Italian Food on Broadway & Granville

Wow! Fantastic Veal Scaloppini dinner! Throw in a. little Italian atmosphere & the evening is moving right along. The service was attentive and right on. Steps from Granville, late night parking is no problem. This is one happy diner!

The restaurant offers great Italian food in an intimate setting with attentive service and a good selection of dishes. We have been going here for years (since before it moved from its previous location) and continue to return.

Based on other people's reviews, Portobello appears to be family owned. It is a neighbourhood Italian restaurant with a good menu and tasty food. My friend had the halibut, which she loved! I had the linguine Vongole, which I very much enjoyed. The warm bread at the start of the meal was a nice touch. Service was friendly and attentive.... More

The food was very good and the service people were very friendly and helpful. The kitchen staff were slow to deliver food as they aren't really set up for the number of people we had in our party (13). For couples or average size families I would recommend this restaurant.

I took my daughter in law here for her birthday dinner. It is small and the tables are close together but the noise was not a problem. Our reservations were for 7 and we were greeted and taken to our table immediately. Parking out back. Food was excellent except that my halibut was overcooked could have been my fault as... More

Although the menu for the Dine-Out Vancouver had some excellent choices, we opted to order from the regular dinner menu as it was getting late in the evening and didn't want to have a heavy meal. Everything is cooked to order, therefore very fresh. We started with a bocconcini caprese salad which we shared - the plate was quite full.... More

My partner and I had heard of Portobello many times and yet it always seemed to slip our mind. This Saturday however we, or I remembered! It was my partner's birthday and we had a hankering for Italian. Portobello it was! I made a reservation for 7pm and when we arrived I was certainly glad I did. We got our... More

Four of us went for a family birthday dinner last night to one of our favourite restaurants. We go out to Portobello a couple times a year and are always treated as very special customers by Rosa, Pino and staff. We had excellent food and great service last night. The 3-course meal special of appetizer, entree and dessert was the... More

Unfortunately this restaurant did not live up to the reviews. The server was completely uninterested, the food sub par for Vancouver - it is not a place we will visit again.

Spaghetti Bolognese is my favourite dish and so far I have been disappointed in Vancouver. I will definitely come back here for the food. Service was very professional and attentive. Drinks menu could definitely be a bit more interesting but we were satisfied with the house red.
