The evening was so enjoyable. One of the best features of Al Porto is that they have round tables. We had a party of 6, so a round table facilitated great conversations. The feature of halibut with prawns and saffron risotto was excellent. We enjoyed out serving team who were there when needed. This is a traditional Italian restaurant with excellent food and service.
Good food, service and wine. Was an enjoyable evening.
It was great. Very quiet due to pandemic but the food was outstanding.
Incredible service every time
The food was always great ..good service by Carlos !
The greeting was warm & friendly, service was very efficient & the food was excellent. We enjoyed the whole experience. Very few people there - I hope for their sakes that people go back to dining in now that the pandemic restrictions are easing.
We were there yesterday and we loved it. The food was really excellent, and really great service. We will certainly go back. A gem to be discovered !!

Fabulous evening, amazing food and great service thanks to John!!!
He has served us before and is always very attentive!
The food was great, as always. They didn't have the full dessert menu so I tried the lemon curd for the first time and it was delicious! We were celebrating my friend's birthday so our server decorated the dessert plate with chocolate icing. We had a really nice evening.
THEY ACCEPTED OUR RESERVATION BUT WHEN WE ARRIVED THE DAMN PLACE WAS CLOSED!!! PHONE NUMBER ONLY
LED TO VOICEMAIL ALSO STATING THEY WERE
OPEN!!! So angry!!!
I made the reservation and when we we showed up Friday night the restaurant was closed. Huge disappointment because times like this we are so limited and restaurants get booked fast, at least if you stay closed put it on website and do not take reservations on OpenTable !
Although I had a reservation from Open Table, when I went there, the place was closed:(( I had a limited time to find another place. Fortunately, I found a nice one. But I do not recommend anybody getting a reservation from this place.
Al Porto reservation got confirmed but we could not dine. We got there at 7:55pm, 5 mins prior to our reservation time, and we saw a guest leaving the main lobby that connects to the restaurant. However, the door locked behind them as we reached the door. We could not open the door to access the elevator. We then went to the side door that was also put on a sign by Al Porto as available, however that door was also locked and security fenced behind. We called the restaurant repeatedly but it would go directly to voice mail, stating they were open Saturday, but to leave a message. They never called back, neither that evening nor after. We paid $12 for parking and did not get to enjoy a Mother’s Day dinner, my mother was very disappointed. Other restaurants were mostly booked by then, considering it was then past 8pm on Saturday.
Very unprofessional, and apparently they don’t even care to call back to at least apologize.
We reserved the table through open table and also got a confirmation through their automated sms system. When we showed up there, the restaurant was CLOSED! I tried calling them, but they only had a voicemail. This is terrible customer service on the restaurant and open tables part. If a Restaurant is not going to uphold open table reservations, they shouldn’t be on the app in the first place. The restaurant should have at least called and informed us that they were not open.
the restaurant is not open despite being able to reserve online and the general web presence.
Made the reservation through open table for a birthday dinner, went downtown with friends and to our surprise the restaurant was closed. My reservation was confirmed over email and there was no signs that this place wouldn't of been open. Poor management of reservation apps by this restaurant. Do better.
This restaurant has been closed for a long time but yet you let us book and then get a reminder and then have to confirm back Voicemail says it’s open as well as signage out front
It was closed even though open table and it’s website said it was open!
The restaurant was closed. Doors locked. Lights out. Nobody home! Update your data for this business!
I made a reservation for Saturday night and was closed. Drove all the way downtown.. google says was open.
The restaurant isn’t open. Their phone number and answering machine works it says their hours of operation open everyday but the doors were all locked. Please do everyone else a favour and take them off your service. Thank you
OpenTable, can you tell me why I can book a restaurant when they are closed for business? Got there and the door gated.
Don't be in a rush when you go here.
Food is awesome and worth the wait.
Very good Italian food reasonable price..big restaurant ..
The early dinner special is a very good deal, even adding $10 for the osso buco entree
This is an average Italian dining experience, nothing memorable. The service is adequate, food is reasonable, ambience is quiet so if you are looking for a quiet night out and dont mind paying on the high side, then this is an ok option.
Super fresh ingredients perfectly cooked...👍
Will definitely come back
We had an amazing experience at Al Porto. The food was amazing and our Server John W was very knowledgeable and super helpful with assisting us with the menu as this was our very first time ! We will be back again!
Service was the only good thing about this dinner. Sad because it was my Sons Birthday. The food was off. Had Salmon and Prawns from the Dine Out Vancouver menu and was sooooo fishy and stinky that it may be a while that I will be able to stomach seafood again! We ended up getting a Pizza instead. They still charged us for the Ceaser Salad from the Dine out menu ...OMG Never would I go back!
Menu looks great. Unfortunately my halibut was over cooked and dry. Veggies tasted a bit fishy...My son says his salmon meal was good. Restaurant apologized and made dessert gratis. Great space.
Amazing service. Our server was awesome and very friendly
We were really disappointed in the set menu. We came to an Italian restaurant to order some Italian food and were given a set menu of only seafood. If you don’t like seafood or are allergic to it there was only one option without it (some sort of chicken pasta). My husband and I hardly ever go out to enjoy ourselves without our 4 year old and newborn and were very much looking forward to spending Valentine’s dinner together over good Italian food. Unfortunately instead we had this seafood set menu and ended up getting fast food on our way home. Definitely not coming here for any more special occasions and definitely disappointed in the experience.
There for Dine out Vancouver
A good dine out menu - tasty good value and good service. It’s worth trying if you have not been
Never disappoints....we are regulars to this place and the food is just so good. Linguine pescatore is to die for!!! And the pizzas out of this world....highly recommended and prized reasonably too for such fine dining experience....
Our family came here for Christmas Eve dinner - Great food, great service, great ambience!
Great place for business lunch. Food is first class, service was exceptional, I highly recommend them.
Great spot, service is always outstanding! They are following covid protocols as well! I’ll definitely be back!
Service was very good. Restaurant was not busy at all. Bit of an older interior decor. Great food. The pizza crust was amazing but needed more sauce to go with the abundance of meat.
