We went to Zambri's on the recommendation of friends from out of Alberta who somehow knew they had spot prawns just in. I wasn't disappointed. The food was delicious and the kitchen staff kindly made us up a plate of spot prawns as an appetizer, even though it wasn't on the menu. I had grandma's pizza. Delicious. The ambiance was... More

Great food. Although everyone else in our party ordered "brunch" egg dishes. I had the lasagna the best I have ever had.

Perhaps my expectations were too much based on other reviews. I ordered a pizza which was unquestionably one of the worst pizzas I have ever had, The espresso gelato was awful.

Enjoyed our dinner although it lacks ambience for an Italian style restaurant unless you prefer minimalistic modern style. Food and service very good.
