We love this restaurant for it's fresh food and quality. The linguine alle vongole are the best in town. Small, intimate restaurant but vibrant This restaurant is not open for lunch only dinner.

There are so many terrific restaurants in Vancouver do not waste your time visiting this uninspired, tired restaurant. We could not bring ourselves to finish our mushy appetizers and my wife put her fork down after one ravioli from her main. The seafood risotto was pretty good so we shared it. We left hungry and disappointed. The service was also... More

I was in for dinner last week, and had the linguini vongole, while my date had the spaghetti bolognese. Both of our dishes were phenomenal, and very fairly priced. Even in a packed restaurant, the service never suffered and our food was brought to us quite quickly. I would highly recommend stopping in for a nice romantic evening with your... More

A catch up visit with friends, we were seated at a very quiet table by the kitchen; no problem, as the serving staff were quietly in and out the curtained separation. No noise from the kitchen, and we were able to have a lovely visit over dinner. Joe, our server, is extremely knowledgeable, great attitude, wonderful sense of humour, as... More

So nice to have a reliable neighbourhood restaurant. Food is consistently fabulous. Portions are healthy and made fresh to order. The owners make us feel like family and are so welcoming. Reminds me of the days when my Dad had his own restaurant. The pasta has always been cooked perfectly and the veal is so delish! This place will continue... More

Last night we revisited our favorite neighborhood restaurant. There was no waiting for our reservation. If you are looking for authentic homemade Italian cuisine, a cozy romantic atmosphere then consider dining at the Portobello. When I have friends from out of town I like to take them to a restaurant that is unique, one of a kind. In other words,... More

Excellent food, very fine service in a lovely cozy restaurant that we are very fond of. Pino and Rosa are fantastic hosts and their staff always comes through for us. We had the seafood pasta with nice glasses of wine and dessert. The meal is always so enjoyable there. We will be back for sure.

Food was good, atmosphere was nice, staff were friendly. Giving this place 1 star because they screwed up our meal and handled it very poorly. We were brought the wrong food, we agreed to eat it out of convenience, waiter thanks us and says "I'll take care of it" multiple times. We finish and say we're not interested in dessert,... More

My family and I just enjoyed a delicious meal at Portobello Ristorante in Vancouver. We wandered in because the ambiance looked inviting as did the menu. We all enjoyed our meals immensely. The service was warm, friendly and knowledgeable and the food was delicious. My Cioppino was served piping hot and was very filling as were the other meals ordered‎.... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Shaughnessy
Residential neighbourhood to the ultra-wealthy, the gorgeous manor houses centred around The Crescent area are a fabled sight to behold. Shaughnessy is Vancouver's most verdant plotted neighbourhood, and its tree-lined streets, walking routes, bike trails, and charming public parks make for an ideal location to spend and afternoon communing with nature. Consequently, it is also the botanical centre of the city, featuring conservatories and an expansive Botanical Garden, taming and sculpting the wild into seasonal viewing areas and enchanting landscapes. Quiet, elegant Shaughnessy excels at providing the Three Gs: Gardens, Golfing, and Galleries.
