Great Atmosphere

Located above the crowd on Robson Street, you feel like your in a quaint restaurant in Italy. The pasta was very good and plentiful. A nice wine list and the service was spot on.

We just got back from 4 days in Vancouver where we were staying at the Blue Horizon down the street. Picked this restaurant randomly on our way back to the hotel from touring. Loved it! In particular the "simple" pasta entrees were some of the best I have ever had here or in Italy (particularly the Penne Pomadoro. The service... More

This is a good Italian restaurant on one of Vancouver's finest shopping streets. It is upstairs and so affords a view of the activity below if you have window seat. The general ambiance here is warm and inviting and works well for large or small parties. Reliable, tasty dishes and lovely presentation is what you can expect from a friendly,... More

Our hotel recommended this place and the location, view and ambiance were perfect! We had spaghetti carbonara and it was okay, the chicken marsala was not good... The dessert: panna cotta with wild berries was delicious!

The wine we ordered was unavailable. The waiter suggested a alternative, as we were unfamiliar with these wines he was helpful with his descriptions.He left us to decide.After awhile a waitress took our food order and also asked if we had given our wine order we said we were still undeciding. That was the end of any offer for drinks... More

I'm sorry to hear that we did you meet your expectation. From what you described we fell way short of the standard that we have set for our restaurant. Thank you for your submission and the reminder that maintaining our standard is an ongoing process that should never end. More

A hearty pasta meal was what we needed after a long day skiing in Whistler followed by a rainy drive back to Vancouver. Zefferelli's definitely did not disappoint. Generous portions, delicious options and a great view over the street below from our window seats. Prices were well matched for the quality (not too exxy) and the service we received from... More

Sounds like you had a great day in BC. Skiing during the day and dining at Zefferelli's at night. Some may say it doesn't get any better than that. More

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 the portions are large. The wife and I tend to... More
