Dinner at Zambri was nothing special. I had Tagliatelle with meat sauce. The sauce had a burnt taste to it. My husband had catch of the day. It was good. Service was good. Just nothing noteworthy here. Suitable if you are hungry and like Italian.More

Tasty, well-crafted Italian dishes. Staff is very polite and attentive. Try their berry sorbet for dessert.

This was not our first choice but the hotel staff raves about the pizza crust. They were right it was really good. I especially like the way the pasta is cooked perfectly. Service is very good and a good variety on the menu.

This restaurant had become our new favourite as quieter than Il Terrazo, also good in Victoria. Great fresh baked bread and pasta always cooked to perfection. Pizza’s are excellent as well. Check for daily specials.
