Welcoming and friendly atmosphere, lovely and efficient staff, fast service, and delicious food. Perfect! And just right on a cold winter's evening after seeing a great movie in the Zeffirelli's cinema.Highly recommended.

Booked a movie deal - see a movie first then eat in the restaurant which was excellent value. The movie was at Fellinis a lovely little cinema & then we ate at Zeffs. Although a vegetarian restaurant the choice is wonderful & so full of flavour. Although a Wednesday in early December the restaurant was busy, not just with tourists... More

One of the reasons we chose to be in this particular area of Lake District is because of the two vegetarian restaurants. Amazing food, right up there with the among the best vegan food I've eaten.

Stumbled across Zefferellis online, thought it sounded a bit different came here on Saturday 26th November. We started off with a drink upstairs in the jazz cafe and then headed down to the restaurant, being a vegetarian it was great for me to have so much choice! The food was excellent, piping hot and delicious. Service was quick considering it... More

Zefferellis is a great place to spend the evening. The vegetarian menu is diverse and tasty- although very expensive. There's a cinema and 2 course meal deal for £20 which is really good value for money. Food is always delicious and service is great.

We called in for a drink to check out the Jazz - the music was good but it wasn't Jazz (Sinead o Connor' nothing compares to you) so they must have different events on Nice atmosphere and barman was lovely will be back on our next visit

Eat here on a saturday night, glad we booked as it was very busy. Really good choice, the pizzas looked good, my spinach roulade was very tasty. Staff were very helpful but were not at all pushy and we were able to sit over our meal without feeling rushed.

We always eat at Zeffirellis when in Ambleside as you know you're going to get a great meal. You need to book at busy times as it's very popular at the weekends in particular. Service is fantastic, just the right attention given at the right pace and always with a smile. Ambience is good too with a mix of big... More

I am not a fan of vegetarian food and was reluctant to step in Zeffrellis. I changed my mind completely when pizzas were served. They were simply the best. I loved the mushroom pizza and got to order twice. It tasted just wonderful. I have to tell you one more thing: service here is probably one of the best in... More
