Zefferelli's calls itself a 'spaghetti joint' and really, that's what you get, albeit in a pretty respectable place! Even though being on Robson Street might make you think it could be for tourists (not that this is necessarily a bad thing!), this place has been around for quite a few years and their food, service and decor have remained consistent...

Went with family for dinner. Mussels were very good. Dip for bread was just so-so. Bruschetta was good but a smaller portion. Pasta was good as was dinner portion. Service started really slowly but improved.

I was able to get a seat for myself for 6:45 Sunday evening, by calling just 30 minutes ahead of time. I ordered the "spaghetti al ragu", which was very nice indeed. A glass of chianti straccali was a nice complement to my dinner, though 9.50 CAD seemed a little steep for this. Service was very good, and all the... More

We have been coming here once a year for the last 6 years. Whenever my wife and I are in Vancouver together, this is the only restaurant that is a given. It is situated on the second floor above Robson Street, so has an excellent location for shopping and doing the Robson experience. The food is amazing, and the atmosphere... More

Used to love this place until they recently started offering powdered cheese instead of fresh grated parmesan on top of the pasta. Sure they're saving a few pennies but at the cost of establishing a finer dining and more authentic experience. What else are they cutting corners on in the kitchen??

We called in one evening without booking, however, even though they were pretty well booked up and as we were early (6:30 'ish) a table was found for us. Both our dishes were substantial and delicious, we had a glass of wine and a beer between us and the bill was quite reasonable. The place quickly started to fill up... More
