Ambleside is BUSY! We tried a few places to eat but couldn’t get in. Stumbled upon here and got a table. Realised it was meat free. Not a problem, a good Italian doesn’t need meat. Garlic bread with cheese was great start. Pizza was absolutely...More

As someone who inhales meat on a daily basis, I am convinced that more institutions like Zeffirellis will certainly save the planet. Here's to vegetarianism and sustainable eating!

Superb restaurant with beautiful décor and very pleasant staff. Second visit, first time September 2014, and standards certainly have been maintained. Delicious food with excellent service, and most importantly, delicious chocolate ice cream sundaes! Very happy and very full.

One of my go to restaurants in the Lake District, all veggie with a good range of vegan options. Chilled atmosphere inside, staff always friendly. The food is always tasty and prices are reasonable.

We had dinner here on the recommendation of Richard from Riverside B&B Ambleside. It is generally known as a vegetarian/Italian restaurant. What a fantastic place! The front of house is so small and misleading, as you walk into the restaurant it opens out into a...More

We have been visiting Ambleside for years but for some reason we have never been to Zeffirellis. What a lovely place. We had a beer and a cup of tea sat outside in the sunshine, went for a walk, then decided to return for early...More
