We came here for supper and were able to get in with a short notice reservation (also had a great table by the window). The restaurant is large, open and has a classy feel. Our server (Sarah) was great, very friendly. We had appetizers and main courses. The food was solid Italian (not overly fancy) and very generous portions. Would... More

This is a cozy restaurant and the food was good, but it is tiny so service was a bit slow and the "full" bar, really lacks any variety. Pasta dishes were good. Nothing wow, just OK.

This very nice Italian Restaurant is on a first floor on Robson St in the heart of Vancouver. The Street entrance is deceiving as its just a door in a wall followed by a corridor and some stairs but at the top of the stairs is a very large busy Italian Restaurant ,. We arrived about 7:30pm just before the... More

I came here alone for lunch on a weekday. It doesn't get busy until after 12pm. I liked the decor and the atmosphere inside, but the staircase leading up to the restaurant from the street is sparse, not decorated, and there is no signage. The door was closed, industrial-looking (did it have a push bar?) and was obviously not for... More

We really enjoyed our dinner here. It is a very nice place, the food was delicious and there was plenty of it. Most of the tables were occupied but it didn't seem noisy.

We tried Zefferelli's Spaghetti Joint based on the many positive reviews. We had made a reservation and when we climbed the stairs we found there were a number of large parties already seated. However, we seated in quick fashion at a table next to the center island display, which at first I wasn't thrilled with. But it turned out to... More

We went early and were a bit nervous because it was so quiet. We needn't have worried - it was full to bursting before we left and easy to understand why. The pasta was quick, delicious, plentiful and well-priced. The wine was also good and well-priced. The staff, though rushed off their feet, did a fine job.

We have eaten here twice this year, once in April and once in October. We enjoyed the first visit and were not disappointed in the second. The food is consistently good both our different meals were well prepared and tasty. Without wine the meals are reasonably priced. There appeared to be little wine selection below $40 a bottle which I... More
