We had a reservation but since it was early (5:45 pm) we didn't need one. Service was very good. Food was plentiful and good if not very inventive. Women's restroom wasn't clean and didn't have toilet tissue. Location was good in Gastown.

Not cheap, but nowhere is near the Waterfront, however the food was excellent. I had the Catch of the Day - Arctic Char - and it was outstanding served with an excellent risotto. Service was perfect in every way.

We had a reasonably nice meal here but the views are not quite like the website. Unfortunately, the Gastown area is becoming very run-down and this is impacting on all of the facilities in the area. Food was good, but not spectacular, which was disappointing...as I love Italian cuisine.More

We visited Al Porto 7 years ago, and were glad to find it again in 2023 during a short stay in Vancouver... just as we remembered it! Two blocks into Gastown, so the location is excellent and walkable almost anywhere from downtown. Great menu, great...service! We were there for an early, light dinner, and enjoyed a pizza, cocktails and wine. Carlos was our waiter, and was fantastic - good service, good conversation. Hope to eat here again next time we're in Vancouver!More

Al Porto is a fantastic Italian restaurant located in a busy and nice area of Vancouver. Even the entrance down a cobble stone street makes you feel like you're travelling in Italy. Food was excellent. Service was beyond expectations, Our server was a gentleman named...Sixto that was top notch and took care of us.More

My wife and I visited this restaurant last night, after seeing the king tut display. I had remembered this place and we thought we would return. It was 5pm so they had just opened. We were seated at table 49, our waiter was excellent, except...for putting our order in. We ordered the special, but we did not get any soup or dessert. We had the beef carpaccio as an appetizer, along with some wine. I ordered the scallops and prawns,which was delectable. My wife ordered the tenderloin, which was devine. We did not mention to our waiter that we were missing the soup. The meals were supposed to come with dessert, we were given dessert menus, again, we did not want to cause a scene. Our check number is 91519. We were in disbelief when the check came, but I paid it, with a nice tip, in cash. I don't know if we will be back, maybe it was a cause of miscommunication. The service was impeccable as was the food. We just feel we did not get what we had asked for.More

Walking in my 5 year old son fell, and our waitor Sixto turned his frown upside down with a Shirley Temple. He provided excellent service from the moment we sat down, until we walked out the door. The food was incredible. We will be back,...and will request Sixto again.More

The Restaurant was quiet when we arrived, but we sat in a section near the window with most of the tables full, so there was a pleasant buzz of dining conversation around us. Service was prompt and helpful. We shared a pizza, which was well...cooked (one pizza was enough for both of us). The other food we saw coming out looked great as well. A nice meal.More

A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and
stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of
being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many
plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell
the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's
history a more lively presence here than anywhere
else. Having been originally founded around a popular
