On a brief business trip to Vancouver, I happened upon Zefferelli's, and it will now be a regular dining experience for myself and my clients or family. The restaurant has an extremely comfortable vibe to it with well appointed table spaciously situated for one, two,...or the whole family. Zoe who professionally handed my meal selection made my dining experience extremely pleasant with upbeat conversation and menu recommendations that were to the letter and as fantastic as she described. My meal was excellently prepared by the owner Alberto and his team, and I must say, few Italian meals I have tasted around the world match the quality, quantity, and outstanding taste as the one I experienced tonight. I would highly recommend those looking for a quality dining experience to visit this jewel of a restaurant on Robson St. in downtown Vancouver. Great food, outstanding service, and very reasonably priced. What's not to like.... Peter Toronto, OntarioMore

This restaurant was a short walk from our hotel - Blue Horizon. The food was delicious and the service was great. It has a welcoming vibe and a friendly atmosphere. It's a great Italian restaurant.

This restaurant is a gem. The staff were lovely but the food! Delicioso! My husband got the puttanesca. The portion was huge and the flavors were amazing. I got the special, lobster and crab ravioli, it was wonderful. The dipping sauce - red- for the...bread was full of flavor and I could have eaten it all night. I would give this five stars. If you want great Italian food, don’t miss this place.More

Great atmosphere, friendly staff and great food. First floor restaurant, well signed from the street. We visited on a Friday night with an 8pm reservation and it was very busy.

If you’re looking for a great Italian meal with great service and great ambience, head to Zefferelli’s Spaghetti Joint on Robson. Don’t let the name or the climb up the stairs to an unassuming door fool you. We stumbled across this place six years ago...and recently stayed overnight post cruise specifically to eat at Zefferelli’s. The portions are large! And delicious!More

You could easily walk past the doorway to a staircase taking you up to this restaurant. Once inside, it is informal, cosy and lively with the delicious smells from the kitchen greeting you. Service was friendly, helpful and the meals we had on two different...nights were delicious. (We enjoyed it so much the first time we came back the next night!) The serves were very generous making the prices even more reasonable. Leave room from desert! Big shout out to waiter Sean - legend!More

Restaurants are all about the food, right? Well, if this were the only criteria I could only give this establishment 5 stars. But, for me, a great entree is one that i will attempt to replicate. So it was with the most amazing chicken Marsala....But food aside, there is another dimension to a great dining experience. It is the staff. They were all fantastic, our server was particularly most welcoming, making us feel like family. If we could give six stars, we most certainly would. Thank you for such a great evening.More

The dinner was just ok. I was a bit disappointed as well as my friend. We were visiting as tourists. The pasta was over cooked and the side vegetables I ordered were undercooked

We were walking distance to this restaurant from our hotel. We looked at the reviews. We read the sign out front. But when going there, we though its location odd, up the stairs from the street so we were hoping,....!! This ended up being one...of the better places we had eaten in Vancouver. A surprise in every way. We had big bottles of wine that were really low priced as they may have almost been home made Italian!! Not sure but it felt comfortable and easy to drink. We all ordered something different and we all loved everything we ate. The price was a extremely good too which was a shocker as we feklt we ate a lot between us all. The waitress was really good. No one felt rushed to leave. Had a really good meal and time there. You must make reservations.More
