We walked in without a reservation, but early, and were made to feel welcome and given a window table. Service was friendly and attentive. My wife and I disagreed about the food - I thought just average, with too much garlic, she liked it much more. So we'll go with her rating, since everything else was very good, except wine... More

The search for the world's best pasta with white clam sauce continues. From Florence to Quebec City to Chicago to Vancouver. Zefferelli's Dignified Spaghetti Joint is officially in the top 3 with Pasta D'Arte in Chicago and the late Gambrinus in Quebec. Our waiter M.J. offered that it was what they are known for. What great advice. With a glass... More

We went here twice on a recent visit to Vancouver, both time we arrived without a reservation on busy nights and the owner made every effort to fit us in. We had a short what but nothing really. The food is good traditional italian north american so probably more cheese and definitely larger portions than you'd get in Europe. Antipasto... More

This time we had lunch on a weekday just after Christmas. Service was prompt, portions still huge, good quality comfort Italian at a competitive price. Looks like owner on the floor, a good sign for customers. Nothing fancy, very dependable, worth coming again.

The spaghetti carbonara is such a treat. My dinner companions all raved about their meals, too. There is a lot of choice on the menu.

Had dinner here Again tonight. We seem to get here once every year or two since the 90's. I had the Calves Liver and my wife had Pizza MargaritA appy (she had been at an after conference function with food). Both were delicious, the liver was cooked to perfection and served with a lovely sauce and Al dente risotto. Not... More

I was looking forward to some delicious italian food based on previous reviewers. My husband and I ordered cocktails which were probably the weakest cocktails I've ever tasted. My husband's old fashioned tasted like water - so def go with wine if you come here. The bread and dipping sauce came out right away and was very tasty our appetizer... More

This will definitely become a "go to" restaurant when we visit Vancouver. Service was prompt, effecient and unobtrusive. The atmosphere was lively but not so noisy to make conversing difficult. My husband and I started with sharing a plate of oysters baked with spinach in a pernod sauce that was a taste treat. I had the crab linguini with roasted... More
