I love the atmosphere in this restaurant on Haro St. In the West End of Vancouver. Quiet, serene, good drinks and a wonderful seafood pasta. Reservations, patio dining in good weather, an attentive staff, and excellent food and drink.... who could want more.

Chose this restaurant thanks to its Tripadvisor reviews. What a delightful patio in the middle of a residential neighborhood! Servers were fabulous with a lot of character. Enjoyed the squid ink pasta, lovely wine list, and really wish there had been room for dessert. Will definitely return when in Vancouver again.

This is a very lovely Italian bistro with a great private treed patio in Vancouver's West End. The menu is extensive and the prices are reasonable. We had the gnocchi, swordfish, pasta with fruit ti de mare and pizza al fungi -- all excellent. The staff and service is intimate and fun. An original!

I could not fault the mussels cooked specially for me without onions and the smoked chicken breast was good. The service was fast and helpful. But the ambience is what just took the edge off the experience. The room is a long rectangle except for a nook at one end. It is dark, and black furniture and dull cream walls... More

Tucked away in the quiet streets behind denman this is well worth a visit. Authentic italian food with a few surprises like the chick pea 'bread' (more like a polenta) and the basil sorbet. Braised beef was melt in the mouth stuff. Highly recommended.

We had a fabulous meal on the patio of this amazing bistro. The atmosphere was delightful, the waiter was very knowledgeable, the menu selections varied and the wine list commendable. We had looked forward to eating here for a long time but waited to share the experience with good friends. No one was disappointed.

If you've ever had a waiter come to your table while you are finishing your entree and ask in a perfunctory manner if everything is okay, then you'll know what dining at Adesso is like. There's really nothing wrong about Adesso except that it is tired, or at least it felt that way on the Thursday night we visited. Or... More
