Wow, this was so excellent. Petra P was an excellent server; food was very plentiful, served quickly, hot and fresh. A romantic, old country feel, not exactly intimate though. Because we were there before 5:30 we received a 15% discount. Strongly recommend.

sadly, after the lunch I had today....it won't be happening again....and I am going to tell my friends not to bother. I arrived full of anticipation. I haven't been there for quite some time and was fanticising about what I'd have before I arrived. On many of my previous visits, I had loved the salad verde dressing so I ordered... More

I have been visiting this restaurant frequently through the years and always found a high quality standard for the food and a very friendly service. The pizza is truly Italian with a thin base. Anyone who prefers a thick dough a cheese roll around the pizza is better off in Pizza Hut. When the weather allows it one can sit... More

Went on a whim as we explored Commercial Drive looking for Portuguese Club that was closed. The marguerita was all ice so my wife wasn't a happy camper. The seafood pasta was just ok as was my Classico pizza. $55 bucks all told was quite underwhelming. Not value and experience for $$$s.

Went there for pizza the other night, I had a Calzone and it was very good. Their beer selection is terrible though and I personally did not like the interior design of the place. However if you want great pizza go there, I will be coming back and this time I will order wine.

Maracello seems to be a Vancouver Little Italy landmark. If you're coming from the train station it's a 10 minutes walk north on Commercial Drive, at the top of the hill, on the right. The pizzas are an Italian-Canadian attempt to go upscale, not real Italian pizzas. OK. The staff are super-friendly.

Have eaten here twice while living on Commercial Drive, definitely worth checking out. Really good food and wine and great service. Pasta is really good and service is fast and the servers are so helpful and attentive, even when the place is very busy. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for a nice Italian meal out.

Staying in Commercial Drive

Neighborhood Profile
Commercial Drive
Commercial Drive, also called "The Drive," comprises of twelve sauntering blocks of modest and unfussy counter-culture. Straddling the line between sophisticated and unadorned, it is favoured by students, artists, writers, designers, and start-ups, and suffused throughout with a healthy off-beat counter-culture. The kind of neighbourhood which well-springs thought-revolutions and has the odd bit of self-aware graffiti, Commercial Drive has resisted gentrification in favor of continuing to build a thriving den of affordable multiculturalism. Once known as Vancouver's "Little Italy," it has also been the immigration point for Guatemalans, Hondurans, and Portuguese to the city. The resulting hodgepodge makes for poetry readings in espresso cafes, social debates in early-open bakeries, and eco-activism posters pinned up in the many multi-ethnic markets in the area. Commercial Drive is where you go to feel like a local, and if you have them, bring the kids – The Drive has a number of bookshops, toy stores, and attractions to get them involved too.
