We visited based on good reviews on Trip Advisor. We only had entrees so our experience with the menu was limited. We had pasta and chicken dishes. The food was decent - nothing special. The staff was very nice.

In main shopping street on 1st floor. Helpful staff who saved window seat at short notice. Tasty pasta in generous portions and pizza was super sized with extras.. All round good family restaurant. Nice experience.

Went there with high expectations given the high ratings on this site. Best feature of the restaurant is the attentive and friendly service. Kale Cesar was very well prepared but nothing special. The chicken lasagna was a small portion for the high price and the tomato sauce was acidic, and the overall dish bland. Not the best dining experience in... More

We expected to find it difficult to get good, reasonably-priced Italian food in this location any more. It was a welcome surprise. We were welcomed and our waitress was excellent, friendly and considerate. Our three meals were lamb sausage, lasagna, and spaghetti; simple meals but all very well done.

But you have to LOVE garlic, which we do. My teens and I enjoyed the chicken Marsala and spaghetti. The pasta was al dente, hot and very flavourful. We very much enjoyed our UNpretentious dinner on this very pretentious street (Robson Street). just a solid, good Italian meal.

My husband and I enjoyed our dinner in this Italian restaurant that has a dark, warm ambiance. Loved the feature wall of wine bottles! It is conveniently located on Robson, in the heart of the city. The restaurant is upstairs which is a plus because it is away from the direct noise of this busy street and the big windows... More

I realize that not every restaurant out there loves, caters to or wants children. I feel the same way. If I'm going somewhere fancy, the small side kick stays at home. In Zefferelli's case, she came along, but we dined very early. As in we were the first and only diners for a long time. But i couldn't help but... More

During a 2 day stay in Vancouver, my husband and I had dinner here with a friend, who highly recommended the food and specifically the pasta dishes. Large portions of pasta - Penne Michelangelo & Linguine con Ragu, followed by a large Tiramisu for dessert (shared by all) and awesome espresso too. Our server Paulette was very pleasant, told us...

Four of us had a delectable dinner. Three of us had the special salmon dish for our main meal. It was cooked to perfection with a mango tropical sauce flavoured with a hint of chile. One of our group was vegetarian and enjoyed a tasty three cheese tortellini. The desserts were delicious: lemon tart, pannecotta and tiramisu. The accompanying wine... More

Tried the crab linguini, a large and tasty serving. Others in our party had ham and mushroom linguini, mussels and ragu penne. All were great especially the ragu. Even the house white was pleasant. Attentive and pleasant service. Not the easiest restaurant to find - its upstairs on Robson but overall we really liked this place
