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

I heard about this restaurant from a neighbor whose brother is a chef in Victoria. In fact, he had his wedding reception here. What makes this place so special is that all the ingredients are locally sourced and the menu changes daily. The knowledgeable servers led us through the menu and helped us choose satisfying selections and wine pairings. I... More

...but I saw the latest review, "Dead Average" and felt a response was necessary. I make the pilgrimage to Victoria three times a year for the excellent Victoria opera company, and always come a day early just to eat leisurely at Cafe Brio. I've been doing this for at least fourteen, perhaps sixteen, years. At one point in my life... More

My wife and I went to Cafe Brio recently to celebrate her birthday. The reviews looked great and we loved the look of the restaurant from driving past it. When I called to make a reservation I spoke to the owner who told me that they'd had a fire but would be open for the weekend when we were planning... More

Greeted at the door promptly and noted how all the people were really having a good time, enjoying their dinners, companions and the music. Great attention from the staff with solid knowledge about the menu. Strongly recommend you have the wine pairings with each feature. I had the strip loin while my wife had the short ribs. We couldn't decide... More

You know a place is good when there is a line in front of the door, waiting for the place to open and everyone in that line has a reservation! Cafe Brio is an adorable restaurant. You enter through a sweet little courtyard and are greeted by the ebullient host. I'm assuming he is the owner. We were first in... More
