Al Porto Ristorante Reviews List

Al Porto Ristorante

Gastown's popular Water Street is alive with the taste of another era. Meander down the cobbled sidewalk and stumble across a true find, the uniquely situated Al Porto Ristorante. Spacious yet cozy, the room is as distinct as the cuisine that defines the rich flavour, and culture of Italy.



Private rooms and special menus for groups are available. Enjoy the scenic view of the Burrard Inlet and North Shore from the private Loft.



Candlelight and a warm welcome await you as you cross through the iron-gate.

"We were visiting Vancouver for a week, and after several seafood meals we wanted something different. However, when we saw King Crab on the menu for $39 (as opposed to $75 at a place we'd been to the night before), we had to try it. We couldn't believe it when our waitress brought out two huge plates of perfectly prepared crab legs, along with a delicious basil butter dipping sauce and sides of pasta and roasted vegetables. There had to have been two pounds of crab in each serving. One order probably would have been enough for both of us, but we somehow managed to eat most of it anyway."

"Go there every New Years Eve. Calamari outstanding - main course, Cannelloni the best my wife has ever tasted. My scallops a bit overdone but otherwise the prawn and scallop dish was excellent. Drinks were great. Nice atmosphere. Really a nice evening for us."

"The ambiance of the restaurant is why you dine here. Wanted a quiet romantic dinner for two and that's what we got there. The decor is Italian styled and the service was very good from our servers. We had the Cioppino and the Veal Saltimbocca which were tasty, especially the Cioppino with its fresh seafood in the Putinesca soup. Slightly a bit salty but it was still great."

"If you want great food, service and ambiance, this Italian spot in Gastown is perfect. I had the veal with mushrooms and it was amazing. My husband had the prawns/scallops with risotto and loved it. If you go during Happy Hour they have some great deals on food and beverage."

"I came across Al Porto while in town for a conference. I haven't lived in Vancouver for over 20 years and don't visit it much but there was immediately something familiar about Al Porto. After reaching back in my memory I asked the waiter if this place used to be called "Umberto's". Sure, enough this was one of the Umberto restaurants in the 80s and early 90s. Good solid, Italian food. Good service and great ambiance. Recommend."

"Don't let the headline fool you. My experience at Al Porto on this one occasion was the exception to the usual. In this case, the food was not up to their usual standards.
I had the penne with wild mushrooms and the pasta was poorly cooked. The sauce and mushrooms tried valiantly to compensate but fell short. Lunch was up in their loft because a TV production had taken over the whole lower level. The staff did their best to look after everyone, but perhaps the disruption downstairs resulted in challenges for the quality of their dishes.
There have been many great lunches and dinners for me and my friends at Al Porto, and I have no doubt that the next occasion will be 'exceptional' in the right direction."

"We have had both lunch and dinner here on several occasions and find that the food and the service are very good. Recently, we had lunch and thoroughly enjoyed their excellent pizza with a caprese salad which they made especially for us in a 1 1/2 order to share. Their prices are very reasonable and we left feeling that we definitely had our money's worth - a nice feeling! The only issue we have ever had is that sometimes the restaurant is overheated - staff don't seem to know why this happens, but it would be nice if it could be fixed."

"Terrible food. We ordered crab cakes, Tagliatelle Buongustaio & Linguine Pescatore (changed to cream sauce). The salmon & halibut actually stink, and all the pastas are very dried & hard. Service & ambiance are quite good."

"I had just returned from a trip to Italy and was very excited to meet a good friend of mine for dinner to show her pics, etc so we chose Al Porto for dinner for Italian food and to get in the spirit of Italy. The restsurant's ambience was actually quite nice, and looked very Italian. The food was mediocre in my mind, but I just got back from Italy where the bar was raised quite high. Regarding the service: the hostess and manager greeted us beautifully, but our server was so curt, rude, and was not interested in smiling or having any form of polite conversation. He was only nice when the manager was in the vicinity of our table. The unbelievable part was when we went to pay, he saw how much I paid on my visa, saw some cash on the table as well and actually said "Where is the rest coming from?" in a disapproving tone. Your service was horrible my friend, and you were lucky enough to get 10% from us--a tip is not implied, it is earned. And if that wasn't enough, we got up to go, I waited outside while my friend went to the ladies room, and when she came out he was opening complaining to the bartender and another wait staff about his tip--then they all turned and stared at my friend with a dirty look. I am fortunate in my life to be in a position of influence, and I will never recommend this restaurant due to the server clearly does not like his job and made us feel very uncomfortable."

"There was a bit of a mix up with the food and it took a little bit longer but our waiter was excellent and the food was excellent. I would definately recommend it to others."

"I met up with a friend for dinner here, after hearing great things about this restaurant. And it didn't disappoint. The service was excellent, and the food was absolutely delicious. The restaurant has a nice ambiance for a quiet dinner with friends and loved ones. I will definitely go back!"
