Terrific food, reasonably priced

We religiously visit Zeffirelli's every time we visit Vancouver. The grilled chicken liver cooked in sherry with sage is mind numbingly good! Washed that down with a glass of BC Syrah that was full-bodied with raspberry tones. The kids love the clams spaghetti dish and typically split a plate as... read more

It was our first day in Vancouver and to welcome us the Heavens opened and it poured down. Dodging the rain we came across a little door opening. Beside it was a Menu etc. After reading this well placed Menu we decided on an earlier than normal Dinner ant entered. going up some stairs I got the impression we were... More

We ate here on a weeknight, and did not need to book. The set out is good, plenty of room between tables. Our waiter was excellent, and professional. We were brought some warm bread to start with a tomato dip which was delicious (hint of chilli). Then we had the veal parmesan and the osso bucco. Both very good. No... More

We had a large family gathering (12) and the restaurant really delivered for us. There was a large and wonderful selection of antipasto which worked well as a starter for a crowd since everyone can find something to their liking. We had house wine which was acceptable all around. Service was awesome and unobtrusive. I had the spaghetti with clams-... More

The food was delicious, the wine list good, the décor fine and the staff took excellent care of the six of us. The wall of windows that overlooked the street were closed the evening we visited but the window view was full of green tree leaves shot through with dappled sunlight; as the night wore on the branches came alive...

Zefferelli's is a cosy place. Service is excellent, food and beverage outstanding. There is a good vine selection. Pasta portion is well served and flavour is unique. Customer experience is key for its employees from manager to cocker.

After a long road trip from the US, we needed a late night nearby restaurant on the night we arrived April 1, 2015. A quick google search found us this quaint and charming little Italian place. We climbed the long staircase and it opened into an intimate dim lit restaurant. Without reservations, we were seated quickly. When a party near... More

Absolutely wonderful. The Concierge at our hotel recommend this place. The ambiance is warm and welcoming. The food was fantastic. We ordered the specials. I asked for a change in my foods preparation, no problem, very accommodating. My sablefish was so delicious. My husbands' ribeye was fork tender. Albert the owner stopped by our table. Such a great guy, a... More
