We found this from on the Urbanspoon app. The rating was decent so we decided to go for it. It was about 7:00pm on a Wednesday evening. The place was packed. The tables are really placed just far enough apart for a big person to get by walking sideways. An "owner-like" person greeted us at the door and told us... More

This place is genius. As my first review it had to be my favourite Vancouver restaurant. Located on the second floor you walk in and it just feels Italian. Great service and atmosphere the whole way through. Ordered the chicken parm and it's by far the best chicken parm I've had. Always go to other restaurants and compare it to... More

Since it was nearby, we went to Zefferelli's rather than traveling farther and hoping for better. The appetizers were iffy, though our main course of chicken scaloppine with spaghetti al'olio was tasty. Not bad, but you can do better.

Nice place. Great space. Good food. I had the basic spaghetti and meat balls (first time "go-to" entree). The server was a bit stand-offish...but warmed up to me. I'd go back

The menu offered a diverse selection of interesting choices. Our server MJ was extremely attentive, helpful and informative. We each selected different options and were rewarded with a superb meal. The chicken livers are extremely delicious-best ever! The pastas were done to perfection. The wine choices provided met every budget and the house red was divine. I can't say enough... More

We had a very nice meal here - good service in a really nice setting. The food was hot and tasty and the restaurant had a really nice cozy atmosphere. The prices were reasonable, but worth the bit extra for some good food. We would certainly go back. The service was also very good, with a very friendly and knowledgeable... More

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.

Glad you had a nice visit. Yes, with the windows open and a full restaurant, it can become a bit noisy in here. Unfortunately nothing we can do about that. Sorry. More

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

Thanks for the review. Due to supply and demand, the price of halibut has been a bit high lately and for that reason coupled with your input, we have decided to hold off from offering it until we are able to deliver it at a better price point. Thanks for your input. Glad to hear that you enjoyed your visit. 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.

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
