Located just a couple of blocks from the Lost Lagoon in Stanley Park, and about a block off Denman Street, this is well suited for walking to on a Summer evening if you live in the West End (in which case you probably already know about it) or are staying at one of the west end hotels. Adesso's is in... More

Whenever we are in Vancouver Adesso's has become our go to place. The staff are always warm and welcoming, and has become our home away from home. I love the mussel's done in a white wine herb, garlic sauce and the Pizza ai fungi is addicting. One of my favourite meals is the Gallina Affumicata which is alder wood smoked... More

This is the place my husband and I always go to when we would like a quiet romantic evening together with great food and wine. We like the friendly wait staff that always have good recommendations for the wine paring. Also happy to take our friends there for intimate parties with lots of martinis.

My family and I went to Adesso this weekend for dinner on the advice of a West End resident friend. A very enjoyable and tasty experience. The atmosphere is comfortable and, unlike in some more trendy Vancouver Italian restaurants, it was easy for the four to carry on a conversation. Food was exceptional. The antipasti platter had some interesting additions... More

Lovely neighbourhood location, cozy atmosphere, great food, and above all, exceptional service. Our waiter (tall, British gentleman) was one of the best we have ever had anywhere. A perfect combination of attentiveness and congeniality and obviously very well trained. Thorough knowledge of proper service including not clearing away plates until everyone is finished eating - something rarely seen nowadays as... More
