We enjoyed the ambiance- warm and cozy despite the fact that the place is quite big- but done well in little corners and nooks.
The food was delicious and our server was excellent- there when you need him but not there when you don't .
The prices were very reasonable which we felt was very good value for the food we got.
Overall it was a lovely evening!! We would definitely be back.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother great Al Porto experienceOur 3rd visit and very enjoyable again. Good food, service and ambiance with the tile floors, archways and Italian pottery. All food and wine questions were answered in detail. The wine we chose was very different tasting and not to our liking and a 2nd choice was readily offered. The sommelier brought the bottle to the table and agreed that our 1st choice was not to everyone's liking. My saltombocca was very good, but lacked fresh sage leaves. Our server brought back info from the chef that the sage was incorporated in the sauce. All very helpful and pleasant. Mussel appetizer was great!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAlso had early bird dinnerAlso had early bird dinner specials that included soup or salad that was a nice option.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a nice go away lunchWe had a nice go away lunch for a long-time colleague. Blair, our server, went out his way to make our lunch a very memorable one.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service, food etc.Excellent service, food etc. One exception being the Cannelloni. Too heavy on the spinach not representative of the ricotta. Totally recommend creating your own one of a kind dish as well as the menu. More than happy to accommodate this option for you.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, loud placeAll our food was prepared right, taste was perfect. Ambiance is loud, ( expected for such a busy and big restaurant). They know their seafood and wine. Would highly recommend!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWhether Dine-Out VancouverWhether Dine-Out Vancouver or my 60th birthday, Al Porto is the perfect destination. Food and service second to none. Great wine list and don't let some of the more expensive wines keep you from trying something new. Can't wait to go back.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWine list was pretty expensive,Wine list was pretty expensive, but overall prices were not bad. We very much enjoyed our dinner.
The seafood appetizer was outstanding. The goat cheese and pear salad was yummy, and the rack of lamb was done to perfection.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMwonderful restaurantsplendid service, good collection of local wines. Only one thing, little bothers me is location. Surroundings of this restaurant is not really good. little old.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAn experience not just food...If you are looking for a dining experience this is the spot. The food is delightful a little reminder of food that moma used to make. As someone who has eaten here on many occasions, I find it hard to resist. It’s a versitle spot where you can meet good friends, take out a client or share a glass of wine with someone you love. The portions are adequate and filling, leaving you feeling like you got your money's worth. Best service at a restaurant in the city by far. I will definately be back!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
