Four of us arrived early Saturday as we had reservations for 5:30 but were walking by at 5:00. We were happily greeted and seated immediately. The food came quickly and piping hot, we were all very happy with our meals. I had the braised lamb shank over linguine noodles, large portion, the lamb and... read more

When on Robson , we would walk and shop, and would walk by Zeffirelli's , and say, we have to try this place one time. So on a birthday, we decided to make a reservation there. We arrived there and were greeted with a pleasant hello and how are you. We were seated at table for 4 along a booked... More

We reserved a table for four 30 minutes before arriving and we were seated immediately at a great table overlooking Robson St. We ordered four different pasta dishes and no one was disappointed. The pasta was cooked perfectly (el dente) and the four sauces tasted fresh and homemade. Our server was friendly and attentive. The portions were large so we... More

We've been to Zeffs many times and it only gets better and better. The staff, service, food, and ambiance is the best in town. The menu is great, always check the daily specials. The food is fantastic and the pasta is always "el dente". This is also one of the best kept secrets of Vancouver, sorry Zeffs, the secret is... More

Came here for dinner on a quiet Wednesday evening. The nearby bars were busy, full of people not eating what must be the best Italian food in Vancouver. The portions were generous, with the prices seeming very reasonable by comparison. My Carbonara was fantastic, our cute corner table set the mood perfectly, and the service from Renee was impeccable. We'll... More

We took advantage of a coupon to visit this wonderful restaurant while we were in Vancouver. It was a Saturday and, lucky for us, we arrived just after 5:30 and were able to get a high table for two. The place was very busy and we would recommend reservations on the weekend. Service was very friendly, considerate, patient and efficient.... More

The food and service was amazing. When our appetizers took a bit long the manager came out and apologized and gave us a complementary round of lemoncello. The abundance of great dishes they offer makes choosing a dish very difficult. They offer half servings of pasta and salad if you don't want a big plate. I stated with the mussels... More

In looking for a place to eat downtown we utilized an Entertainment coupon for Zeffirelli's. Not really sure what we were going to get, but we found a mid-sized restaurant on second floor with a beautiful view of the lit trees along Robson Street. We sat at the bar for a bit while our table was being prepared and had... More

During a one night stopover in Vancouver, our son took us to dinner at Zefferellies. This restaurant is situated in Robson St and is on the first (walk up) floor. The end wall of the restaurant open up to the trees, birds, and nightlife of Vancouver.

If we lived in Vancouver, this restaurant would definitely be a regular dining place for our family. We are vegetarians, and the staff here was very welcoming and helpful with helping us find dishes we could eat. They even let us substitute additional vegetables for the meat we left out. Surprisingly, this is not common, and we appreciated the restaurant... More

Staying in Robson Street

Neighborhood Profile
Robson Street
Robson Street is a shopper's paradise. Whether a window shopper or a serious trendsetter, a fashionista or a dabbler, the crowd of independent boutiques, quirky one-off shops, and well-known luxury brands on Robson Street have something to cater for every itch in your wallet. As a result, it draws a diverse crowd, and the people-watching along this famous walking thoroughfare is a primary attraction. In between the clothing shops both high-street and budget-friendly are a number of cafes to lay down your load, as well as numerous specialty stores ranging in their wares from music, to art, to city souvenirs. Known as "Vancouver's Runway," if a new trend is on the rise, you'd spot it here first.
