Overall food quality and meal experience was good. I usually don't like to use the word "nice" but this place just felt nice. A comfy, friendly neighbourhood spot.

We felt very welcome by the staff and sat down to a nice table. We were given very tasty focaccia bread to start with and accompanied those with... More

Not sure if it was because of the volume, or the Christmas set menu. The food at best was a 3-3.5 star, while the busboys were professional and polite, our server to us felt like she was testy and feisty. First appetizer was a choice between chestnut soup, squid salad or fried rice beef ball. We had the squid salad... More

As is custom in our household, on birthdays my wife and I take one another to dine at a restaurant of his/her choice. Being that I am a July baby, this year I asked for sunny hot weather and a meal on a patio. To my pleasant surprise my wife called Adesso Bistro and arranged for a table for a... More

We needed a nearby spot before heading out to see Stuart McLean and the Vinyl Cafe at the Elizabeth Theatre; Adesso was a decent hike from the theatre but mere steps from our hotel. It had rave reviews so we decided to give it a shot. It was a good choice. The ambiance of the place is nice; neither too... More

Had a delicious meal in this hidden gem of a restaurant. Both the pork loin and tuna were fantastic. The staff were really friendly and the restaurant as a whole had a really good atmosphere. The only problem was discovering this place on the last night if our holiday! We will definitely recommend adesso to any friends planning a visit... More

I recently celebrated my birthday here with 23 other guests and we had an amazing time. We took up about half of the restaurant. The food was fantastic and the servers very accommodating. Great atmosphere. Everyone really enjoyed their food and felt comfortable and well taken care of, also got feedback that it was reasonably priced for such good quality... More

We arrived for our second visit last week. Our host looked at us with a weird glance. we didn't take it personal: he did it with all comers. We had risotto and arctic char, preceded by chickpea bread that cost $10. Not bad but its food cost is probably $1.50. The char was overcooked and the watery (not creamy) risotto... More

Based on the outstanding reviews and my love for everything Italian, I made reservations here on the short. The owners Luciano & his wife went out of their way to accommodate me & my party. We arrived a bit early and were pleasantly welcomed in to enjoy a drink, whereby not only do we enjoy a drink, but also idle... More
