Our Valentine's Dinner and My Husbands Birthday Dinner.

The atmosphere was great. Anthony was friendly and helpful with the food and wine, the food was delicious and not heavy and we liked the way he tells us what was in all of the feature dishes. His mom was very nice talking to us. I would recommend this place or a special event or a nice night out... read more

We often have dinner here. Everyone is so friendly and attentive. That make you feel at home when you step in the door. The food is always good. My fav - the grilled chicken pesto - brick oven pizza - awesome. That is not to say their beef, fish or pasta dishes are to be ignored. They are always fresh... More

We went for my husbands birthday, it's been awhile since we have been to Speekezzies so we were looking forward to going. It certainly did not disappoint. The service was excellent, tables for 2 a little small but that's my only complaint. We started with the sweet corn polenta, warm goat cheese & roasted red pepper puree, I had the... More

We have visited Speekezzies for dinner on many occasions. We are always greeted warmly by Anthony (the owner) and are made to feel at home. He is extremely knowledgeable about not only the menu items, but also the various wines that are available. Our favourite menu items are the bruschetta, gnocchi and grilled chicken with fettucine. Having said that, we... More

We've been visiting this place since shortly after it opened. GREAT pizzas, EXCELLENT lamb and steak, WONDERFUL pastas. Prices are very good for what you get... And Anthony is an absolute gem! Location (in a strip mall) is deceiving. TRY IT - you won't be disappointed!!!

Sometimes you pay too much and you are o.k with it as the service and food are exceptional and deserving. This is just not the case here. The place looks cheap and the family owned/served is plain awful. If they had experienced people running the front of the house maybe it could be better. But, the food will always hold... More

On behalf of the staff of ZRB, we would like to thank Antony, Heather, family and staff for preparing such a delicious Christmas dinner for our staff party recently. We all enjoyed our meals, and appreciated the attentive and friendly service!

This is a casual Italian restaurant where the service is friendly and the food good. They have things like lamb and fish as well as the normal Italian dishes
