We went here for our anniversary. The service was outstanding. It is a little loud but we realized alll the restaurants in the area were too. We would recommend the mussels in the marinara sauce. To die for..especially dipped with their freshly baked baguettes. We tried the spaghetti carbonara but my husband claims mine is better. We liked it, just... More

I recently dined at Zefferelli's after an absence of about six years, but I won't wait so long until I go again ! I had a wonderful pasta meal there. The service was prompt and friendly and my friend and I enjoyed the ambiance. I rated the cannelloni as the best I have ever had. The prices are a little... More

I've been here a few times recently, and it really is a hidden gem for Italian food. All four at our table had pasta, and we each had a generous serving that was prepared to perfection. The waitstaff was friendly, prompt, and generous with the parmesan cheese! Be warned--the pasta servings are generous (more American sized!) so if you're not... More

We were seated in the window which afforded a great view. Bread of good quality came to the table very quickly. My associate had the linguine. The portion was huge and in fact so large it was nearly obscene. My associate said it tasted good but was far too large of portion on the long rectangular plant. Looked more like... More

I am not generally a pasta fan but this was really good. We happened to see the sign for this place when leaving another restaurant and thought the menu seemed worth trying so a few days later we returned. It's upstairs above the Cactus Club and well worth a visit. Our server was helpful and any question we asked he... More

5 for dinner with a reservation. Zeff has been a pleasant dining experience for years and still is. Traditional seating restaurant arrangement (no hated long communal table, crammed together here). Sat in one of the booths, waited on promptly, friendly. Nice selection of pasta dishes. Did not order appies as the mains are large. One order of calves liver was... More

This is one of those restaurants behind the dark door up a flight of stairs that you always hear about. Great food, excellent staff.

Their food is what you taste in the best restaurants of Tuscany - fresh, delicious, cooked with love. We also appreciated the service which was helpful but not intrusive. In too many restaurants in Vancouver, the waiters think they are there to entertain you and provide conversation. None of this bothersome pretention here.

I arrived without reservation on a busy evening. I was seated immediately and served promptly. The waiter was very attentive. Food good, but not outstanding, but reasonably priced: salad $8.50, main course (calf liver) $24.00. Pasta al dente. Washroom average.
