We ate here on the recommendation of friends. As they didn't have a table right that moment, they sat us at the bar to get started so we could move to a table when one freed up. Then they apparently forgot about us. We waited so long to get served that we considered leaving, when one of the bar staff... More

In a meal that continued to disappoint, the final blow was the anise cake for dessert. The first bite revealed a very cold, and dry cake. The exact qualities you're not looking for in cake. The meal started with a Caesar salad -- crisp leaves drizzled (unfortunately, not tossed) with what looked like a bottled creamy dressing. Although there was... More

Great services was seated within reservation time even though the restaurant was busy. The service was excellent as was the wine choices simple but a good price and quality range. The sharing menu was excellent and was a perfect balance of food which allowed us to enjoy dessert. Quality of the food was very good.

Authentic Italian food. My favorite dishes are home-made sausage with polenta, and home-made meatballs with polenta, that seem exclusively available in this restaurant. The tomato sauce is just so yummy!

Outstanding Italian cuisine, atmosphere and service. We enjoyed two great meals with family and friends at Zambri's over the festive season. Yann, the general manager, made all the arrangements for the private dining room for a special surprise party. The dinners were fantastic and made for a very special celebration. Thanks
