My boyfriend and I had the pleasure of dining at Adesso Bistro this past weekend and it was such a great experience. We have had Italian food at many restaurants in Vancouver but this was definitely one of the best. The food and service was excellent. We will be returning very soon!

I made a reservation for 25 people for my 30th birthday dinner. They were very accommodating and the night was so great. The food is excellent and service was outstanding! We will definitely be going back again soon. Love the atmosphere as well.

This is not just another great restaurant in Vancouver. Aside from the delicious and knowledgeably prepared food and a good selection of drinks, this place is exceptional because the staff is professionally trained, attentive yet unintrusive. In too many other restaurants, the evening is ruined by the staff thinking they are there to entertain you whether you wish it or... More

Italian dishes, some classic, and new to us, delicious without exception. Our server was fantastic; on the spot when we wanted her and totally unintrusive otherswise, an excellent and surprisingly impartial guide to the best choices. The host and hostess (owners?) were welcoming and friendly. Easy walking distance from our base at the Sylvia Hotel.

I have been to Adesso several times, and on this occasion, we brought some friends who had never been before. The food, as usual, was amazing, with the pizza ai fungi to start (with a truffle aroma), and I had the spaghetti frutti di mare. My fiance had the gnocchi, and our friends had some kind of ravioli looking dish... More

This was perhaps one of the best fine dining experience I've had in my life. The server was amazing and the food was cooked well. We ordered the mushroom pizza as appetizer (which was good, but could have been toasted a little more on the bottom), the veal and the seafood ossobucco. The delivery was timely. The lighting was very... More

Dinner at the Adesso is like dining at a popular European destination. Great atmosphere, excellent service and a good choice of dishes on the menu. Another top mark to the fresh ingredients and the piping hot food. We have been looking just for something like the Adesso in Vancouver as we spend all holidays in France and Italy and miss... More

Forget the (luckily rare) negative reviews here. This is one of the best restaurants in Vancouver; personalized service, knowledgeable staff and creatively prepared cuisine in a warm atmosphere, perfect for a winter meal on the town. We return regularly to Adesso even after trying other trendy spots. Always feels like comfort food. Anyone who complains about a restaurant and gives... More
