Tucked-away Italian eatery offering a large variety of classic dishes, from cioppino to osso buco.- Google
"The best thing on our plates was the spaghetti squash."
"They could have served olive oil and a better bread while we waited."

Service is really slow. Servers are friendly, but its 2 hours since we sat down, and we just finished entrees. I'd like my dinners to be done in 2 hours.

The food is incredible and the service is top notch. The waiter apologized for our "long wait" (it was not long at all) by offering us free desert. Very friendly.

We were early (6pm) and had great service (thanks Nate!) We had calamari (huge and tasty -- but eventually it was too much fried stuff and we didn't finish), halibut (not bad), and osso bucco (my first one and I didn't like it -- it tastes like irish stew from a can). Bill was $70 + tip (but we had the $40 groupon). The best thing on our plates was the spaghetti squash. I might come back and give it another chance.

food was ok but nothing special. the mushroom pasta was petty good but the linguine and clam sauce had to much lemon. they tried to fix it and tasted the same. very pricy for the quality.

I regret that day and that impulse which made me buy Groupon for Al Porto Ristorante. It happened that I've been there twice, and both times it was very disappointing. First time I went there with my mom who came from Russia. I hoped to show her some fine dining experience of Vancouver. If I knew how I was wrong! We ordered food and guess what, we waited for our order for.....45 minutes! As we were told the chef screwed up and somehow missed our order. Am I supposed to be happy with that explanation???? As an apology they offered free dessert which my mom accepted. Second time I went there on November 25th, with my friend. This time the food was on time and it was good, and I almost changed my opinion about this place but.... There's always a but, right? When it came to payment the price was adjusted to Groupon discount, and I tipped from that amount. But the server (John Rives, namely) said exactly this: "You HAVE to tip from the full amount". Can you imagine this???? First of all, I DON'T HAVE to tip if I don't feel like that. Second, tips NEED to be deserved which didn't happen (this time they brought dessert menu but didn't come to take the order for 10 minutes although the restaurant was almost empty. In the end, my friend decided against dessert because of waiting time). And they want tips after that??? When the guy saw the tips amount he didn't even try to conceal how he was disappointed... Guess, how disappointed we were! Never again!
