"We thoroughly enjoyed our dining evening at Portobello Ristorante. The service was excellent but allow for time for the chef, we were a bit late arriving. The food was excellent and beautifully presented. Exactly right for a pre theatre evening. We will definitely return to sample more of the menu."

"We have been on the search for a neighbourhood mid-priced Italian restaurant in Vancouver for many years. We were looking forward to our dinner at Portobello with friends, but it was sadly disappointing. My husband is part Italian and we both love food, so it's possible that our standards are on the high side....but basics like good service, manners, overcooked food, etc. can't be ignored.
It took over 10 minutes to receive menus or a greeting from a server. A bad start. The place is small, so it would have taken our server just a second to tell us that he'd be with us soon. He seemed stressed, annoyed and rushed most of the evening - it's a tough job, I get it, but it unfortunately his attitude managed to seep into our experience of the restaurant.
The food: the ciabatta buns were several days old (dry and crumbly) and came with a skimpy serving of olive oil/balsamic. Portions were surprisingly generous but we ate overcooked calamari and veal. The risotto was okay. They are known for their gnocchi, but it was sold out by 7:30pm.
While I know we should probably give it another chance, there are so many other restaurant options in Vancouver. Maybe if we're going to a show or event close by and need somewhere that takes reservations."

"We enjoyed our pre-theatre dinner there with friends. Repeat for us, first time for them. It was really disappointing that they didn't have two of their signature dishes available, the Osso Bucco and their house made Gnocchi, especially since it was early enough in the evening that they couldn't have run out already. Overall an enjoyable meal and good service. Recommend this place for pre-theatre."

"We love small, intimate neighbourhood restaurants like this one. We choose them whenever we can over larger, more formal ones. We like the quieter ambience and the owner's interest in her guests and their welfare. The food is wonderful as well at Portobello. For a leisurely dining experience, good food, and an opportunity for meaningful conversation with friends, Portobello is our choice."

"We were 2 couples at Portobello for Dine Out Vancouver. The space is quite small, with maximum number of tables, which made for it feeling very tight,....but not overly uncomfortable,....but it might be for some. Service was efficient and friendly,.....and the food was excellent. The portions were large, even for the special menu, so it was great value for the money,.....this was a $30 location, for 3 full courses."

"The caesar salad was a great starter. We ordered the veal marsala and parmagana and they both tasted excellent. The restaurant was busy at 6:30 pm and were turning tables the whole time we were there, so a reservation would be a good idea. We will be returning another time to enjoy the great service and tasty Italian dishes."

"This is the 2nd time we dined at this restaurant. The 1st time was interesting and flavours fresh and delightful. This time, maybe because of the Dine Out Promo, the pasta tasted like it sat for some time and not steaming hot with the aromas of spices and garlic. I really enjoyed the Tiramisu nevertheless."

"Limited menu but that may have been because it was new years eve. Caesar salad was very good as was the molten lava dessert. Waiter was friendly and efficient."

"We are always looking for another restaurant to try when we head to the Stanley Theatre 8pm performance. We want it to be good quality and service, well priced, timely and willing to take a reservation. On all accounts, this restaurant did that. The food was very, very good. A unexpected find!"

"A lovely little place. We've always had a good time here. The service is always very nice. We had the table de hotel this time and the veal was wonderful and very reasonably price. The restaurant is modern with fresh and interesting artwork and never too noisy. Highly recommended."

"We decided to try this restaurant and we were very happy with our decision. The place is fairly quiet, even on the friday that we went, and it's very well kept which made for a good first impression.
Our server, Martin, was exceptionally friendly and did an excellent job throughout the night. All our meals came out in a reasonable amount of time and were a perfect temperature.
The portobello appetizer that we had was delicious. The penne and sausage dish which had just the right kick to it, while the pesto linguine was excellent as well.
I would definitely go back there, and I have already recommended to friends and family that if they are ever out in Vancouver, that Portobello is a pretty good meal. The price is perfect as they are quite reasonable and the meals are excellent.
