Our best meal of a recent trip to Victoria BC. Everything was well prepared. Not a large place. Reservations highly recommended.

Everything we ordered was more than passable. Wait staff was excellent, as was the wine list. Main entrees were fine, but the soup and desserts were even better.

Interior is figuratively warm and inviting. Same for service. Food was very good but not uniformly outstanding. Arctic char and scallop was disappointing with scallop being a bit rubbery and char-meh. Rockfish, contorni, and polish hunter salumi were very good.

Great service and great atmosphere - make sure to make a reservation. Great selection of Italian food and local products. Particularly liked that all entrees offered as a half portion. Could have done with a a few more appetizer options. Wine list also quite good with decent variety.

Over the past 12 years we have eaten at Cafe Brio several times a year. Always a great experience. The food is interesting and always prepared to perfection. The owners and staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome and appreciated. Definitely one of the top five dining experiences in Victoria.

Went there on a Friday. Showed up early for our reservation but were found a lovely table for two. Place was very busy yet our server was there in good time . Very knowledgable and even more important smiling in spite of her full load. Ordered a 2008 Rioja from Spain that was fairly priced for the quality of wine.... More

My wife and I celebrated an anniversary a week ago. Great service, we were seated quickly and the staff was attentive. Anytime I had a question or needed some service I'd look towards any server and they would notice and someone was at our table pretty quickly. The food was spaced out so my wife and I had plenty of... More

Our group of 10 was pleasantly accommodated for a birthday get-together. Service was friendly and efficient, everyone's orders arrived exactly as chosen, and at the same time. The menu selection is varied and the food is excellent. We brought our own wine, easily opened by our waitress, and also brought the cake, which was served without prompting with candles. Thank...
