The atmosphere of this restaurant is what makes it so special. We went for dinner before a movie and the lights were low, the candles were lit, it was loud but the ambiance remained very romantic. There were a few high schoolers behind us there for a group birthday party - it seems to be the place to go for... More

I have been having meals at this restaurant for several decades. I highly recommend you make a reservation because it continues to be a busy popular place. The risotto is excellent, though offered as part of a meal. I asked that I have it as a main course and it was excellent. The wine list is excellent. The service is... More

We held a surprise birthday dinner for my husband at Zefferelli's last weekend. As always, the Owner and staff were outstanding, service and food were fabulous. The Owner brought our grandsons meals out first so they could eat while the adults were having wine & appies and checked in regularly to make sure we had all we needed. As a... More

I wanted casual in the Robson area. I wanted a place that takes reservations and was not too pricey. I wanted it close to a good meeting place. We met for happy hour and $4 drinks at the Robson Street Cactus Club and eventually made it out the door and up the next door stairs to Zeffirelli’s. We got a... More

I had the fehttuchini with crab. It was good and there was a lot of crab. I couldn't even eat half of it there was so much! If they allow sharing (I'm not sure bc I didn't ask) and you fill up quickly like me, I would share with a friend. I also really liked their bread. The waitress was... More

Very busy and very noisy place. Had no reservations but got seated right away in a nice booth. It was a Thursday night. The service was very good. Fast friendly and efficient. Chicken liver appie and kale Caesar were both good. We were not that impressed with our pasta. Ok flavour but too much sauce. With all the options Vancouver... More

We happened to be downtown yesterday so went to our Favourite Pasta Joint...As usual the service was OUTSTANDING, with both Mike the Manager and our waiter taking very good care of us. Love the food and the prices are VERY good for downtown Vancouver. Make sure to visit...

The food can be quite good at the price point and the service is generally very informal but prompt and friendly. This is a very popular restaurant, probably because it offers fairly good value for its upmarket location on Robson Street. My only complaint is that the popularity, the tightly spaced tables, the hard floor and low ceiling, all conspire... More
