient, knowledgeable,warm and incredibly personable...she's reason enough to come back! Fantastic experience, all around.

I had visited Zambri’s a couple of times years ago and had good memories of those occasions. My partner and I decided to have dinner there recently and by showing up at 5’ish we were assured of a table (although we discovered that they now...take reservations - at one time that was not the case). Our server, Haida, was spectacular...excellent suggestions and wonderful service in every way. I ordered the spring salmon special which was cooked to perfection. My partner ordered the three course special with the ragù and tagliatelle main....the caesar salad was ample for sharing and the panna cotta dessert although on the small side was perfect - a few bites to finish off the dining experience. Since we were driving a distance we each had a glass of wine, a chianti and the featured white....both lovely. We will definitely return with a reservation and look forward to another wonderful evening!More

We visited last week - I’m usually a huge Zambri’s fan, but the $40 menu is very disappointing. The pasta main is basically shell pasta with watery cheese sauce, and four small squares of pumpkin. My partner had the $50 main - huge step up...in ingredients and quality (not quantity). I didn’t want to complain, but made a suggestion to my server. No response/repair was offered during my visit. Also - the electric space heaters could be placed further away from table spillages. If someone spilled their water - the heater are right beside the table.More

The chanterelles for first course were fantastic, rich and delicious. Every time I come here I try NOT to have a pizza. I fail every time as the pizza can only be described as perfection. The squash, gorgonzola, speck ham offering with fried sage leaves...was everything a pizza ought to be. I finished off with chocolate and lemon gelato. My wife had the scallops and she commented on the rarely obtained perfect caramelization. A panna cotta completed her meal. For some reason this experience was so good that we both lost ourselves and felt we were on holidays.More

I have posted precisely 0 prior reviews as I so rarely have an experience that compels me enough to take the time to do so however, my business partner and I dined at Zambri`s recently and had a truly fantastic experience. From the hostess/greeter, to...the bartender saying hello as we entered then our server Andrew. I am not in any way a "foodie" but I recognize exceptional service and that`s precisely what we received from Andrew who helped guide us through the menu, offering suggestions based on his and other guest experiences. He had a very calm, fun demeanor which we appreciated and was attentive without being bothersome as it was obvious we were there to conduct some business. He made a terrific wine suggestion as well to go with our meals. Then to end the evening he did what I hadn`t experienced before, he placed the bill down and insisted we take our time, finish our beverages and pay when we were ready. Hats off to your entire staff but specifically Andrew, it`s evident this isn`t just a "job" for him but a passion and when I return to town, you can be assured Zambri`s will be on our agenda and a request to be served by Andrew. Thank you and keep up the good work, the meals were perfectly cooked to please pass along my appreciation to your kitchen staff too JamesMore
