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.

I was pleasantly surprised when we found this diamond in the rough. NEVER will I eat at another Italian eatery again. This quaint restaurant not only prepared a mouth watering meal but it couldn't have gotten any more authentic than eating straight from nonna's kitchen. Amazing. We didn't make reservations and the hostess was gracious enough to seat us with... More

We dined at the Portobello last night. Ambience was attractive, clientele lively. Twenty minutes after we were seated our orders were taken. One hour later, our salads arrived. Forty minutes after that, our main course. in none of our cases was the meal well-prepared, and in my case, the vegetables were uncooked. Most definitely not a four star restaurant. Wine... More

Well it's that time again for dine out Vancouver which I've found can be hit or miss. This time, it's right in the middle. First, made a reservation for 7. Got to the restaurant on time but had to wait a good 15 minutes for a table, which meant we were just standing there next to diners for that 15... More

Situated near the intersection of Broadway and Granville this unassuming little restaurant is a lovely family owned restaurant. The service is prompt and attentive without being pushy or hurried. My family thoroughly enjoyed our evening in this little place. The food was great, the desserts divine. Can't help thinking what a wonderful place for a first date. Classy without being... More

Our friends from Grand Forks, British Columbia come to Vancouver twice a year for a buying trip. It's been our tradition the the last 20 years to find a restaurant to have dinner and catch up on the past 6 months. Portobello has wonderful homemade Italian food, a warm and friendly atmosphere and excellent service. We all enjoyed our experience... More
