Zefferellis is easy to miss because it is just a door on the street level and located on the second floor above the Cactus Club on Robson. The room is perfect, hard wood floors and classic decor, not exactly like being in Italy but close enough. It's a small place but perfect ambiance. The windows all open to the treetops glittering with little white lights. The music is at the perfect volume so you can hear your companion when they comment on how delicious their food is. The servers are obviously well prepared and knowledgeable on the menu. The Antipasto Misto appetizer is what I would bring to a party if I could. If you were to try and make it yourself you would spend a hundred dollars on ingredients. There is a little bit of everything. Admittedly I have a nicely developed palate and an open mind when it comes to food. There is squid, eggplant, and mussels, sundried tomatoes, several varieties of olives, grilled beans and more, everything is rustic and flavourful and perfectly prepared. I would eat this plate everyday if I could. This is the kind of place you could take your parents, a date, or a client and know they will respect your choice. There is something for everyone on the menu. The sign says they are a "spaghetti joint" but that sells it short as they are so good at everything. We had the specials, Chicken Ravioli and Beef Tenderlon with Asparagus risotto. The food is so perfectly prepared and the ingredients are so fresh and the prices are just right - you would be hard pressed to make anything as good as this yourself. I love this place, it's my new favourite. I will recommend it to everyone. The only thing better is a home-cooked meal by a foodie with some real talent, but then you wouldn't get to experience the incredibly good service.
