A new favorite!

We found this little gem on Trip Advisor. Loved every part of it! We reserved a table on the patio. This patio was one of the prettiest , most serene little patios we have ever dined in. We tried the salumi, the zuppa (a lovely cauliflower soup) and a salad for appy's. The focaccia bread was... read more

Food was very good. But inside seating is very crowded and cramped. Additionally, low ceilings make for a very high noise level. Could not talk across the table in a normal tone of voice. Not a relaxing dining experience. Our waiter seemed overwhelmed and frenzied all night. He was abrupt and rude. Inappropriate for the price one is paying to... More

We had made reservations for outside dining and the location was lovely. Very quiet street. Great service. Duck ragout and manicotti entrees were delicious.

We had a lovely meal here. The service was great, we had a lovely waiter from New Zealand serve us and he made our experience so much more enjoyable. The food was really good and we would definitely have gone back had we had more time here.

Wonderful location for a wedding cerimony too! I'm Italian and this is the perfect restaurant in Vancouver to eat real Italian food! Handmade pasta (pasta fatta a mano), very good pizzas and traditional Italian dessert. Fantastic plates! And one of the best patio in all the city! Thank you Adesso Bistrò!

We were a large group of 30 people so we might have expected to have the service and food to be bland an impersonal. Surprise! The staff and service was excellent and the food was delightful. The wine was a little pricey.

Warm welcome, terrific food; friendly but harried staff. Excellent food (try the mushroom pizza - it's the best in the world!!!). $5 martinis. Book a table on the terrace - an oasis of calm amid the colorful meals that pass by. Every dish looks great - four of us enjoyed a wide array of tastes and none of us was... More

Martinis were great, as was the food. Maybe a little bit pricey, on the smaller side portions-wise but altogether a very pleasant and delicious meal! The tiramisu was a highlight. Service was friendly and efficient considering how busy the terrace is. Great patio for a warm summer night.

We booked based on Trip reviews, but sadly this was a mixed bag. Service was friendly but chaotic - wine (which was delicious) ordered early but arrived as we finished up our starters for example. Meals were variable. I thought the fritto misto was disappointing, too little and not good enough quality, but other plates were fine. Generally not what... More

We were delighted to find this alternative to the many small restaurants along Denman Street. Adesso’s is altogether quieter, with a fine terrace away from the busy streets. The food is really good and, to my mind, reasonably priced. Taking advantage of the early diner’s cocktail offer, I had the best Caesar in a while, too. A happy find!
