Wow, this place is really quite a treat! Great decor, lovely art and has a wonderful intimate feeling. The staff is spectacular and the food.... well, it is SO delicious!! Definitely a wonderful 'date night' spot! Also, if you like olives and mustard.. you HAVE to order the Olive Ascolani!

We had a great dinner the night before New Years Eve. The 2 first courses we had were absolutely delicious and executed to perfection. The risotto we split between all four of us and it was a simple delicious little appetizer. The main courses all we super except for the beef dish. It was too sweet. The small portions for... More

This restaurant was highly recommended to us by the owner of a bnb where we were staying. We ended up to go to cafe Brio 2 nights in a row because it was so good and we wanted to try different things. Delicious and so friendly!

We were lucky to get a table at Brio and it turned out to be fantastic experience! Lovely service! Amazing food. Every bite was a perfect combination of different flavors! And it was all prepared right to the point. Even a starter that doesn't sound exciting (4 veggies) was an "oral highlight"! Same with the mains. You can order every... More

Had reservations this week and as always the place had a great atmosphere. The service was good and the food was very tasty. I am just not sure how a restaurant can send out such a small portion for the prices they are charging. A half order was about 15 dollars and was pathetic. Without the bread and their french...

Excellent food and service. Both JJ (manager) and Alisha were top notch! You have the option of choosing 1/2 portions which makes it great for sampling more from the menu. We had the pork, tuna, agnolotti, venison, contorni and the mini brûlée. It was all delicious!

Our host at our B&B very kindly booked us a table at Cafe Brio as we had arrived late in the afternoon, tired and hungry, and with no plans for supper. The service and attention was lovely, and just what we needed after a long day, and the staff could not have been kinder. The food in addition was extremely... More

Had reservations and was greeted at the door by name, very nice! Too often as a single over 60 female, I am treated as not the most desirable of customers, but at Café Brio, I was treated as a known patron, seated at a nice table immediately and enjoyed excellent service, even after my dinner as I was leaving, I...

Tis is our favorite restaurant in Victoria, B.C.. The food is creative but authentically Italian. The Mamma makes stuffed olives to die for. The entrees are just the right size, the sides scrumptious. I had duck, and others at our table had fish, filet mignon and chicken. The wine suggestion was a substitute for our original request, but I can't... More
