This was the second time we have been to Potobello. Both times we have been extremely impressed with the service and with the flexibility of the chef to change a sauce in a dish if doable. Although the dishes may not be the absolute best I have had, they are definitely very good. And the ambience is relaxed and friendly.
We really enjoyed our experience at Portobello. Food was delicious, service was impeccable. Waiter had a lovely personality. All in all we had a lovely evening.
As always—delicious, pleasant, both friendly and elegant. Perfect!
Excellent dinner! Salmon fettuccine came with an abundance of salmon. Great service!
I love this small, cozy restaurant! Very friendly wait staff and delicious food. A must try!
The scallops and prawns in the rice dish were overcooked and somewhat chewy. The service was friendly and prompt. There were no mussels available the day of our visit.
Good simple Italian food cooked by Italian chef with a great cooking tradition.
Enjoyable Mother’s Day dinner with friends. Good value and good food. Desserts worthy of Michelin star restaurants! Definitely will return.
Always a favorite Cosy feeling and we are always treated well and food is amazing. Deserts are all homemade as well Neighborhood treasure
I have always loved Portobello and will continue to dine there, with family and friends.
Can I book again for May 22nd at 6:00 p.m. for two (2) ..........molto fungi and tiramisu............please
Dinner before play at Stanley theatre. 15% off food meal if you show your same day theatre ticket. Good Italian pasta food. Caesar salad was excellent
Very nice hosts remember their clients
The food is outstanding - show up hungry the portions are generous. A wide selection of food to choose from, and try to leave room for the succulent home made deserts. Family run, I have never had a bad experience with the food or the service. A Vancouver hidden gem!
Great little spot ! Perfect for date night. Not too crowded or noisy. Cozy , great service.
Osso bucco is amazing!
Meatballs also fantastic!
Veal cooked perfectly
Deserts just like you would find in Italy!
Been 3 times now. Will go back!
Love the fact that Pino has been serving delicious Italian food to Vanvouverites for over 40 years and not only that, he is in my neighbourhood! Veal dishes, seafood dishes, pasta, burratta from Italy, and at all agreeable prices! Professional, yet friendly, service and attractive decor and atmosphere.
What’s not to like about a restaurant like this!
(Free parking on the street after 7 and some in the back!.)
Good service and great food a bit noisy on a Saturday night but manageable. One of our group was a little unhappy with the a amount of pasta sauce so it was taken off the bille
Excellent restaurant! This was my second time coming here and it was just as good as the first time. Food was delicious (and generous portions too!), service was great, and prices are very reasonable. Will definitely come back!
A great place prior theatre. The decor changes with various artists work displayed on the walls. Portobella food is good, - all four of us dined on their pasta, and unfortunately did not have time for dessert. It was busy when we were there and the service still catered to our needs.
We will be back.
Great service but food was lacking especially for the price.
We celebrated a special family birthday at Portobello on March 16, 2019. The food and service were excellent. The osso bucco was wonderfully tender and flavourful. The portions were generous. I can't think of a way this restaurant could have improved the experience for us. Highly recommend.
Absolutely love it at portobello!
Always such a pleasure to visit Portobello. Such consistently good food, wonderful environment, and welcoming atmosphere.
As always we enjoyed another authentic Italian dinner cooked by papa! A great local restaurant where we always want to return
We had a great dinner here on a week day evening. It was very quiet and relaxing. We could talk without shouting (we’re seniors!). The waiter was very attentive and made some helpful suggestions. We will be back for sure.
seated at absolutely the worst table in restaurant while much better tables were available when we entered and we're still not occupied when we left. Went elsewhere for coffee and desert.
We had a very nice dinner, my girlfriend had the Valentines meal which had soup and dessert included, whereas I had an item off the main menu. The setting is quite intimate, and we were right at the kitchen. The service was very good and attentive and the food was very tasty. A few more potatoes or vegetables would have been nice, but I would certainly go again.
Great, good quality family-run restaurant. Good, traditional Italian cuisine and always a warm welcome
Great Valentine’s dinner shared with my lovely niece and sister-in-law. We had a nice table somewhat removed from the rest which worked out perfectly for us. Waitstaff were great and everyone enjoyed their meal.
Overall, a very pleasant and positive experience. Attentive service.
Wonderful dining experience. Fabulous food. Awesome service. We will definitely be back.
Portobello is one of our favorite restaurants. The food is outstanding, the service friendly and prompt. We will continue to go back again and again!
I tried their dineout menu tonight, that dressing on caesar salad is delicious! Veal from main course is tender, juicy and I like that cognac cream sauce. Vanilla panna cotta with rhubarb compare is light and tasty! Totally worth the money!
Our waiter was excellent - providing friendly service and recommendations - while also getting us out in time for our theatre engagement. We ate from the Dine-Out menu and the food was absolutely delicious and great value! We will be back!
The burrata salad to start was delicious as was my pasta with pesto sauce and my companion said her vongole was very good. The space between tables is a bit tight and it was a crowded night so the noise level was pretty high. Nevertheless, we would definitely go back for the food!
Great service , excellent food and dessert!
We had a group of five and were seated at a good table. Food was excellent and service outstanding
We had an excellent family dinner. The staff took good care of our two grand-children.
Portobello Ristorante never disappoints. The food is great, the service professional and efficient, and the total dining experience one to remember. So few places can live up to that claim it’s no wonder it’s so popular.
We had a lovely Christmas Eve dinner at Portobello.
