So nice to have a reliable neighbourhood restaurant. Food is consistently fabulous. Portions are healthy and made fresh to order. The owners make us feel like family and are so welcoming. Reminds me of the days when my Dad had his own restaurant. The pasta has always been cooked perfectly and the veal is so delish! This place will continue... More

Last night we revisited our favorite neighborhood restaurant. There was no waiting for our reservation. If you are looking for authentic homemade Italian cuisine, a cozy romantic atmosphere then consider dining at the Portobello. When I have friends from out of town I like to take them to a restaurant that is unique, one of a kind. In other words,... More

Excellent food, very fine service in a lovely cozy restaurant that we are very fond of. Pino and Rosa are fantastic hosts and their staff always comes through for us. We had the seafood pasta with nice glasses of wine and dessert. The meal is always so enjoyable there. We will be back for sure.

Food was good, atmosphere was nice, staff were friendly. Giving this place 1 star because they screwed up our meal and handled it very poorly. We were brought the wrong food, we agreed to eat it out of convenience, waiter thanks us and says "I'll take care of it" multiple times. We finish and say we're not interested in dessert,... More

My family and I just enjoyed a delicious meal at Portobello Ristorante in Vancouver. We wandered in because the ambiance looked inviting as did the menu. We all enjoyed our meals immensely. The service was warm, friendly and knowledgeable and the food was delicious. My Cioppino was served piping hot and was very filling as were the other meals ordered‎.... More

My friend and I came last Wednesday and we had a great experience. Food was delicious and service was fantastic! The European waiter helped us with the wine and food selection, they also told me that they have parking at the rear. Reasonable prices and great ambience. We will definitely be back soon. Thanks Mike

I had shrimp - an ample portion - and it was cooked to perfection - Romantic and classic surroundings. You can tell there are repeat customers.

We stopped at Portobello prior to a play at the Stanley. What a delightful surprise. We ordered 3 appetizers and one pasta dish along with a half litre of their great house red. More than enough food, with lots of delicious flavours. The meatballs were to die for. The service was friendly, attentive and speedy. Highly recommended. We will be... More

Like others, we were looking for a place to eat prior to seeing a play at the Stanley Theatre. This restaurant is just a few blocks from the theatre. My wife and I felt the service was attentive and friendly and also greatly enjoyed the food. Both of us had veal and we also had an cheese and tomato appetizer... More

Staying in Shaughnessy

Neighbourhood Profile
Residential neighbourhood to the ultra-wealthy, the gorgeous manor houses centred around The Crescent area are a fabled sight to behold. Shaughnessy is Vancouver's most verdant plotted neighbourhood, and its tree-lined streets, walking routes, bike trails, and charming public parks make for an ideal location to spend and afternoon communing with nature. Consequently, it is also the botanical centre of the city, featuring conservatories and an expansive Botanical Garden, taming and sculpting the wild into seasonal viewing areas and enchanting landscapes. Quiet, elegant Shaughnessy excels at providing the Three Gs: Gardens, Golfing, and Galleries.
