My husband found this restaurant online, and we love Italian food. We looked online and there were no reservations to be had. We strolled over anyway, and the delightful host not only managed to find a table in less than 10 minutes but it was also outside- very romantic. We had the mussels, the lobster/asparagus risotto (a must) and the... More

The first thing that sets Adesso apart from the crowd is it's location. Off the main drag on a quiet street with a patio on a green space. A true refuge within the city. Not being familiar with Vancouver I had booked a big name restaurant in the west end to make certain I had a reservation in hand to... More

What a great find this was! We were able to sit on the patio which had a great atmosphere on a beautiful summer evening. Staff was very friendly during the entire night. Great service, with a smile and a joke here and there. The cocktails we had to start were one of the best we ever had at a restaurant.... More

The owners are a most charming and welcoming couple.We were seated on the patio which was just so lovely and welcoming. Our server was professional with a great knowledge of food and... More

Great neighborhood restaurant in downtown Vancouver. Able to have outside seating in secluded off street patio. If going late evening recommend reservations as outside seating is limited. Our meals of lobster with risotto and mussels and pasta were both excellent. Definitely have dessert either chocolate mousse or the cheesecake are very good and tasty. Staff was helpful and attentive until... More

A recent date night brought us to Adesso and it was a great choice! We sat outside in the courtyard, lovely atmosphere. The food was surprisingly good - we shared a bunch of stuff including the farinata It was different from what I remember from my trip to Italy - fairly warned by our server - but still very tasty!...

Adesso was recommended to us by our B & B. We liked it so much, we went back again for our last night in Vancouver. Try Antipasti as a shared starter or a snack - delicious! Our duck and sword fish main courses were great too.

The menu is quite extensive and everyone in my party had wonderful food. The server was attentive and very patient. My daughter's old fashioned wasn't to her liking so he made it right and comped the drink. I had the yellow fin tuna and it was delicious. Time between order and serving was a little long. The atmosphere is quite... More
