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.



Please call the restaurant for parties of 7 or more. 604-683-8376
Private rooms and special menus for groups are available.

Excellent meal and very good service. Their early hour dinner is a very good deal and the portions are very healthy. Would recommend this restaurant to friends without hesitation.

Sadly, while the ambiance and service were great, the food was mediocre.

The food is absolutely excellent. The pasta is delicious, gerat place. However I think something has to be done regarding the time it takes the order to be served. After our salads were served, it took 45-50 minutes to get served with the main course, in this case, the pasta. That´s too much: by that time I had already lost my appetite and consequently I didn´t enjoyed the fabulous food as it should be.

The food was delightful, the ambiance was not. This is a great potentially, romantic and cozy space but the child friendly policy is just wrong and very disrespectful to patrons that may be celebrating a birthday, anniversary or an otherwise romantic evening out.

The pasta New Years Eve was definitely not good for an Italian restaurant ,,Three had pasta and the other two had the lamb....
The rack of lamb was very good
Would of liked more pasta on menu,,,,not just red pasta

Good location. Lots to do and see after dinner within walking distance. The food is a little overpriced. Nevertheless it was tasty and the wine list has a good assortment.

We had our family Christmas Eve dinner at Al Porto and we couldn't have been better taken care of. The food and wine were excellent and the service was friendly and professional. We had a large group, yet everything went seamlessly.

Restaurant meals on holidays can be tricky, mostly because there's a chunk of the staff who would really rather be home. We've eaten at restaurants all over the US on both Christmas and Christmas Eve, and had service that we had to accept as the best possible under the circumstances. Well, if that is Al Porto's service on a holiday, their regular service must be outstanding.

I would definitely recommend this spot!!
