Off the busy strip, lovely patio, attentive service

The first thing that sets Adesso apart from the crowd is it's location. Off the main drag on a quiet street with a patio on a green space. A true refuge within the city. Not being familiar with Vancouver I had booked a big name restaurant in the west end to make certain I had a reservation in... read more

What a great find this was! We were able to sit on the patio which had a great atmosphere on a beautiful summer evening. Staff was very friendly during the entire night. Great service, with a smile and a joke here and there. The cocktails we had to start were one of the best we ever had at a restaurant.... More

The owners are a most charming and welcoming couple.We were seated on the patio which was just so lovely and welcoming. Our server was professional with a great knowledge of food and... More

Great neighborhood restaurant in downtown Vancouver. Able to have outside seating in secluded off street patio. If going late evening recommend reservations as outside seating is limited. Our meals of lobster with risotto and mussels and pasta were both excellent. Definitely have dessert either chocolate mousse or the cheesecake are very good and tasty. Staff was helpful and attentive until... More

A recent date night brought us to Adesso and it was a great choice! We sat outside in the courtyard, lovely atmosphere. The food was surprisingly good - we shared a bunch of stuff including the farinata It was different from what I remember from my trip to Italy - fairly warned by our server - but still very tasty!...

Adesso was recommended to us by our B & B. We liked it so much, we went back again for our last night in Vancouver. Try Antipasti as a shared starter or a snack - delicious! Our duck and sword fish main courses were great too.

The menu is quite extensive and everyone in my party had wonderful food. The server was attentive and very patient. My daughter's old fashioned wasn't to her liking so he made it right and comped the drink. I had the yellow fin tuna and it was delicious. Time between order and serving was a little long. The atmosphere is quite... More

We had not been to the restaurant for some time due to our absence out of town but were treated as long lost friends including through expressions of genuine interest and friendly chit chat about what was happening in our lives. And this only paled to the quality and excellence of the dishes which we were served

What a lovely treat! This is perfect trattoria, located in a residential part of town. They were able to accommodate our group of seven and still provide attentive service. We were seated in the garden, which was lovely. There was a variety of meat, seafood, and pasta dishes. With a group this large, we had the opportunity to view several... More
