Found this on Trip Advisor. We were staying in the West End and the restaurant was a pleasant walk down tree lined streets from our hotel. Be sure and have the address with you because it is easy to miss mixed in with the residential neighborhood. The food was very good and our waiter was pleasant and attentive. We did... More

I booked a work dinner at Adesso and was quite happy with the experience. It's in a residential neighborhood, which was unexpected but charming. The outdoor patio was really nice but the interior looks intimate as well. Everyone in the party enjoyed the food and drink and I will be back again.

This restaurant in the residential part of Vancouver's West End has great patio dining. If eating outside during summer days, be sure to have your sunglasses ready. Even with overhead protection, its still very bright. The service was cordial. We were a group of seven and three meals arrived long after the first four did. The brunch menu had a... More

The ambiance was quite, low key and very friendly. It was a little to cozy with little elbow room on the patio. The food and service was excellent

Don't get me wrong the food is good, better than average. But it still was below my expectation based on the restaurant ranking, interiour, menu complexity and the waiter's attitude. We have ordered few dishes. Antipasti platter was average and expansive Ragu di Anatra was disappointing, just an average pasta with some meat Brasato was good, but the meet had... More

Adesso is our favorite neighborhood place. Wonderful food, prosecco on tap, and an excellent prix-fixe dinner menu during the week. Impeccable and friendly waitstaff. There is a beautiful patio that is lovely to sit out in nice weather and imagine you are in Italy.

We shared the pizza and risotto among the four of us for starters, then braised short ribs and gnocchi. Delicious. Great service. Lovely patio in lovely neighborhood in West End. Definitely not touristy.

Loved the food, the outdoor space is gorgeous and quiet. It is a very popular restaurant so it may be worth booking in advance or going early.
