I love this spot! Every time I come to the city I make sure I go to Zenari's for quiche or pasta with spinach salad and never ever forget the creme caramel...it is to die for!!! The best in the city in my opinion. The owners are delightful but don't expect the hired "foreign" staff to treat you well. Their mission is to clean the tables and ignore. Overall the best Italian lunch place in the downtown core of Edmonton.

I've never ever had good service at this place. The waitstaff is dismissive and are so slow they could teach a turtle how to crawl! The pasta, though tasty ( if you can get someone to tell you the special that day) take a long time and is, in my mind overprice for something not particularly inventive. The baked goods are no better than Safeway day-old specials and are overpriced at approx. $3 for a dry muffin. The location is fun and the restaurant could be so good... if only the service wasn't so horribly awful. Avoid the aggravation of feeling that the staff is doing you a favour by eventually taking your order. Go elsewhere.

Best lunch in the downtown core. Have the pasta or soup special with a bottle of San Pellegrino and it's about $20 for two.

I have never been disappointed in their daily pastas.
