During our stay in Vancouver, we looked for a good restaurant in Downtown Vancouver for a dinner with our family. Everything was perfect, great food and moderate prices, also for families. Typical italian atmosphere - a little bit noisy.

My husband and I came here for a romantic dinner and had a nice time. If you like sweet drinks have the Amaretto Sour! Just delicious! My husband had the Chicken Stuffed Ravioli, which he said was great and I had the Halibut on special. It was really tasty as well..although a bit pricey! We only ordered one drink each... More

Zefferelli’s If you are strolling along Robson Street and are in the mood for some great Italian food, look up, look waaay up and you'll see Zefferelli's. Zefferelli's is located upstairs at 1136 Robson Street. It is a cozy restaurant that serves up home-style Italian food. We were there on a Friday night and it was a good thing we... More

Visited Zefferellis with my family during vacation. Chose to go there based on Tripadvisor ratings. We got four different pasta dishes. All ordinary pasta dishes without the delicious italian taste. so compared to our expatations based on tripadvisor reviews we were disappointed. OK restaurant, but not as good as rated on Tripadvisor

a small sign on busy robson street in the west end of vancouver proclaims "zefferellis a dignified spaghetti joint" next door to a very busy indoor and outdoor pub. if before five, the red door leading to the steps to the joint is locked. once open, the steps lead to a very pleasant dining area. inside, the menu definitely is...

I like it. Location: Perfect - it's right downtown on Robson street near all the shops so you can get in a day of shopping then eat. Service: Very good. Our waiter was pretty attentive, and he was a comedian to boot. This made the whole selection process and dinner, entertaining. Food: The menu isn't huge but you're bound to... More

We got a great table, right by the window centre-stage, and the restaurant was well-appointed. Perhaps I ordered the wrong thing, but I went with a special of Halibut pasta with spinach and capers. Unfortunately it was a bit bland and served with too much pasta - I eventually gave in and asked for cheese even though you're not technically... More

I wasn't expecting Zefferelli's to be so good. The word "Joint" dumbs it down. It's elegant, great service, clothe napkins. Beautiful room with giant windows that open, overlooking the Robson Street action. We booked a window seat. I had Spaghetti con vongole (clams), a dish I love. It was excellent. My friend had Penne with sausage. We had a bottle... More

One of a kind place on Robson, not quite so visible from the street. It's located above another restaurant, Cactus something. I was dining by myself, which may seem odd to some people, but it's in fact a very enjoyable experience. I was seated promptly, but my drink order took awhile. I notice that another table, seated after me, got... More

This restaurant, although small is delicious and the portions of food are huge! I went there with a friend and the service was excellent, the place beautifully done and best of all the food scrumptious! I had the Tortellini with Gorgonzola....oh my....I will return as soon as possible! Thanks!

Thank you for taking the time to submit your review of the restaurant. You definitely made a great choice for your pasta. So good is the tortellini with gorgonzola, some might say addictive. Hope to see you again soon. More
